I agree with this but at the same time Denver has better lebron defenders than Houston/Portland in Grant, Craig, and even Millsap
And the Lakers, it should be said, were possibly the worst offensive team coming into the playoffs, with their lack of any players capable of creating their own shot beyond Lebron or AD (who isn’t even very good in that regard). Of course, the postseason tradition of Playoff Rondo emerging from his den and declaring another two weeks of random 20 pt/12 assist nights might change that narrative but in terms of teams Denver CAN play good defense against, the Lakers are almost ideal (almost because they still have two top ten players on their roster and a long list of big men they can throw at Jokic to slow him down).

I just hope Denver wins, Lakers defndeing murray like they did harden/Lillard won’t work with the ball movement Denver has
