With a dramatic basket at the buzzer by Jamal Murray, the Nuggets give the Lakers their second loss in the playoffs

Denver— Jamal Murray holed a step-back jumper as the buzzer sounded and the Denver Nuggets erased a 20-point deficit in the second half to surprise the Los Angeles Lakers 101-99 on Monday night and take a 2-0 lead in their Western Conference playoff series.

The dramatic basket by Murray, who fell after taking the shot, represented the first lead for the Nuggets since they took an early 5-3 lead and gave the reigning NBA champions their 10th consecutive victory over the Lakers.

The series moves to Los Angeles for Game 3 on Thursday night.

Murray’s decisive shot came after LeBron James missed from 3-point range with 16 seconds left and the score tied at 99.

Michael Porter Jr. grabbed the rebound with 13 seconds left and the Nuggets did not call a timeout.
