The Los Angeles Lakers and Denver Nuggets will face off in game 1 of the NBA Western Conference Finals tonight so Doug and Dan Beyer stop down to discuss where the series will be won or lost. Dan is convinced it will be all about the role players figuring that the superstars will likely cancel each other out. It won’t be a ‘Big 3’ that determines the winner, more like the ‘Sub 3’ that plays the best.

Dan Beyer: “Whoever gets the best from their...I guess sub-3 trio if you want to say, I think wins the series.”

Doug Gottlieb: “It’s going to be fascinating to see...whose, I guess, role players play their roles to the best.”
