The Los Angeles Lakers and Denver Nuggets will play in Game 6 of the NBA Western Conference Finals tonight. You can watch it at 9 p.m. ET on TNT.

The Lakers lead the series 3-1 and will make their first NBA Finals since 2010 with a win tonight. It’s also notable that this is season the first time the Lakers have made the NBA Playoffs in seven seasons, though having a healthy LeBron James and Anthony Davis certainly helps things in that respect.

The Nuggets have never won an NBA conference title, but this is their fourth appearance in the conference finals in franchise history. They did make the ABA Finals in 1975-76 however where they lost to the New York Nets.

Enjoy the game everyone!
