Sports analyst Shannon Sharpe shared his thoughts on the upcoming Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals between the Los Angeles Lakers and Denver Nuggets.

He expects LeBron James and company to win the game and take a commanding 3-0 lead because he expects the Lakers to approach the game as if they were 0-2.

Sharpe also praised Nikola Jokic but, at the same time, he said the Serbian center is no match for Anthony Davis.

“I love Joke. I think he’s the best big, I’m listing him as a five. I’m taking him over all other fives, including Joel Embiid. Because I can count on him playing and he’s a better passer. He can score just as proficient. He’s not the defender as Joel Embiid. But he is no match for AD and I expect him to have another monster game. And I expect the Lakers to go 3-0,” Sharpe said.
