LeBron James was unstoppable once again and helped the Los Angeles Lakers close out the series against the Denver Nuggets (107-117).

The Lakers won the series 4-1 and will play in the NBA Finals for the first time since 2010.

For his part, James posted another 30-point triple double, with 38 points, 16 rebounds and 10 assists. Anthony Davis added 27 for the winners.

On the other hand, Nikola Jokic and Jerami Grant had 20 points each for the losing squad, while Murray scored 19.

The Lakers led by as many as 16 points in the contest, yet the Nuggets came back multiple times from a double-digit deficit (84-84, 99-103).

James, though, scored nine straight points and sealed the deal for Los Angeles.

The Lakers will now face the winner of the Eastern Conference Finals series between the Miami Heat and the Boston Celtics.
