The Lakers have been eliminated from the playoffs following the second Jamal Murray game-winner of the series.

Murray hit the mid-range shot with three seconds left. With no timeouts, LA had to quickly inbound the ball to LeBron James, who was double-teamed and passed it to Taurean Prince for a half-court buzzer-beater.

This was a close game, but the Nuggets took over in the final minutes.

The Lakers now shift their focus to the offseason. This offseason has a ton of potential moves for the Purple and Gold. LeBron James is nearing the end of his career, meaning he could retire or become a free agent if he declines his player option.

It will be a tough offseason for Rob Pelinka and the front office, but this series will sting for a while as the Lakers were so close in all of these games against the Nuggets.
