The Los Angeles Lakers struggled in a number of areas during Tuesday's 114-106 loss to the Denver Nuggets in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals, but no shortcoming was as apparent as the rebounding disparity.
Davis grabbed double-digit rebounds in all five games of Los Angeles' second-round series against the Houston Rockets and finished the first two contests against Denver with a combined 19.
He is one of the better rebounders in the league, finishing 18th in the league during the regular season with 9.3 boards a night.
Despite the rebounding disparity, the Lakers still had an opportunity to win the game down the stretch.
Los Angeles trimmed a 20-point deficit to as little as three in the fourth quarter before Murray drilled two critical three-pointers and assisted a Paul Millsap dunk in the final three minutes.
