With the 117-107 victory over the Nuggets in Game 5, the Los Angeles Lakers have officially secured their ticket to the NBA Finals for the first time since 2010.

LeBron James and Anthony Davis led the show, combining for 65 points, 21 rebounds, and 13 assists.

With the Lakers now just 4 wins away from their 17th title, and LeBron's fourth, the NBA community was raging with reactions all night long in the aftermath of L.A.'s huge night. Here are some of the bets that we saw:

The Nuggets should be credited for a great season. To overcome two 3-1 deficits against talented teams like the Jazz and Clippers is no joke, and they proved that they'll be players in the West for years to come.

And for the Lakers, while today's win must feel good, the job is not yet finished. They still have to win four more games and as they wait for their next opponent (Boston or Miami), you can bet they'll be ready when its time to suit up again.
