The Denver Nuggets will visit the Los Angeles Lakers for a Wednesday night Clash.
The Nuggets are 2nd in the West, whereas LA Lakers are struggling to find a playoff spot this season.
Let us dive deep into how things stand for them ahead of the clash.
The Nuggets have been inconsistent lately and have lost their last three games. They lost to the Spurs on Monday by a margin of just one point.
As a team, the Nuggets shot 43% from the field and seventeen three-pointers on the night. Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray have been excellent this season and will play a vital role tonight also. Also, Malik Beasley was a significant boost off the bench and scored 15 points in the last game.
The Nuggets will be hoping to get back on the winning track with a win against the struggling Los Angeles Lakers tonight.
Los Angeles Lakers
The Lakers are in trouble and need to start winning immediately. They have won just three games in their last twelve.
The loss against the Clippers was again hard to digest for the Lakers’ fans on Monday. Lebron James and Rajon Rondo were impressive but could not pull off a victory for their team. They shot ten three-pointers on the night with 41% shooting from the field.
Kyle Kuzma got hurt in the fourth quarter and will be out for tonight. Also, Ingram makes a return.
Predicted Starting Lineups:
Nuggets: Will Barton, Paul Millsap, Nikola Jokic, Gary Harris and Jamal Murray.
Lakers: LeBron James, JaVale McGee, Brandon Ingram, Rajon Rondo and Reggie Bullock.
Both the squads have defeated each other once this season. However, this Lakers’ unit has been disappointing every game.
The Nuggets will take this home with Nikola Jokic with a triple-double.
