In terms of the current championship, rivals have already met each other three times. “Lakers” were stronger twice and once more “Nuggets” celebrated the victory. It is worth noting that Jamal Murray will most likely not play for the Colorado, whereas on him depends a lot in the attack. In addition, both teams are built on defense, which is confirmed by excellent statistics.
LeBron James and Co have been surrended in a way, that they have lost their last three fights. If the defeat to Oklahoma (86-105) could still be difficult to accept, then the unsuccessful performances in matches against Houston (97-113) and Indiana (111-116) gave us a pause to thought.
Frank Vogel does his best to make a bad streak end, but when big-caliber basketball players play in your team, they need to understand that it's time to improve themselves. Despite unsuccessful results, bookmakers still consider the Lakers one of the main contenders for the championship, although the “lakes” in any case need to be involved in the struggle.
Ahead, the Los Angeles club will meet with Denver, which has begun to gradually return to the previous level, which means that we will face an interesting confrontation.
Denver faced difficulties due to the abundance of grasshoppers, but they adapted to the restart of the season step by step and even began to win. Michael Malone's charges dealt with Oklahoma (121-113) in overtime, fought San Antonio (132-126) and beat Utah (134-132) in the last meeting.
Donovan Mitchell, Nikola Jokic and Michael Porter represent the star trio that are now the main threat to their rivals. It is their play that helps the team to stay on the third line.
The Nuggets players understand that they will play the role of an underdog on the floor, since on the other side there will be Lakers, who are angry after three defeats in a row, which means that it is worth getting ready for serious pressure.
“Nuggets” also faced difficulties, which made good use of “Houston”, who aims to win the third line in the Western Conference, which means, to move the “nuggets”, thus Michael Malone's charges are not desirable now to lose points.
We assume that LeBron James will find right words for his teammates and will show by his own example how to get out of difficult situations, which he did more than once throughout his career. In short, the Lakers have no choice, but to win and we think the Los Angeles-based club will not let you down.
Our prediction is the victory of the Los Angeles Lakers taking into account OT for the odds of 1.52 in the 1xBet
