In their last five individual games the Lakers have won three wins. Since the start of the playoffs Denver have played 14 games. The Lakes have not lost for four matches, while the nuggets have three victories in a row.


It's worth starting with the fact that last season the team was left without playoffs, so Anthony Davis from New Orlean was invited to help King James. This celebrity couple formed a powerful duo that quickly helped the club to rise to the top spot in the Western Conference.

Of course, most experts began to declare that now the Lakers are the main contender for the championship and, as time has shown, the team is getting closer to its dream.

In the first round of the playoffs, Frank Vogel's charges dealt with Portland. Even though they lost one match, but this did not affect the overall picture. In the next episode, the “lake” defeated “Houston”, which was supposed to impose a fight on the leader of the West, but the Rockets quickly fell apart.

LeBron James and company are aiming to compete for a ticket to the final against Denver, from which they were unlikely to expect such a successful result.


The "nuggets" may already be happy, because the team has passed quite serious rivals and few expected to see it in the final of the West, but the character and desire to win prevailed.

It all started with a confrontation against "Utah", which grabbed the opponent with "claws" and did not let go. Each time Michael Malone's charges came forward, the "jazzmen" pulled themselves together and compared the score, so the seventh match decided everything. Nikola Jokic played a fantastic match, made a double-double and did everything for his team to pass the Jazz (80- 78).

In the second round Denver faced the Clippers and faced a powerful attack from Paul George and Kawhi Leonard. After four matches the Nuggets flew in a series 1-3, so everything went to the fact that the season for them could end. The team went all-in, approached each next fight fully collected and motivated, which helped to do the almost impossible, because he transferred the series to the seventh fight, where he “slammed” the opponent (104-98).

In the final of the West Michael Malone's guys are again waiting for an opponent from Los Angeles. However, he is more dangerous, so they need to prepare properly.


Denver was a real playoff discovery as they did a lot of work before reaching the West Finals. On the other hand, Michael Malone's charges have spent a lot of energy, as they have already played 14 tough matches.

The Lakers have played only two games and have had more time to prepare for the confrontation with the Nuggets, although LeBron James most likely expected to see the Clippers as rivals. In short, we expect the "Lakes" to take advantage of the problems of "nuggets" and win.

Our prediction is the victory of the Los Angeles Lakers taking into account the handicap (-3.5) points for the odds of 1.52 in BC 1xBet
