NBA Scores Denver Nuggets vs. Los Angeles Lakers
The Los Angeles Lakers come into the Mile High City tonight to take on the Denver Nuggets. They currently sit at first place in the Western Conference, but their opponent tonight is the Denver Nuggets, and they are nipping at their heels at just three games out of first place. The Los Angeles Lakers are currently on a two-game winning streak, but they have faced off against less-than-perfect opponents. Of course, Denver is different, and they are in the middle of a four-game winning streak themselves.
In their last game, the Lakers defeated the Phoenix Suns by a score of 125-100. They were bolstered by the play of Anthony Davis, with his 25 points, 10 rebounds, and 5 assists. He worked in tandem with Rajon Rondo, who had 23 points, 6 assists, and 4 rebounds. Denver will have to guard against these two if they expect to have a shot against this Lakers team.
The Denver Nuggets had a barn-burner against the San Antonio Spurs, winning by a score of 127-120. They were assisted by Paul Millsap with 22 points, 7 rebounds, and 3 assists; and also "The Joker" Nikola Jokic with 19 points, 13 assists, and 8 rebounds. Denver will have to sharpen up their defense when they play the Lakers tonight, that is for sure.
