The Denver Nuggets are 1-0 so far into the season. They are a strong team but with a few injuries, which is not rare at all. Isaiah Thomas is out. Will Barton too. Further, Jarred Vanderbilt has a day-to-day status. Surely, things aren’t as good as they could be for the Denver Nuggets.
We believe that the Nuggets have what it takes to keep momentum and preserve their four-game win streak. They can further their streak as well. However, that means making sure that no slip-ups ruin the game for the Nuggets because this is going to put them in a very tight spot.
All eyes will be no Nikola Jokic, the season leader for total points as well as assists. We will also be eyeing Paul Millsap, who is at 10.7 RPG (rebounds) against LeBron James, season leader of the Lakers in rebounds, who is at 8.3.
The Los Angeles Lakers are not showing any improvements. They are currently 0-3, losing two of those games at home. This is their third game on home soil and we believe they finally have a grip over their core tactics and long-term strategy. We also need to see more cohesion and team-play, as well as better coordination and in-game communication. The ball needs to be move quick and points need to get in quicker.
We are talking about a game where the Lakers can finally end their losing spree with their first win of the season against a respectable 4-0 Denver Nuggets team. This will also help them make a statement that they are back in full swing.
LeBron James is leading the season with a 27.3 PPG, 46.0% FG, and 77.8% FT. He leads not only in points but in rebounds and assists as well.
