The Nuggets continue to fight for the top spot in the West. They had three consecutive defeats and that was a bit scary because it made people think that maybe they were in crisis, but they shook off the bad vibes and have already won two important games.

Nikola Jokić decided they couldn’t lose anymore and said “Get out, I’ll do it” and has had two spectacular games. In the win against Portland by 121-120, he recorded 33 points, 10 rebounds, and 9 assists. Against Utah, he scored 31 points, pulled down 12 boards, and dished out 14 assists. That’s a spectacular triple-double of the Serbian, who is at a great level.

The Denver Nuggets are 1.5 games behind the leaders (the Grizzlies and the Pelicans), so they need to keep adding victories to their record. Visiting, they are pretty decent with a 9-7 record. Basically, they are not afraid to disrespect anyone at home.

Betting on the Los Angeles Lakers

The Lakers were threatening a resurgence, but after all and LeBron, they continue to be very inconsistent. From the last 5 games, they have only one win and cannot get out of the bottom of the West.

LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and Russell Westbrook are still the most important guys on the team, but that’s a problem, because there’s no one else to raise their hand. The only one in the secondary that works is Westbrook, and that’s quite concerning.

What’s more, they have a hard time winning at home. The Lakers have not been able to put together a balanced team, and having good players is not enough. The playoffs are getting farther and farther away from the legendary team that is now looking a little pitiful.

Based on the level shown, we believe that the Nuggets will continue with their inertia. The Lakers are struggling mightily, and it’s too much of a workload for LeBron and company, who don’t have good complements to hold advantages.

Besides, Denver is playing much better, and even though Nikola Jokić is at a very good level, Jamal Murray, Aaron Gordon, and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope are very supportive of the Serbian. This is much more of a team than the Lakers who can’t find a unit.
