The Denver Nuggets will play their seventh elimination match of the postseason where they are 6-0 while the Lakers look to secure their berth to the NBA Finals.
Another tough loss by the Nuggets underscores the brilliant game Jamal Murray delivered along with some of the most impressive shots made throughout the entire 2020 postseason.
Will Barton remains out dealing with a knee injury but there are hopes he might be able to suit up before the end of the series.
Los Angeles Lakers
For as much as the focus is on how well the Nuggets perform in elimination matches, it should be noted when LeBron James teams lead 3-1 in a series he’s 14-0.
Rajon Rondo dished seven assists in the match surpassing Scottie Pippen into eighth on the list of all-time playoff assist leaders.
Anthony Davis led the way with 34 points while LeBron James was stellar with 26 points, eight assists, and nine rebounds. Dwight Howard was moved to the starting lineup registering a double-double of 12 points and 11 rebounds.
The trio of Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (13), Rondo (11), and Kyle Kuzma (10) were the other double-figure contributors.
The trio of Anthony Davis (ankle), LeBron James (thigh contusion), and Alex Caruso (wrist) are all battling injuries but expected to play while Dion Waiters (groin) has been upgraded to questionable for Saturday.

Free Denver Nuggets vs. Los Angeles Lakers NBA Prediction:
A series of calls seemingly helped the Lakers in Game 4 when the refs reviewed the play where Davis hurt his ankle. The review confirmed it wasn’t a flagrant or a foul but AD still shot free throws.
Shortly after refs didn’t allow continuation on a Murray foul and this was followed by two uncalled fouls on LeBron versus Murray which resulted in scores for the Lakers.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Nuggets plus 5
Those plays alone gave the edge to the Lakers and whether you buy that narrative or not the Nuggets will use it to inspire their efforts in Game 5.
Keeping in mind the Lakers want to finish the series as their overall roster age will become a factor the longer the series goes.
