Los Angeles Lakers
The Lakers come into this game having won seven of their last nine games. Both losses in that two-week stretch came to Orlando, which won at home and at Staples Center on Sunday afternoon.
Nikola Vucevic torched JaVale McGee and Tyson Chandler both times. He averaged over thirty-three points and fifteen rebounds in the two games, combined. LeBron James played forty minutes on Sunday and the Lakers won the fourth quarter by eleven points but couldn’t come all the way back and lost, 108–104.
Everybody off the bench struggled, with the exception of Lance Stephenson (thirteen points in fifteen minutes), who really doesn’t want to be a scorer as much as a playmaker off the bench.
Brandon Ingram’s scoring is down a smidge from last season, which was expected. What’s concerning, however, is that his efficiency has gone down, too, at least so far.
Same story with Kyle Kuzma, except his scoring has remained level.
Perhaps it’s just the Lakers playing a slightly different style this season or perhaps James’ ball dominance hasn’t helped these youngsters much at all.
The Nuggets went through some struggles after their 10–1 start; things can’t stay that good for that long. Since, though, they have written the ship with three good wins in a row coming into this game.
The Nuggets had to go to Oklahoma City to play the Thunder the very next night after defeating a hot Orlando team at home. To be fair, OKC was on the second night of a back-to-back, too, but Denver waltzed right in and took it to the Thunder, winning 105–98. The Nuggets won in Minnesota by a deuce before any of that happened.
They did it without Gary Harris, who rested a sore achilles. Torrey Craig stepped in to start and play thirty-six minutes, despite looking like a forgotten man for much of the last couple weeks, playing in dribs and drabs off the bench.
Trey Lyles had his second consecutive big game off the bench for Denver, which is running with all the big dogs in the West, at the moment.
This will be a final home game for Denver before it sets off on a five-game road trip, starting in Portland and then going down the East Coast, from Canada to Florida.
