Los Angeles Lakers preview

The Lakers have been the best team in the NBA till now. They have started off really hot and have cemented their position as one of the topmost contenders for the championship this season. The Lakers are 17-3 and have the best record in the NBA. They have especially looked terrifying on the defensive end and lead the league in blocks per game. All their big men have made it very tough for the opposition players to score in the paint.

Key player - Anthony Davis

Anthony Davis is a top 5 player in the NBA. He is a terrific player on both ends of the floor and has been one of the leading contenders for the MVP award this season. Davis is averaging 26.1 points, 9.3 rebounds, 2.8 blocks and 1.5 steals per game. He leads the team in all these categories. Davis was acquired by the Lakers in the offseason via a blockbuster trade and he has immediately transformed them into contenders.

Lakers predicted lineup:
  1. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope
  2. Danny Green
  3. LeBron James
  4. Anthony Davis
  5. Javale McGee
Denver Nuggets preview

The Denver Nuggets have also been one of the best teams in the NBA at the start of the season. They have played hard on both ends of the floor and have the second-best record in the Western Conference.
The Nuggets lost their last match in overtime on the last possession of the match. They will be looking to get back to winning ways against a very strong Lakers side.

Key player - Nikola Jokic

After struggling in the early parts of the season, Jokic is back to playing great basketball. He is playing great basketball and has been the glue that binds the Nuggets. Jokic is the best passing big man in the league and leads the Nuggets in assists per game. He is averaging 15.6 points, 10.4 rebounds and 6 assists per game. He was one of the best players last season and will be looking to contend for the MVP award this season.

Nuggets predicted lineup:
  1. Jamal Murray
  2. Gary Harris,
  3. Will Barton
  4. Paul Millsap
  5. Nikola Jokic
Lakers vs Nuggets Match prediction

The Lakers and the Nuggets are the top two teams in the Western Conference. They have both been playing fantastic basketball. The Lakers are led by two of the top players in the game in LeBron James and Anthony Davis. The Nuggets have a great young and running squad that will be a great challenge for any team in the league.

I predict the Lakers to get a close win in this match against the Denver Nuggets.
