DEN vs LAL Dream11: Los Angeles Lakers will be looking to avoid their first back-to-back defeats of the season when they hit the road for a mouthwatering clash against fellow Western Conference against Denver Nuggets at Pepsi Center, tomorrow, on Wednesday morning.
Denver Nuggets: Nuggets were the favourite to extend their six-game winning run before facing the inconsistent Sacramento Kings in the last game. But the Kings were too hot to handle on the day, brought their A-Game in clutch situations, and delivered. Nikola Jokic had an off day, Paul Millsap failed to turn up, While Jamal Murray was not at his usual best as well.
But the Nuggets still boast a very good return on the season with 13 wins from 17 games. They still hold a two-game advantage over3rd-placed Los Angeles Clippers.
Los Angeles Lakers: The Showtime also had a shocker in the last game, as they also went against the expectations and dropped the game against Luka Doncic’s Dallas Mavericks. Frank Vogel’s men still maintain quite the advantage over other teams at the top of the pile in the Western Conference.
This fixture has been contested 175 times in the past with the Los Angeles Lakers enjoying a goo hold over Denver Nuggets in the head-to-head fixtures.
