LAL vs DEN Dream11 Match Prediction – Fantasy NBA | Los Angeles Lakers vs Denver Nuggets | December 22, 2019

LAL vs DEN Dream11 Match Prediction

MIL vs LAL Dream11: For the first time this season, Los Angeles Lakers go into a game with two successive defeats. But can they avoid the ignominy of three straight drops against the Denver Nuggets who are red-hot at the moment, as they come into the away tilt against the Lakers with the joint-best run in the league?


Los Angeles Lakers:

  • As mentioned above, the Lakers will try to avoid three successive defeats here.
  • Indiana Pacers took full advantage the shorthanded Lakers, who missed Anthony Davis through injury, as they beat the Western Conference leaders 105-102 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
  • Lakers stayed in the East for a huge clash against Milwaukee Bucks, but the reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo was too hot to handle and was the main antagonist in Lakers' 111-104 win at Fiserv Forum.
  • Now the Lakers are hurt and will surely be motivated enough to end the skid here, at home, in front of home fans.

Denver Nuggets:

  • Nuggets are hot at the moment. All the talks of Nuggets struggling to recapture the last season's form are up in the air now.
  • Nuggets have risen to 3rd on the points table as a result.
  • But Nuggets have struggled away from home and have 6-5 return from the away games.
