Last time out the Lakers had a much stronger team that thrashed the Denver Nuggets in 2020. However, this time the Nuggets are no longer the challengers, but rather the better team. LeBron will once again lead the Lakers in hopes to set a date for the NBA finals. The Lakers-Nuggets game promises to be enthralling. One team dominated the league the entire season and a team that spend the entire season outside the play-in spots.
