What to Know

After a five-game homestand, the Los Angeles Lakers will be on the road. They will square off against the Denver Nuggets at 10 p.m. ET on Sunday at Ball Arena. Both teams come into the contest bolstered by wins in their previous games.

The Lakers were able to grind out a solid win over the Memphis Grizzlies this past Friday, winning 115-105. The victory came about thanks to a strong surge after the first quarter to overcome a 31-16 deficit. Los Angeles can attribute much of their success to power forward Anthony Davis, who had 35 points in addition to nine rebounds, and small forward LeBron James, who had 28 points and eight assists along with nine boards.

Meanwhile, things were close when Denver and the Oklahoma City Thunder clashed this past Friday, but Denver ultimately edged out the opposition 97-95. The win came about thanks to a strong surge after the half to overcome a 53-40 deficit. Denver’s center Nikola Jokic did his thing and almost posted a triple-double on 22 points, 13 rebounds, and nine assists.

Los Angeles is the favorite in this one, with an expected 3.5-point margin of victory. Those playing the odds have seen things go back and forth with the Lakers, who are 13-14 against the spread.

The wins brought Los Angeles up to 21-6 and the Nuggets to 14-11. A pair of stats to keep an eye on: Los Angeles enters the game with only 105.2 points allowed per game on average, good for second best in the league. But Denver ranks fourth in the league when it comes to points per game, with 115.2 on average. We’ll see which of these strengths — offense or defense — will win out.
