What to Know

The Lakers will be in front of their home fans on Saturday, but a look at the spread shows they might need that home-court advantage. They will fight it out against the Denver Nuggets in a Western Conference playoff contest at 8:30 p.m. ET at Arena. The Lakers are staggering into the matchup hobbled by three consecutive losses, while the Nuggets will skip in buoyed by four consecutive wins.

While the experts predicted the Lakers would be headed into the match after a victory, that’s not how things played out against the Nuggets on Thursday. The Lakers took a 112-105 hit to the loss column at the hands of the Nuggets. The loss hurts even more since Los Angeles was up 37-25 with 10:54 left in the second.

The match pitted two of the league’s most dominant centers against one another in Nikola Jokic and Anthony Davis. Jokic had a solid game and almost dropped a triple-double on 24 points, 15 rebounds, and nine assists. Meanwhile, Davis did his best for the losing side, dropping a double-double on 33 points and 15 rebounds.
