The 0-3 Lakers are in Denver to take on the 2-2 Nuggets tonight. This game will be high tempo and high scoring in the high altitude of Colorado.
These teams historically score a lot when they play each other – especially in Denver. They didn’t score under 229 in any of their head-to-head matchups last year and they won’t tonight either.
LeBron will get his 31 road points and with No Russell Westbrook for the Lakers tonight (hamstring soreness and trade possibility) Patrick Beverly will get his points, and then some. Look for Nikola Jokic and Michael Porter to go off in a great atmosphere for the Nuggets playing their 2nd home game of the season.
The Nuggets should win by 6, but the 229 total is an even better bet.
