Fixture – LA Lakers vs Denver Nuggets
Date & Time – 10th August, 9 PM ET (11th August, 6:30 AM IST)
Where – AdventHealth Arena (WWOS), Orlando, Florida
As players ease back into fitness in both the LA Lakers and the Denver Nuggets’ camps, this game will be a preview of a possible Conference Finals matchup. Led by dominant big men and flanked by equally scary perimeter players, both the LA Lakers and the Denver Nuggets are capable of scoring both in the paint and from 3-point land.
LA Lakers Preview
The LA Lakers seem to be stuck in a gear below their top notch. Consecutive losses to the Indiana Pacers, Houston Rockets and the OKC Thunder would be enough to bring a reality check to the top seeds in the West. The LA Lakers will be hoping to get back into shooting gear before long.
Their outing against the Pacers was a little better than their previous games, but they need more from their shooters to win big.
