LA Lakers vs Denver Nuggets 31.10.2022
The Los Angeles Lakers have had their worst start to the season since 2016, going 0-4 for the first time in the Lebron James era. After failing to make even the Playin tournament last year, many pundits had predicted the Lakers would bounce back and at least make the playoffs this time. On the evidence we have seen thus far, they are a team in the doldrums. They have struggled to shoot the long ball. They are dead last in the league in 3-point percentage shooting and their winless start to the season has them sitting at rock bottom in the Western Conference standings.
Denver welcomed back into the fold their two stars Jamal Murray and Michael Porter Jnr who missed their entire playoffs last season due to injuries, They struggled to blend in on the opening day as they suffered an upset loss to a rebuilding Utah team. They have however bounced back with three wins in their subsequent 4 games, including a crucial win over defending Champions the Golden State Warriors as well as the Lakers in their last match
Lebron was sub-par in that game scoring just 19 points on a woeful 8/21 shooting and he acknowledged as much in the post-game presser. He also had 8 turnovers which is quite uncharacteristic of him. Expect him to be a bit more aggressive in this return match back at their Crypto Arena. Given the lack of shooting on the Lakers, he will be required to carry a bigger scoring load. We expect him to step up to the challenge and we are backing him to score at least 28 points here
Tip: Lebron – Over 27.5 Points
