LA Lakers vs Denver Nuggets 23.05.2023

The Lakers’ fairytale run seems to be heading to an end in the Western Conference. After defying the odds to beat 2nd-seed Memphis and 6th-seed Miami, their matchup with the top-seed Denver Nuggets has proven to be a bridge too far for them to cross. They have been outclassed by the clinical execution of Denver particularly at the end of the games and find themselves facing elimination having lost all three games played thus far. They will look to at the very least avoid a 4-0 sweep by emptying their clips in this game 4. They will need massive games from their star players LeBron James and Anthony Davis who haven’t quite imposed their will in this series as they have done in the other two rounds.

Number 1 seed Denver’s quest for a first-ever championship with this dominant display in the Western Conference finals. They have shown terrific grit and fortitude to take the commanding 3-0 lead but have overall been the better team in all three games. Led by the terrific shooting of Jamal Murray and the terrific vision and playmaking of their MVP Nikola Jokic, Denver has diced and sliced this vaunted Lakers’ defence to pieces. They will look to underline their title credentials and put a huge statement if they can get the “sweep” here.

With their backs against the walls, we fancy the Lakers to come out firing. They will look to get Anthony Davis going early to fire him up offensively. We expect him to get a few early post touches and we feel he will have a big 1st quarter offensively as the Lakers try to get themselves back in the series

Tip: Davis 1st Quarter Over 7.5 Points
