Denver Nuggets vs Los Angeles Lakers prediction

Denver Nuggets failed to take advantage of their chance to sweep this series when they lost game 4 to the Lakers at the Crypto Arena at the weekend. They will look to regroup and close the series as we shift back to the high-altitude Denver for game 5. Nikola Jokic did his part with 33 points, 14 rebounds and 14 assists. But the rest of the team was not reading from the same memo with the inefficient Jamal scoring 22 points on 9/24 shooting and Aaron Gordon a complete no show after a terrific game 3 in which he tallied 29 points

Lakers will be feeling buoyed after getting showing some signs of life back in this series while on the brink of elimination. They have no choice but continue throwing everything they have at Denver. Incidentally, they have led the way for the large part of this series but have collapsed at the most critical moments under the weight of pressure from the champions. Anthony Davis and Lebron James continue leading the way for the Lakers and when they get key contributions from the others, like the 21 points from guard D’Angelo Russell in game 4, they can be a dangerous opponent.

It almost feels like Denver have been playing with their food for the most part. They keep falling into big holes and then they up the ante in the 2nd halves and get the job done. Elimination games are the hardest so we can expect a very tight opening half of this game as both teams lock in defensively. We are therefore backing the opening half to have no more than 112 total points as our Denver Nuggets vs LA Lakers prediction here
