Los Angeles Lakers (18-6, 12-2 AWAY) @ DenverNuggets (12-10, 5-5 HOME)
[8:00] PM MT
The Nuggets aren’t looking for a Valentine next Sunday, they’re looking for revenge. After getting worked by the Lakers to the tune of 114-93, Denver wants another crack at the champs on national television. If they want to avoid embarrassment, they’ll need Joker in MVP form while SOMEONE, ANYONE, provides some help for Big Honey. Although Joker nearly had another triple double, he only scored 13 points. Murray finished with 20 but his inconsistencies scoring the ball are becoming quite alarming. An injured elbow might be getting the best of him as he’s listed as day to day but if he’s on the floor, he should be expected to perform. Another guy they’ll need a big boost from is Michael Porter Jr. In ANOTHER loss to the Kings, MPJ went 3/11 from the floor and 1/7 from the 3 pt line. When going up against the leagues best defense on Sunday, they will need their offensive weapons firing on all cylinders.
