November 27, 2018 – Denver Nuggets vs L.A. Lakers
The Denver Nuggets will only host the Lakers once this season and this is that game. With a squad now led by LeBron James this team should show vast improvements over last year. This is a team that the Denver Nuggets could easily face in the playoffs if both teams make it there this year.
The Lakers should be a fun game to watch for the drama factor as well. I can’t tell you why but I love the drama of a good rivalry and Jamal Murray seems to have created that with Lonzo Ball by simply dribbling around him at the end of a game. The drama spurred from something pretty innocuous seems straight from the pages from professional wrestling rather than basketball. LaVar Ball should be proud. I love it.
This will be a good game. I expect the Lakers to struggle to find an identity, but LeBron James drives games and teams on his own so they should be good no matter what. I’d love to be in attendance for their one visit to the Pepsi Center this year just to say I saw LeBron play for the L.A Lakers. Denver Nuggets win this one of course.
