Lakers vs Nuggets Picks & Prediction

The Lakers jumped out to a 12-point lead in Saturday's Game 1 against the Nuggets before falling in a 114-103 setback.

Denver has now won nine consecutive meetings with Los Angeles since January 2023, including covering six straight times.

The Lakers received 59 points from LeBron James and Anthony Davis, but the rest of the team put up 44 points. Past James making 3-of-5 three-point shots, his teammates combined to shoot 5-of-24 from long distance.

Denver's bench didn't contribute much in Game 1, but all five starters scored in double-figures as Nikola Jokic led the way with 32 points.

The Nuggets won in spite of attempting only six free throws, while limiting the Lakers to 43 second-half points.

The Lakers blew a golden opportunity in Game 1 to land the first punch on the Nuggets. Home teams have dominated so far and it feels like the points don't matter in this case.

Pick: Nuggets -7.5 (-110)
