Denver Nuggets Form

Denver head to Los Angeles on a good run of form, having now won seven of their last 10 games.

The Nuggets struggled for consistency throughout the first half of January, but got back on track in the second half of the month.

They started this good run with a 102-100 win in Boston, which was followed by a 113-104 victory in Washington and a 114-109 success at Indiana.

Denver then rebounded from a 122-84 blowout loss in New York by returning home to beat Philadelphia 111-105 and Milwaukee 113-107.

The Nuggets failed to make it three-in-a-row as they lost 105-100, but they hit back quickly with a couple of home wins against Portland, beating the Trail Blazers 120-108 and 112-103.

Los Angeles Lakers Form

Los Angeles go into this meeting with the defending champions on a three-game win streak.

The Lakers endured a poor run of form after winning the NBA In-Season Tournament, but they have steadied the ship in recent weeks.

They beat Portland 134-110, and then bounced back from a 127-116 defeat to the LA Clippers with a 141-132 win over Chicago and a 145-144 double overtime victory against Golden State.

Los Angeles failed to win their next two, losing 135-119 in Houston and 138-122 in Atlanta, but their response has been strong.

The Lakers have followed up a 114-105 win in Boston with a 113-105 victory in New York and a 124-118 win at Charlotte.

Verdict

Denver have found some momentum and are backed to keep it going against the Lakers, especially if LeBron and Davis are missing for the hosts.
