Los Angeles Lakers vs Denver Nuggets – NBA – In the first match of the Western Conference Finals we will have the Los Angeles Lakers and the Denver Nuggets.
Los Angeles Lakers vs Denver Nuggets –The Lakers were one of the best teams in the regular season as well as in these playoffs and now they will face a Denver Nuggets team that has been sublime in this stage since in both the quarterfinals and semi-finals they managed to recover from a 3-1 disadvantage to win the knock outs.
After winning the Western Conference in the regular season, the Lakers are now dealing the cards in the Western playoffs.
The Los Angeles team have been caught off guard in the first match of each series but ended up winning both of them by four games to one, first against the Portland Trail Blazers and in the semi-finals against James Harden’s Houston Rockets.
The Lakers come from four wins in a row against the Rockets and in the last one they won by 119-96. Waiters is the big doubt for this game against the Nuggets.
The Denver Nuggets finished in the 3rd place of the Western Conference with 46 wins and 27 losses.
The Nuggets formation had two great comebacks in their series after being 3-1 down against Utah Jazz in the semi-finals and against one of the big title contenders, the LA Clippers, in which the Nuggets rose from the ashes and after another 3-1 disadvantage, the Denver team managed to succeed in the series by 4-3 winning the last game by a big margin of 104-89.
Barton and Cancar will be out for this first clash against the Lakers.
