One game that I will be following for sure tonight is Lakers – Denver.
LA Lakers – Denver Nuggets
Lakers still searching for the first win, while Nuggets got theirs on the first night, against Houston in Houston (by 20 points) and still searching for their second win ever since.
I like Lakers tonight for several important reasons.
First of all, I really feel that Lakers should be solid favorites tonight. Not 50 – 50 and surely not dogs.
My line here is -3.5 points.
I assume that Lakers as good as the Nuggets and even if they not as good, no way this warrants such a huge point swing we see in the line.
Second reason is that Lakers have good players and good combo of experience and potential. Randell is a beast so far. Lu Will won “Sixth player of the year” prize last year. Kobe sucks, but he knows it. He was given a day off today, because he was so mad at himself that he couldn’t practice. Obviously he has great reasons to be mad and obviously being mad doesn’t solve your problem, but Kobe is one of the smartest players in the league. Say what you want about him, but he has tremendous basketball IQ and I’m sure that he can find a way to help his team.
Clarkson looks decent so far and while Russell still seems a bit lost, he is a great potential that can explode in any minute.
All in all, Lakers are a decent team. Not a great team, not a playoff team, but a team that is much better than last year.
You know who else a decent team, but not great and not a playoff team? Denver Nuggets.
Denver has problems in many areas, but defense has to be the main one. Malone is a decent defensive coach, but you can’t turn your players in to something they not.
Lakers get another chance at home to do something, before heading to a very hard journey on the road.
