The Nuggets themselves have been struggling lately as well, having lost 12 of their last 14. Despite their recent problems, Denver still poses a challenge for the Lakers. Denver also likes to play a fast-paced style of basketball and averages 99.8 possessions a game. The Lakers will be playing the second game of a back-to-back at the Pepsi Center. The Nuggets are going to be looking to run in Friday’s game, and the Lakers are going to have to be ready to match up if they want to get over Thursday night’s devastating loss.

There are 20 games left in the season for the Lakers, and the majority of the roster are playing for their next contracts. The remaining games, starting with tonight, will serve as barometer of how much heart the Lakers have.
