Interesting Stats

  • The Lakers are on their first back-to-back of the season.
  • The Lakers currently have the second-fastest pace on offense in the NBA. 
  • The Nuggets are off to a 4-0 start -- they haven't been 5-0 to start a season since 2009-10. 
  • The Nuggets and Boston Celtics are the only two teams holding opponents to an average of less than 100 points per game this season.


Best Prop Bets

  • Nikola Jokic: Over 21.5 Points (-106) – This feels like free money, which would make any bettor somewhat nervous. Jokic has scored at least 21 points in three of the Nuggets' four games and the Lakers' up-tempo style of play will give him all the possessions he needs to hit the mark.
  • LeBron James: Over 40.5 Points and Assists (-112) – This is the type of game LeBron loves -- something to prove while playing in primetime. A lot of people are down on the Lakers after a 1-3 start, but a national TV game against an undefeated Nuggets team should be more than enough motivation for him to go bananas tonight.
