List of Refs for Nuggets vs Lakers Game 4 Tonight (Lakers Look to Keep Season Alive at Home)
By Larry Rupp
Monday's NBA Playoffs slate features Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals between the Denver Nuggets and Los Angeles Lakers. In such a crucial contest, fans from both sides are hoping for a fairly officiated game tonight.
Here's everything you need to know about the refs for Game 4 of Nuggets-Lakers.
Nuggets vs Lakers Game 4 Referees
The three officials assigned to work Monday's matchup between the Nuggets and Lakers are Marc Davis (#8, crew chief), Josh Tiven (#58, referee), and Tre Maddox (#23, umpire). Mitchell Ervin (#27) will be the emergency alternate in case a last-minute replacement is needed.
James Williams, meanwhile, will be in the Secaucus-based Replay Center for tonight's playoff game.
Looking at Davis' postseason track record, he doesn't tend to favor one team or the other. The home team is 5-6 in his 11 playoff games as a crew chief and his foul calls are close to 50/50. The average point total for those games is 226.1, which is only slightly higher than the projected total of 224.5 points for tonight's game on FanDuel Sportsbook's NBA odds.
Here's a breakdown of the betting stats from games Davis has officiated this season:
Home Team Against the Spread
Average Home Team Win Margin
Average Total Score
Tiven and Maddox bring some postseason experience to the table as well with each man having reffed at least six games in the 2022-23 NBA playoffs. The home team has emerged victorious in 11 of their 14 combined contests, while Tiven's eight games alone have seen an average of 211.4 points.
Accordingly, we could see a low-scoring win by the Lakers tonight based on the NBA officiating crew.
