The Lakers will return to the court after taking down the Atlanta Hawks 107-99 on the road Monday night, as they improved to 16-6 on the season, just 0.5 games behind the first place Utah Jazz for first in the Western Conference. Anthony Davis led the Lakers with 25 points, and they took advantage of a 16-0 run in the third and fourth quarters and held off Atlanta. Los Angeles followed a two-game losing streak with consecutive wins heading into Thursday night.
Denver will come into this matchup with a 12-8 record and hasn’t played since Jan. 31 after this week’s game against the Detroit Pistons was postponed. The Nuggets have won six of their last seven games and picked up a big win over the Utah Jazz their last time out with a 128-117 home victory. In that game, Nikola Jokic went off for 47 points on 17 of 26 shooting, making all four 3-pointers he attempted with 12 rebounds.
