The Lakers vs. Nuggets: A Tense Rematch to Kick off the NBA Regular Season

By Mathieu S. | NBA Editor

After some changes to their roster, the Lakers begin their regular season this week against Nikola Jokic’s Nuggets. A little revenge from the last playoffs, especially since tensions are present behind the scenes. But the recent choice of Darvin Ham is not unanimous.

We are finally in the final stretch regarding the resumption of the NBA. The regular season will begin this week with a promising meeting between the Nuggets and the Lakers, rematch of the Western Conference final last May. The tension is also present, since the players and coaches have not stopped sending each other a few barbs from a distance in recent months. We might as well tell you that this is the kind of match that we don’t want to miss.

The Lakers promised a big defeat against the Nuggets?

Impossible to judge this early in the season however, especially since the players and rotations are likely to change in the future. We think for example of the Angelinos, like Darvin Ham’s decision to start Taurean Prince in his starting 5, whileAnthony Davis will play as a pivot. A little surprise, so much so that the supporters are worried for this opening match.

What do you think of our starting 5 for opening night?

Will Davis be able to best contain Jokic after the failure of the last playoffs? Let’s also not forget the formidable talent of Jamal Murray, widely adored on the Nuggets side. D’Angelo Russell and Austin Reaves will have work to do, all in an atmosphere that promises to be particularly tense. In any case, it promises to be a spectacle.

The Lakers’ major 5 is interesting, but it’s the Nuggets opposite, who largely deserved their title last June. The meeting could turn into a beating, especially if Nikola Jokic is not slowed down. Work ahead for Anthony Davis.
