Los Angeles Lakers's Latest Performance :
The Lakers are coming off another loss against the Magic as they had no answer for Vucevic he had another 30 points performance. Despite McGee putting up a season-high 7 blocks, he will have to do a better job at containing opposing big men. James finished the game with 24 points shooting 8-for-14 from the floor. That loss against the Magic ended the Lakers three-game winning streak had LeBron been more aggressive on the floor the Lakers might have won the game. The Lakers have now dropped both their games to the Magic this season, and they’re currently sitting on the No. 7 seed out West. Ingram chipped in with 17 points as he recovered from a slow start to score 12 of his 17 in the 4th quarter. Kyle Kuzma went 7-of-15 from the field and 5-of-7 from the stripe on his way to 21 points. The Lakers made it a priority to get him involved early, and he also did a really nice job defensively against Evan Fournier on the other end of the floor. He’ll look to keep it going on Tuesday in Denver.
Denver Nuggets's Latest Performance :
The Nuggets are coming off an impressive win over the Thunder as they are now on a three-game winning streak. It will be their second meeting against the Lakers this season the Lakers were able to win at home in the first meeting. Leading the way for the Nuggets was Jamal Murray as he scored 22 points adding eight rebounds, eight assists, and two 3-pointers. He is also starting to hoist his shots again with 18.7 attempts from the field over his last three, as well. His minutes are also up to 36 after being sent to the bench. Jokic will look to bounce back from a 6-20 shooting night against the Thunder as the Nuggets will need him to be aggressive on the offensive end because the Lakers struggle to defend big men who can score down in the post.

Lakers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.
Against The Spread Selection: Los Angeles Lakers
My reason for the pick :
The Lakers should be able to bounce back from their loss against the Magic to take down the Nuggets at home. LeBron won’t allow his team to lose two straight after they have been playing really well. The Lakers will learn from their mistakes against the Magic and do their best to contain Jokic from having a good game. For the Nuggets, without Jokic being effective on the offensive end makes it hard to come up on top against the Lakers having one scorer in Murray won’t get the job done.
