Lonzo Ball Is Mad About Getting Punked By Jamal Murray Again

As a result of that schedule, they will actually have traveled less than the Lakers coming into this game as they have been in Los Angeles for a few days already. The game will air on Altitude Sports & Entertainment at 9 p.m. ET on Friday, March 9, 2018. The Cavaliers defeated the Lakers 121-112. It brought back memories of the Lakers 115-100 loss in Denver on Dec.2, when the Nuggets held the Lakers scoreless over the final four minutes.

ODDSMAKERS LIKE: Denver. Devin Harris' 12 points were his most with Denver since being acquired from Dallas on February 10. Meanwhile, Los Angeles ranks 15th in the league at corralling defensive rebounds with a defensive rebounding percentage of 77.4 percent.

In the first matchup this season, the Lakers were competitive. Denver has lost three home games in a row and two straight overall after falling in Dallas on Tuesday and letting the Cavaliers get revenge on national TV on Wednesday night.

"I don't know, I don't really worry about Jamal Murray", Ball said when asked what Murray did at the end of this game on Friday night. James shot 11 for 20 in the game, hitting 55.0% of his attempts from the field (0/2 from the line, 3/7 from three-point range). Friday, his talking was a sore point with the Lakers. The Lakers shot 48.9 percent from the field, while the Nuggets made 50.6 percent of their shots - including 16 of 31 3-pointers. Their weakest areas are offensive rebounds per game (#27), blocks per game (#27) and steals per game (#24).

Derrick Rose To His Critics: 'I Don't Need Your F***ing Validation'
The 2017-18 National Basketball Association campaign has proven to be full of twists and turns for the former MVP Derrick Rose . "The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced the team has signed guard Derrick Rose ", the Timberwolves said in a statement.

During this span, he is averaging a whopping 3.5 3-pointers per game - fifth-highest in the National Basketball Association since the break. The Nuggets rank 25th in assists allowed per game (24.5). Los Angeles ranks 26th in points off turnovers allowed per game (18.5).

The Nuggets (35-30) are ninth in the West and desperate for a win.

The Lakers have outscored opponents by an average of 7.4 points in their last five games. He's averaged 17.9 PTS, 9.4 REB, 1.6 AST, 0.7 STL, 0.4 BLK and 1.5 TO on the season.

Primarily used as a 3-point shooter for most of the season, Lopez has been fed the ball down low, given that he has had favorable matchups over the past two games.
