The Denver Nuggets vs LA Lakers playoff series was dubbed as the revenge series by the Lakers fans, but it feels like the Nuggets are in the mood to replicate another sweep instead of letting them get revenge. After winning game 2 of the series, they extended their winning run against the Lakers to 10 games, and to add more misery to their hopes of a win, LeBron James is on the injury list for this game.

LeBron James was on the injury list for the previous two games as well because of left ankle peroneal tendinopathy but he ended up playing almost 40 minutes per game.

Can the Lakers keep the series alive at home?

Losing game 3 won’t lose the Lakers the series but it will make it nearly impossible to get back into it. The Lakers will need a massive performance from everyone on the court and not just LeBron James and Anthony Davis. The likes of Austin Reaves, D’Angelo Russell, and Rui Hachimura have been underperforming and that’s creating extra pressure on Davis and James.
