The Denver Nuggets charged back from a 13-point deficit to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 98-94 on Wednesday night on NBA Betting Odds.
The struggling Lakers coming down the stretch would like to get A. Bynum back on the court before playoffs and as they try again to wrap up the top spot in the Western Conference he more than likely will not
be available Thursday night against the Nuggets.
The Lakers need to win their last five games on the NBA Odds to have consecutive 60-win seasons for the first time since 1984-85 season.
In the meantime the Nuggets have stayed competitive for the No. 2 spot in the West by winning three straight after a 1-5 slide. The Nuggets have held their last three opponents to 92.0 points while in the previous six games they allowed 105.3 points.
Tonight’s game against the Nuggets in Denver represents something a little bit more than just another game for the Lakers. Why, because the Lakers have lost three of their past four overall and two of three this season against the Nuggets. The Lakers need a victory tonight in the worst way.
