Home Lakers Nation NBA Playoffs 2024 NBA Playoffs Betting Guide: Denver Nuggets vs. Los Angeles Lakers NBA Playoffs Game 2 Betting Guide: Denver Nuggets vs. Los Angeles Lakers Game 2: Four-minute read Send a Tweet America TODAY Sports’ Andrew Wevers Posted on April 22, 2024 Staff Writer Author As the Los Angeles Lakers prepare for Game 2 of their NBA playoff first-round series against the Denver Nuggets, the betting scene is thrilling. The Lakers are trying to bounce back from a difficult defeat in the first game of the series, as they could not keep up with the Nuggets’ impressive second-half play, despite having a great start. The Nuggets, who now lead the series 1-0, just came off a convincing victory thanks to an outstanding performance from Nikola Jokic.

Despite strong efforts from LeBron James and Anthony Davis, who combined for 59 points, 20 rebounds, and 11 assists in Game 1, the Lakers lost 114-103. But the Lakers struggled with effectiveness outside the arc and overall team depth, which was made worse by the absences of Jarred Vanderbilt and Cam Reddish. The Nuggets demonstrated their strength, especially in the second half of the game, to win, led by Nikola Jokic’s 32 points, 12 rebounds, and seven assists.
