What to Know

The Denver Nuggets will host the Los Angeles Lakers to start their respective NBA runs. Tip off is scheduled at 7:30 p.m. ET on October 24th at Ball Arena.

Keep your eye on personal fouls in this one, as these two were some of the most dominant teams in that area last year. The Lakers were ranked first overall in personal fouls last season, having been handed just 17.9 per game. The Nuggets did well in that department too, as they were ranked fourth with an average of 18.6 per game.

Looking back to last season, the Lakers finished on the right side of .500 (43-39), and they're hoping to kick off an even more successful campaign this year. Similarly, the Nuggets also assembled a winning record last year, finishing the season 53-29.

The Lakers will be fighting an uphill battle on Tuesday as the experts have pegged them as the 4.5-point underdog. They finished last season with a 40-42 record against the spread.

The Lakers couldn't quite finish off the Nuggets when the teams last played back in May and fell 113-111. Can the Lakers avenge their defeat or is history doomed to repeat itself? We'll find out soon enough.


Denver is a 4.5-point favorite against Los Angeles, according to the latest NBA odds.

The over/under is set at 227.5 points.
