The Lakers face off against the Nuggets after the Nuggets stunned the Clippers in the Western Semi-Finals. I expect Anthony Davis to take the lead in guarding Jokic, while most likely doubling Jamal Murray and limiting his 3 point chances and force him inside. Jokic will give the Lakers some issues as an inside presence but with Rondo back, the Lakers shouldn't have problems finding ways to get good looks. The Nuggets are a great team and they beat the odds against the Clippers, but I think the Lakers are a different animal. The Lakers won't blow a 16 lead to the Nuggets twice, and I like them to get a sizeble victory in game 1 after some valuebale rest.
