Two teams with contrasting records in the NBA Regular season of 2018 will be going up against each other as LA Lakers face Denver Nuggets.
Denver Nuggets are 4-0 this season and have already notched up a win over the defending champions Golden State Warriors. They are playing like a team who is gunning to get a championship title. If this team doesn’t at least make the playoffs it would be a shame. Coach Michael Malone will be happy with his team and especially his centre player in Nikola Jokic. They are on the rise and a tough prospect for anyone to go up against.
On the other hand, LA Lakers have lost all of their first three games. But, the record doesn’t speak of the way they are playing basketball. All of the losses are extremely close, and if the luck favoured the side, they would definitely would’ve had a 3-0 record. LeBron James hasn’t had a start to his NBA season in this fashion since his rookie year and would be looking to make his presence known one more time and remind why he is the best player in the world.

DEN vs LAL Dream11 players to watch out for:
Denver Nuggets –
Nikola Jokic has become an early contender for the tag of MVP this year. The man has been in top form and is producing performances of a lifetime in the four games he has played.
Gary Harris has become one of the most underrated young players in the league. An average of 20+ points in the last three games, Harris’s stock is on the up.
LA Lakers –
LeBron James was slightly responsible for the loss the team faced against San Antonio Spurs. He did have a good points night, but the misses he had from the free-throw line as well as from the three-pointers were unbelievable. He will be looking to make amends.
Kyle Kuzma finally got a start due to suspensions his teammates have. He dispatched 37 points and has always shown prowess as a basketball player that is way beyond his years.
