The LA Lakers will take on the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday night in the NBA having won a confidence-building clash with the New York Knicks on Christmas Day. The game will tip off from 9 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream via the link below.
The Lakers are enjoying themselves at the moment and come into this game on the back of five straight wins. That recent run is their best of the season, and moves them back up to .500.
Tonight the Lakers will take on the 15-14 Nuggets which is a strong unit but lacking in some of the star quality that the Lakers have in their squad.
Pau Gasol is continuing to make his comeback having featured in the Lakers' last three wins, and Steve Nash is also back in the picture for Los Angeles.
The Lakers must look to move on from here and continuing building as the season progresses to put themselves in the a good position as the season builds towards the run up to the playoffs.
Some had been saying that this was potentially the best Lakers team on paper for years, before the season got started. However, a lackluster start had put those praises on ice, and many were questioning the passion of the players as the Lakers lost a string of opening games. However, they have shown great character at turning things around and now new coach Mike D'Antoni is buoyant at the mood in the camp.
D'Antoni has said, "Sometimes when you start winning you expect to win. You do the right thing. ... I just think we're getting a good shot every time we're down. You do that and good things are going to happen," according to ESPN.
