The Nuggets have not been good on the road this season as they are 8-14 straight up on the season. They allow over 101 points a game on the road. They come off a 2-1 home stand with wins against the Clippers by 14 points and on Saturday night the team blows out the Utah Jazz 110-91. The Nuggets hosted the LA Lakers the day after Christmas and come away with a 126-114 win and covering as a -3 ½ point favorite. The Lakers were in a bad spot in a back to back after beating the New York Knicks on Christmas Day. The Lakers are a disappointing 15-17 straight up on their home court. If the playoffs were to start today the Lakers would be a lottery team and not make the field of eight from out west. LA trails Denver by 2 ½ games with 50 games remaining to be played until the regular season comes to a close in late April. For LA the problem has been on the defensive end of the court where they rank 25th in the league by allowing 100 points a game. Everyone seems to be concerned about the offense but why? They are the fifth ranked scoring offense in basketball. Pau Gasol is concerned about his role on the team. It should be clear that his role is that of a defensive force now.
