Western Conference Finals: Game 2 Lakers vs Nuggets
The LA Lakers are serious contenders to win the championship. LeBron James is looking to add to his legacy, but after Game 1 of the Western Conference finals, things look bleak. The Denver Nuggets jumped out to a quick start and although they let the Lakers come back, they won the pivotal first game of the series. Game 2 Lakers vs Nuggets predictions and picks have to be evaluated differently.
Adjustments are everything
Our series predictions indicate that the Nuggets will win the series, but the adjustments are everything. The Lakers made the adjustments that they needed to make in the second half to make this series close. Game 2 will feature a desperate Lakers team that is looking to steal home court and head back to LA with a tied series.
The Nuggets will look to run and gun to take advantage of the high altitude. This worked in Game 1, but LeBron will not allow it to work in Game 2.
Game 2 Lakers vs Nuggets Predictions
The zig-zag theory will suggest that the Lakers are the play in Game 2. The line dipped about a point because everyone believes that the Nuggets will outrun the Lakers again. That is a big mistake. Anthony Davis can put up big numbers against this defense. The Lakers are 16-5 against the spread (ATS) after a loss and will be ready for Game 2. Bet on LeBron to get the job done.
