KEY GAME INFORMATION
LA LAKERS: LAST SEASON: 37-45, finished 10th in Western Conference.
COACH: Frank Vogel (first season with Lakers; ninth season overall, 304-291).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Rajon Rondo (9.2 ppg), G Danny Green (10.3 with Toronto), F LeBron James (27.4), F Anthony Davis (25.9 with New Orleans), C JaVale McGee (12.0).
KEY LOSSES: F Brandon Ingram, G Lonzo Ball, G Josh Hart, G Lance Stephenson.
KEY ADDITIONS: Davis, Green, C Dwight Howard, G Avery Bradley, F Jared Dudley, G Quinn Cook.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: The evolving chemistry between James and Davis will be at the forefront, but the Lakers' success in creating an immediate title contender could hinge on the supporting cast. Green must keep the outside shooting proficiency he demonstrated last season for Toronto, while Kyle Kuzma must find a role on a reconfigured roster. The Lakers' biggest early-season subplot of all might be around Howard, whose return to LA after six seasons away could be greeted by boos or cheers.
OUTLOOK: An aspiring super team takes shape around James and Davis, who joined forces to do a whole lot more than end the Lakers' franchise-record playoff drought at six years. LA expects to be a title contender with two of the NBA's best players anchoring a lineup featuring perimeter shooting from Green and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, fast-break proficiency from Alex Caruso and Kuzma, and sturdy defense from Bradley, Rondo and McGee. Vogel's ability to fold this talent into a cohesive unit over the next few months will determine whether the Lakers can do something special in the spring.

Because of this important information, no power rating or computer score edges are posted for this game.

DENVER: LAST SEASON: 54-28, lost 4-3 to Portland in Western Conference semifinals.
COACH: Michael Malone (fifth season with Nuggets, 173-155; seventh season overall, 212-222).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Jamal Murray (18.2 ppg), G Gary Harris (12.9), F Paul Millsap (12.6), C Nikola Jokic (20.1), G Will Barton (11.5).
KEY LOSSES: G Isaiah Thomas, F Trey Lyles, C Thomas Welsh.
KEY ADDITIONS: F Jerami Grant, C Bol Bol, F Michael Porter Jr.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Porter was the 14th overall pick in 2018 and missed all of last season as he recovered from back surgery. He skipped the Summer League in Las Vegas due to a balky knee. Now, he's healthy and ready to contribute. A healthy Porter gives the Nuggets another dimension on the perimeter, and another piece to add to the core of Murray, Harris, Jokic and Millsap.
OUTLOOK: The Nuggets have improved every season since Malone took over, going from 33 wins his first season to 40, 46 and 54 last season when they earned the No. 2 seed in the West. They didn't make any splashy moves in the offseason although they did bring back Millsap, picking up his $30 million option and agreed on a $170 million extension for Murray. Behind MVP-candidate Jokic, the Nuggets are a legit title contender.
PREVIEW
Lakers, Nuggets gear up for battle of West's best
 

A little bit of the luster is gone from Tuesday's game, but the importance and excitement is still there when the two best teams in the Western Conference face each other in an early-season matchup.

It's not the Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors going at it but the Los Angeles Lakers and the Nuggets battling in Denver in what could hold plenty of meaning in April. The Lakers are 2 1/2 games ahead of the Nuggets in the race for the best record in the West, but have played three more games.

Before the weekend it looked like the teams would meet with a full head of steam. Los Angeles had won 10 in a row before dropping a home game to the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday. Denver was rolling, too, having won six straight and 10 of 11 before blowing a 14-point fourth-quarter lead in Sacramento on Saturday, eventually losing in overtime.

The Lakers say they have already turned the page and are focused on the Nuggets.

"Each game is a new challenge," shooting guard Danny Green told reporters. "Denver is even tougher team. Can't take nothing away from Dallas. They are really good. But Denver is new challenge, a different challenge.

"They have been playing well in the West the last couple of years. They have many different threats, inside and out, so it's going to be a fun one and we look forward to scouting, looking at the film and figuring out what we need to do to obviously improve on ourselves, but also guard them and make them play to towards their weaknesses."

The Nuggets have won this season largely on the play of their defense, which is ranked No. 1 in the NBA (101.8 points allowed per game). But they also can get scoring from different areas. Five players are averaging double figures in scoring, led by guard Jamal Murray at 18.5 per game.

But the most dangerous player is center Nikola Jokic. He's a triple-double threat every night and has proven capable on the defensive end.

If there is one criticism of the Serbian big man is his he doesn't shoot enough. He averaged more than 17 shots a game for seven games before failing to reach 10 in two straight. He struggled Saturday, going 3 of 11 from the field and missed a critical free throw in the final minute of regulation that would have given Denver a three-point lead.

The Nuggets still finished November at 10-2 and put themselves in position to challenge for the top spot in the West. They also understand that they are getting everyone's best shot and their effort has to be there every night.

"Our guys understand that you can't think that we're just going to show up, look at a team's record and think, 'Well, on paper we're better than this team.' We have to go out and prove it every single night," Nuggets coach Michael Malone said. "The challenge is not to be satisfied and not get complacent and think we've arrived. Because we still have so much basketball to be played."

At the same time the players realize Tuesday's game is one of 82.

"It's another game, just got to come out ready to play," guard Gary Harris said. "We're going to guard our man, match up and attack them like we do every other opponent."
