Nuggets vs. Lakers Game Preview & TV Info: Kentavious Caldwell-Pope Out

The Los Angeles Lakers are facing the Denver Nuggets on Monday to conclude the season series and, most importantly, to find out whether their revitalized performance a couple of days prior was indeed a sign of improvement.

The Lakers finally showed glimpses of their pre-hiatus form over the weekend despite falling 116-111 to the Indiana Pacers. They made 13 threes, the most since the Orlando bubble experiment started, on a much better looking 33% from beyond the arc. Quinn Cook sank five 3-pointers himself and finished with 21 points, emerging as a perimeter threat in the absence of Danny Green while LeBron James exploded for 31 points, eight rebounds and seven assists.
