Los Angeles Lakers vs. Denver Nuggets

The Lakers starters are Jabari Brown, Jordan Clarkson, Tarik Black, Wesley Johnson, and Ryan Kelly. Jeremy Lin is going to be out of the game. Jordan Clarkson just got the ball under the basket to Ryan Kelly, getting an easy dunk. There wasn't anything spectacular about that dunk other than getting the basket. Randy Foye just made a 23 foot three point jumper. Jordan Clarkson just got the ball to Ed Davis, Davis getting an and1, making his shot. I just witnessed some ugly ball movement between Ryan Kelly and Wesley Johnson. The Nuggets are in the lead, as they're spending quite a bit of time at the free throw line. Randy Foye just hit a nothing but net 27 foot jumper. The Nuggets just shot their 11th free throw shot, and we're halfway through the first quarter. Wesley Johnson just banked in an 18 foot two pointer. I would love to see Jabari Brown turning it up and playing better. It's not that I'm celebrating Jeremy Lin sitting out this game... it's just that I like seeing Jabari Brown starting. Robert Sacre just made a 19 foot jumper. Ed Davis just threw in a hook shot with his left hand. Dwight Buycks is showing some impressive athleticism at the end of this first quarter. The first quarter ended at 33-35 Nuggets. 

I just saw the ugliest layup ever! Jusuf Nurkic needs some practice time. J. J. Hickson just made a driving layup. Dwight Buycks just made a driving layup. Jordan Clarkson just stole the ball from Will Barton, taking it to the hole with a driving layup. The Lakers bench is playing pretty well tonight. They're 8 out of 12 from the field. Ty Lawson just made a nice jump shot. Jordan Clarkson just made an 18 foot jumper. Gary Harris just made a sweet looking 7 foot jumper. The Lakers defense is much better in this second quarter. The game is tied at 52 with 1:36 left in the half. We're heading into halftime with a score of 54-58 Nuggets. 

Jordan Clarkson has six out of the nine assists for the Lakers tonight so far. Wesley Johnson just got his fifth foul. The Lakers aren't playing so well in this third quarter. It's becoming a very ugly game at this point. The Nuggets have a 20 point lead. In this quarter, the Lakers are shooting 39% and the Nuggets are shooting 80%. Finally, one of Jabari Brown's shots went in, without getting blocked this time. We're heading to the fourth quarter. 71-93 Nuggets

Jabari Brown just got a jumper, giving Dwight Buycks the assist. Kenneth Faried is having a ridiculous game tonight. This might be one of his best games of the season. His stats tonight are sick! He already has 29 points, 11 rebounds, 2 steals, and 2 blocked shots. Danilo Gallinari just made a three point jumper. He has all 7 of the three pointers for the Nuggets. Dwight Buycks is having a pretty good game tonight as well. Buycks has a career high 15 points, 4 rebounds, and 3 assists in 27 minutes. Although, he does have three turnovers so far. Will Barton just made a sick driving dunk! Dwight Buycks just made a bad pass, giving Will Barton the opportunity to steal the ball. J. J. Hickson just made a driving dunk. Jordan Clarkson just made a 16 foot jumper. Will Barton just made a bad pass and now Jordan Clarkson stole the ball. Jordan Clarkson gets the ball to Ed Davis for an easy layup. I have to say, Ed Davis also played really well tonight. When Davis wants to and has the opportunity to play more minutes, he can really turn on the fire. The Denver Nuggets take the win with a final score of 119-101. Jordan Clarkson had 21 points, 3 rebounds, and 9 assists. Dwight Buycks had 15 points, 5 rebounds, and 3 assists. Ed Davis had 15 points and 12 rebounds. Jabari Brown had 11 points and 4 rebounds. Ryan Kelly had 17 points, 1 rebound, and 2 assists. Robert Sacre had 10 points, 9 rebounds, and 1 assist. #GoLakers
