LeBron James and the Lakers will look for an upturn to their recent form when they go head-to-head against Nikola Jokic and the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday in one of the final big intra-conference matches before the NBA Playoffs. Watch the match on TV and on live streaming.

After sealing the top seed in the Western Conference after a decade, the Los Angeles Lakers fell into a mini-slump, losing against the Toronto Raptors and Houston Rockets in back-to-back matches.

However, with just three matches left in their regular season campaign, the Lakers have been giving extra minutes to their bench players as coach Frank Vogel looks to get everyone in sync before the NBA Playoffs commence.

With two wins and two losses in their past four matches, the Denver Nuggets have been hot-and-cold since the NBA’s restart in Orlando. Their offence, however, has been stellar and is averaging a shade over 118 points per game.

Nikola Jokic has been in terrific form and scored a triple-double in the Nuggets’ 132-126 win over the San Antonio Spurs. The 24-year-old is the key to the Nuggets’ offence and Defensive Player of the Year candidate Anthony Davis will have his work cut out trying to contain the Serbian.

The Nuggets need a victory to maintain third-spot in the Western Conference standings. The in-form Houston Rockets, currently the fourth-seed, sit just a game and a half behind in the standings, making victory imperative for Denver.  

James Harden, Russell Westbrook and the Rockets will be in action against the San Antonio Spurs, who are fighting for the eighth-seed in the Western Conference standings.

James Harden’s form will be crucial if Houston Rockets are to grab third spot in the Western Conference

The Eastern Conference’s top-seed, the Milwaukee Bucks and reigning NBA champions the Toronto Raptors will also go head-to-head on Tuesday. The Bucks have won two and lost a couple while the Raptors have lost just one of their four since the NBA’s restart in Orlando.
