Score: 84 - 99
Point Spread: -3½/-105 Denver
4* NBA *Crunch Time Bailout* on Nuggets -3.5
At home following losses in the first two games of this series, the Nuggets will bounce back strong tonight.
Denver has done a good job of pushing the pace in this series, but it hasn't shot the ball well. Rest assured, the shots will fall easier at home where the Nuggets are shooting 47.9% on the season.
The Nuggets are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 games following a loss while the Lakers are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following a win. It is also worth noting that the Lakers have been a fool's gold underdog in the postseason at 0-4 ATS in their last 4 playoff games as an underdog. The Nuggets are 9-4-1 ATS in their last 14 playoff games as a favorite.
It's already do-or-die time for the Nugs considering the daunting history of teams facing 0-3 deficits. They'll show up in a big way tonight.
