The Denver Nuggets faced the Los Angeles Lakers last night and came out victorious. All starters scored in double figures as the Nuggets never led in the game. With this win the Nuggets were able to grab the 8th seed in the western conference. Nikola Jokic seemed to have an off game but still finished as the high scorer with 29 points and also managed to grab 15 rebounds. This will be the first edition of player grades so I will just start with the starters.

Overall the Nuggets played a great game although a 19 point 4th quarter lead ended up being a nail biter. The Nuggets must learn how to close out games more efficiently, but a win is a win especially one who puts you in the 8th and final playoff spot.
