How to Watch Lakers vs. Nuggets Game 2 | 2024 NBA Playoffs Live on Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV & More on April 22




, , , ,

The 2024 NBA Playoffs continue with a marquee matchup in the Western Conference. LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers look to snag an upset against Nikola Jokic and the defending champion Denver Nuggets. Tonight’s action on the hardwood will live stream on Max.

During Saturday’s Game 1, the Nuggets proved too much of a force for the Lakers. Denver’s avalanche of offense in the Mile High City led to a 114-103 victory. In 2023, the Nuggets were able to sweep the Lakers en route to winning the Western Conference and the Finals. The Lakers will need a better defensive effort to slow down Denver if they want to escape with a win.
