The surging Los Angeles Lakers will head to Denver to do battle against the Nuggets on Monday evening.

The Los Angeles Lakers, who have been shockingly inconsistent this year given their level of talent, are currently in the midst of a three game winning streak. The Lakers are fresh off of a 103-99 win over the Dallas Mavericks and are 7-3 in their last ten games.

Kobe Bryant recently promised that the Lakers would make the playoffs and followed this up with a 38 point performance against the Mavericks. The Lakers currently have a record of 28-29 and are 2 1/2 games back of the Houston Rockets for the eighth spot in the Western Conference.

The Denver Nuggets, on the other hand, are having a great season, having posted a record of 35-22 up to this point. The Nuggets, who are led by Danilo Gallinari, are one of the NBA's toughest teams at home, having compiled a home record of 23-3 so far this season.

The Lakers, on the other hand, are 10-18 on the road this season.
