The Los Angeles Lakers and the Denver Nuggets will both be gunning for a victory on Monday when they meet at Pepsi Center.

ABOUT THE LAKERS (20-46): Shooting guard Nick Young is just 17 3-pointers behind the franchise record held by Nick Van Exel (183 in 1994-95) but his chances of breaking the mark are in jeopardy after coach Luke Walton pulled him from the starting lineup Sunday. Walton explained to Young that the organization wants to evaluate young players David Nwaba and Tyler Ennis and that his opportunities to play will be slim the rest of the season. “It’s that time of year,” Young told reporters. “He wants to check out the young guys, evaluate them. I understand that. It’s nothing personal. It’s not like I’m doing some crazy stuff.”

ABOUT THE NUGGETS (31-35): Denver gives up 110.9 points per game but has allowed fewer than 100 points in each of its past four victories and coach Michael Malone was particularly impressed with the last two contests — when his club limited high-powered Boston to 99 points and held Sacramento to 92 one night later. “That’s back-to-back games where we’ve had pretty good defense,” Malone told reporters. “If that can continue, we’re going to give ourselves a real chance down the stretch here. Our guys know it’s now or never. We can’t wait. If we want to be a consistent team that can win, it has to be defense.” Jokic has averaged 24 points over the past three games and has recorded six consecutive double-doubles.

Oddsmakers currently have the Nuggets listed as 13½-point favorites versus the Lakers, while the game’s total is sitting at 229.

The Denver Nuggets are attempting to hold off their competition for the final Western Conference playoff spot and will try to record their sixth victory in the past eight games when they visit the Los Angeles Lakers on Monday. Denver sits 1 1/2 games ahead of the Portland Trail Blazers with 16 games remaining and the Dallas Mavericks and Minnesota Timberwolves are also in the mix.

The Nuggets have thrived while dealing with injuries and adversity and have been able to protect their lead despite standouts such as center Nikola Jokic (illness) and forward Danilo Gallinari (vertigo) missing time. The contest against the Lakers begins a stretch in which Denver is at home for three straight games and five of its next seven. Los Angeles is fading to the finish and Sunday’s 118-116 home loss to the Philadelphia 76ers was the club’s ninth in the past 10 games. Shooting guard Jordan Clarkson scored a career-high 30 points and is averaging 21 points over the last five contests.

The Nuggets were a 105-92 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the Kings. They covered the -5-point spread as favorites, while the total score (197) made winners of UNDER bettors.

In their last action, Los Angeles was a 118-116 loser at home against the 76ers. They failed to cover the -4.5-point spread as favorites, while the combined score (234) was profitable news for OVER bettors.
