If there's any silver lining in the Denver Nuggets' heartbreaking 92-89 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday, it's that the Nuggets will get a chance to exact some revenge just over 24 hours later. The Lakers will visit the Nuggets for the first time in this season on Sunday, with key C Andrew Bynum in tow, looking for a clean sweep of the two teams' 2011/2012 back-to-back.
The other silver lining for the Nuggets is that their youth and depth should give them an advantage in Sunday's game, and that's to say nothing of Denver's thin air. The Nuggets will need contributions from all angles to counter a Lakers team that is even more potent after the return of Bynum, who put up 29 points and 13 rebounds against Denver on Saturday.
