Lakers Vs. Nuggets: Denver Takes On Other L.A. Team After Defeating Clippers On Thursday

The Denver Nuggets were in Los Angeles on Thursday and picked up a victory over the Clippers, 112-91, avenging a loss last Sunday at home to the Clippers. On Friday, the Nuggets will clash with the Los Angeles Lakers at the Pepsi Center. And snow won't stop the game from happening. Both the teams landed in Denver before the snow storm really picked up on Friday.

This nationally-televised game on ESPN will feature a Nuggets team that ended a two-game losing streak with that victory over the Clippers. This will be the second game of a three-game set, with the final game on Saturday against the Portland Trail Blazers.

The Lakers, meanwhile, enter Friday night with a two-game winning streak in hand but looking to change their fortunes on the road. The Lakers are just 2-7 on the road, but one of the last two wins did come on the road. The two teams played back-to-back games against each other on Dec. 31 and Jan.1, the road team taking the victory in each.

Game time/date: 8:30 p.m. MT, Friday, Feb. 3, 2012

Location: Pepsi Center, Denver, CO
