This can really go one or two ways, with the defending champions flattening the Lakers amidst a party atmosphere or the bubble can burst.

Defending champions are there to be shot at and the Lakers, catching five points on opening night, will be no pushover.

We’re willing to bet on the former scenario with the feel-good factor carrying the Nuggets to a comfortable win and no championship hangover.

Pick: Denver Nuggets -4.5
