Elite Kids Brandon Mebane Jersey The Nuggets travel to Los Angeles tonight in what Vegas has as the highest scoring and closest game of the night. Not only has Denver been scoring an incredible number of points lately, tonight they get the additional pace bump from the Lakers, who rank first in the league.

I just got to do that.
