The Lakers won all three games in Week 17, climbing to within one game of .500 (28-29).  With only 25 games left in the regular season, the Lakers still have to make up ground on the 31-27 Houston Rockets to climb into the top eight in the Western Conference. The Utah Jazz and Golden State Warriors might be within range of the Lakers, but they'll need to continue to win the way they did last week. The Lakers are still four losses below the cumulative predictions for weeks 1-17 . Monday at Denver Nuggets The Lakers and Nuggets have already met three times this season.  Denver has won two, including one at Staples Center.

The Lakers (17-23) visit the Chicago Bulls (23-16) on Monday night, playing on the second night of a back-to-back. Luol Deng is questionable with a hamstring issue for the Bulls. Oddly, Chicago is just 11-11 at home. They've been dominant on the road at 12-5, but there's a slight vulnerability for the Lakers to exploit. Of course, the Lakers haven't played well consistently. They'll need their best game to beat the Bulls and that's a little much to ask given the minutes played in Toronto on Sunday.
