We'll see if that holds true Tuesday night in Los Angeles.
Millsap missed 44 games with a left wrist injury before returning February 27 against the Clippers. He then delivered a one-handed push pass to Zizic, who was wide open under the basket for an easy dunk.
"I'm starting to get my rhythm back a little bit", Millsap said. Ball said Friday that Murray is "going to do circus stuff".
The Lakers (29-35) are coming off a 108-107 victory over Orlando on Wednesday.
The two teams also faced off in Denver on December 2, when Murray dribbled around Lonzo Ball as he was walking off the court in the final seconds of the Nuggets' 115-100 win. "(It was) just some trash-talking toward our guys", Walton said.
The Los Angeles Lakers are in the midst of a brutal stretch of their schedule.
Sometimes LeBron James makes the game look awfully easy.
When asked about Murray dribbling around Ball the previous time they played, Ball said the Lakers didn't forget it.
"I felt like for the second time we played here, Murray was being a little disrespectful at the end of the game", Walton said (h/t ESPN).
"I can't control what the other team's gonna feel", he said. "I'm going to go out there and hoop".
Nikola Jokic had an opportunity to chuck up a three early in the shot clock, but he passed it up in search of a better shot.
Los Angeles was defeated in their last game by the Denver Nuggets, 125 - 116; Nuggets finish game on 18-6 surge. Lopez ended up with 29 points, 2 assists, 5 rebounds, 2 blocks and 3 threes with 0 turnovers in 32 minutes. The Lakers had their four-game road winning streak snapped.
Here is what you need to know before the Lakers host the Cleveland Cavaliers. They've blown second-half leads in each of their last three losses, including 19-point edge against the Clippers last week.
Much of that has to do with the addition of two former Lakers: Larry Nance Jr. and Jordan Clarkson.
It was too close of a game for comfort, but at the end of the day, what matters is the Nuggets kept their playoff aspirations alive. Initially ruled goaltending, the play would have cut the score to 121-118, but a video replay led to the call being overturned, sending the Lakers into foul mode and the Nuggets to their 36th win.
Lakers: The Lakers signed F Derrick Williams to a 10-day contract on Friday.
Nuggets coach Mike Malone said he would review the incidents.
Nuggets: F Wilson Chandler was inactive with a hip injury. And Jamal is able to play with emotion, but I never want it to border on the line of being disrespectful to your opponent. "Like I said, ain't nobody anxious about him". "That says a lot about that guy".
