Agree that getting the ball out of LeBron's hands early in possessions is a winning strategy for Denver. The more other Lakers have to handle the ball and create offense, the better.I'd put Murray or Harris on Lebron and have him attack his dribble. Just try to steal the ball in traffic. That's an area he doesn't get calls. They would be at a severe strength advantage, but I think it is underused strategy on him. It makes him have to use more energy.
Davis has definitely given Joker problems, I think they would rather have Howard on him? Who guards Davis?
It does seem like Guarding AD and Lebron will be harder for Denver than LA guarding Joker and Murray. Denver needs to junk it up as often and in as many way s as possible.
Using Davis to guard Jokic would be a gamble because Jokic could easily get AD in foul trouble, and if AD gets in foul trouble that creates all kinds of headaches for the Lakers. Fortunately for them, McGee and Howard are both pretty good 1-on-1 defensive options vs. Jokic.
