DENVER (Ticker) -- The Denver Nuggets and Los Angeles Lakers are fighting for the sixth seed in the Western Conference.

The Lakers (40-37) have dropped five of their last seven contests heading into Monday's game against the Nuggets.

Denver (40-36) has won five straight to move into the sixth spot and is close to clinching a playoff berth.

Allen Iverson scored 34 points and Carmelo Anthony added 23 in Saturday's 96-93 win over the Los Angeles Clippers.

The Nuggets beat the Lakers, 111-105 last Tuesday at the Staples Center. Bryant scored 39 points, but the trio of Iverson, Anthony and Marcus Camby combined for 72 points.

Denver has won two of the three meetings against the Lakers.
