Television: ESPN Television Nationally



Season Record Lakers vs. Nuggets: 3 - 1
Round 3 - Playoff Record Lakers vs. Nuggets: 2 - 1


Lakers get back home court advantage. Have the Nuggets given all they can? Or, will the Lakers try to mail in game 4 and not show up?

Discuss.

Nuggets should crush the Lakers by 20. They can't afford to lose now.

My original prediction was Denver taking Game 3, then the Lakers taking Game 4.

I still think this series goes 7 games so Denver will take Game 4. I just hope the Lakers don't get blown out. :no:

And the anxiety begins...

I orginally said the Lakers to win in 5 or 6 games and will stick with that. Stealing game 3 was huge and L.A know they can win in Denver. You could argue the Nuggets outplayed the Lakers in two of the 3 games yet are down 2-1..you can look at that a few ways but to me that means trouble for the Nuggets.

Depends how badly this Laker teams wants this game. But at the end of the day the Lakers now have backcourt back which was the main thing coming into these two games.

Game 4 depends on Kobe's energy in all honesty. If Lakers simply keep the game close and Kobe conserves enough energy in the 4th quarter, I think Lakers will win again. If Kobe has too do too much in the 1st 3 quarters just to keep the Lakers close, he might not have enough to bail them out in the 4th, then ball game goes to Denver.

I expect Melo to shoot early and often tomorrow. But Lakers game plan is not to stop Melo, give him the points, but stop the easy dunks, the open 3s.

I think we can expect more touches for Gasol in game 4, if Gasol gets it going, great news for the Lakers because that means, Kobe can just play the facilitator role and look for his offense in the 2nd half. If Gasol struggles, you'll probably see Kobe go out and shoot like 8-20 in the first half just to keep the Lakers close. Or 3-16 and Lakers will be down by like 20 in the first half.

Lakers need to play with a sense of urgency. They weren't far off from being beaten twice at home so they can't always rely on their homecourt. But I suppose the later the series gets, the harder it becomes to win on the road.

I had said Lakers will sweep the series 4 - 0. Now my prediction is 4 -1. Lakers should win tonight and the next one and get ready for Cleveland hopefully. Cleveland is so overrated, while Orlando isn't too good either but Dwight Howard might give some problems in the interior so Cleveland is hopefully who the Lakers will face.

At any rate......Lakers will win the final this year! :applause:

Depends on how the support cast of Kobe responds. If Gasol gets going, Kobe will be the faciliator and the Lakers will win this game.

This is a must-win for the Nuggets, so I expect the Nuggets to play with some urgency and not jack up jumpshots like they did in game three.

Would of could of should of. Lakers could of also won game 2 so it could be 3-0 with the Lakers holding that advantage. Any how the Nuggets are a great team but so are the Lakers and it's going to come down to who wants it more tonight...who executes better....who makes the best adjustments...and which stars (Kobe, Pau, Lamar. Bynum, Ariza) will shine. I hope the Lakers take full advantage of this opportunity to go up 3-1 like they did in the Jazz series. KILLER INSTINCT!!!!!!!!!!!

I hope this team adapts the Mamba's attitude of ripping their hearts out. Because if they do and they keep it up....the title is as good as theirs!!!!

One game at a time though! GO LAKES!!!!!!!!!!!!

Play like champions!!! We got this!!!

If Denver wins, this goes to 7 and then who knows. If LA wins, it's done. Simply a must win game for Denver. Dunno if they can do it, but I have hope that they can. Nuggets by...three. I think if the Lakers win, it'll be by 10+.

If Kobe has too do too much in the 1st 3 quarters just to keep the Lakers close, he might not have enough to bail them out in the 4th, then ball game goes to Denver.


I expect Melo to have a big game tomorrow since the Nuggets have their backs against the wall for the first time this Playoffs.

As for Kobe, he said he couldn't even feel his legs anymore while shooting free throws at the end of Game 3. He said "I've never been this exhausted after a game in my life." But I'm sure Kobe will own the Nuggets yet again. Nothing can stop him. His Unstoppableness is unstoppable!!!

crisoner
05-25-2009, 05:57 PM
Kobe is gunna need some help big time this game if they are to win.

I think Pau and LO are going to have big games tonight. Hopefully Bynum can get that one huge game? He is due right? Sprinkle a lil bit of Fisher getting his swag back plus the bench mob playing great DEE down the stretch and the Laker will be fine with the dubb. I know it is a whole lot to ask but this team better start using it's talent.

GO LAKES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dont like the Lakers defence on the perimeter right now. Last two defensive possesions both brown and vujacic had too open of a stance for defending up the top.

I get that theyre trying to force side line - end line but they've gotta close their stance a little bit as right now theyre funneling them straight to the cup.

If an offensive player can go in a straight line toward the rim with one dribble your help defence aint gona stop anyone.

Thats the biggest adjustment on the defensive end the Lakers can make right now I think.

Too early to be saying that especially with Gasol doing his job. Someone else will step up. Didn't like that touch fouls are being called against the Lakers, but the contact on Bryant during his shot is not called. Inconsistent. At least it isn't as bad as game 3 of Orlando/Cleveland officiating.
