I hope the Nuggets can make both games at home....

A little pressure for the Lakers wouldn't be bad :D

Nuggets need to win this game, or else they would be gone fishing next week.

IMO the crowd will play a major role in the next 2 games. if they could come out the way the wiz fans owned lebron, then we will have a series. they should do everything possible to fire up the nugs and at the same time disrupt kobe and co. as much as possible. if a GS or washington type of crowd comes out at the pepsi center, then there is very little chance the nuggets won't be able to defend homecourt

Were definitely going to put somebody on that Bryant kid, said Nuggets coach George Karl. Im not sure who yet, seeing as how nobody on our team actually plays defense, but well figure something out.
Smart coach :applause:

Should be a good game i'm looking to see how my Lakers response to Denver's home court. To me it will be nice to see us win a PO game on the road.

Re: Round 1, Lakers @ Nuggets, Game 3, Sat 5:30pm ET
 
the fans will get into the Lakers players... it'll be interesting to see how Kobe reacts... usually in a hostile environment, Kobe will come up deferring to his teammates, trying to get them involve early. Now, if Lakers are down more than 6-8 points early in the game, he is probably going to start shooting... might not be the best interest for the Lakers, but if all he need is a shot or two to go in, and he can take over.

Hopefully, Lamar can be a factor in this game, seeing how he only play 20 minutes in game 2.

As for Nuggs, with the home crowd behind ya, I don't see any reason why they wouldn't want to make this game a 120+ pts contest. Forget trying to slow down the Lakers, just run, catch, and shoot. The only way to beat the Lakers is to beat them early, beat them often, and give Kobe & co. no chance to come back in the second half.

If this game comes down to the wire, I don't think Enver will have a chance.

Denver is too soft (less Allen Iverson) and they have a numbskull for a coach. Kobe is gonna be pumped up and looking to take their hearts. Lakers win by 9.

Re: Round 1, Lakers @ Nuggets, Game 3, Sat 5:30pm ET
 
I hope the crowd chants at Kobe. That was the problem the first game, he was too damn happy and lackadaisical from having a good team around him. They start chanting at him, he gets fired up and he plays 3x better and more focused when he's pissed.

A "settlement" or "r-pist" chant will do just fine.

Will the fans sink that low? Then again I never expected the crowd at Staples to chant 'DUI' either.

They should bring in kate faber and have her sing the natl anthem, then sit her directly behind the lakers basket so she's in kobe's eyeline while he's shooting ft's. :oldlol:

Holding a sign that says "NO means NO!" :oldlol:

With hotel keys and the settlement papers hanging around her neck. :roll:

Its expected kleiza stays a starter for game 3, he has pain in his right elbow though.

Last match, we did only 12 assists..our worse since nov.24 vs houston(8 assists)..

NENE will play some minutes as well..

I really don't think the Pepsi Center can be any worse than Arco Arena!! I hope the Lakers come out attack from the opening tip off and don't stop until the final buzzer!!!




Let's Go LAKERS!!!!

And yea, I hope the nuggets crowd chants at kobe, it'll just make him that more fired up. He's one of the few players who plays better when he's angry.

Go lake show.

Another high scoring game, with the Lakers to win game 3 and all but ensure a Semi-Final place.

Lakers 129-121 Nuggets

This is one of those games where the Lakers are fully capable of winning but they could slack off and not match the Nuggets intensity from having their backs against the wall.

If they want to win it all they need to start winning games like this one. Close them out and put and add the final nails in to their coffins.

Key word....DEFENSE!!!!!!

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

I want to see Diawara get some PT. Other than being the only nugget guard that knows the word defense, he also doesn't talk too much unlike kmart and JR

Teams that have lead 2 - 0 in nba series 93.6 percent of the time went on to win the series...


We suck on road, but we are 33 - 8 at home this season...

Lets give it all, we have nthg to lose...:cheers:

Either way, I expect a nice brawl in the 4th quarter. Although, come to think of it, who would fight on the Laker's side? Odom and Turiaf, maybe?
