Round 1, Lakers-Nuggets game 2, Wed 10:30pm ET
 
Lineup change by GK:

Quote:

Denver's Linas Kleiza will start Game 2 on Wednesday in the Nuggets-Lakers series, coach George Karl announced Tuesday. The 6-foot-8 Kleiza will replace 6-2 Anthony Carter, giving Denver more size and scoring in the lineup.

"It's definitely an opportunity, but it comes with a lot of responsibility," said Kleiza, who scored 23 points in Denver's Game 1 loss on Sunday. "And a great opportunity can be taken away fast."

LA needs to stay home with this guy at the 3 pt line, hes been killing them from there last few times they played. Not sure how Denver will change its approach in guarding Kobe this game but either way, LA will have a matchup to exploit...

Too much defensive pressure will be put forth trying to guard AI and Carmelo that Kleiza and JR Smith will have open looks from 3. Nuggets by 6!

shouldn't matter too much, the backcourt and vlad (or whoever's at the "3") will have statistically bigger games, doesn't seem like an adjustment that solves the problem of being outmatched.

Its not that big a deal... that change only creates other matchup issues for Denver.... and they still don't play defense. Its a chess match....

Pjax > Karl...

It helps the Nuggets defense a little bit but as long as Camby plays the way he played in game one (see: nonexistent), the Lakers are still going to dominate us on the glass. Odom and Gasol combined for another 30-40 rebounds?

Where does it create matchup issues for Denver? They took out a midget that can't guard anybody on the floor buy perhaps Fisher (who he's not gonna be on) for a guy that can be on the floor and play some at the 2, some at the 3, and the four and considering Odom plays at the 4 its not a bad matchup at all. It will also put another player out there that can rebound and shoot and run the floor.

Lakers just need to do what they did in the first quarter in game 1....but this time strech that over the entire game. All will be well.


GO LAKES!!!!!!!!! DEFEND OUR HOUSE!!!!!!!!!

It does not make any matchup problems for Denver. I was wrong. Denver will win it in 4 straight with Kleiza in...

Predict Kobe's line for game 2:

34 points (11-25 FG), 7 reb, 5 ast. He will be 5-16 at one point and hit 6 of his last 9 late.

If he takes more than 20 shots, I will be disappointed.
