Lakers better come prepared to play physical D...to take Denver out of their sync.
I'll say this, Denver has never IMO had a bad defensive series the past 4 years. Its been offense that's been the problem, and while they've had some terrible defensive games the past month+, Denver's D for most of the year was top 7 in defensive efficiency. The fact that their pace gives up like 100+ possessions was why they were giving up 103ppg most of the year. But again, their D has regressed lately (even though in some of the games they've had to have their D has come to play like vs GS and Houston recently) so I don't know.
I think the ball movement of the triangle will hurt Denver, but...
