Re: WCF: Nuggets vs Lakers
The Nuggets had lost seven consecutive postseason series before beating the Hornets this postseason.
Until this year, the Nuggets had not advanced past the first round of the playoffs since 1994.
The Nuggets are the only active former ABA franchise never to win a title in the ABA or NBA.
Carmelo Anthony has won only one postseason series (1-5).
Nuggets coach George Karl has taken five franchises to the postseason. Only Larry Brown has done it with more teams (seven).
The Lakers have made the most NBA Finals in history with 29 but are just 14-15 in those series.
Lakers point guard Derek Fisher has never lost a first-round series in his NBA career (11-0).
The Lakers won five of their 14 NBA titles while the franchise was located in Minneapolis.
Phil Jackson has won nine NBA titles as a coach. He is tied with Red Auerbach for the most all time.
