Default Re: WCF: Nuggets vs Lakers

{Team Stats/Info}

* 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.
