    I believe that if Denver is to win this series they need to win this game. If the Lakers go up 2-0, the Nuggs would have to win 4 out of the next 5. I don't see that happening. Unfortunately, Denver already had a great chance to steal a game on the Lakers court and blew it. I'm not feeling confident.

    I feel lazy today so I'll copy my post from the first game thread:

    Unfortunately I have a feeling that Denver loses big tonight, and I know the Lakers will go on a run and George Karl will wait for the Lakers to get up by 14 before calling a time out instead of call in one early to try and stop there momentum, Karl is pathetic. For Denver to have a chance Carmelo has to get 30-35 points Billips 25-30 and Nene need about 20 plus 10 rebounds. But bottom line is Kobe will be Kobe and the Lakers are going to break there foot off in the Nuggets ass, and I'm going to break something in my house...DAM YOU KARL..DAM DAM DAM!

    I guess Nugget fans don't like George Karl?

    I don't like Karl, he is the weakest link on the Nuggets. Denver would have a better chance of beating the Lakers with some coach who actual makes in game adjustments instead of a bunch of rah rah let's go guys all the time. Denver has gotten into the playoffs the last few years on talent alone, and have know gotten to the west finals on talent and Chauncey Billups's leadership. A better coach and Denver wins 60+ games in the regular season and at least has a chance of beating the Lakers.

    I hope Phil made good adjustments tonight. Lakers need to get Gasol touches and Bynum needs to play better Dee grab boards and NOT comment any dumb fouls. Good team defense always helps of course and Kobe getting everyone involved and taking the game over when we need him to. I hope Brown gets good minutes and dees up on Billups.

    AND LAMAR STAY FOCUS!!!!!!

    We got this if they do. GO LAKES!!!!!

    You want it to be a close game? I'd prefer a blowout.

    Stupid Nugget Fans do. A lot of these so called Nuggets fans came over when AI was traded here, and now that Denver is doing well, the only thing they know about them is that a year ago everyone hated Karl, so that must still be the case.

    Nuggets will provide another hot shooting night headed by melo. But jackson will put kobe on melo in the 2nd for ultimate ball denial and lakers will go into halftime up by 6. 3rd quarter nuggets get fiesty and take a 7 point lead on LA. But LA comes back in the 4th lead by odom and kobe. Lakers win 104-95.

    Expect big things from odom tonight. Sasha and brown will also hit 3 threes each.

    First of all I have been a Nuggets fan since 1991 which I think is a little bit before AI got here. Karl is not a good coach, he has a lot of wins, but there is a reason he has no championship ring. And last year all those "smart Nuggets fans" hated and wanted Carmelo gone... think about that for a while. Karl has gotten Denver to the playoffs that's the best he can do. Billups is the reason Denver is where they are now, Karl has been screaming defense for the last 3 years, as soon as Chauncey arrives they all of a sudden play a little D. Karl will eventually destroy this team if he doesn't get the credit he thanks he deserves.
