Default The Denver Series is Done

Its a great feeling to watch a game knowing that the Lakers are just a better team. This reminds me of the days earlier in the decade and back in the 80's, the 1st round is insignificant.

yep the Nugs are deep dooo dooo, but they aren't done til they lose all four games. History is in our favor as teams starting 2-0 are 191-13. But hey 13 teams DID come back and win.

I don't want to see the Lakers give DEN any life or hope in this series, if DEN wins game 3 they will believe that they are right back in it. Right now we have to be in their head. Lets rip their heart out in game 3!

Once we were up to 3-1 against Suns and they did take the series. Lets see how we do the upcoming away games.

I am confident they can pull this of, but I dont want the Lakers to get too cocky. I want them to be focused. They lost focus at times throughout both games. They need to not take them lightly. I want them to come out hungry and intense in Denver.

Going up two wins to nothing usually leads to game three being played a bit lazy by the winning opponent.

Lakers might lose it but will then regain focus in games four and 5 hopefully.

Two down, two to go. Bring on Utah!! Next, demoralize and destroy the Spurs in round three. Then, the Celtics might put up a good fight in the finals but there's no doubt about it....

THE LAKERS ARE ON THEIR WAY
TO WINNING THE
FREAKING NBA TITLE MAN!

i want see what their character is made of out on the road. outside of the utah/houston series, road teams just haven't been able to win games on the road out west. i want to see how they adjust to playing in a hostile environment, hostile crowd, and of course kobe detractors.

The Lakers have only done what they are supposed to do...defend the home court. It is wayyyyyyyyyyyyy to early to get too confident. A 3-0 lead will give me that kind of confidence. It is tough playing in Denver. They are "expected" to win both of their games there. Nothing is done til it's done. That's why they actually play the games. But I dig the confindence!!

You all are right... shouldnt count the chickens before they hatch, but it was obvious in LA that the lakeshow was just a better team. I won't be as confident with Utah since they are sooo good at home. Good thing we have home court against them.
