Game 4 depends on Kobe's energy in all honesty. If Lakers simply keep the game close and Kobe conserves enough energy in the 4th quarter, I think Lakers will win again. If Kobe has too do too much in the 1st 3 quarters just to keep the Lakers close, he might not have enough to bail them out in the 4th, then ball game goes to Denver.

I expect Melo to shoot early and often tomorrow. But Lakers game plan is not to stop Melo, give him the points, but stop the easy dunks, the open 3s.

I think we can expect more touches for Gasol in game 4, if Gasol gets it going, great news for the Lakers because that means, Kobe can just play the facilitator role and look for his offense in the 2nd half. If Gasol struggles, you'll probably see Kobe go out and shoot like 8-20 in the first half just to keep the Lakers close. Or 3-16 and Lakers will be down by like 20 in the first half.

Lakers need to play with a sense of urgency. They weren't far off from being beaten twice at home so they can't always rely on their homecourt. But I suppose the later the series gets, the harder it becomes to win on the road.

Lakers by 50. I'm so sick and tired of watching this Nuggets team disappoint time and time again with stupid decision making. This series could be 3-0 if we learned to inbound the ball.

I think the Nuggets will win this game, this series has just been so even to this point, but I will be oh so happy if the Lakers can pull off a win in game 4.

UN TIEMPO!

I said Lakers in 6 so I had them splitting the first 4 games, meaning I think Denver wins tomorrow. Hope I am wrong and Lakers show a killer instict tomorrow!

I had said Lakers will sweep the series 4 - 0. Now my prediction is 4 -1. Lakers should win tonight and the next one and get ready for Cleveland hopefully. Cleveland is so overrated, while Orlando isn't too good either but Dwight Howard might give some problems in the interior so Cleveland is hopefully who the Lakers will face.

At any rate......Lakers will win the final this year!
