Nuggets face tough fight vs Lakers
The Nuggets, down 0-2 in their playoff series against the Lakers, might be a bit more confident as the series switches to Denver, but only a bit.
First, the Nuggets weren’t exactly dominating at Pepsi Center this season, winning 20 of 33 home games, and in the playoffs their home record is mediocre at best with a 39-32 all-time mark.
Secondly, the Nuggets’ playoff history against the Lakers isn’t worth remembering. They never have taken a playoff series against the 16-time NBA champions.
