Default Round 1: Lakers vs Nuggets

It is set, the Los Angeles Lakers will play the Denver Nuggets in the first round, LA with home-court advantage..

LA won the series 3-0 However, remember this dominance was with bynum [and his defense] The Lakers have not play the nuggets with pau this season

Phil was asked who he wanted to play in the 1st round, and he merely said if they play denver the score would be up about 10 pts from a series with dallas..


Let the discussion begin!

Lakers will take this, but I don't think it will be as easy as some believe. It's never a simple task to win in the high altitude of the Pepsi Center. Ultimately, though, the Nuggets just don't play enough defense to stop the Lakers.

LA in 6.

Denver will get hot in a couple of games and win a few, but I think the Laks will take it in the end. We did beat them without Bynum one game I think.

Im not looking forward to reading 20000 posts that say "Lakers are going to destroy them". That's not fun to read or hear on TV as a Denver fan but i'm looking forward to the challenge.

THOUGHTS

-Hopefully Nene's stamina and groin injury have improved to where he can give us 15 solid minutes. We'll need his defense badly. If anyone can do a great job on Pau its Nene. He's far and away our best post defender.

-Iverson is a legendary playoff performer. Lets hope he steps up to the plate. This is one series where I don't want him gambling for steals too much. Fisher likes to only hit shots vs Denver.

-Kobe is Kobe. I fear him when he passes non stop and I fear him when he takes a ton of shots. We just have to hope to cancel him out.

-A.I. vs Kobe in the playoffs for the first time in 7 years. Two of the greatest offensive players in history going at it for the 2nd time. Can't wait.

This is the one series (okay phoenix if it comes to that) where I really wish we had Bynum. The rest of these teams we can beat w/o him.


i think kobe may guard ai. i dont think ai will guard kobe.

And Melo will give anybody on him fits.


I really don't know if the Nugz will win (even though I love to get into homer mode for my teams in the postseason, its the only time I do it though). But I seriously like the matchups, I think people overlook how physical Denver will be for LA with Nene back and no Bynum. I seriously can see K coming close atleast to matching Pau's production, because I think his D is good enough to hold Pau down. I think the 3pt shooters for LA will have to be spectacular along with Kobe.
