Exclamation Official Playoff PimpCast: Nuggets vs. Lakers, 4/20/08, 12:00PM PST, Staples Center

Hi Everyone,

Playoff PimpCast Edition


VS.

12:00PM PST // 3:00PM EST // 8:00PM UK Time
Television: ABC Television Nationally
Radio: LA Laker Radio Station

Season Record vs. Nuggets: 3 - 0

This is the official playoff gamecast for the Nuggets vs. the Lakers.

Let the games begin! The Lakers enter the playoffs with a new level of excitement that we have not felt for a long time. They finished the Western Conference as the number one seed and have a favorable playoff bracket in which to compete. They will have home court advantage throughout their playoff march.

Their first challenge is the Denver Nuggets. This is a team the Lakers should be able to beat as long as they take nothing for granted and work hard on both ends of the court. Despite the hype, the Lakers match up very well against the Nuggets and it will be interesting to see how Denver adjusts to the addition of Pau Gasol which they have yet to face in a Laker uniform.

Unfortunately, the Lakers will be without both Andrew Bynum and Trevor Ariza. Ariza would have been a great defensive stopper against AI, as he guarded him in the past and his length gave AI some challenges. Andrew will not be as critical in this matchup, but that does not discount his value to the team. We wish them a continued recovery with hopes that they can return in the next round of the playoffs, should the Lakers advance.

Game Preview: ESPN Game Preview

There will likely be a thread in the main forum, so please participate there as well and REPRESENT.

Go Lakers! It's time to shine!

Ariza would have probably played some secondary defense on AI but not straight up.

Ariza's too big and he'd get smoked by iverson every time.

Against teams like Denver and Utah we won't need Bynum to advance. However if we face phoenix, it's gonna be much tougher. Having Bynum is a garuntee to the finals.

Actually, I believe the last time the Lakers played the Nuggets, Ariza was put on AI and he definitely disrupted his ability to score... can someone verify this or am I confusing AI with someone else?
