Default Denver Nuggets vs. L.A. Lakers Game 3 Questions

-The Lakers are going into the Pepsi Center up 2-0, they have all the momentum and not to mention a sharp shooter named Kobe, can the Nuggets gain momentum from the crowd?
-Can they stop Pau and Kobe from scoring large amount of points?
-Is Melo going to give up his self-fish playing style in this series?
-Are the Nuggets ready to commit to playing defense for a full game?
-Will George Karl start getting off the bench and start yelling at his players to play more and aggressive defense?
-Can the Nuggets get the 3-point shooting going?

.....And finally can the Nuggets do better than having 12 assists in a game?

The answer to all that is "YES", but the big question is, Are they willing to do whatever it takes to go to the next level?

The Pepsi Center has the tendency to be super loud when Denver is on a roll and pin-drop silent when they're cold. They don't really lift Denver out of their slumps, mostly just cheer them on when they're playing well. But being on their homecourt will take their confidence sky high.

If they keep playing like they have been, no.

I don't know if he's been "selfish".. but he could definitely pass a bit more.

I wouldn't think so, no.

No.

I don't even really think Denver can shoot 3's well period. It's really not their game. Only players that can shoot the 3 are JR and Kleiza. AI and Melo bring in 1 or 2 once in a while but aren't a major threat. I would say 3 point shooting is the least of their problems; they shouldn't really focus on that at all.

They just need to play more unselfishly, simple as that. I would imagine they would have more than 12 with AI starting at the point, but apparently not. But there's no way Denver is going to win if they have less than 25 assists in any of the games.

Right now, they don't have the heart or determination. Or at least they're not acting like it.
