Why do you say that?  Lajkers have no heart, they suck, and they have a horrible coach, and they already chokerd away a chance to clinch at home.  This game - like the rest of this series has been - will be a complete sh&tfest.  If someone forced me to make a play I'd take Denver in a heartbeat.

gotta like denver here....last 2 games have been won by road team...but before that..its been primarily a home team series...with the home team winning 6 of 8...denver has a great home crowd..we all know about the air up there..and generally denver is a much different team at home...faster, more productive, and far more athletic.sprinkle in some home cooking calls...could be a recipe for a good old fashioned home team win. this has the making for a 7 game series...could be one of the first in this first round. lakers were horrible all year long on the road...glta! pirate

LAL @ DEN -2.5 O/U 196

Hype is that Bynum gave DEN the incentive to beat LAL last gm with his quotes about teams folding in the 4th gm.

Actually it was his poor defense of McGee who put up double his average of only 11 ppg (21 pts) that helped DEN win.
Also Miller's sharp shooting helped too. He was 100% from 3pt and FT, and 8-11 from the field, for 24pts. (avg 10 ppg)

People complain that Kobe shoots too much and doesnt' pass, especially when he scores in the 40s. But last gm he shot well. So what if he takes 43% of the entire Laker team's shots.

As always, Lakers need to get the ball inside to Bynum and Gasol. The Nuggets have no answer to these big men inside. (Mozgov? McGee?)

Bynum will get redemption for his quote blunder tonight. Maybe some defense Andy?

Taking the LAL +2.5

(Ken Mauer is on tonight. I love this ex-con/NBA ref. He also holds the world record for the most technical fouls called in 30 seconds)

(Rodney Mott is a fun guy too, he will curse and flip off the fans if you yell at him.)

ESPN is reporting that Kobe will play. I still like Denver to win, and with Kobe playing i'm going with the over.

I see Kobe going off tonight in Denver.  He's sick, can't play blah blah....could this be a comparison to MJ's sick game?  Maybe. Bynum gets aggressive tonight inside...scores and he's a pretty decent foul shooter.  Lakers getting points...I'm in.

Lakers +3
GL to all!!
