The refs didn't cost LA the game. The Lakers played with no energy tonight and maybe rightfully so after playing the Suns last night. Crap happens and LA lost. Still best team in NBA and best George Karl can hang his hat on is a home win over LA in February.

This is without a doubt a team lost. No communication on defense and they flat out were terrible on offense. They came out flat and stayed that way. Sometimes that happens on back-to-backs.

The refs did somewhat kill the tempo of the Lakers game. But yes, Lakers were terrible all night. Fatigue is to blame.

Bad shot selection, not running the triangle, and letting denver score easily in the paint were the main reasons we lost.

Eh, the Lakers had plenty of chances to take this game, but they just didn't capitalize. I will say that the refs killed the tempo of the game though. It was almost as slow as when we play in Sacramento, just horrible...

It's just one of those games. Poor offens, not enough defensive effort... The Lakers played on another back-to-back game and looked tired and out of sync. The Nuggets were far more motivated. We beat ourselves IMO...

Oh well... Looking forward to the next game at Phoenix. Let's hope the Lakers make some adjustments and bounce back :) Go Lakers !

To me it isn't that big of deal. LA lost in back to back game for second time since Drew went down. Bench didn't play well and neither did starters. To borrow a line from Kobe, flush this one and move on to Sunday. LA will be fine, but bench does need to pick it up.

The refs called ticky tack fouls on both ends. It messed up the rhythm of the game.

But overall, I think the Lakers did good. We were still able to hang in there until the end despite shooting 30% and as Stu Lantz said, the Lakers didn't even get to practice because they arrived in Denver so late. That takes a lot out of the players especially playing in the mile high city. Imagine if we had a decent shooting night.
