Agree with Phil. They did outplay us. Kobe was really the only guy who showed up for us tonight. They other guys may have made some key plays and shots, but they weren't consistent throughout.

Well it was an adjustment game. It's good that we managed to adjust within the game and win this. They outplayed us mainly in the paint. The Nuggets were rested and played with lots of energy. I'm expecting a far better game 2 by the Lakers.

Surprised he did this, but with guys like Melo and Billups, I think it's good that he didn't take any chances.

They need to get the bigs involved somehow. They can't keep relying on Kobe.
Thanks to TV and for the convenience of TV, you can only be one of two kinds of human beings, either a liberal or a conservative.

^Yep. Gasol got some baskets off offensive boards, but he seemed passive in the post and didn't create a lot of opportunities for himself. Odom played below average, and Bynum disappeared (mostly due to foul trouble).

You're crazy if you think Kobe will somehow manage to win this series for us. Even if he somehow pulls off that miracle, it won't come without a price. Kobe having to shoulder all the offensive load while having to shut down their best player on the defensive end? That isn't exactly an ideal situation. Even if Kobe does have a huge advantage, the less Kobe has to do, the better. This should be the team's series, not a player's.

i think what he's sayin by "this is kobe's series" is that since kobe has an advantage it will be easier for him to get easy buckets. he's not gonna wear down fast cuz itll be effortless buckets. unlike the battier hand to the face on efvery shott

Right. as well with the way nuggs play D with their denial and overplaying the passing lanes kobe will have the opportunity to get a lot of 10-15 footers which is his strength

For the Denver Nuggets to have a realistic chance of winning their Western Conference Finals match-up against the Lakers
they are likely going to have to steal at least one game in Los Angeles.


They aren't 'likely going to have to steal' a game in LA. They absolutely HAVE to win one in LA. You need to win four games. Three of them are in Denver.

Otherwise a great article.
