Another second game of a back-to-back in Denver. After all the crap they've talked, I'd really love to put them in their place and beat them at home.

Lakers gonna be 2 games under 500 again.

☑ Back to back
☑ high altitude BS?
☑ playing against an over-500 team
☑ depleted front court

Looks like a recipe for disaster but I still think we win this one.

Arguably the biggest game of the season. All things point to a Nuggets win (23-3 home record, rested bodies etc.) but we also have some advantage over them. We have gained some good momentum these past 15 games and especially during this 3-game winning streak. We are more focused and we know what we want and what would happen if things start to go south. Like Jordan said "Our hearts are not fatigued. That is the most important thing." It's up to us now to truly show if we want this or not.

I agree with those who say this is the most important game of the season. From the looks of if, everything can either go up hill or down down down way down hill depending on this game.

Lets how Dwight looks tonight. All eyes on him against the Nuggets bigs.

Dwight needs to dominate. Hopefully he doesnt get winded more quickly being in the mile high city.

This is the ultimate trial for Dwight Howard. We'll see if he answers the call.

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

This will be a tough game but it would be a pretty nice statement if the Lakers could pull out a W.

We need to win as many games as possible just to have a chance of making the playoffs. Kobe and Dwight cant take any games off.

even when they had melo, afflalo,smith and nene they could be beaten at their home

Very true. I heard they may also be missing Gallinari tonight as well. And also the nuggets have talked a lot of ish not just Corey Brewer but I remember Ty Lawson said something like "the lakers were easy I'm not gonna lie" after the last time we played them. Hopefully that will motivate us even more

Indeed a big game for us, friend of mine is a Denver fan so hopefully I'm able to rub it in her face.

This will come down to the final two or three plays. Hopefully the Lakers pull through. Seems every time, this year, we we're close to .500 we go on a downward spiral. No more time for that.

Just want to prepare you guys so you don't blow up from anger that, besides our already horrible chance to win this game, the referees will absolutely rig the [expletive] out of the game. Don't get mad when it happens, just be ready and expect it.

Dwight has to go maybe 42+ minutes in this one. Can't afford to have Lawson and Faried fly to the paint all day.
