Despite the loss, we played really bad. No execution at all, players weren't contributing by any means. But yeah, playing back to back hurt us. They seem tired, and being shorthanded kicked in.

Didn't play that poorly, gave up too much in transition which was to be expected playing in Denver on a back-to-back.

We played well offensively for the most part, but defensively we were pretty bad. A majority of it was transition defense, which is understandable since we would practically need Usain Bolt on this team to stop them. Other than that, I actually felt like we played alright. It was just one of those games where more things went right for them than for us.

Tired legs on defense. But it seems we've still come far. The must win is thursday against minni. We can't come a cropper in that one or we really are done.

We won't make playoffs winning just garbage teams, you know? To do so, we should be able to win games like yesterday, but we just can't.

Winning in Denver on a second night of a back to back is impossible. They have the second best home record in the NBA .. plus we're old which makes things even worse ..

Of course, winning in Denver is impossible.

And I guess that also is impossible winning in OKC.

And winning in Indiana, and Portland...

Oh, yes, and make playoffs. That's another impossible thing.

Relax dude. Denver are extremely tough to beat at home (24-3) and they play the type of basketball that gives the Lakers the most trouble and winning on the second night on a back-to-back is always difficult. If it were San Antonio or Miami playing @Denver on the second night of a back-to-back, i'd still put all my money on the Nuggets.

The nuggets have only lost 3 games at home....it was expected.

Didnt see the game so I can only go by the box score. 33 to 3 fast break points. Just 8 guys total played for us. Lakers shot 55%. Score 108 points and lose by 11.

The box score seems to tell the story this time. The starters played well, but got little relief from the bench ... because there is no bench to speak of, and the eventually just ran out of gas.

Denver is a tough matchup for us, but I'm getting really tired of the explanations/ excuses/ moral victory perspectives. This team is a .500 team, that's what the body of work says almost 60 games into the season. I am not impressed. Kobe is an amazing athlete, but there are just not enough horses around him to make this an elite team.
