I can sleep well again tonight.
The Lakers defeated the Nuggets on Saturday night to reclaim home court advantage and take a 2-1 series lead.
Kobe was Kobe yet again and dominated the fourth quarter. The Lakers didn’t play one of their best games, but it was enough to steal a win in Denver.
The Lakers held the Nuggets to under 40% from the field, and only 97 points for the game. The Nuggets played aggressive all night and had 31 fouls putting several players in foul trouble throughout the night.
Since it is Saturday night, I’m going to keep it short and start celebrating.
Now, the bests of the day…
Top 3 Laker Performers –
1) Kobe did everything he could tonight. 41 points on 24 shots. MVP! MVP! MVP!
2) Trevor Threeriza stole the game again tonight with a clutch final minute steal and fourth quarter three’s.
3) Pau hit some big shots in the second half and helped the Lakers clean up the boards.
Lakers Smush of the Day (Note: STD denotes the Laker that played the poorest): Sasha looked very unimpressive… again.
Play of the Night: Kobe’s oop dunk with the foul!
What to Look for Next Game: Hopefully, a better effort from all the other Lakers who weren’t in the Top 3.
