The Lakers used energy, guts, solid defense down the stretch, and playoff experience to mount a tremendous come from behind win in game one. Los Angeles prevailed without playing their best, due to the fact that Kobe refused to let his team lose and the team was able to knock down 11 three point shots

His 40 point performance was outstanding but dropping 18 of those points in the fourth quarter to include six clutch free throws was even better. The Lakers bench out-scored and out-played the Nuggets bench, which is something that hasn’t happened enough.

Trevor Ariza didn’t play his best game but his effort was great and his steal not only was the exclamation point on a Laker win but was arguably his biggest play as a Laker.

Kobe literally did it all in Game One but he is going to need his teammates to ‘step their game up’ and knock down shots. The Lakers frontline was destroyed by the Nuggets front line; out-scored 68 to 26.

I hate to call a few players out but it is a fact that the Lakers need immediate improvement from Pau Gasol, Andrew Bynum and Lamar Odom. These guys not only have to have an impact on the game but they’ve got to play defense without fouling. Limit the Nuggets to one shot per possession.

Los Angeles needs to attack the basket early and often and not settle for so many jump shots. The Lakers stole game one, I’m not sure if the Lakers had tired legs from going through a seven game series but the energy & effort that the team showed in mounting a come back needs to be there from the start.

The win has also afforded them the opportunity to take a commanding lead in this series. Los Angeles trailed for the majority of the game but it is a known fact that the Lakers can play better. I can’t say the same for the Nuggets who wasted a phenomenal performance from Carmelo Anthony.

The Lakers will have to control the tempo, the glass, get back in transition, and stop the dribble penetration and rotate out to three point shooters. The Lakers will need to slow Carmelo Anthony, Chauncey Billups & Nene. J.R. Smith is an explosive scorer and instant offense for Denver but he appears to be slowed by injury.

I also feel that it will be extremely difficult for the Nuggets to recover from the game one loss mentally knowing that they played well enough to win but didn’t finish the game.

The Lakers need to play with a sense of urgency, stop being inconsistent, come out active & aggressive on defense from the start. Despite what happened in Game One, The Lakers are playing to their strength by playing through the post. Establish both Pau & Andrew and allow them to go to work or set the table for everyone else.

    “I also feel that it will be extremely difficult for the Nuggets to recover from the game one loss mentally knowing that they played well enough to win but didn’t finish the game.”

    Completely disagree. The Nuggets are feeling really good right now. They now know they can compete with LA. The Lakers need to take this game or it’s going to be a 7 game series.

  • Poem

    I feel like if the Lakers come out as if we lost game 1, then the performance will come with urgency! Without making excuses, the refs have to let both teams play, it cant be onsided or our big guys will get in foul trouble for doing nothing.

    The other way of thinking is the Denver Nuggest played their best against a Laker team that had an off night (i.e. they didn’t play well) and STILL LOST. The Lakers will play better.

  • Dboy

    The Nuggs played probably their best game and still lost. On the other hand only Kobe really played well offensively. If we get good game from Pau, Drew, and LO its a rap, they can’t compete with our talent whatsoever. I also want to see Joran play and reduce Sasha’s minutes.

  • gugy

    Lakers need to play with determination.
    LO, Bynum and Pau need to step up big time and help Kobe. If they do, we will win.
    This game is important. If we win, all the pressure will be on Denver to win twice at their home. Lakers will have a huge opportunity to steal a game there.

    Good luck Lakers!

    These are the Lakers in the WCF, not the Mavs or Hornets. If Denver gets a blow out, it’s not tonight on our floor. I see something like that in Game 3.

    A win tonight and this is a 5 game series. A loss tonight and this thing goes 7.

  • http://steveodesignedge.wordpress.com/ dEDGE

    Bynum needs to stay on the court and off the bench. Whenever he’s in foul trouble, Pau is swarmed by the defense. Bynum needs to be out there to keep the defense honest.

    Pau really looked fatigued on Tuesday. When he’s active and alert, he takes the ball on the mid-wing and faces up his man. When he’s tired, like in Game 1, he just sits in the post and puts up those cutesy shots. I look for a re-energized Gasol tonight.

  • ilikebasketball

    i think cleveland losing last night is a victory for everyone who despises david stern and/or nike telling people who our heroes should be! Cavs may still take the series, but most of the hype at least has been put away. atlanta and detroit weren’t competitive in the least.

    why the hell is derek fisher in the game in the last 5 min? he has nothing to offer at this point. game 1 was a fluke for what has been a slump for the past 3 months. those 3 blown layups in the 3rd qt? the terrible terrible d on billups. he seriously did not earn his time tonight. his rep should not be the reason why hes in the game. although browns shot is not proven, he has shown the ability to get loose balls and grab key rebounds. come on!! i love you derek fisher. now please sit on the bench.

  • Cooper

    Fisher just can’t plain make layups…he shouldn’t even attempt them. Have ya’ll noticed how referees don’t fall over his stupid tricks anymore when he goes in for a layup. Fish just jumps into someone, flails his arms, no call is made…and the ball ends up in the other team’s hands. Fisher gets killed on screen and rolls cause he’s too slow.

    I don’ want to hear about Fisher’s 0.4 anymore. That is ANCIENT HISTORY.

    Now Fisher’s shot is horrible. He can’t make damn layups and he can’t guard anyone.

    Next season – TOP PRIORITY is to get a viable point guard! Dead Fish needs to retire, Jordan is shakey, Shannon is up and down, and Sasha needs to be DEPORTED! He can’t hit the side of a barn with his shot.

    Priority 1B is to get rid of Luke – he is a flat out JOKE on the floor.

    does anyone realize how bad the lakers defense is? they give up so many 3’s for a reason. luk and fish always help down low and leave open 3 point shooters and try to rotate back when its too late. fish always leaves his man to double team down low (ytf would u double nene or chris Andersen????????????) if the lakers could stay home on defense and stick to their assignments lenis f’ing kleiza would not make 3 after 3 after 3…..

    lakers played well enough to win tonight. it is soooo sad that something so easy and fundamental could not be executed. this is exactly what happened last year to the celtics and this is what the lakers always do on defense…

    BTW FISHER SHOULD NEVER PLAY AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (1 for freaking 9!!!! Missed 4 3’s!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) I don’t care if he didn’t play most of the 4th quarter bc he played 28 MINUTES, which is way toooooo many!!!!!

    Why in the hell did Bynum not play in the second half he was playing well. I don’t understand Phil. Plus I will be the first one to say the Lakers R done they R mentally drained in the past kobe would say we R going to Denver to get both of these games not any more with this team. Denver will not lose at home.

  • gugy

    Lakerland,
    calm down!

    We need to be very patient with this team. I learned this against Houston. We have a talented team, but they do not have the easy route like the Cavs had so far. Truth to be told, I just tired of freaking out after every time we lose.
    It seems that the Lakers will bounce back and then possible lose it’s balance and bounce back again. Yes we have issues, but who does not.
    I believe we will rally next game and maybe we will lose in Denver game 4 but regain it at Staples. That’s just the way it is with this team. This could be probably a 7 game series.
    This is just the second game. It won’t be easy, so be prepared to be angry few more games. That just how this season is playing out for us.
    Last year we had easy until the finals and then we all know what happened. Maybe this year this struggle is happening for a reason. Maybe that’s how we will learn how to focus when we really need to win, when it matters most or when the season is on the line.
    I just say believe, because that’s all we have to do as fans.

    I’m done watching the Lakers and the NBA. If Ariza was LeBron (in that Kenyon Martin foul); well don’t even if he was LeBron just anyone in this year’s playoffs, that would’ve been a flagrant call but the focking refs swallowed the whistle because is Ariza who plays for the Lakers. When Kenyon just pushes Gasol into the stands that would’ve a foul call if he was Varejao. Then J.R. Smith gets away with running across during the jump up everybody saw that but not the refs. WTF?

    Now WTF was Bynum doing in the bench at the time when he finally was getting some things done in the paint? PJ took Bynum out and puts Odom in there … For what? Unfortunately Odom is ALWAYS expected to play big but when it matter the most especially in playoffs and last year’s finals he just disappears; about every time Odom tries to shoot jumpers I think myself Why?… Odom needs to focus more in rotating to the paint and get easy baskets; and when I say get to the paint to get easy baskets is not to just lay the ball up. With that body and length he should be more aggressive and go for the dunk. Odom never has improve his game he don’t have a descent jumper or a post up game. I see guys improve their game but I have always seen Odom play just about the same way and that to me is just inexcusable even fat baby Davis (from the Celtics) improved his game and a guy who is more athletic, taller and can handle the ball better can’t improve?.. Give a fricking brake he gets $14 m a year for this BS?. Then PJ took Farmar out of the game and he was playing good; finding guys in the area where the Lakers were getting very good things going (the paint). Again Why?… I just don’t understand.

    Fisher can make shots but many times he makes bad decisions and a lot of times the defense gets out of position because he is just too slow. He is just old.

    And again the Lakers have the bad habit of allowing teams to just come back in games. They slow down and fall asleep in the defense. This question is sooo focking old; where is the fvcking killer instinct of this Lakers team?.

    I saw it coming from a long way. Kleiza kept making 3 after 3 and PJ didn’t even call a time out. I’m 100% sure any coach from any other team would have at least try to stop that after the 2nd 3 point shot but PJ just seats in there and whistles and acts as if nothing is going on. Lol I can only laugh at that.

    game 2 kobe shots 10-20,melo 12-28=denver wins

    it seems that the more aggressive superstar wins the game.It sounds ballhog but I think kobe has to make it 30 or more shots a game.He have lots of mismatches agains jones,smith and carter even melo,trusting his teammates doesn’t work this series cause they succs.I miss the kobe that shoots 12 3′s,9 3′s a game,I miss him scores 55 a half,62 in 3 quarter or if possible 81 a game.Kobe just miss a lot of his shot cause he hesitate taking it thinking that critics might call him a ballhog.I want kobe to bring his vintage game and let the other laker just play their role as a defender.The bulls only has jordan and pippen scoring and the rest is defense,but kobe still dont have the pippen.Im sick of the lakers I want entertainment!

    Well at least Lakers didn’t lose game 1 in this series. The Cav’s are pretty much in same situation Lakers are if they win game 2. Hopefully we can win at least one over there and take home court back but its not gonna be easy playing in Denver. Lakers just need to have everyone step up because each round we go we have to move up a notch.

    You guys we just need to calm down alright this is the Western Conference Finals FYI all four teams left are obviously good and anyone can win on the opposing teams home court. Have faith guys we didn’t have the best road record in the NBA for nothing you know… we just need to make sure we get off to a good start in Denver and hang with them and I really feel like we’ll have a great chance to steal at least 1 game there,hopefully 2. We have the best team in the NBA and the best player I don’t care what anyone says, not even Buss he’s just saying that to motivate Kobe anyways. Denver will be tough to beat but so will we.

    We will be fine. That’s part of the struggle to be a champion. Boston last year had three 7 games series before the finals.

    we get it back if we win one in Denver. We have HCA as 7 series game.

    I am glad you got the point.

    Nobody said the Lakers would sweep Denver, so yes we will lose games. It is just part of the struggle.
    Look at the Cavs, they finally got some serious competition and lost the first game against a quality team. NOBODY is invincible. That’s my point.
    I still believe Lakers in 6!

    …One of the lowest class of individuals to ever play professionally in the history of the NBA; Kenyon Martin, ASSAULTED Gasol right out of the court, at the 3:15 mark of the 4th quarter, right in the fvcking corrupted grill of referee, Marc Davis, who had the gall to swallow his whistle! …When such an obvious assault is not acknowledged, it speaks volumes of what this sport is all about!
    …Like the boxer putting plaster of pares in his gloves and then acting the stupid!
    …Like the NBA sucking donkey balls and acting the same stupid!
    …Too many calls/non calls in the 4th quarter, going all one way-were needed, in favor of the dirtiest team to ever play in the NBA, in order to make the series seem more interesting! …Proves just how corrupt this particular game was officiated!
    …I would prefer, admire and respect the opposing team beating up on my team, within the rules, fair & square… But NEVER, with all the B U L L _ S H I T that goes on unchecked, in the so-called competitive world of the NBA!

    Before their finals against detroit, Phil had never lost a finals either. Now he has lost two of those.

    Comments are way too long right now.

    Bavetta needs to get his eyes checked.
    D-Fish needs to go back in time to find his shot.
    Sasha needs to go with him.

    The Lakers need to stop fouling. The key to our defense is playing aggressively, but keeping the other team off the foul line. We do that, we’ll win the game.

    Do not be an ass 4 sure. I am not imitating anyone or anybody. I am just being myself. A basketball purist who is in love with the game and myself. Well enough about me lets talk about the game. Lets talk about KObe. Kobe kobe kobe. I get a thrill up my leg whenever I say that name kobe. Kobe kobe kobe kobe. ooooooohhh I feel hot all over.

    ^^^^Hey Imbecile4sure,

    …The Jabberwocky that you are clearly and very distinguishably known 4, surely has been well documented across the Nation!

    …Your signature Jibber-Jabber is just plain & simple gibberish chatter that anybody with even half a brain wouldn’t waste their time paying any attention to!

  • MR. JUAN_YOUR WARLOCK

    Yeah 4 ass 4 sure you are such a jib jab. Leave the basketball knowledge to me. I am a basketball purist. I was with Naismith when he discovered the game. Sure he was a dirty old man but I learned from him. Why don’t you take you ass 4 sure and bring it next to me. I will do it to you “LIKE THEY DO IT IN THE ANIMAL KINDGOM”. Besides, I am tired of using my hand. Damn I wish I were still in prison with the sisters. Well I will always have Kobe to dream about. “Mom Mom can you buy more vaseline, My right hand is dry unless you want to give me a hand job mom”
