Go away with that crap. Give credit where credit is due. The Nuggets won that game. the Lakers played a solid game but they fell short, the Nuggets made the big plays when they needed them. Nothing wrong admitting our team got beat staright up.

Great post from John Ireland on his blog today.

I've watched a lot of playoff basketball, and I can't remember a time I've watched a series that has been as close as this one after two games. I mean, this is freakishly close.

Consider this:

--The series is tied 1-1.

--The overall combined score of both games is Denver 209, and the Lakers 208.

--After two games, Carmelo Anthony has scored 73 points, and Kobe Bryant 72.

Game one was close, coming down to the final buzzer. Then, after both teams made adjustments, game two was even closer than game one. This almost never happens, but check this out:

--The Lakers had 43 rebounds (13 offensive), while the Nuggets had 42 rebounds (14 offensive).

--The Lakers had 21 assists, while the Nuggets had 20.

--The Lakers had 13 turnovers, while the Nuggets had 14.

--Denver made 29 free throws, while the Lakers made 27. Each team missed eight free throws.

--Denver made seven three-pointers, while the Lakers made six.

--Denver shot 44% from the field, while the Lakers shot 45%.

--Each team had exactly nine steals.

The bottom line is that this is one of those series in which every possession could be the one that decides the game. The team that executes down the stretch and hits big shots will win, and every mistake could cost a team the game. Free throws will be critical.

Enjoy it while it lasts, it doesn't come along very often.

Oh really? Then why is it that Phil Jackson coached teams are 42-0 in a series when winning game one? Hes coached two COMPLETELY different teams in different conferences. Why is it the Nuggets are 0-8 and Karl coached teams are 0-9 in a series when losing game 1? Some things just stay consistent over the years...like the Lakers owning the Nuggets

Is not this the scariest part? Lakers are supposed to be the more talented team and if they are not then what's left, team chemistry?

Who's 2-3 on the road this post season with all the losses being blowouts? Ah, that's right. And those atmospheres aren't close to Denver's, literally and figuratively.

You Lakers idiots, not homers, will be heartbroken. Unbelievable how everyone still thinks Denver will crack at some point.

It's cool though.

Any intelligent laker fans want to talk? I'm tired of this kid stalking my posts.

Game 3 is going to be intense. I think either team has a good shot at taking it, we'll have to wait until tomorrow to see what happens. Can't wait.
