With so much on the line tonight we are going all out to document the action. Kurt Helin from Forum Blue and Gold and yours truly will be running a tag team live blog right here on Roundball Mining Company for game five of the Western Conference Finals.
Will Carmelo bounce back from two disappointing performances in Denver? Can Denver continue to overcome the Lakers’ size in the lane or will the Lakers repeat their dominance from game one? Is J.R. Smith about to catch fire and go on one of his incredible hot streaks? Can Kobe keep carrying the Lakers game after game? Will L.A. get Pau the ball? Will Andrew Bynum start playing like he is the biggest dude on the court like he did in the fourth quarter of game four? What will Dahntay Jones do for his next flagrant foul? Will we see a game with over 100 free throws attempted? Will any member of the Lakers’ supporting cast have a big game? Which team will put a strangle hold on this series?
Check back at 6:55 PM Mountain Time (8:55 PM Eastern/5:55 PM Pacific) for answers to those questions and much more.
By the way, I was on the NBA Today podcast with Jason Smith today. We talk about getting in Kobe’s head and whether or not the Nuggets can win a game seven in Los Angeles.
