On Tuesday night the Nuggets did something they haven’t done in three years: play great basketball in the playoffs. Although the team won several games since its historic run to the Western Conference Finals in 2009, there was always something missing in those wins. They were hollow — strictly for the sake of putting a […]
I once again joined up with Andrew Kamenetzky of ESPNLA’s Land O’ Lakers blog to chat about Game 4 and what we might see in Game 5. Here is the transcript.
There was nothing more surprising in Game 4 than how easily the Lakers won.

Here is some additional food for thought before the Nuggets tee off against the Lakers […]
The Denver Nuggets live on points in the paint. In game 1 of their playoff series with the Los Angeles Lakers, they had no problem getting into the paint, what they had a problem with was scoring once they got there. The story of the game was the triple double by Andrew Bynum who completely […]

The Los Angeles Lakers are a very good defensive team. A big part of that is they do a good job of forcing their opponent to go to their second and third option on offense thus encouraging their opponent attempt low percentage shots.
