Kobe is to blame for the jump ball fiasco as he tried to dribble through 2 defenders and lost it;Gasol saved it for the jump but Ariza lost his footing & Denver leaves LA like the Rockets did with homecourt advantage. But this time I don't think the Lakers will regain it back since Denver hasn't lost their only center like my Rockets did. Denver wins in 6.

Jackson is the culprit here. This "zen" thing is not doing them any good. I believe Farmar was playing better this time but Phil went to Fisher who made a couple of errant passes and TO's especially in the later part of the game. Now, their backs are against the wall and it's wishing time they would a game in Denver. Overconfidence again, makes sloppy play!!!

Phil needs to wakke up and bench Fisher. throughout the playoffs he gets burned on the lack of defense and can't shoot.

I know stealing & the LAKERS are lucky to have stolen game #1- L.A. needs to play the WHOLE GAME, not a 1/4.....I go take a pee & they blow an 11point lead @ 1/2time? Say what? Need a win in Denver or this season falls in this series, Kobe is 'mad' duhhhhh, maybe is Sacha coul dhit 1 friggin shot, or maybe rebound when the ball is flying about......Nuggets are the all tatooed team, lakers lookin more like the all taterred team....series will go 7 winner uncertain

You all better wake up to the fact the nuggets aint takin @#$% from nobody and that kobe "the messiah, knower of all, Most Average Player! bryant isn't that big of a deal. Once the lakers tasted their own blood they realized it too.

Phil, Honey, PLEASE tell Fish to stop driving the lane and not dishing to our bigs!
Like Kobe, I can live with the big three point attempt at the end of the game not falling (I wish someone other than Fish was on the floor, but I get your rationale), but I counted at least three or four times earlier in the game when Fish just kept driving the lane over and over again, and kept getting his shot blocked by Denver's bigs. He did not draw a single foul shot, and, if you do the math, it cost us the game (among other things)
No nookie for you!

If the fakers can't take one in denver (and theres no chance of that cuz we have real fans who show up early and watch the whole game)the series is over. You have always coasted on average teams propped up by the national media. Time to fall short again.

Maybe if Laker tickets are more affordable.... But love seeing movie stars and corporate tycoons at all Laker games.

Hey kuruptinthe303! What's their to do at sunny Denver, CO? Thats from laker fan. I'm not rying to talk a bunch of @#$% but you gotta give the little team from nowhere that could some props. Can't we get some national love when its due? Um, and whats there to do in colorado? Everything there is in cali except for surfing. Oh wait surfings been around for centuries and noone cares, but snowboarding started in colorado 20 years ago and is now an olympic sport! Nothing besides that i guess.
