I can't say I feel good about this. Not after how we lost the past two games in similar fashion.
The good news is that the Nuggets have outplayed teams for three quarters and looked dominant while doing so. Showing their true potential.
The bad news is that they seem to have a mental issue in the fourth qtr and seem to lack self belief. It's almost like they now expect a team to come back at them. Gallo's lay-up was three qtrs of the way down the basket and then rolled out. Maybe they6 think the basketball gods are against them.
A win against the Lakers would be a huge psychological boost for them. I think they can do it.
Ty needs to dominate, Iggy on Kobe will be a great match-up. I think a McGee, K2 line up should work well against the Lakers. I expect to see a fair bit of that tonight.
The critical match up will be Gallo v MWP. If Gallo can produce (and he should be motivated) then Nuggets stand a very good chance of winning this one.
