Okay, I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that we see our first big nationally televised NBA coming out party for Ty Lawson in this Nuggs-Lakers game.

Might catch a Birdzilla sighting, too. He hasn't had a really great game yet this season, and is overdue for one.

ManRam
11-13-2009, 11:24 PM
I'm watching the Celtics/Hawks game...Rondo just blew by Bibby for only his second basket. He's been way too unselfish. He can get to the hoop at will, yet still looks to create. He's gotta be more aggressive...especially against Bibby. 9 assists is great...but he's gotta shoot more than 4 times. He just went at him again...and drew a foul. He needs to start looking for his shot.

A 30 point win is a statement. Whether it's now or then. Sure, ultimately the playoffs is all that matters...but nonetheless, they made a statement tonight. If LA won by 30, they would have made a statement too...and you'd agree.

A loss is a loss, regardless if its a 1 pt loss or a 30 pts loss. It has the same value. Just another season game, nothing else. If Lakers won by 30, why would it be a statement game? LOL last time i checked we are defending champions, the one who sent home the nuggets on their home floor. We have nothing to prove.

I don't quite agree with that. When you lose by 30, that means there's still some things to work on, and ok, they won the championship last year, but they haven't won it this year. It's a long road back to the championship.

So what if we lost by 30. We are missing our 2nd best player on a back to back, plus none of the starters played in the fourth quarter, I am sure if they had some minutes in their it would of been a lot less, maybe 15-20 pts. As for the Nuggets, it was a great win, but my question is, can you win when it really counts?

It's all subjective, but it counts right now...Taking one game at a time, and making sure we build a good foundation of positioning in the playoffs.

I guarantee if Nuggets take HCA in the playoffs due to all the games won early in the season [like this one], then the Lakers will have a much harder time then last year against the Nuggets.

You can "lol" it off if you like, but if you think this wasn't a really big game for both teams, and a game both teams wanted to make a statement with, you're kidding yourself imo. Rematch of the WCF finalists, cnance to get back at each others' throats after things got testy in the preseason. Both teams were chomping at the bit for a win in this game.

Thats bias speculation...Thats not absolutely known, because Lakers havent played Nuggets in the playoffs while Nuggets have HCA...And Lakers "HAVE" proven, but that doesn't give an indicator for whats to come this season...

Can't we just put all the negativity aside and end this game on a happy note? Yes the Lakers were playing back to back, and yes they were missing Pau Gasol, but obviously Denver wanted this game much more than the Lakers did, and showed that in the 2nd half. This is a season game that Denver really needed, and of course it doesn't really matter to the Lakers until the postseason. At the end of the day, it was a great win by the Nuggets, and I hope they can show this type of intensity in the future 3 matchups.

I've already said what I had to say. If you want to downplay the importance of this game, be my guest. I just happen to think it's a little ridiculous. Especially if you look at the intensity those dudes were scrapping with out there on the floor. Think Odom didn't think this was a big game? Think Artest didn't? Sure didn't look that way to me.

Big game or not Nice win for Nuggets.

Yeah, it was badly needed at this point. First two games were a b2b vs. Utah (home) and Portland (road). Then one home game, then 6 on the road in the East, comprised of 3 b2bs, and then back for one home game against the defending champs. So 7 of our first 10 were on the road, and 4 of those were the 2nd night of b2bs. The road trip really exhausted the team. They split it 3-3, which was a satisfactory result under the circumstances, but after losing to the Bucks in the last game, getting this win at home to go 7-3 instead of losing to drop to 6-4 makes the opening 10 of the season a real success, imo, given how tough a start we had schedule-wise.

Its just Carmelo just totally dominated in the 3rd and thats the quarter where you guys pulled away.
And we only scored 8 points in the quarter which is unexcuseable for us.But I expect us to bounce back next game.
Good luck to the Nuggets for rest of the season.
But I cant wait when Gasol comes back.

Yeah, definitely a much steeper mountain to climb for the Nuggets to beat the Lakers after Gasol is back, that's for sure.

But I really like the way our defense came together in this game. To me, the 3rd quarter was more about Arron Afflalo and the overall team defense than it was about Melo. There's still some coming together and learning (learning the system, and learning their fellow teammates) that this team has to do. Tonight was a big step forward in that department.

Well apparently you knew what word was intended, because you happen to know the correct spelling of it...But you happen to put emphasis on a typo because you dont have the mind capacity to bring anything to the debate....I know how Lakers fans act when they get madd..So it's nothing.

Go spell check sum moore, while I injoy the nuggetz wining dis game!!

LMAO, you're really full of yourself aren't you? I made several statements already regarding the game tonight. You're a hater, I'm used to people like you....but it's fun to point out ignorance when you're trying to talk down to the rest of us. I even congratulated the Nuggets for their win tonight, after all, they had all summer to think about this one! Thanks for playing!

So what if we lost by 30. We are missing our 2nd best player on a back to back, plus none of the starters played in the fourth quarter, I am sure if they had some minutes in their it would of been a lot less, maybe 15-20 pts. As for the Nuggets, it was a great win, but my question is, can you win when it really counts?

I must admit I didn't actually watch the game, but as a basketball player, losing to a team by 30 that you'll likely be seeing in the playoffs is a cause for a bit of concern. I know it probably won't count for much. The Lakers will most likely be the #1 seed and will probably make it to at least the Finals if not repeat, but they haven't actually gotten there yet. I'm just surprised Laker fans are so content with a loss like this, but if you're cool with it, I guess everything's good.

I would be much more concerned if it was a week before the playoffs instead of mid November. Nobody goes undefeated in the NBA!

Honestly even if both teams played their best in this game, the Lakers still didn't have Gasol, who impacts the game tremendously, on both ends... I'm not trying to make excuses for LA, the point is valid.

Now if this happens in the second half of the season with both teams healthy, then Lakers fans should be a bit past the worrying stage.

nuggets fans have a nerve to talk after being dismantled by us in the playoffs for the last 2 yrs. I think they all know when it comes to the playoffs. THEY CAN'T BEAT US. honestly this game was no big deal. I feel bad for Carmello because as long as he plays for the nuggets he won't win a ring

Dude, 2 of L.A.'s 4 wins last playoffs were off pretty damn lucky steals off badly executed inbounds plays. It could easily have gone the other way.

The Lakers will get them next time they meet, it's one loss, it happens through the course of an 82 game season.

Yea it could have gone the other way, but it didn't, remember its not like we were down when we got those steals. who is to say that denver would have scored. The fact is you indeed lost and got embarrassed on your home court in game 6. Lets talk when your team actually manages to win a series against us.
