NBA Playoffs

Lakers won three of four vs Denver this year, winning 104-90/116-102 at Staples, but Nuggets are 8-2 in playoffs this spring, 2-2 on road, with losses by a hoop at both New Orleans, Dallas. Lakers had tougher series in last round, though Houston never really challenged them on road, but still, Denver has edge here in terms of rest. Adding some drama to series is fact that Colorado is where Kobe Bryant had his legal problems.

Tips and Trends

Denver Nuggets at Los Angeles Lakers


Nuggets: Denver has been off since Wednesday. "We're playing at a very good level, a very efficient offensive level," coach George Karl said. "Defensively, we have not been special. Against New Orleans we were pretty good. The Dallas series turned into an offensive game. I don't think we can win an offensive game against the Lakers. We have to win at least two games with our defense." The Nuggets have gone 1-10 against L.A. the last two seasons, including a four-game sweep in the first round of last year's playoffs. Karl hasn't won at Staples Center since taking over as Denver's coach midway through the 2004-05 season.

The Nuggets are 3-13 ATS in the last 16 meetings in Los Angeles.
The Under is 17-5 in the Nuggets' last 22 playoff games as an underdog.
   
Key Injuries - NONE

PROJECTED SCORE: 101


Lakers (-6.5, O/U 215): The Lakers advanced after an erratic, baffling semifinal series against the Rockets and will be trying to get back to the NBA finals for the second straight year. Said Pau Gasol: "I think what we went through with Houston made us grow as a team. Hopefully we'll show that." "Honestly, when we played them in Denver, the second-to-last time we played them, I told Melo, 'I'll see you in the Western Conference finals,' because I just felt like they had all the pieces there," Kobe Bryant said. "They had the depth, the toughness. They had the camaraderie. It's no surprise to me that they're here." Los Angeles won the season series 3-1.

The Lakers are 10-2 ATS in the last 12 meetings.
The Lakers are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games following a SU win.

Key Injuries - NONE
