Denver has a ton of hustle players. So if the Lakers are lazy they will get beat. Karl will try to run on every Kobe and Gasol miss. Aflalo, Chandler, and Galo can make it hard on Kobe.
The Nuggs have been open about "wanting the Lakers" in round one -- saying the last couple of days that they are fighting hard for the 6th seed and think they can surprise everyone and beat the lakers.
