That's the tallest order so far...

A win IN Denver... on the 2nd night of a BACK-TO-BACK... After a TOUGH game in Dallas...

Not hoping for tomorrow.


add in that DEN has only 3 losses at home thus far and Nash needs some rest for his back. But despite all that is against us, this is just another opportunity for us to rise to the challenge and get what would be a tremendous win! :jam2:

LA can do a couple of things with a win tomorrow.

1. Get to 500 finally
2. Win 4 in a row (first time this season I think)
3. Prove we are no longer the weak road team
4. Prove to each other that we can win
5. Put the league on notice that LA is back.

I believe we will make it happen.

Back to back..... a team that has speed and altitude on their side..... and we haven't exactly been decent on the road this year (or anywhere else for that matter).

For some reason I'm optimistic. Must be the vodka......

We might win this one. Especially if Dwight does not get in foul trouble. The energy is good, bench contribution is nice... who knows? I think we can win it.

2 of 3 Nuggets home loses came against Sota and the Wizards ... they definetely can lose against sub 0.50 teams at home !

Hmm. I wasn't sure if we had a winning streak over 3 games (too lazy to check when I posted) but we need to break the seal and go on a real winning streak.

In the last month, only the Spurs (11-2) and Heat (13-2) have better records than the Lakers (11-4). (via @ESPNStatsInfo)

Got to keep Faried off the boards, and Dwight's temper in check. No more flagrants and we should get this.

We haven't been above .500 all season, we NEED this. BELIEVE! :jam2:

Big part of us having to play down 12-15 for what seemed like most of the game (outside of the obvious with it being a back-to-back road game, Denver scoring 325 points in the paint and Dwight racking up 2wks worth of missed FTs in one game) was the way we went cold in the final minute of the first two quarters while giving up atleast 4 or 5 layups and dunks to end those periods.

Outside of those two short letdown stretches, its probably a one possession game for the other 46mins, because Denver couldnt stop us from scoring any more than we could stop them.....well, other than when they sent Dwight to the FT line I guess.

Yeah that game wasn't as bad as it could have been. Even when we went down by 18 and could have folded, we came back and cut it to single digits.

We just ran out of gas. Kobe hinted as much and it was fairly obvious. I'll chalk this one up to a stupid schedule.

On Thursday we need to come out and dominate the Wolves.

We're beating the bad teams. Earlier this season that is a game, maybe even a loss, but not now. Yeah, Minny sucks, big you still have to beat them, and we beat them down, just like we should.

Yeah I know we haven't beaten a real quality opponent in a little bit, but definitely we're beating the teams we should have been beating all season long.

My optimism: It looks like we've got Playoffs-Kobe going already. The man's focus is through the roof right now. He seriously hasn't looked this good since the 2010 playoffs. He looks fantastic.
