The numbers pointed toward a Denver win, and win they did. The Nuggets led by 3 after one, 3 at the half, 10 after three, and won by 12, outworking the Lakers, who seemed more mentally out of it than physically.
The Lakers' offense did some nice things, posting 114 points on 49% shooting and 38% threes, but Denver grabbed 20 offensive boards and also hit 12 of 22 threes. Simply great shooting (especially from Corey Brewer) and great penetration from Ty Lawson coupled with atrocious defense by LA. Wide open shooters is a bad sign, and there were plenty of them facing LA's D tonight. When LA did force a miss, they failed to protect the paint and secure rebounds. Kenneth Faried grabbed 9 of the 20 offensive boards for Denver, while LA totaled just 11.
Denver moves to 16-14, and their home record is 9-1. The Lakers fall back below .500.
Game Hero: Steve Nash was excellent (15 points on 8 shots, 8 assists, 2 turnovers), but he really needs to be a bit more assertive. Kobe hit 13 of 24 FGs, dropping 40 points along with 6 assists and 4 boards. He gets the nod.
