Since Kobe is out, who will carry the load and bring home the victory?
I'm not a Nugget fan but do think GK is a good coach and I have to assume he will look to pack the paint to limt PG & AB points in the paint. Ramon had a good shooting night against the NOH which was too close for comfort, can he repeat against the nuggets? Does anyone think MWP will go off for 26pts like the Spurs game? Steve Blake seems to have had a good game against the NOH as well, dont recall how well or not so well he played against the Spurs, does he hold the key?
As the playoff race winds down, assuming Kobe will play against the Mav's with I'm sure revenge on his mind, the remaining schedule looks pretty tough. 2 games that should be no brainers but the other five that can blow up in our face. We have not matched up well with OKC, which begs the question how the clipps have beaten them twice. I think that we caught the Spurs on a really off night combined with some really career type games for MWP & AB. Realistically, we could go 3-4 in the final 7. Or worse, 2-5
With Memphis breathing down our necks and the clipps starting to play pretty good, what are the chances we slip to 5 and play Memphis in the first round minus HCA?
