Something's going on with Mo.

Kendrick Nunn-itis.
Well I mean you can’t judge this team without a healthy Mo Bamba.

I think when it said and done you’re going to hear that Bamba had surgery on that ankle in the off-season and he probably resigns with the team for cheap

Lakers beat Nuggets both games at home with the vastly inferior roster earlier in the season. Win these two and series starts over as best of three with two chances to win one on the road. It's very doable.

Much better options out there in the market then hoping Bamba figures everything out as a player, Brook Lopez is seemingly gonna be sitting out there waiting to see where he ends up, I would tell Bamba good luck in his next adventure

After 2 games I am definitely thinking Reaves is better than KCP and KCP has been very good.

KCP is a better all round defender but I think they are both very good shooters and Reaves is already the much greater shot created and facilitator.

KCP is worth 15-20 mill but Reaves has earned 20+ mill with these performances. Especially considering you would think he will only get better and KCP is at the top of his game

Tomorrow and Monday... we're about to find out if this team has any DOG in them. This is the most adversity they've faced since the trading deadline. I wish some of that Miami Heat DOG would rub on them

The Lakers not only need to win Game 3, but win by double-digits. Winning by one or two possessions won't really prove anything or change the momentum or feel of this series.

Reaves is definitely better than KCP. Reaves has the best +/- on the team in this series so far.

I don’t care if they win by 1 point with Denver accidentally scoring the winning basket for us.

I just want that W and the chance to tie the series in game 4.

Just win guys. If you watch on nba.com you can watch without the broadcasters so you hear more crowd noise. I want to check that out instead of listening to JVG and Mark Jackson

If they can't win with Scott Foster, they don't deserve to be in the playoffs.

I expect AD to get hit with a few illegal defenses this one. The L2M report said they missed two on AD, so look for them to make a point there. I could see Foster paying special attention to that

If you look at the Nuggets Wolves and Suns Nuggets game 2, both road teams lost momentum in the 4th quarter with little scoring and the Nuggets offense getting on fire. The same happened to the Lakers.

Which means it is likely the altitude that is the factor in the first 2 games as the road team is exhausted by the 4th quarter so it would have been difficult to split the 1st 2 games.

But games 5 in Denver didn't have the same thing as likely by than the road team is more adjusted to the altitude (there is actually evidence it takes about a week for the body to start to adjust even if you go back to regular altitude as that is how long red blood cells (which carry oxygen) to mature).

Point is if the Lakers can hold home court, they have a better chance on the road in game 5 or even game 7 if it goes that far.
