Yea but I can gaurantee the Lakers are a little frightened. This game was closer than the score says. We were in it the whole time, and they know that in the playoffs they are not getting all those calls. If maybe Lakers didnt get 2 or 3 of those calls, Denver wins this game.

Hard to watch last night, but Smith was alright. He's just got to get a great look before just throwing it up. Melo did good and Nene was spectacular. Tonight Lakers play Portland in Portland. We need to pray that Portland falls, it'll give us a better chance to clinch the Division... If Portland loses and we beat Sac. in Denver on Monday, we've got it wrapped up.

If Portland loses tonight we win division. And if we win Tuesday and a one houston loss and we clinch 2 seed. Which seems where we want to be bc looks like that what Dallas is gonna get. But that scares me bc dirk could eat us alive. :sad:

Lakers can rot and die for all i care, they are purposely tanking this game last minute and a half of the game against portland and only down 3 and all of their shots were from 3pt range. Wow, talk about a tank job. With that said portland played well, but im not gonna look too much into it. To win 3 of their starters had to play 35+ minutes, they wont be able to do that in the playoffs. Looks like nuggs will win monday, and might get the 2 seed. But it looks like we will be the 3 seed in reality.

We play Portland Wednesday.. We play Sacramento Monday. Portland plays Clippers tonight, Oklahoma on Monday and us on Wednesday. Portland is currently 1 1/2 games behind. If they win tonight, they'll be one game behind, then if they beat Oklahoma they'll be a half game behind. Say we win Monday and so does Portland, it will go down to a battle on Wednesday. It'll be a must win do or die. Win and You get the Division and 2 seed. Lose and you fall. Portland must lose tonight and or Monday. I don't think we can beat Portland in Portland... that place is harder to win in then it is in LA.

If Denver wins tonight they clinch the Northwest division due to tiebreakers. Even if Portland were to beat Denver and have the same record at season's end Denver would be the champ because they ahve the better Division record.

Dont be so sure bout that. Rockies have a great lineup even without Holliday. If they can shore up the bullpen, there is a really good chance they make the playoffs at the worst.

As for nuggets, they need to step it up tonight. All other teams have been playing at high intensity. Even though nuggs have won 13 of 14 i havent seen the same intensity from them as other teams have shown.

Well Nuggs dont need to win. We got 2 seed Dallas just won. Just gotta wait and see the final of the Spurs hornets game to see who we play. They just went into OT. I dont mind playing either. Each has a player that worries me. With Dirk on Dallas and Paul on the Hornets. Hornets scare me less bc Chauncey can shut down Paul. No one is big enough to stop Dirk on our team.

Paul scares me more than Dirk, because he's a complete point guard that can set things up for teammates when he's not scoring himself. Dirk isn't a mauling force inside, he's more of a jump-shooting big man, so if you contest his shots you can keep him in check. You can't shut him down because he does make really tough shots all the time.

Well, comparing the Broncos and Nuggets isn't really a good thing then.
The Broncos were part of one of the biggest choke jobs in NFL history, are you saying the Nuggets aren't much different? A big part of winning Championships is having heart and going out there night in and night out and proving it. If the Nuggets are just going to take nights off when they know they have something wrapped up, that shows a lack of leadership and desire. Hasn't Carmelo been in the league the same amount of years as Dwayne Wade and Lebron James? Two leaders. Carmelo simply isn't, not even close.

See the Lakers, they've had the West locked up for a while and didn't decide to just go to sleep.

Who honestly goes on ESPN and loses by like 40 and expects anyone to take them seriously?
Even if you just cruise along, make it interesting.

Your teams biggest problem is they're softer than a pillow.

The Nuggets were within 7 points late in the 3rd. Their starters barely saw the floor in the 4th quarter. The Nuggets had nothing to gain by leaving The starters out their trying to win a meaningless game. If one of them got hurt, George Karl would be getting chewed up by the fans here in Denver.

Since they clinched they put it in cruise control. I'm not worried.


Gasol doesn't dominate Nene. The only thing that Gaol is good for is running the pick and roll with Kobe. He isn't going to post up Nene and back him down.

Sorry, New Orleans is still going to beat you guys, EAZY.

4-2 HORNETSSSS.

Gasol runs the pick and roll as good as anyone in the league, but his game is completely different when he plays Denver. He suddenly becomes a rebounder and isn't as afraid to take it to the basket. Maybe Nene isn't the big bad center he's made out to be. The goons on the Clippers give Gasol a rougher time.

CB7 aka Mr Big Shot > CP3


:coffee:

Well not sure bout that. gotta give it up to CP3 he is nasty. But Billups has the most ability out of any of the PG's in the playoffs to stop him.

Melo: Apply pressure
In word and deed, Anthony seems ready for his mission
By Benjamin Hochman
The Denver Post
Posted: 04/19/2009 12:30:00 AM MDT
Updated: 04/19/2009 02:06:31 AM MDT

Rosewood Crescent Hotel in Dallas is one of those impossibly opulent spots six stars, if you will with a 22,000-square-foot spa, a high-end sushi restaurant and two-story suites. On March 26, the day after a game at New Orleans, the Nuggets' starters had a day off at the posh hotel, but the reserves had practice at Southern Methodist University.

After the team bus pulled up at SMU, the usual suspects walked off Renaldo Balkman, Johan Petro, Steven Hunter but then, like a star cameo in a movie, out popped Carmelo Anthony.

"It just lifted everybody," assistant coach Chad Iske said of Anthony's presence. "It turned into a great workout one of our best practices and one of our best days, because he made a great leadership move on his part. All the younger guys and the guys on the bench saw that, and it's a positive thing for them to see.

"When your best player is working hard, your other players have to follow suit."

Anthony begins his sixth postseason today against the No. 7-seeded Hornets, and everyone around him says he's never been more focused. Days like the one in Dallas show Anthony's dedication (sure enough, he scored a season-high 43 against the Mavericks). No, he's not yet a Chauncey Billups-type leader, but he's clearly the most mature Melo since he showed up in Denver in 2003.

"I'm on a mission I'm on a mission, man," said Anthony, who has lost in the first round five consecutive postseasons. "I'm sick of just being in the first round. That's the only thing I've been thinking about. This series, I'm on a mission."

One year ago this week, the No. 8-seeded Nuggets began a series at the No. 1 Lakers, where some rowdy Staples Centers staples chanted "D-U-I! D-U-I!" The series was a debacle. Denver lost all four games by an average of 13.3 points. Anthony, arrested the previous week, had averaged 25.7 points in the regular season and shot 49.2 percent from the field, but in the playoffs he averaged 22.5 and shot just 36.4 percent.

Many of his teammates refused to talk to the media, but after Game 3, Anthony did, famously/infamously proclaiming: "We quit. Everybody, from the coaches to the players. And I said it. And I'm not pointing the fingers at anybody, because we all sucked. I didn't play worth a (expletive) tonight."

"We Quit" was headline news. About a year later, after the No. 2-seeded Nuggets practiced Saturday, Anthony was asked about his attitude for this postseason.

"Apply pressure," he said. "That's my slogan. Make that a headline."

New accent: passing

A proactive Anthony means an active Anthony.

"Obviously, Carmelo's going to be your main focus when you're playing this team," Hornets coach Byron Scott said Saturday, "because he can score in so many different ways on you."

Anthony is at his best when he can produce in transition, but sometimes the pace of a playoff game is more, say, Billups than Chris Paul. Denver needs Anthony to thrive in different spots, be it in a post-up setup, on the perimeter or slashing to the basket, like he does so well, so often (whether or not he gets the foul call).

But here's the catch: In order for Anthony and the Nuggets to succeed in this series, he must be a factor with the pass, too. Denver's not trying to turn him into a pass-first player, but as Anthony admitted, unselfishness is a key facet to this offense.

Even if it's not getting the assist, sometimes that pass before the assist pass is just as important, because it zips the ball from one side to the other and, especially in Anthony's case, it draws the defender on the Nuggets' star, opening a lane for a teammate.

"I think Melo is huge in that situation, because he's the guy who's going to see the most double teams, he's going to see the best defender James Posey's going to be on him a lot of minutes," Nuggets coach George Karl said. "He's got to stay away from the tricks and the little Posey antics that create your frustration."

And on the other end of the floor, "He's defending more," said Kenyon Martin, Denver's top defender.

Upgrade on defense

Before the season began, Anthony opened up about the mental toughness that comes with being a tough defender. He said in games against lesser teams, sometimes you have to play mind games to get yourself defending as if the matchup was, say, in the Olympic gold medal game.

And while there were a few blips against bad teams this season, Denver didn't let up too often against teams under .500 31-6, with none of the losses at the Pepsi Center. And while Denver's overall defense drastically improved with newcomers Billups, Chris Andersen and Dahntay Jones, Anthony's defensive upgrade has been significant, considering he used to be really bad.

"The team sees me doing that and everybody feeds off of that," Anthony said. "At times this season, we've played the best defense we've ever played."

"He's determined now," Martin said. "People have been putting him in the same category that Kevin Garnett was in and Tracy McGrady. I don't think he wants to be affiliated with that too much longer."

Until last season, Garnett had been to the playoffs eight times, losing seven times in the first round. McGrady is 0-for-7. Both guys were perennial all-stars, but people don't remember all-star teams they remember championship teams.

Anthony and Karl have had their run-ins over the years, and they even had a bump-in-the-road this season, in that game at Indiana, when Anthony refused to go to the bench. But the two are on pretty good terms now and, whether it's fair or not, are linked in this recent era of Nuggets history. Karl, who was hired in January 2005, has lost in the first round the past four seasons.

"I'm sure (Anthony) is aware of the target being on him and me," Karl said. "And I told him the other day that's kind of fun."

Asked the same thing, and sure enough, Anthony said the same thing: "There's a lot of pressure, man. But pressure is fun. This is the best unit I've been on since I've been here.

"It's my time to shine. It's our time to shine. This is our year I think we can go pretty far."

I can't decide if I should hope the Nuggets play with a sense of urgency, or they they just play an even-keeled game.

I think I'm going with urgency. I love my Nuggets, but when they try to slow the game down the team as a whole becomes very complacent and lazy.

anyone else happpy with all the road wins yesterday?

I think those three road wins will reallly get the Nuggets focused and very business like as they prepare for today's game.

Nuggs will roll the Hornets. All they have to do is limit CP3 and West their is nothing else the hornets can consistently throw at the Nuggets. Peja will become such a defensive liability with Melo destroying with the jumpers and back his sorry ass down into the paint.

Chandler is still hurt. Rasual Butler...please....

Hornets have no bench and are a gimpy. Hornets have no one that can contain Smith off the bench and if Kleiza continues his good shooting ( from towards the end of the season) plus the Birdman flying all over the court. The Nugget bench will dominate the Hornets. I could also see Balkman contributing if called upon

Nuggets pose so many matchup difficulties for the Hornets. This series should be over in 5 maybe 6 in favor of the Nuggets.

Tonight we must play strong at home... The recent road wins by playoff teams yesterday has really gave me an itch. We need to not play sloppy in the first quarter... George Karl last week did mention that we are a stronger road team because we play smart first off and at home we mess around. We must put on our game faces and have great play from Kleiza, Nene, Melo, JR, Chauncey, Balkman, and Birdman...

Please don't put Petro in tonight.

Melo is far from overrated, he's a great player that is clutch when you need him. I think we'll give the Lakers a run if we play them, but that run might be getting swept with every game pretty close. Anyway, the Lakers are the team to beat in the West, but the Cavs are better.

I agree, if Birdman and Smith light it up we're a scary team, but I also think Karl needs to play Balkman more. He's done very well defending guards, and if he can do a (relatively) good job of guarding Paul, we could us him like the Celtics used Posey in the finals last year. That would be very good since almost every Western playoff team has a good, if not great, guard. Parker, Kidd, Paul, Bryant, etc.

That's his biggest problem though, he's never been clutch in the playoffs, when you need him to be. Last night his 13 points didn't really matter because Chauncey and the rest of the team played really well. There's bound to be a night though, regardless of what round, that Carmelo is going to have to prove he could win a game, maybe a few, by himself the way Lebron, Kobe, Dwayne, Chauncey etc etc, all do.

He scored a few critical points, and had a couple of rebounds when the game was still close.

I wouldn't call Carmelo overrated, but he definitely will have a different role this year in the playoffs. He's doesn't HAVE to carry the team now.

Melo will be fine. He just needs to let the game come to him. He's not at the level right now to take his whenever he wants it. The thing about Melo, is he can impact the game in a multitude of ways. He can help his team win w/o scoring. Right now he should let his offense come to him. That will help him get into a rhythm, and when he's in a rhythm he pretty dynamic. Melo is a beast in waiting.

Billups Comes Up Big In Playoff Opener By Jeremy Wagner | TrueHoop Network
When he introduced Chauncey Billups earlier this season, George Karl proclaimed, "Our next step has been to win in the playoffs, and anybody who has been in the Eastern Conference championships six years in a row knows how to win in the playoffs."

On a night when the Nuggets clearly came out tight to start the game, Billups showed them how to win. He was the only Nugget unfazed by the pressure. During the first quarter, Billups shot 5-for-6 while the rest of the Denver players were 2-for-12.

As the game wore on, Billups' play allowed the other Nuggets to relax, and that led to an offensive barrage, including a 21-0 second-half run that blew the game open.

More important than the baskets he made was his vocal leadership. Billups was constantly communicating with his teammates on the court, giving encouragement and instruction. He was teaching this perennial playoff flop how to win.

While most of the attention will be on Billups' brilliant offensive performance, the Nuggets' incredible defense should not be overlooked. Chris Paul was "held" to his season averages and Kenyon Martin absolutely dominated David West, who shot 4-for-16 and struggled to get an open look. Billups' shot will come and go, but if the Nuggets can continue to play defense like that, the rest of the West better take notice.

Jeremy Wagner's work can be found on the TrueHoop Network's Nuggets blog, Roundball Mining Company

I thought it was that guy on here... what's his name... Spyder..I thought he was the one who threw it... lol.

Melo isn't overrated. He's a leader and a damn good one. Sure he had a bad night, not everyone has a great night... Sure Lebron is good, but really he's overrated if anything at all.

Billups and Smith I hope hit not one not two but 7 3's each!

I think we'll win Wednesday and take a 2-0 lead and then the real challenge of playing good on the road will happen... Let's sweep!

Thats bc Camby is an overrated Defensive player. He never played his man he always hung back to get the block shots and rebounds. He played for stats not wins. Birdman comes out of nowhere, and is always battling his man, he is less selfish than Camby.

No he's not. He's probably one of the WORST leaders in the league, that's one of the biggest reasons Denver brought Chauncey in, because your team were a bunch of individual one on one players.

Spyder, you seem to be an intelligent basketball fan. You have to figure in Melo's position. He does not play a position of constant impact. Generally leaders come from the PG spot, maybe the SG spot if the player is super talented like Kobe or Lebron, and maybe the center but even then you have to have a floor general who knows how to get the ball down low. The Nuggets have never had that before until now. Andre Miller was decent but was easily shut down when he was a Nugget. Allen Iverson....not a floor general whatsoever...Chauncey-hell yes.

There are few teams with leaders from the small forward position.

Get off Melo's case. He didn't score well last night but he worked hard pulling down seven rebounds, 2 assists, made his free throws and a block. That shows he didn't start moping and getting frustrated. If he fails again this series then by all means call him what you will but until then he deserves better.

In previous playoff years all the other team had to do was shut down Melo. Now that is not the case any longer.

That's his biggest problem though, he's never been clutch in the playoffs, when you need him to be. Last night his 13 points didn't really matter because Chauncey and the rest of the team played really well. There's bound to be a night though, regardless of what round, that Carmelo is going to have to prove he could win a game, maybe a few, by himself the way Lebron, Kobe, Dwayne, Chauncey etc etc, all do.

It's kinda hard to score when you're sitting on the bench for most of the 4th quarter because you're up by 30 points, not to mention the fact that when the defense is focused primarily on you it makes it harder to score. Melo played fine last night, not great, but he did OK and let others(Billups and Smith mainly) reap the benefits of the Hornets' focus on him, and not getting upset about not getting the shots and the glory.

He also went on to talk about how the media blew it out of proportion and that he has no beef with Kobe. Last summers rap tape? Obviously Kobe has moved on, Shaq can't though, he wants to come back!

As far as Kobe being overrated....

Shaq has won with two of the best guards in the game, he's won nothing with the garbage he has in Phoenix right now. He actually played well this year, but it didn't really matter.

Looking back at history, very few teams have ever won anything without a dominant force in the middle. See the Celtics and Bill Russell if you want a history lesson.

If Carmelo had half the intangibles and drive Chauncey has, he'd be one of the greatest of all time.

Nuggets setting physical defensive tone in series
posted by: Dan Boniface 12 mins ago Toolbox: Read Comments Print Article Email Article Smaller Larger

DENVER (AP) - Dahntay Jones' in-your-face defensive style appears to be getting on the nerves of the New Orleans Hornets.



Still stinging over their lopsided loss to the Nuggets in Game 1, Hornets coach Byron Scott suggested Jones' heavy contact on All-Star Chris Paul crossed the line.

"I can appreciate anybody that plays hard, but when you get to the point where you're being a little dirty, that's the thing that kind of aggravates me," Scott said Tuesday. "Being that I played in this league, I know how tough that is. But when you get to the point where you're being a little dirty then I don't appreciate that - and I don't respect it."

Getting under the skin of the Hornets is all part of the plan for the Nuggets, who were determined to set an aggressive defensive tone for the series.

So far, they've succeeded in shutting down and bothering the Hornets.

"I'm not trying to be annoying, I'm just trying to put pressure on (Paul) and play hard," said Jones, whose team heads into Game 2 on Wednesday night with a 1-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. "People don't like it when you play hard, people don't like it when you're physical."

That approach served the Nuggets' Kenyon Martin and Nene well as Martin stymied David West and Nene kept Tyson Chandler in check. Also mixing it up in the lane was Chris Andersen, the "Birdman" swooping in and blocking four shots.

New Orleans should expect more of the same.

"The series is going to be a tough, long, long series and being physical is something that we've got to pride ourselves on," Chauncey Billups said.

Overlooked in Billups' 36-point scoring spree Sunday night was the aggressive nature of the Nuggets' defense, the team adopting the attitude that no basket for New Orleans would come easy.

"I'm not going out to foul nobody. I'm going out to play basketball," Martin said. "But if the situation calls for it, I'm not going to give them a layup."

The Hornets weren't exactly thrilled with some of Denver's tactics, taking particular exception to the way Jones was checking and pushing around Paul.

"I was looking at the tape, there were some cheap shots that I thought he took in there," Scott said.

Martin saw things a little differently on his copy of the video.

"Things happen when you play hard," Martin said.

Then again, Martin wouldn't want Jones covering him, either.

"He'd probably get up under my skin," Martin said. "That's what we need. That's what you want."

Jones certainly bothered Scott, who lauded Martin's work on West but wouldn't even acknowledge Jones' efforts on Paul.

"I don't give him no credit, not really," Scott said.

Jones doesn't understand the Hornets' irritation. His job is to limit Paul's production - by any means necessary within the rules.

"What Byron was talking about I don't know," Jones said. "It's the playoffs, it gets more physical on both ends."

Paul is attempting to stay above the fray and keep his emotions in check, especially on the court.

"I'm smart enough to realize if we both get ejected, or something like that, he's done his job," said Paul, who finished with 21 points on 7-of-19 shooting. "I'm more focused about what we're doing rather than what he's doing."

Although the Nuggets' swarming defensive disrupted the Hornets' pick-and-roll offense Sunday, Paul said it was more about them missing open looks than anything the Nuggets did. The team shot just 37 percent from the field, and allowed the Nuggets to blow the game open with a 21-0 run that spanned the third and fourth quarters.

"We're going to have to be aggressive, try to get to the line and get some easy baskets," Paul said.

That involves making West more of a factor, which concerns Karl.

"An All-Star has a way of bouncing back," Karl said. "They will see some things on video that they think they can exploit. The chess game has just begun."

The Nuggets' move will be to check, and check hard.

"We're going to bring the same intensity and play as hard," Jones said. "Hopefully it will turn out the same way."

Not that Denver's necessarily relying on another offensive outburst from Billups.

"We got one of our best players getting hot," Karl said. "How we win the four games are probably going to have different personalities, other than consistently being good defensively."

The Nuggets wouldn't mind seeing Anthony bounce back after being limited to just 13 points.

"I think they're trying to find some answers for our defense," Karl said. "We're trying to find some answers to give 'Melo more opportunities ... We're not going to overreact."

Anthony certainly won't. Watching from the bench in fourth quarter with the game sewn up does have its appeal.

"I'm in a great state right now - focused," Anthony said. "If I score 13 and we win by 30, I'll take that."

For confidence's sake, though, he wouldn't mind burying a couple of shots early in Game 2.

"My goal is not to come into a game and miss shots," he said, smiling. "Of course I want to make shots. It makes it easier for me, it makes it easier for everyone on my team."

However, he's realizing he doesn't have to carry the Nuggets on his shoulders alone. The offensive load can be spread around now.

"To have someone like Chauncey to step up, I'll take that on any given night," he said.



Get ready for a lot of fouls to be called on Jones. Now that the Hornets are crying CP3 is (gulp) gonna get more calls. Its sad that instead of talking about playing more and fixing something, all they can do in the playoffs is cry bc a player is being too intense.

I do agree with you on one thing though... I think he'd be excellent off the bench. I know I'm going to get bashed for that but I think he'd do better. He does great already and that's what I love about my Melo but he'd have more energy coming off the bench... But who would fill the void for the starter spot? JR could? But still Melo deserves a starting role but he'd be so much better coming off the bench..

Why doesn't Scott just come out and say "When Paul has the ball, everyone else should sit indian style on the court until he's done shooting"

Just imagine Denver's potential lineups if NBA Hang Time 09 existed.. This team can catch fire on a dime - if they establish their consistent up-tempo style on both ends of the court. This can force the opponent to abandon all hope (see also: DEN-NO gm1). If they can win these first two series in 4, 5 games a piece, they can run toe-to-toe with anyone else at the end.

Nuggets are better at EVERY position when going starting five vs. starting five. CP3 is a stud but right now he is getting worked by Chauncey and the whole Nuggets team. This series is very reminscent of past Nugget failures. All other teams had to do was frustrate and double or triple team Melo. Now the Nuggs are doing the same to the Chris Paul and they have no answer.

I loved how the Hornets thought DWest would go off. Kenyon completely overmatches him defensively.

Denver should come home 3-1 and hopefully maybe even broom time.

Let's keep a level head around here.

This series could still change VERY quickly if the team gets content and drops two on the road.

I don't think that will happen though. Chauncey will keep everyone focused. We just need to steal one in the big easy and were solid.

A sweep would just be dandy though. We don't have an '07 rockies type "streaking" team here. We got a group of solid veterans who know how to play. Some extra rest would be ideal.

P.S. Nene needs to figure out how to play playoff basketball. It just boggles my mind...he plays so timid..he is so HUGE that he can over power everyone...I dont know why he isn't...Tyson Chandler can't stop Nene....Nene is stopping Nene...

Denver's looking good. Let's hope they can sweep but at the very least just win this series. :go:

A buddy of mine here at work was saying chicken man. I said no... it's bird man. He says they are changing his nickname and I proceeded to argue with him.

He starts laughing and said yeah... with the Broncos new head coach being McD, it's Chicken Nugget.

That really made me laugh out loud. :laugh:

Funny after we dominate again, Spyder is no where to be found. We have out played our opponet better than the Lakers have. If we can get to the Western Confrence finals, it should be a good series. But the numbers of this series are inflated, becuase in the season we had trouble getting rebounds when the likes of Gasol Dirk Duncan or whoever our opponet was. But if we can keep dominating our confidence will be sky high, and you dont want to play nuggs when they got their swagger.

They are finally playing like they deserve to be there, instead of this "We are just happy to be in the playoffs" mentality. Chauncey knows what this would mean for this city. It would put Denver basketball on the map.

These games tonight are boring blow outs, Dampier is a whimp didnt follow through on his threat (i think). Hopefully Jazz can win now, i want to shut up some laker fans.

Is it just me or are the Hornets in denial?

After game CP3 said the only we reason lost we lost was because we didn't contain their runs. Uh, last I saw that is basically how a basketball game is won most of the time.

Then after game 2 Coach Byron Scott stated that the only reasons why they lost is they had some defensive lapses and they turned the ball over. Again, to me those sound like excuses when they preface a statement with the words " the only reason."

As a Nugget fan I love this mentality from the opposing team. They don't seem to get it. What they have to do is play better in all facets of the game instead of saying " the only reason...."

Also, the Hornets want to look at their series last year with San Antonio as inspiration. Yes, a series they LOST when they had home court advantage. They are trying to compare this series with the SA series in that most of the games were blowouts.

Memo to the Hornets...this is a new season. And no season is ever the same as the last.

The Hornets have clearly lost their sting. I really hope the Nuggets knock them out with a huge uppercut and send the best American Flopper into the off season soon.

Barkley said it best last night after the Jazz-Lakers series. There are pretty much 3 teams that came to play in postseason, Cavs, Lakers, and Nuggs. He said if he had to pick now it would be a Cavs-Nuggs finals bc the Cavs and Nuggs are on a mission. The Lakers are not playing with a passion or a mission, they just get complacent.

I'm right here actually and to be honest, Denver has looked better than we have so far. We got beat last night with Utah missing one of their top big guys and Kobe looked terrible out there. I don't know if he's tired or what, but he looked bad. We almost gave away the 2nd game in LA a few nights ago. I believe we'll still win this series, but we have looked far from flawless.

I was hard on Denver before, but they have looked really good and if others around Chauncey can sustain playing at a high level, I can't see why the Nuggets shouldn't be in the Western Conference Finals atleast.

Kobe said that the crowd in Utah calms him down, and makes him play better. That may be true, but he needed to be more intense last night. When Kobe goes to the rack hard, he get's to the free throw line. I feel bad for Utah in game four, because Kobe is going to be aggressive as hell.

Report Violation i really think the hornets is going all the way because chris paul is not going to tollerate lossing 3 games in the roll.Hes going to put a flame in this game and all these hornets haters owe me a hundred dollor if the hornets go all the way in these series. Go Hornets!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!

Lol wow this is from a fan on espn. Its sad hed think that. Of all the teams in the west the one team with no chance to get to the finals is the Hornets. I think it will come down to the Lakers-Nuggs, Lakers will prob get in, in like 6 or 7 games.

But to think the Hornets will go all the way is just sad.

Bear with me.

I think that the Nuggets playing as well as they are right now gives teams playing the Lakers added incentive. For instance, Utah (who plays really well at home) knows/thinks they can hang with the Nuggets.

Here is hoping that someone takes that added incentive and drops LA out of the playoffs!

I'm not a big fan of the refs either, but they seem to be calling it decently for a road game so far. I wish the nuggets would have finished off that quarter a bit stronger.

Its hard when thier playing refs and the other team. Refs just dont want it to be a blow out. When the calls started we were up 16 were now up 5.

Karl might cost us the game, he did is rotation very very bad so far. Wating till 8-9 mins left in 2nd to take chauncey out and to get JR in? The rest of this quarter could be really really bad.

It's still early. The third has been when we have been pulling away, so let's wait and see how the game looks half way through the third.

Just dont understand how Paul barely gets touched and he flops and he gets the call, but melo is getting banged around and gets nothing. Chris Paul is a disgrace. I cant stand floppers.

Game over, nuggs refuse to cut, refuse to try for anything inside. And with 5 mins to go Billups is still on the bench. Nene on the bench with 5 fouls, and the refs calling it heavily one sided. We have got a few calls, but nothing has been consistent. Gotta get ready for game 4. Will be huge.

It was unrealistic to think it'd be a sweep, but I still believe Denver will take it in 6 at most.
