    what's crazy is even when the refs decide to screw the nuggets, denver is still on pace to shoot way more free throws (32) than the rockets shot in any game against okc. that's how bad that series was.

    This is disgusting.
    LeBron with his second obvious offensive foul, instead he got continuation and a total of 6 free points. And considering Jokic two very cheap offensive fouls this gets even more disgusting.

    LOL Kenny almost spilled the tea.

    "Lakers should be worried still. Even with all that's going on...Nuggets are still in it."

    What's going on, Kenny? o_O

    Im gonna be honest though....neither of these teams look that good. Call me a homer or whatever...but I feel like even our squad last year could beat this Lakers/Nuggets.

    Amazing how Dwight is a major figure right now against the Nuggets when he was unplayable against the Rockets. It's almost as if it pays to have versatile line ups, but what do I know.

    He's a back-up center playing 20 minutes now so people had much lower expectations for him.

    its amazing how Vogel will make a change in the lineup if he sees something working. MDA would never do that.

    *I can still whine about MDA until Rockets have a new head coach right?

    it makes sense that Vogel would use Dwight; fast rim running centers is Jokic's kryptonite.

    believe it or not, GSW with KD made GSW a little easier to guard. Their motion offense went straight into ISO ball and Rockets would rather have that then Curry and Klay running all over the place.

    Jokic might be completely negated this series. His biggest weakness is the opposing center be long and athletic.

    Capela owned Jokic whenever we had him and played Denver. Now LA gets to throw McGee, Howard and Davis at him.

    That Warriors team minus KD was a 73-win team.
