Alright folks my recap of round 2 will come later let me give you my quick preview of this round.
The Lakers draw a Nuggets team that is playing red hot basketball and also a well rested Nuggets team. Their is little question the Nuggets are going to give us a challenge. However I think the Lakers match up better to these guys then the Rockets series. Certainly the Lakers prefer to play Denver's style of ball versus Houston's slow methodical ball. I think the key to this series will be the Lakers taking care of business at home the first two games. They absolutely need to hold home court in the first two and if they can I think they set themselves up for a potentially shorter series then people might think. If the Lakers can win the first two at home I think they can and will finish this series in 5. The one advantage we have in this series is Kobe Bryant has nobody to defend him. Their is no Shane Battier or Ron Artest on the Nuggets and I think this is definitely to our advantage. We absolutely need Andrew Bynum to continue to play well if we are going to have any chance at finishing this series early if he has his hit or miss performances we very well are in store for a 6 or 7 game series.
Prediction: I predict the Lakers will win it in 6 I think they will split the first two at home split the two in Denver. Come home in the key game 5 and win it like they have done so many times in the past when a series is tied then take the game 6 in Denver.
