Lakers vs. Nuggets: WCF Game 6 Live Blog

Before the series started, I predicted Lakers in seven.  That, of course, would mean they'd lose tonight's Game 6.  But make no mistake, the prospect of having Sunday off far outweighs any gratification I'd get out of a spot-on forecast.  I'm not that proud.

And if I'm willing to end this thing early (and sacrifice self interest, because I'm a giver by nature) imagine how into the notion the Lakers might be!   It'll take a good effort, but something like what LA put forth in Game 5 might get it done.

Barney Fife loves the Lakers.

Doing great at the half, keep it up men! Do we have to p[lay Luke the second half, he's personally given the Nuggs 4 points in his short play. Where Brown instead of Farmar? Let's win it tonight! Light em up KB and guys, play like this is game 7! Yeah, on KB's drive where supposedly he got the ball stripped, do you think LeBron gets that call?! YES! We are up, but the Refs are still hurting us! Oh, cut the turnovers and execute.

The line up having Luke and Sasha together is frightening. Phil pulling out Sasha after a couple of bad plays was an outstanding move. You give Bynum short rope (Undeservingly at times), you should give Sasha a shorter leash.

If Sasha is doing good, keep him in for the 4 minute rest that Kobe gets. If not, play Kobe. And if Kobe needs rest, the second rotation guys should be:
Farmar - PG
Brown - SG
Walton - SF
Odom - PF

Denver and Houston just made our team better. The perimeter defensive duo of Battier/Artest was tough for Kobe. But his perimeter shooting was of the "Good Fellas" kind. The short tree stomp Houston front court tested our finese guys and made them do their best against a style of play that they are not used to.

Denver just made our defense better and the switch came on during the 3rd quarter "Baby Bulldog" dunk portion of the Lakers defensive run of game 5.

TA all day!
SB12 aka the Bulldog 2.0

See you guys later and one love to my fambam.

Mötley Crüe loves the Lakers!

Nuggets are a worthy opponent. Billups has really turned that team around. They'll be a competitor in future years should the team stick together--and I think that Melo will now stay seeing what his team can do.

And don't count out the Cavs yet.

That said, if the Lakers play like this every night, don't see how any team can stop them from winning it all this year. C'mon Lakers! You only have to play like this for FOUR more nights before you can go on vacation!

the Attitude beat the Altitude

Did y'all see the trophy presentation?

ICE GRILL. NO SMILES. SARCASTIC APPLAUSE. NO CHAMPAGNE.

THEY! ARE! READY!

BE AFRAID, EASTERN CONFERENCE. BE VERY AFRAID!

The Lakers have five full days to rest before the finals. That is HUGE for us. Not too long, not too short of time. Time to rest, but not get too rusty.

Wes

Thank you Lord and thank you Lakers for not disappointing us!!!

Luke Walton is my hero! He showed up, as well as, Sahsa and LO and everyone! Great job guys. Play this way in the Finals!

My Daughters BDay Wish was for a Lakers Win.

Happy Birthday

Dad Baywood

As once John DENVER sang: "Some days are diamonds, some days are stone"... so far we are still collecting diamonds... FOR THE RINGS!!!
A good day for me, a better day for being a Lakers fan!!!
4 to the glory

GO LAKERS!!!

Now it begins.

Always Be Closing.

FINALS TIME!!! BEATDOWN OF THE WEAK FAKE THUGS!! I LOVED IT!!!

Wow. Interesting stat.

How important is game one for the Lakers and Phil Jackson?

When Phil's teams have won game one of a playoff series his teams are 43-0.

Game one, Tuesday, Staples.

We must attack.

No mercy.

Wes

utzworld,

I did see the presentation of the trophy and I thought the same thing.

THEY... ARE... READY!!!

WE ARE THE LOS ANGELES LAKERS AND WE RISE!!!!

What do we play for? RINGS!!!!

Lakers Today... Lakers Tomorrow... Lakers Forever.

GO LAKERS!!!

Luke Walton Haters... BE GONE!!!!

This team has come together.

We're ready now.

WE ARE THE LOS ANGELES LAKERS AND WE RISE!!!!

What do we play for? RINGS!!!!

Lakers Today... Lakers Tomorrow... Lakers Forever.

GO LAKERS!!!

What can you say? A dominating performance tonight from start to finish. This is the team we've been waiting for.

I've thought all along that you have to be at least as good as Boston was last year to beat us in the Finals. Neither Cleveland or Orlando are that good. This year's championship is ours.

Congratulations to the Los Angeles Lakers!

You earned your trip to the finals. Now lets smash whoever comes out of the East!

Wooooooooohoooooooooo!

All I know is that we're going to REALLY need Andrew Bynum in the Finals... no matter who we play.

We've got a week to rest, coach, communicate, and soak that weak knee in Dit Da Jow.

Let's do it.

WE ARE THE LOS ANGELES LAKERS AND WE RISE!!!

What do we play for? RINGS!!!

Lakers Today... Lakers Tomorrow... Lakers Forever.

GO LAKERS!!!!

Utz,

I saw the same thing. It was so funny. It looked like a funeral.

That's great. That's great. Remember how over emotional the nuggets got after their game 2 win? Save it for when it counts.

Wes

I called it!

LA Lakers -4 games
Denver Stearns - 2 games

One heart. One love.

We're going to the finals baby!

Let's win us some rings!

This game is going to put to rest all that talk about the Nuggets being the better or tougher team.

Wes

Another thing, I thought Bynum's positioning this game was the best I've sen it all post season. He was more often than not in the right place to influence the play. He still needs to attack rebounds, but at least he was intelligently active.

Wes

And...

I really do want to face the Magic now, because I want that 1st game in Los Angeles.

I want that 1st game to be on our home ice.

We take that game oone and we're in control.

Game one is EVERYTHING.

EVERYTHING, in one game.

Game one is a Super Bowl of its own.

Lets have it in LA.

Wes

congrats, lakers and laker fans. you guys played awesome. everyone contributed tonight. everyone. this was an amazing team effort. luke was good, d-fish made some good plays, shannon brown was good, farmar played well in his short minutes, powell and mbenga provided support. phil actually coached. pau, kobe, lamar, and trevor, you guys are amazing.

job well done. get some rest. ice the knees bynum (we need you in the finals). lamar, hopefully your back will get better. pau and kobe rest up. we need all our guys to play 110%.

I didn't get to watch the game but have it recorded so will get to see them give the freaking smack down to the thuggets!!! LOVE IT!!!!!

Great job to all the Lakers and that they finally played 2 great games back to back - and became the team we've been looking for all season. Great time to peak if they can continue this trend - no team will stop us from the ring!

Looked quickly at the blog and it appeared that every Laker played great - and the great LO showed up! Awesome to hear!! Now if they can play like this from the start of game 1!!!

GO LAKERS!!!!

Well.

Approximately 2 weeks ago, I asked the question: Do the Lakers have the guts to win a title?

The evidence had mounted against them. Not only in the HOU series, but in the regular season.

Now, in 6 consecutive quarters, they may have erased the doubts.

Today, Craig Hodges said on Mason and Ireland (yes, streaming internet radio is a wonderful thing for non-LA residents) that he believed the light went on in the second half of Game 5 and it wasn't going out.

I was at peace before Game 6, uncertain how the game would turn out, hopeful the Lakers would steal it in DEN, but faithful they could win at home on Sunday if they didn't.

Man, I've never been happier to have been proven wrong.

And to top it all off, I didn't get to see the game. But I can't wait to watch the replay.

So, goodbye Melo, K-Mart, J.R. (is it still your house?) Smith, Birdman, Nene, Kleiza.

Hello, June.

I salute you, Lakers.

The march to 15 is almost complete.


weeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!


Im so happy!!!!! This is the real Lakers!!!!!


and hey, where's the HATERS???

They played a great game tonight..someone said that was the best 8 quarters of balll they have played all year. I agree.

But I already hear the overconfident predicting an easy win over Orlando/Cleveland. HOw soon they forget last year against Boston. I know..neither one of those teams have the defensive excellence that the Celtics brought to the finals last year. But Orlando IS playing a high level of D right now. And Cleveland has certainly played team basketball all year.

This is still the up and down, don't know what you will get, Lakers. The last 2 games have been very encouraging but they have fallen back into thier lacksadasical ways during the Houston series and certainly during this one. NOt to be a wet blanket, but let's rememeber how much work is left to do.

Saying that, I believe this team got over the hump . The know what it takes now. Kobe will leave everything he has on the court to win another championship. I wouldn't bet against taht happening but its not out the realim of possibility.

GO LAKERS OVER THE MAGIC I AM LAKERS FAN

GO LAKERS ALL THE WAY
