Lakers-Nuggets Open Thread

LOS ANGELES, CA - MAY 08: Danilo Gallinari #8 of the Denver Nuggets goes up for a shot against Andrew Bynum #17 and Pau Gasol #16 of the Los Angeles Lakers in the second half in Game Five of the Western Conference Quarterfinals in the 2012 NBA Playoffs on May 8, 2012 at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

Win or lose, the Lakers will play again on Saturday. The NBA announced today that if the Lakers win, the second-round series against the Thunder will start in Oklahoma City on Saturday-Monday. If they lose, of course, they'll be back at Staples to face the Nuggets in Game Seven. Other news-chunks you might not've caught if you've been off the Internet: Kobe missed shootaround with gastroenteritis, and Chris Andersen's home is the target of a kiddie-porn investigation. Ick. Andersen has been excused from the team while the investigation continues.

The time for a nervous sip of alcomohol is whenever someone mentions:

  • Laptops in the huddle,
  • Michael Jordan's "flu game,"
  • How after Game Five, the Lakers' locker-room white board said to "pack for three games,"
  • The Lakers' 12-2 record in closeout games in the Pau Gasol era, or
  • Andrew Bynum getting back on defense (or not, as the case may be).

Time to go to work!
