Nuggets played extremely physical ball, and managed to go the entire quarter without being in the penalty. I'm trying really hard to bite my tongue about the officiating.
Kobe's technical was NOT smart. The Lakers have done some good things, but they need to do better if they want to win this game.
And that's the thing: I'm not convinced they're really feeling the urgency of the need to win this game. I mean, how can they not, right? But I just don't feel like they do. Is it just me?
Lakers need to get something going inside, in the 4th quarter. 2-point deficit is nothing. Bring the intensity in the 4th, and this will be a win.
