Tonight in Denver, in a game where the home team got little from their best player, the Nuggets more or less ran the Lakers out of the building, because the Lakers are just that gutless, and didn't need the game, or much want it.

That may sound harsh, or dismissive of a great night for Kenyon Martin, Nene and Chris Anderson, but having seen this Lakers team do the same thing a few weeks ago in Houston...

well, ask any Lakers Fan, and he'll tell you I'm not wrong.

(He'll also tell you that Kobe isn't a blight on the face of humanity, so don't believe everything he says...)And now, the micro-blog; there will also be Final Thoughts after the minutaie.

I missed the first half of this game due to family obligations, which means I miss Carmelo Anthony's 1-for-11 half, as well as his early exit with an ankle problem.

Despite the terrible work from their best player, the home team was still up 7, mostly due to J.R.

Smith, Birdman Anderson and Kenyon Martin -- in other words, three sources that aren't likely to hold up in crunch time.

Despite shooting 38% in the first half, and getting an incredible load of nothing from their bench -- 3 points on 1 of 8 shooting in 38 minutes from six players, including Lamar Odom -- the Lake Show was just down seven at the half.

I didn't see the half, but I can't imagine Nugget Fan is geeling all that great about their chances right now, and if Anthony is incapacitated, that would make the second straight series in which the Lakers have seen their opponent lose their best player due to injury.The second half began with listless Nugget play and an old-school Gasol three.

Anthony got away with a walk en route to a layup, and the Nuggets defense picked up with a steal.

The Lemur told us that Anthony had an IV and a re-tape on the ankle, neither of which helped his three-pointer go down; he doesn't look right to me.

Anthony then made a great hustle play to start a break; Nene made a nice pass to close that.

Ariza's wide open three stopped the bleeding and made it five; Billups whiffed on the answer.

Gasol made an easy hook, and after a miss, Fisher's three hit every part of the rim and stayed out; the trip back gets Nene to the rim after a Melo drive and miss to push the lead back to four.

Ariza was denied at the rim by good Nugget big work, and Billups then makes a classic drive to blow past Odom and create contact on Gasol for the old-school three.

Seven point game again, which means the first four minutes of the second were even.Single Page�1234�This article is also featured on Five Tool Tool
