Lakers vs Nuggets Free Pick May 4, 2012

May 03, 2012

The Los Angeles Lakers will travel to the Mile High City to take on the Denver Nuggets in game 3 of their best of seven western conference quarterfinal series. The Lakers withstood a late Denver rally in game two to win 104-100 on May 1 to take a 2-0 series lead. The Lakers have been led this series by Kobe Bryant, who scored a game high 38 in the win Tuesday night. Los Angles in that win shot 45% from the floor, but only 13% from three-point range. At one point in the game, the Lakers were up by 19 points, but could not put the Nuggets away until the last minute of the game.

The Lakers were helped by Pau Gasol’s 13 points, 11 rebounds and 5 assists. However, it was four points in the last minute by mid season acquisition Ramon Sessions that won the game for the Lakers. Los Angeles will continue with the same in game 3, Bryant, Bryant and more Bryant. The Lakers will also try to find a way to free up Andrew Bynum. The big man for Los Angeles was double-teamed the entire night and never got on track.

The Nuggets will look to Ty Lawson to have another good game offensively. He had 25 points, 17 in the second half and will look to do the same at home. Denver will also need production from Kenneth Faried who scored 14 in the second game with 10 rebounds. Corey Brewer and Danilo Gallinari will also be key for the Nuggets. Denver needs all its players to play well offensively if they hope to win game three or any other for that matter.

The line is currently sitting with the Nuggets as 2 ½-point favorites after opening at 4. The total is at 204. Smart money takes the Lakers plus the points in this matchup with the total ending OVER.
