Nuggets vs Lakers Free Pick May 12, 2012

May 11, 2012

The first round best of seven series between the Los Angeles Lakers and Denver Nuggets will end May 12 in Los Angeles. The two teams meet for game seven in the Staples Center, with the winner moving on to the second round and the loser going home for the summer.

In game six, the Denver Nuggets dominated from the start and won 113-96 in Denver. Ty Lawson who scored 32 points, grabbed five rebounds and dished off six assists led the Nuggets. The Lakers were led in scoring by Kobe Bryant who was ill with a stomach virus, but scored 31 points.

Los Angeles has now lost two straight after leading the series 3-1. Andrew Bynum pulled down 16 boards for the Lakers but missed 6 of 9 shots from close range. The Nuggets in game six played exceptionally well on the perimeter. Denver shot 57% from beyond 20 feet, making 16 of their 28 shots from that range.

Denver needs just one more win to knock Bryant and his teammates out of the playoffs. Along with the fine play of Lawson, the Nuggets were helped by 18 points from Corey Brewer. Bryant scored 31 over three plus quarters. He was sick most of the day prior to the game, could not attend the team shoot around and had to take fluids intravenously all day.

His teammates failed to help him as Bynum only managed 11 points and Pau Gasol, the team’s second leading scorer missed 9 of his 10 shots and scored just three points and grabbed only three rebounds.

The line for the seventh and final game opened with the Lakers as the favorite at home by 5 ½ points and remains at that amount. The total is at 198. Look for a healthy Bryant to come back big in this game, along with his teammates. Take the Lakers less the points and the total to end OVER.
