(Boulder-CO) This is just a thought that popped into my head while thinking about tonight's game and the Nuggets' chances of coming home with the series all tied up. Denver has been a team that all year long has needed to feel some kind of pressure to bring their A-game to the table.
Night-in and night-out I think we can all agree that different Nugget teams would show up depending on the situation at hand and how the previous game played out and how the two usually dictated what kind of an effort we saw.
So, with tonight's game putting a decent amount of pressure on the Nuggets, AI's fourth quarter ejection in game one and the type of game he is known for having after getting handed a tough loss, and the start of Linas Kleiza, one of our hard-er nosed players, I'm going to make the BOLD prediction the Nuggets win game two tonight! Yup, I'm going that far out on the limb. The Lakers are due to lose to the Mile High crew after beating Denver in the last four games they have faced each other and I think the pressure is starting to mount on the Nuggets which hopefully translates into a tremendously gutsy, winning, effort tonight.
Just a thought!
