Here's a thread for everyone watching playoffs tonight. Celtics Vs. Hawks and Sixers Vs. Bulls have already tipped off. Our beloved Lakers are playing the Nuggets at 7:30. We'll see if Denver puts up more of a fight tonight. In particular, against a team that has traditionally struggled to contain quick point guards, Ty Lawson sure was invisible on Sunday. There's no way the Nuggets can compete in this series without getting more from Lawson.
If the Nuggets can't put up more of a fight, they could do the rest of the Western Conference a favor and just get swept. That way Metta World Peach would miss the first two games of the next round.
