Notebook: Lakers 104, Nuggets 100


Posted Wednesday May 2, 2012 2:09AM

By Dan Arritt, for NBA.com

THE FACTS:
If the Lakers are hoping to make one of their patented deep playoff runs, they'll need their best three players to play at a high level. They did Tuesday night in Game 2 of their Western Conference first-round series against the Nuggets, as Kobe Bryant scored 38 points, his highest-scoring performance since Game 5 of the 2010 NBA Finals, Andrew Bynum had a playoff career-high 27 points and Pau Gasol pitched in 13 points and 10 rebounds in the 104-100 victory at Staples Center.

QUOTABLE: "They've tried to double team us randomly, picking and choosing their spots, and we made them pay."
-- Lakers coach Mike Brown

THE STAT: The Nuggets have yet to take a lead in the series.

TURNING POINT: After trailing by 13 points with just over seven minutes remaining in the game, the Nuggets made a nice push to cut the deficit to four with 3:19 left. Denver got the ball back after an offensive foul on Devin Ebanks and Ty Lawson, who scored 17 of his 25 points in the second half, had an open look at a 3-pointer but missed. The Nuggets didn't get another opportunity to cut the deficit to one possession.

HOT: Bryant made 11 of his first 14 field-goal attempts before finishing 15-for-29. It was the most field goals by Bryant since he shot 15-for-22 in Game 4 of the 2010 Western Conference finals against the Suns. Lawson rebounded from a poor Game 1 to shoot 11-for-17, including 8-for-10 in the second half.

NOT: For the second straight game, three of Denver's best scorers had off nights. In Game 1, it was Lawson, Arron Afflalo and Al Harrington who combined to shoot 10-for-36. This time it was Afflalo, Harrington and Danilo Gallinari who combined to shoot 13-for-43. If the Nuggets can get three of those top four to score near their season averages, they could still turn this series around.

GOOD MOVE: With the Lakers holding a nine-point lead and about three minutes remaining in the third quarter, Harrington caught a long pass and appeared ready to score on a breakaway dunk. But Bryant didn't give up on the play and came up from behind to block Harrington's attempt, proving the 16-year veteran still has some legs left at this point of the season.

BAD MOVE: Denver starting center Kosta Koufos had five rebounds in the first six minutes and appeared to have the energy to make things difficult on Bynum. But Denver coach George Karl decided to substitute for Koufos midway through the first quarter and that seemed to quash his rhythm, as he played only six more minutes the rest of the way and didn't record another rebound.

QUOTABLE II: "I think my team made a very big step today. I just wish it had been in Game 1."
-- Denver coach George Karl

NOTABLE: Bryant recorded at least 30 points in a playoff game for the 83rd time, second only to Michael Jordan (109) ... The Nuggets, who averaged 13.4 second-chance points during the regular season, had 18 at the half before finishing with a 26-19 advantage. They also dominated in fast-break points, outscoring the Lakers, 30-15 ... Only 14 teams have come back from an 0-2 deficit to win a best-of-seven series. The Lakers are 42-1 all-time when taking a 2-0 series lead.

UP NEXT: Game 3 on Friday in Denver.
