Notebook: Nuggets 99, Lakers 84


Posted Saturday May 5, 2012 2:46AM

By Michael Kelly, for NBA.com

THE FACTS: The Denver Nuggets have been waiting for their energy to show up against the Los Angeles Lakers. It did -- at least for one game.

Ty Lawson had 25 points and seven assists, JaVale McGee came off the bench to score 16 points and grab 15 rebounds as the Nuggets beat the Lakers 99-84 in Game 3 of their Western Conference playoff series on Friday. The Lakers lead the series 2-1 with Game 4 on Sunday.

Kobe Bryant led L.A. with 22 points but shot just 7-for-23 and Andrew Bynum had 18 points, all in the second half, and had 12 rebounds.

QUOTABLE: "The game for us is all about energy. It's not complicated for us. When we play poorly we don't play with enough energy and we don't push the pace and we take too many jump shots."
-- Nuggets coach George Karl

THE STAT: Despite the Lakers' size advantage up front, Denver outrebounded them 54-44. McGee and Kenneth Faried had 15 rebounds apiece to set the tone for the Nuggets.

TURNING POINT: Denver led by 24 early and 16 at intermission but got away from its game after halftime. The Nuggets settled for jumpers for most of the third quarter, before returning to attacking the paint in the fourth. Guard Andre Miller fed Faried for a dunk and then Corey Brewer fed Miller for a fast-break layup that gave Denver an 80-69 lead with 8:58 left.

QUOTABLE II: "I liked the way we climbed back into the game but we just couldn't get over the hump."
-- Bryant, on his team cutting the deficit to four in the third quarter.

HOT: Lawson was scorching late in the first quarter. He scored 13 of the Nuggets final 18 points of the period, including nine in an 11-0 run that gave Denver a 30-14 lead heading into the second.

QUOTABLE III: "I would have liked to have us to come out with a lot more energy. Ty Lawson had his way with us early on. We did a decent job on him in this series so far so to see him get loose early was disappointing."
-- Lakers coach Mike Brown.

HOT II: Bynum was held scoreless in the first half on 0-for-3 shooting but came alive in the third. He scored 12 points in the period, including two three-point plays and was a big reason the Lakers got within four at one point.

NOT: Danilo Gallinari continues to struggle with his shot. He came into Friday shooting 37.5 percent (12-for-32) in the series and went 3-for-11 from the field. He finished with 13 points thanks to hitting seven free throws but he looked tentative when looking for his shot.

GOOD MOVE: The Nuggets made a conscious effort to stop Bynum in the first half. They collapsed on him in the when he got the ball down low, forcing him into a contested shot or to give it up.

BAD MOVE: McGee showed he should play the post and not point guard. After wrestling the ball away from Bynum the 7-footer dribbled up court and tried to take it all the way to the hole but lost control of the ball. His play the rest of the game overshadowed this one possession.

ROOKIE WATCH: Faried looked a little too eager in the opening minutes. He took five shots early, including two ill-advised jumpers, but he settled down to give the Nuggets the energy they needed.

QUOTABLE IV: "He has a lot of talent and he has a lot of potential, and he showed it today. He's a big-time player and I hope he can do it the rest of the series. Kenneth, he has a motor that doesn't stop. He's undersized, he plays hard and that's what makes up for his size."
-- Lawson, on McGee and Faried.

NOTABLE: Al Harrington suffered a fractured nose when Bynum came down with a rebound late in the third quarter. On Denver's ensuing possession Harrington walked to the bench but play continued with the Nuggets short a player. They scored to go up 70-64. Harrington left the game and did not return. His status for Sunday is unknown. ... The Lakers shot just 6-for-25 from 3-point range and 37 percent overall.

UP NEXT: Game 4 Sunday at 9:30 ET in Denver.
