Notebook: Lakers 92, Nuggets 88


Posted Monday May 7, 2012 2:10AM

By Michael Kelly, for NBA.com

THE FACTS: Kobe Bryant got his points, but his biggest contribution came on a pass. Bryant scored 22 points but with the game in the balance he fed Steve Blake for an open 3-pointer with 40 seconds left that gave the Lakers a six-point lead and led them to a 92-88 win over the Denver Nuggets in Game 4 of their Western Conference quarterfinal series on Sunday.

Andrew Bynum had 19 points and Pau Gasol had 13 points, nine rebounds and six assists for the Lakers, who lead the series 3-1 heading back to Los Angeles.

Danilo Gallinari had 20 points and Andre Miller had 15 points off the bench for the Nuggets.

QUOTABLE: "He's done it for us in the past. Those moments don't scare him."
-- Bryant, on Blake's 3-pointer.

THE STAT: In Game 3 the Nuggets' tandem of JaVale McGee (16 points, 15 rebounds) and Kenneth Faried (12 points, 15 rebounds) dominated Los Angeles. The Lakers held them to a combined 14 points and 11 rebounds in Game 4.

TURNING POINT: With the game tied at 86, Gasol delivered a solid screen on Gallinari, who fell to the floor in pain. The ball swung around to Ramon Sessions, who drained a 3 to put the Lakers up for good. After an offensive goaltend on Miller, Blake drained another 3 to put the game away.

QUOTABLE II: "It was a tough pick, I just got hit on my throat, I felt a click and it clicked back. It was a tough pick, and you should expect that in the playoffs. I've got to be ready and play defense. Unfortunately they hit a big shot out of that."
-- Gallinari, on Gasol's screen.

THE STAT II: Bryant took just one free throw and missed it. Denver's starters were only 2-for-4 from the foul line.

HOT: Miller came into the game on fire. He scored 11 points in his first four minutes and went inside to get most of them. He was also aggressive on defense, helping to disrupt the rhythm of some of the Lakers guards.

NOT: The Nuggets in the first round. Denver has been to the playoffs nine straight years but is facing elimination for the eighth time. In those previous first-round exits the Nuggets have won a total of seven games.

QUOTABLE III: "Losing always gets old. Losing is not fun. I'm not unhappy with my team, I'm not happy with where we're at, but we still have a series to play. I don't think it's an impossible challenge. I've been blessed with runs in the playoffs and I think I have one or two left in me."
-- Nuggets coach George Karl

GOOD MOVE: Lakers coach Mike Brown stuck with forward Jordan Hill in the fourth quarter and he came through. After being held scoreless Friday, Hill finished with 12 points and a game-high 11 rebounds. The Lakers also slowed down Denver's running game by having their guards run back with Denver's big me, negating easy buckets, specifically McGee and Faried.

QUOTABLE IV: "They run very well, they're going to beat our bigs down the floor, so our smalls are going to have to help out or Faried and McGee are getting dunks. We just said if they throw the ball in the post, guard them. Make them shoot jumpers, don't back up and let them get to the rim."
-- Brown, on his team's transition defense

NOTABLE: A fan walked onto the court with 1:10 remaining in the first half. The woman appeared to be trying to say something to one of the players as Ty Lawson brought the ball upcourt. She was quickly escorted off the floor and out of the arena. ... The teams were both 39-for-86 from the field and finished with identical shooting percentages (45.3). ... The Lakers have never lost two straight playoff games in Denver.

UP NEXT: Game 5 Tuesday in Los Angeles.
