Notebook: Nuggets 113, Lakers 96


Posted Friday May 11, 2012 2:57AM

By Michael Kelly, for NBA.com

THE FACTS: The Denver Nuggets are proving to be anything but easy to close out.

Ty Lawson scored a playoff career-high 32 points, Corey Brewer had 18 points and the Nuggets routed the Los Angeles Lakers 113-96 on Thursday to force a Game 7 in their Western Conference quarterfinals series.

Kobe Bryant overcame a stomach ailment to score a team-high 31 points and Andrew Bynum had 11 points and 16 rebounds for the Lakers, who will get another chance to eliminate Denver.

QUOTABLE: "That's all I needed, a little bit of confidence. I hit my first shot, then I hit another and I was going to shoot until I missed."
-- Ty Lawson, on his 13-for-18 shooting night, including a 5-for-6 performance from 3-point range.

THE STAT: One player. That would be Metta World Peace, who will return from his seven-game suspension to play in Game 7 on Saturday night. World Peace is the team's best defender and can stretch the defense, and his presence might be the boost the Lakers need.

TURNING POINT: The Nuggets scored the first 13 points of the game, led by 15 late in the first quarter before the Lakers pulled within four late in the second. They never grabbed the lead.

TURNING POINT II: Any thoughts of a comeback by L.A. ended in the first few minutes of the third quarter. Denver led by nine at halftime and scored the first nine of the third quarter to go up 18. The Lakers never made it a game after that.

QUOTABLE II: "My [hotel] room resembled a scene from The Exorcist."
-- Kobe Bryant.

HOT: Lawson came out on fire. He hit five of his first six shots and his first four 3-pointers. Coming into the game he was 2-for-13 from long range but changed that in a hurry. At one point he outscored the Lakers 14-13 when the Nuggets led 25-13. He then turned on the jets in the third, scoring 13 in the third quarter. His 3-pointer with 1:22 left in the period gave Denver a 90-65 lead, its biggest of the game to that point.

HOT II: Brewer was mostly silent for the first three quarters before exploding to start the fourth. He scored Denver's first 11 points of the period as the Nuggets went ahead by 28 and sent Bryant to the bench for the rest of the night.

NOT: Until late in the third quarter, it was the entire Lakers team except for Bryant. He was the only one in double figures until Ramon Sessions hit two free throws with 3:40 left in the period. Pau Gasol was a non-factor with three points and three rebounds. He was 1-for-10 from the field.

QUOTABLE III: "Kobe, being dehydrated, sick as a dog and trying to will us to a win, it's disappointing to watch him give that kind of effort and we don't get it from everybody. Our second and third best players are Drew and Pau and both those guys have to play better in order for us to win."
-- Lakers coach Mike Brown.

QUOTABLE IV: "He's one guy I can rely on, night in and night out, to compete, play hard with that sense of urgency and play with no fear," Bryant said. "It'll feel good to have him at my side."
-- Kobe Bryant, on the return of World Peace.

GOOD MOVE: Timofey Mozgov scored four points and took just four shots but his defense on Bynum was a big reason the Lakers center had just two points in the first half.

BAD MOVE: Bryant, feeling frustrated and maybe sick, drew a flagrant one for a hard foul on Faried early in the third. Bryant hit Kenneth Faried in the head and sent him to the floor, where he landed hard. Faried got up and hit both free throws.

ROOKIE WATCH: Faried took a backseat to JaVale McGee in Game 5, but he stepped up in Game 6. He finished with 15 points and 11 rebounds, and his last bucket, an alley-oop slam from Brewer, brought the roof down.

NOTABLE: Faried is averaging a double-double (11.2 points, 10 rebounds) in this series. ... The Nuggets last Game 7 was against Utah in the 1994 Western Conference semifinals. They trailed the series 3-0 before winning three straight to force the Game 7. ... Bynum has four double-doubles in this series.

QUOTABLE V: "The worst loss is [Dikembe] Mutombo beating us in Seattle, and maybe I can put one up on the board that rocks history a little bit."
-- Nuggets coach George Karl, on trying to erase the memory of losing a decisive game to Denver in 1994, when he coaches Seattle, if the Nuggets can beat the Lakers on Saturday.

UP NEXT: Game 7 Saturday at 10:30 p.m. in Los Angeles.
