Since this isn't really Nuggets related I wanted to post this over here in case you guys/girls wanted to discuss the other Western Conference series.
I stayed up well past my bedtime to finish not only the great Game 1 Rockets 100-92 win, but to also watch the goofballs in the TNT studio (Barkely, former Nugget Kenny Smith, and Webber.)
I have to applaud Yao Ming's effort last night. The big man took a knee-on-knee hit from Kobe, went down, left the game briefly, and came back not only to hit a LONG jumper - but to basically keep the Rockets from blowing the game.
Yao was all over the boards last night and had his offensive game going. Pretty sweet watching the underdog take it right to the Lakers.
Anybody get a look at Ron Artest's hair last night? Pretty good pictures of it over on The Dream Shake along with some great game recaps.
Also be sure to keep up with the Lakers SB Nation blog: Silver Screen and Roll.
