Nuggets have their sights set tonight on a hot Lakers team who is hoping to get good enough to be mediocre. If the Nuggets win tonight, you can be sure that ESPN's highlights will show 90% Lakers 10% Nuggets.
The Lakers come to town. The only team that can bring a more annoying fanbase to Pepsi Center than the Boston Celtics. A team the Nuggets fans love to hate. A team that features a player who Mark Cuban passively suggested could be amnestied by the Lakers.
Yes, it's THEM. Come loud and proud to the Pepsi Center tonight folks. Brave the foot of snow in your driveway and come downtown in your best Nuggets gear. Let's also hope that Danilo Gallinari is healthy enough to play like his normal self tonight ... and that we won't get 5 chucked threes by Corey Brewer.
