    The Denver Nuggets defeated the Los Angeles Lakers 106-103 at the Staples Center on Thursday night.  The series is now tied at 1, and the 2 teams will face off again on Saturday night at the Pepsi Center in Denver.

    Carmelo Anthony led the way for the Nuggets with 34 points and 9 rebounds.  Chauncey Billups scored 27 points in 43 minutes.

    Kobe Bryant led the Lakers with 32 points, while Pau Gasol scored 17 points and grabbed 17 rebounds.  Lamar Odom had a solid night in a reserve role – 10 points and 9 rebounds in just 29 minutes – but it wasn’t enough.  Holding the ball with the final shot down by 3 points, Head Coach Phil Jackson opted to keep the ball out of his star’s hands.  Instead of going to Kobe – whom Jackson felt would get fouled by the Nuggets to force 2 free throws – Jackson drew up a play for point guard Derek Fisher who missed a 3-point shot that would have tied the game.

    This is shaping up to be a great series out west.  The Lakers will need to find a way to win at least 1 game in Denver if they don’t want to face an almost unsurmountable 3-1 deficit.  We’ll keep you posted…
