Nuggets even series 1-1!

Yeah! Nuggets even series 1-1 with a 106-103 win over the Lakers. I haven't watch the game but thanks to the official website of the NBA, I was able to look at the recap and boxscore. It was a hard-fought battle that was highlighted with 6 lead changes with 12 ties. This was the first win of the Nuggets over the Lakers during the playoffs dating from 1985, with 11 straight losses to the Lakers prior to the game.

Like Game 1 both teams were lead by their superstars. Carmelo Anthony has 34 points and 9 rebounds while Kobe Bryant has 32 points and 5 rebounds to lead Denver Nuggets and Los Angeles Lakers, respectively. Linas Kleiza also had a huge night with 16 points on 5-8 shooting, 4-7 from outside the arc.
