A series doesn't start til someone loses at home. We're in the driver's seat NOW... but we need to take these two games at home to win the series.

IMO, Game 3 is more dire than Game 4. You need to win the first one. And the second, for that matter. You can't go back to Denver for Game 5 in an even series; this thing needs to go 3-1 before I declare us winners.

Let's see if Jackson sticks with the small ball lineup, or screws with Karl even further by going large. You definitely wanna run at home, so I'd be surprised if he altered the starters.

I'd like to see AB get some run in the 1st half to see if he does what he does best and crashes the boards a little. If he can give us some energy and rebounds, as well as fouling hard and proper when needed, he should get at least ten minutes. That would allow Ezeli to play alongside Bogut for some five minutes which could show how lethal defensively and rebounding those two can be in very small spurts. I think Denver's bigs are rather weak offensively and not great defensively either, so Bogut should not only score more, Ezeli should as well, off putbacks and dunks off passes close to the basket.

Going with the smaller lineup is the way to go, but if the shooting isn't that great, getting energisers like Landry and Ezeli in after some six minutes could be the way to go. The defense inside, not allowing putbacks by them, as well as deep penetration by their guards, is huge. Denver really is more transition and taking it to the basket than anything else. Defend them properly close to the basket and force them to shoot from the outside and you limit them alot.

There's no question about it, Oracle will be ROCKING tomorrow! It will be just as loud as the We Believe year, mark my words.. Denver doesn't know what they're getting into.

Haven't been able to make it to a game this season, but I haddddd to splurge and clear my work schedule for this one! Can't wait to go nuts with the rest of oracle!
I have seen the 49ers win a Superbowl. I have now seen the Giants win a world series. I need one more championship in my lifetime to make my life complete...

But, Blackfoot, if you subtract Lawson's worst month and a half out of the season, it becomes way more comparable!!! :mrgreen: :roll:

Did you see me send that sh*t back and how upset they get at a dose of reality?

Yeah. They were acting like ****ing pricks to you. I decided I wasn't even going to post when they called you a troll.

That Nuggets forum is god awful. One of the most biased I have seen.
