The Denver Nuggets couldn't defend Pau Gasol in Game 1 or Kobe Bryant in Game 2.
So, what makes them think they can turn things around in their first-round playoff series against the Los Angeles Lakers?
Homecourt. It's about the only thing the Nuggets have successfully defended all season.
They rode the energy of the Pepsi Center to a 33-8 record, including a series of clutch must-win triumphs over the final six weeks that allowed them to reach the playoffs for the fifth straight season.
Game 3 is Saturday and Game 4 is Monday night.
