Lakers Let One Slip Away… Or Did They?

Just when you thought the Lakers were gonna run the table (sans the loss to the Heat) they go ahead and give up an easy one the Nuggets, at Staples.  The rule is this: the more you let a team hang around, the more they start believing that they can win. I’m mean, there’s no one outside Colorado that would ever pick the Nuggets over the Lakers in a 7 game series but anybody can win 1 game. This definitely hurts the Lakers chances of getting the #1 seed in the Western Conference, but is it a bad thing?  If the Lakers pass the Spurs (which at this point seems like it’s not gonna happen), they’d have to face the Thunder in a 2nd round playoff matchup and then the Spurs. We all know that the only team that scares the Lakers are the Thunder.  If the playoffs start today, the Lakers would face the Mavs in the 2nd round and either the Thunder or the Spurs. So 2nd is not such a bad thing for now.  As for the Nuggets, tell me they’re not a 10x better team without Carmelo??? I’m just saying…
