Lakers Playoff Opponent Decided

On the last day of the season, the Dever Nuggets slid by the Dallas Mavericks to clinch the number six playoff spot. Laker fans will be a little disapointed by that because they will not be able to see the Lakers get their revenge on Dallas. The Mavericks swept the Lakers out of the second round of the playoffs last year.
There was talk that the Nuggets were pulling to face the Lakers because they felt they had a better chance against them rather than the Spurs. Well they got their wish. The Nuggets are a team with some depth but wont be able to match the Lakers size. They also dont have a superstar wing player which means the absense of Metta World Peace's defense wont hurt as bad.
Game 1 will be on Sunday at 3:30 EST from Staples center.

Spin: The Lakers went 3-1 against the Nuggets this season. I think Bynum and Gasol will be able to dominate the series. The Lakers MUST play good team defense. My prediction - Lakers in 5.
