NBA Playoffs, Lakers Vs. Nuggets Game 4 Score: L.A. Up 37-36 Early

We're early in the second quarter, and it looks as if the Los Angeles Lakers and the Denver Nuggets might be involved in a tight contest in Game 4 of the Western Conference Playoffs. Neither team has really distanced themselves from the other, and both teams are shooting fairly well from the field. The Nuggets are shooting 53%, the Lakers 46%, but Los Angeles is managing to stay close thanks to their offensive rebounds (11 to six, four from Jordan Hill) and generate extra possessions.

Andrew Bynum has hit all four of his buckets, and leads Los Angeles with nine points. Kobe Bryant has struggled from the field early, shooting 3 of 9 from the field with seven points, and Pau Gasol has added seven points. Danilo Gallinari and Andre Miller have 10 points apiece for the Nuggets.

Javale McGee did manage to do this though.
