The Los Angeles Lakers and the Denver Nuggets are playing close up on one another, but the home team has managed to take a six point lead into halftime. Denver has been shooting well from the field and they've managed to get the shots they've wanted against the Lakers, and despite not hitting any three point shots they've shot 51% from the field. Danilo Gallinari scored 12 points and Andre Miller put up 11 points to lead Denver. Kenneth Faried, Timofey Mogzov and Ty Lawson provided six points in support.
Kobe Bryant leads the Lakers with 12 points, but has needed 13 shots to get that total. Andrew Bynum has 11 points on a more efficient 5-6 shooting, and Pau Gasol and Ramon Sessions each have seven points, but the Lakers are falling behind on the scoring pace, shooting only 44% from the field.
Here are some highlights. Al Harrington tossed away his mask after it sort of lost form.
Kobe used some amazing footwork to score an incredible bucket.
And a woman walked onto the court. Wait, what?
