The Los Angeles Lakers blew a golden opportunity to close out their first round series with the Denver Nuggets, and their reward will be a return to the Pepsi Center for Game 6 to try and close things out and avoid the dreaded Game 7. Waiting in the wings are the Oklahoma City Thunder, who have to be loving the longer this playoff series runs on.
