After letting game 1 slip away from them, Denver needed a win to get away from a possible 2-0 hole going into Denver. The Lakers started off the game strong and looked like the game could have been over in the first quarter. Denver came back with 14-2 towards the end of halftime to only be down 1 point at the half. The Lakers were not able to contain Carmelo Anthony or Chauncey Billups as Denver was able to win a close one last night 106-103. The series is now tied and headed to Denver for game 3.
