The first round of the playoffs is set.

By virtue of their 131-102 win over Minnesota, the Denver Nuggets have earned themselves a date with the Lakers.

The series will start Sunday at Staples. Much (much, much, much) more analysis to come, but in the meantime, feel free to hone your distaste for powder blue and athletic mountain lion mascots.

UPDATE: Here's the schedule for the first four games -

GAME 1 - @ Staples Center, 12:30 pm PT (ABC)
GAME 2 - @ Staples Center, 7:30 pm PT (FSW/TNT)
GAME 3 - @ Denver, 7:30 pm PT (KCAL/ESPN)
GAME 4 - @ Denver, 6:30 pm PT (KCAL/TNT)
