Lakers Late Night Replay -- Game 7 vs. Denver (plus postgame video)


The Lakers move on after a fairly epic 96-87 win over the Denver Nuggets in Saturday's Game 7 at Staples Center.

Up next, the extremely well rested Oklahoma City Thunder.

On tonight's edition of LLN, we hit on...

  • Huge, and hugely redemptive, games for Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol.

  • An excellent return from exile for Metta World Peace.

  • A very good game for Kobe Bryant, who made Denver pay for double teaming him.

  • Steve Blake filling a big void for the Lakers from the perimeter.

  • The next series. What kind of odds should the Lakers get against the Thunder?
