The Lakers will face Denver in the first round
By Brian Kamenetzky
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)
