Los Angeles Lakers (28-29) vs. Denver Nuggets (35-22)
The Lakers are making their run. By golly, all the bluster and promises that their season starts now -- or is it now? -- is starting to come true. Dwight Howard said he did not have his conditioning right at the beginning of the season and has begun getting more comfortable or accepting the fact that he will not feel completely comfortable this entire season with his back and shoulder injuries.
Now he is setting hard screens and looking much more aggressive on defense. That is the key for the Lakers to turn this thing around.

Dwight is still talking, maybe he should be on the elliptical or something. He has mentioned several times that he still isn’t in shape, I think everyone knows that by now, so no need to keep talking about it.

Wisconsin's Ryan Evans is the starting forward, and he's having some free throw problems. The past two seasons he's shot over 70% from the charity stripe, but has dropped to 41% this season. Pathetic to say the least. Unable to emerge from a season-long slump at the free throw line, Evans has moved to the jump shot free throw. I can honestly say that I've never...
