Game 2 is set for Tuesday night.

The Denver Nuggets were down by 13 points to the Los Angeles Lakers after the first quarter in Game 1 and they were never able to recover. The Nuggets were bothered by LA's size in the paint -- the Lakers blocked 15 shots -- and made just 36.8% of their two-point attempts.

So there are some adjustments for George Karl and the Nuggets to make as they ready for Tuesday night's Game 2. They'll need a better effort from guards Arron Afflalo and Ty Lawson, who were a combined 6-22 from the field on Sunday.

Game Date & Time: Tuesday, May 1, 8:30 p.m. MT
