Midway through the third period, the Lakers had opened a 62-46 lead, but the 16-point deficit began to edge away as PG Ty Lawson (24 pts, 4 ast) caught fire and personally led an 8-2 Nuggets run to bring Denver within 7 points.

SG Kobe Bryant, meanwhile, has gone cold, missing on free throws and showing what may well be signs of fatigue following his earlier illness. Bryant has scored only 14 after scoring 31 and 43 point in the previous two matchups.
