The Denver Nuggets are trying to snap a two-game losing streak, and so far so good on Sunday night, as the team leads the Los Angeles Lakers, 47-36 at halftime. Unofficially, the Lakers shot just 32.4% from the field in the first half, including a 1-10 effort from beyond the arc. Kobe Bryant hit just one of his 10 field goal attempts and scored just three points in 18 minutes of playing time. Needless to say, that's going to have to change for the Lakers to get back in this game.
The Nuggets shot the ball better overall, but they also had major problems with long-range shooting (0-9 on three-point attempts). Ty Lawson and Al Harrington are in double figures for Denver, with 10 points apiece. Chris Andersen scored eight points and grabbed seven rebounds.
