[pullquote]The Lakers won the game when the Nuggets missed at the final buzzer, but the real story of the game occurred during the first three quarters.
Coach Mike D’Antoni has a reputation for being guard-oriented, but tonight he ran two significant experiments with his big men, and both worked well.
The first was playing Pau Gasol and Chris Kaman together all night. Gasol played 25 minutes, and recorded 14 points (6-11 FG, 2-3 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, and a block. Kaman’s line for the night was nearly identical, playing 24 minutes and recording 12 points (5-11 FG, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, and a block.[/pullquote]
