The Lakers are underdogs for the first time in a long time tonight when they travel to Denver to take on the Nuggets. L.A. is still a very good team, but most NBA fans have to have seen some serious issues regarding this nuggets team.
For one, their front line isn't nearly as good as Denver's. With Nene, Kenyon Martin and Carmelo Anthony, the Nuggets provide a stiff test for anybody. The test is one that L.A. has yet to pass wtih Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum.
The second issue is that at the point guard position, the Lakers are horribly overmatched. Derik Fisher and Jordan Farmar have no chance against Chauncey Billups. The former heart and soul of the Detroit Pistons has taken his calm demeanor to a team with the ability to win a championship.
