What a beating the Lakers have taken in their visit to Denver. The Angelenos, still waiting for Anthony Davis, were run over by Colorado in a game in which they were down 42 points to end up losing 133-96.
The gathering was yet another example that Californians are far from what they want to be. They endured the first quarter, in the second they prevented the Nuggets from breaking up the game, but by the third and fourth… they had no answer for a local team that surpassed them in all facets of the game. Denver distributed 35 assists and the Lakers 21, to give an example.
