0-6. That’s the number. 0 and 6. Six times in their franchise history the Denver Nuggets have found themselves up against the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA playoffs, and six times they’ve lost. Suffice to say, it’s high time for change. With the seventh postseason series set to kick off tonight, the argument can be made this is the best Nuggets team any Lakers team will have to face.
It all started way back in ‘79. The first playoff series these two teams played against one another is also the only series where Denver was the higher seed.
