Faceguarding is a wildly successful tactic against Kobe.

Just ask Shane Battier and Carmelo.

Denver did get a critical Non-call on JR in the lane at that last tip off though

I'm rooting for the nuggets but no Mello is not as good as Kobe

I think it is the supporting cast that makes it appear that way at times.

Kobe nailed 2 3's with mello inside of his shorts. It was insane

I don't think that's true anymore. He's Kobe's equal as a scorer, and is a better rebounder and a worse defender, although his defense is improving by leaps and bounds.

Watch the way both Kobe and Mello are covered by the other team. Mello gets a ton of 1 on 1, where as Kobe gets a double or more when he is driving the lane. Right now Denver's defense is doing alot better job then the Lakers.

To answer your question, Only a homer nugget fan thinks that Mello is as good as Kobe. It is still LaBron and Kobe, followed by Wade as the best players in the NBA talks go, after that there is a large number of other players behind them... Dwight Howard, Carmello Anthony, Chris Paul, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett types.

As a nuggets fan I pretty much agree with you here. I do however think the gap between the top 3 and mello has shrunk this season.

Mello has got to prove his meddle in the playoffs and so far, so good.

No, he's not. Twice in the fourth quarter Kobe hit crucial 3-pointers with Melo in his face. He is still an unreal talent and you expect every shot he takes to go in.

That said, Melo is playing almost at the same level right now. Maybe not as dangerous as Kobe overall, but he is taking over games when he needs to and is borderline indefensible at times. This playoff series could be where we see him take the step from "very good" to "great." He may not be in Kobe or LeBron territory, but he is proving himself worthy of going head-to-head with them.

Not that it wasn't a missed call, but the Lakers won that tip.

Don't care. Don't particularly like the Nuggets, but am loving the game they are taking to the Lakers. Doesn't matter who's better, matters who wins.

me and a guy at work debated this, my take is you won the tip...hold the ball and it is a non issue

The Lakers are the last team that should get upset over a missed call.
