The rest leading up to the series and during this playoff matchup has greatly aided in the play of All Star Kobe Bryant as he has averaged over 33 points a game in this playoff series. The duo of Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol prove to be a difficult match up for Denver whose big men really lack the experience in the playoffs. Bynum in game two went off for 27 points and nine boards in the win. His defensive contributions have been outstanding thus far as the big man has 12 blocks and 22 rebounds in two games.

Point guard Ty Lawson gave the Nuggets a solid performance on Tuesday with 25 points and seven assists on 11 of 17 shooting.
