Ty Lawson and Danilo Gallinari will have to be huge if the Nuggets want to win Friday.

In the NBA playoffs, a win-or-go-home environment, the Nuggets have their backs against the wall, down 0-2 to the Los Angeles Lakers.

 

The first game of the series was an ugly 103-88 loss for Denver, in which the Nuggets couldn't get out and run in transition as they had all regular season long. No doubt the young and inexperienced team was nervous, and the jitters showed early with 14 points in the first quarter and throughout the game.

 

Game 2 was a better performance for Denver overall, though they still fell 104-100. The Nuggets couldn't overcome Kobe Bryant's prolific scoring and Andrew Bynum's big-time, big-man play, but they should have learned a few lessons along the way.

 

If the Nuggets want to win Game 3 and give themselves a chance in the series, they have to be bold now.

 

Here are five bold predictions for the Nuggets—Lakers first-round Game 3 matchup.
