"Once I sensed we didn't have the energy, I had to take it upon myself to lead by example," Kobe said. "It's just part of my responsibilities to this team."  Now the Lakers will look to go up 2-0 on Thursday.

The Lakers were down by seven points in the fourth quarter but Kobe took over in Game 1. "He was the scoring opportunity for us," Lakers coach Phil Jackson said. "We had very little else going on. He muscled his way through." Carmelo Anthony scored 39 points and Chauncey Billups had 18 for the Nuggets who were not happy they let the game slip away. "There's no moral victories in playoff basketball," Denver coach George Karl said. "The next 48 hours are going to be difficult."

"They have the best closer in the sport and we didn't do enough," Karl said.  The Lakers are now 7-1 at home in this year's playoffs.
