The road has not been kind to the Denver Nuggets, falling two games to none in the first round of the NBA playoffs against the Los Angeles Lakers. The Nuggets have not led at any point in the series thus far, but look to change their fortunes tonight at home in Game 3 at 8:30 in the Pepsi Center (TV: Altitude/ESPN).

"We definitely have to have a good start, especially at home and especially against them," Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari said.

Denver was blown out in Game 1 as Bynum posted a triple-double with 10 points, 10 blocks and 13 rebounds in a 103-88 rout.

But there was a point in Game 2 when Denver had the Lakers a little nervous. Trailing by as many as 19 in the third quarter, the Nuggets stormed back to make it a game, only to fade at the finish and fall 104-100.
