Mark, while certainly the inbounds pass was the most obvious example of something that lost the game for the Nuggets, I think the way they played the third quarter, with some really hard and unnecessary fouls, a technical or two, and some loss of composure is what really derailed them. JR Smith's unnecessary T at the end after hitting a 3. Dahntay Jones's unnecessary two-hand push to the back of Kobe on a curl (which should have been a flagrant). There were a couple of others I'm forgetting which was just Denver playing streetball rather than NBA basketball. In fact, after one of those technicals the announcers said [paraphrasing] "it's little things like this that is going to let the Lakers win." Truer words were never spoken. As a Laker fan, I was happy for that third quarter even though we were still down, I could see Denver unraveling as they had in years past. If they had just taken care of business and not felt the need to "send a message" with some overly physical play, they would have won the game.
