The Lakers have another chance to close out the Denver Nuggets on Thursday night at the Pepsi Center in Denver. However, regardless of the outcome the team will be playing again on Saturday evening.
If Los Angeles is able to eliminate the Nuggets on Thursday, they will begin their second round series with the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday, according to the team’s official Twitter feed.

However, even if they fall to the Nuggets tomorrow night, they will play Game 7 on Saturday, obviously pushing back the second round a bit further.
The time for either game is still yet to be determined.
