Denver Nuggets defeat LA Lakers 113-96. Kobe Bryant spent the day with "gastroenteritis." In normal terms, Kobe was puking his guts out all day. It seemed oddly reminiscent of Game 2 of the 2002 Western Conference Finals against the Sacramento Kings when he scored 22 points in a 96-90 loss.

The way this Game 6 started, one would have thought the entire Lakers' team got sick. The Nuggets stormed out to a 13-0 lead and never looked back. Kobe scored 31, while Ramon Session's 14 points, Devin Ebanks 10 points and Andrew Bynum's 11 rounded out the double-digit scoring for the Lakers.

Game 7 will be at STAPLES Center on Saturday night where the Lakers will get Ron Artest back.
