LOS ANGELES (AP)—The Los Angeles Lakers stepped off one thrill ride and, after little time to catch their breath, have to jump on another.

No big deal, Kobe Bryant(notes) said Monday, the only day the top-seeded Lakers had to prepare for the Western Conference finals against Chauncey Billups(notes), Carmelo Anthony(notes) and the rest of the second-seeded Denver Nuggets.

“You just get after it. We’re pretty familiar with this team,” Bryant said.

Game 1 is Tuesday night at Staples Center. The Lakers will be trying to get back to the NBA finals for the second straight year while the Nuggets will be trying to get there for the first time.

“Honestly, when we played them in Denver, the second-to-last time we played them, I told Melo, ‘I’ll see you in the Western Conference finals,’ because I just felt like they had all the pieces there,” Bryant said. “They had the depth, the toughness. They had the camaraderie. It’s no surprise to me that they’re here.”

I like how Melo gets a T for saying something, but Kobe is allowed to jump up and down, screaming like a 5 y/o.

No biased reffing here. Definitely not.
