Linas Kleiza to start game 2

As Elliott wrote in his game story Sunday, the chess match has begun. Denver coach George Karl announced Tuesday that 6-foot-8 Linas Kleiza, who came off the bench to score 23 points in Game 1, will start in place of 6-foot-2 Anthony Carter in Game 2 against the Lakers on Wednesday night.

No word yet on whether he’ll match-up with Kobe Bryant, or whether Kenyon Martin will, but it’s obvious Denver has decided to go big in Game 2 to better match up with the Lakers front line, which consists of three players –Radmanovic, Odom and Gasol — who stand 6-foot-10 or taller.
