DENVER — Hard to figure out what to make of the first half tonight. The Lakers shot enough bricks to build a house, but still managed to lead the Denver Nuggets. Kobe Bryant scored 13 points on 4-for-15 shooting. Ron Artest had 14 points on 5-for-6 shooting, the only Lakers starter shooting above 50 percent in the first half. The highlights of the game so far included a driving dunk by Shannon Brown and a wild brawl in the stands. Several unruly fans were ejected from the arena by some late-arriving security personnel.
