With Carmelo Anthony out for three to four weeks the Denver Nuggets are going to have to pay a little more attention to detail on offense in order to earn good shots. So far they have done a very good job in the first halves of their two games they have played without Melo. However, in the second half of those two games they have stopped moving without the ball and attacking the rim. They begin settling for outside jumpers and as a result their production really falls off. They got away with it against the Miami Heat, but the Nuggets basically handed the Detroit Pistons a win due to their poor second half execution.
For my very first Film Room segment at RMC I have compiled some clips from both halves of the Detroit game to show the stark contrast between how the Nuggets have played offense in the first half compared to the second half.
