Rapid Reaction: Denver Nuggets 113, Charlotte Bobcats 99

Denver Nuggets 113 Final

Recap | Box Score

99 Charlotte Bobcats
Danilo Gallinari, SF 15 MIN | 2-3 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 2 AST | 1 STL | 2 BLK | 1 TO | 6 PTS | +2

Gallo saw limited action tonight between foul trouble early in the game and a reaggravated injury early in the second half. When he was on the court he was fairly effective both offensively and defensively. Overall grade incomplete.

Kenneth Faried, SF 27 MIN | 7-9 FG | 1-1 FT | 5 REB | 1 AST | 2 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 15 PTS | +14

Faried got off to a slow start tonight and wasn’t ever able to take control of the glass. He also got lost a couple of times defensively. On the plus side, he got to the rim several times and showed a nice touch on a couple of makes from the right block. His energy level increased as the game went on, and two nice defensive plays late in the third helped keep the Nuggets firmly in the lead.

Kosta Koufos, C 22 MIN | 4-7 FG | 0-0 FT | 6 REB | 0 AST | 1 STL | 2 BLK | 0 TO | 8 PTS | +10

Kosta was quietly effective tonight. He was active on putback attempts, though they mostly weren’t falling. His defense started out shaky but improved as the game went on.

Ty Lawson, PG 40 MIN | 6-15 FG | 7-9 FT | 5 REB | 5 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 3 TO | 20 PTS | +13

Like most of the other Nuggets starters, Ty was unspectacular early this game. He opened with two turnovers and some lazy defense, and deferred far too much on offense. When Gallinari left the game and Iguodala sat with foul trouble, the light seemed to go on and Ty became a whole different player, getting to the rim and to the line. Even though he got his shot blocked several times, he stayed aggressive and kept the pressure on the defense.

Andre Iguodala, SG 30 MIN | 5-7 FG | 2-3 FT | 5 REB | 10 AST | 2 STL | 2 BLK | 1 TO | 13 PTS | +15

Iggy was on his way to a great game when he was derailed by foul trouble in the third quarter. He was passing the ball as well as I’ve seen from any Nugget this year, setting up several McGee dunks and a Lawson triple. His defensive activity led to several easy buckets, including his own breakaway dunk off of a steal. Were it not for a dumb fourth foul, he would have shared the highest grade of the game.

Anthony Randolph, PF 2 MIN | 0-0 FG | 1-2 FT | 0 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 1 PTS | -2

Of the players who came in at the end of the game, Randolph had by far the most opportunity, but made very little of it, turning the ball over on a silly foul and missing one of his two free throws.

Jordan Hamilton, SF 2 MIN | 0-1 FG | 0-0 FT | 0 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 0 PTS | -2

Incomplete.

Corey Brewer, SF 28 MIN | 5-16 FG | 2-2 FT | 4 REB | 2 AST | 2 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 14 PTS | +8

Brewer is often the hardest player to grade, because he does so many good things and so many bad things over the course of a game. Tonight, the bad came out a little ahead. He created two Nuggets layups with his defense, but I counted seven major defensive blunders as well. He twice pulled down tough rebounds in traffic, but also blew a layup and messed up a 2 on 1 fast break. He started off making his three pointers, but then took a couple of heat check type shots with defenders in his face.

JaVale McGee, C 17 MIN | 8-10 FG | 1-1 FT | 6 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 3 BLK | 3 TO | 17 PTS | +6

JaVale held his own personal dunk contest tonight, using the Bobcats front line as props. On one occasion when he didn’t have a dunk available, he made a nice pass to set up a Brewer layup. He also blocked or altered several Bobcats shots (and goaltended one.) He seemed to singlehandedly deflate the Bobcats crowd on more than one occasion.

Andre Miller, PG 26 MIN | 3-6 FG | 2-2 FT | 2 REB | 5 AST | 2 STL | 1 BLK | 4 TO | 8 PTS | +3

Andre made a couple of very nice passes, and a handful of ill-advised passes, such as trying to find Kosta Koufos in the middle of four defenders. His defensive effort was considerably better tonight than in some recent games. I was pleased by his efforts to get to the rim, though he wasn’t always able to finish.

Evan Fournier, SG 2 MIN | 0-0 FG | 0-0 FT | 0 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 0 PTS | -2

Incomplete.

Wilson Chandler, SG 29 MIN | 4-9 FG | 2-2 FT | 6 REB | 3 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 11 PTS | +5

I continue to be impressed by Wilson Chandler’s defensive versatility. One play he’ll be fighting a big in the post, the next he’ll cause a turnover on the perimeter, and the next he’ll pull down a tough rebound in traffic. His impact on that end of the floor was good this game. His offense was also solid, aside from one terrible shot from the baseline. He gets a downgrade for being a little foul-happy (though one was a good foul in an end of quarter, foul to give situation.)

George Karl

There was a stretch early in the third quarter, after Gallinari got hurt and Iguodala picked up his fourth foul, that the Nuggets offense stagnated with poor spacing. This was the only part of the game where I thought Karl needed to make a substitution that he didn’t. For most of the game, he played the players who were being effective. He even stood up for his players, yelling at the officials quite a bit after a series of questionable calls in the second period and taking a tech late in the fourth after another bad series.

    Good thing we faced the Bobcats tonight. Just sayin

    • Thomas

      A- for Gallo?

      Stopped reading there.

  • Chris

    What an awful performance. The Nuggets did a decent job holding off the worst team in the NBA, but that will not hold up against anybody better. Disappointing all around.

  • Monkey D. Luffy

    Its just disgusting how much Karl dislikes McGee he had 8 points 4 rebounds in 9 minutes in the first half and only got 9 minutes.. And he sits out most of the second half too… But he still finished with 17 points 6 rebounds in 17 minutes. Karl is just so frustrating..

    • googergieger

      Word. Kid was our best big in the first half like he was last night. Didn’t get any real playing time until Karl figured, “what the hell”. Kid still came in and was great. Only took one bad shot, but the rest of the time he was controlled and fundamentally sound. Way better than Koufos and Faried, who one of which got three rebounds by missing three shots point blank, and the other of which played really out of control today.

      • Ckwizard

        This was the best game I have seen McGee play, his defense is improving ans he is boxing out and rebounding better. He can become the star the nuggets need if he can continue to let sound Fundementals dictate his play.

        • googergieger

          He’s had a few great games like this. Again at the start of the season he was our most consistent guy. Karl still limited his minutes. Not even the asthma excuse. He just really likes some players and never likes others. Even if Koufos wasn’t there, Karl would still play McGee the same minutes. Even if Koufos, Mozgov, Randolph, and Faried weren’t there. Karl would still play McGee the same minutes. If Karl had five Andre Millers and one Javale McGee, he’d probably play McGee even less minutes than he does now.

          • http://yahoo.com prospector

            DUDE, that is one of the best KARL assessments ever!!!

          • mike

            Javale mcgee and consistent are an O\oxymoron. He is the definition of inconsistent. He is best played in chaos because if it is not that way it will Become that way. He has no sense of defensive principles nor any idea between a decent offensive shot and horrible.

            Look I understand why the nugs decided to pick this guy up because if he had AVERAGE basketball IQ (decision making) he would be a top 3 Center in the league. Mcgee probably has the best combination of size, speed, length, agility and body control in the HISTORY of the league. He plays like a high school sophomore out there though. He averages one IDIOTIC decision per 5 minutes of play. Average would be 1 per 20 minutes. One of the issues with his numbers is that he makes 1-2 goal tends per 20 minutes of play. If you understand the difference between a good team and great team guys like Mcgee CANT get more than 20 minutes on a championship quality team.

            • Ban Johnson

              That’s a decent assessment of McGee currently. But it doesn’t have to be that way forever.

              A big part of Karl’s job coaching a young, developing team is to develop the greatest talent to as much of its potential as possible. Karl just doesn’t seem to see it that way.

              • mike

                There’s absolutely nothing that would give you the impression that Mcgee has the facility to develop that. there are now 4.5 years that suggest he will not. The only thing I have seen him do in terms of effort or smart play different is rotation on 3 pt shots, but of course he then just sits there and watches the rest of the play if there is an offensive rebound. It’s stuff that 95% of the league learns not to do within one season. And most of the others are essentially out of the league. I think it is EXTREMELY optimistic that he will all of a sudden figure it out. He has had a full year with Denver now and his playing time is obviously curtailed because of these mishaps and lack of preparation. It doesn’t seem to phase him… Im sure he is a decent dude and whatever so Im not trying to assail him as a person, but as a basketball player he’s a great athlete… At the time I thought it was an OK trade for Nene, but after the salaries are relatively similar and Mcgee has essentially made no progression other than adding a few offensive pieces that are OK but acts like he is Hakeem.

                Im not sure they could ever get anything valuable for him but if they could get Marcin Gortat even throwing in another OK piece (hamilton, a restricted 1st pick, etc) I would do that in a second.

  • DAN

    With this team any win on the road is a good win

    • googergieger

      No. It is them doing their job. They should beat the Bobcats teams one hundred times in a row if they face them a hundred times in a row. They did what they were supposed to do tonight and didn’t do last night. What they should do on Monday and probably won’t do, given the fact very little effort was put in today. Just beat a shitty team with the barest of effort.

      • DAN

        Of course they SHOULD beat the Cats but they should beat Washington. Frankly this team is bad on the road. So any win is “good”.

        • Ackdog

          Well said Dan. Of any so called playoff contender the Nuggets have the worst road record. I haven’t seen the last two games, what’s up with Gallo? the kid was coming good and all of sudden the numbers fall off. Please explain someone. Thanks

          • dynamo.joe

            Bad quad,deep bruise or something.

  • http://espn herpderpnuggets

    Was gallo just sitting out for rest in the second half? good win btw

  • googergieger

    The good. Javale McGee. The bad. Everything else. We played a bad team tonight who gave more of an effort than we did. We won. Should have done the same last night. As it stands, I don’t like our chances on Monday. Lakers are getting the ref love to the play offs, and it is going to take effort from everyone to fight through that and dominate them. Which we should. Also going to take Karl not going small at every position. Hope Gallo is okay. Don’t like Iggy out there when we were up fifteen going on more. He’s still hurt, let him rest if we don’t need him. Give the time to our out of rotation players and McGee who earned it. Don’t know, guys looked disinterested tonight. Think some are finally getting tired of Karl. Again if we fail in the play offs again, I’m hoping for a new coach.

  • theo

    Not sure I’d call it awful like last night was, but agreed not impressive. Still, stopped the bleeding and actually played some defense over the final three quarters.

    Concerned about the ongoing Gallo injury thing. With the sked coming up, can’t have him at less than 100%.

    Putting an inappropriately positive spin on things, that’s 2 out of 3 post all star break. Next three aren’t make or break, but close to it, and will tell us a lot about how realistic our chances are of getting the 4th seed and really competing seriously in the playoffs when we get there.

  • mcz84

    Why isnt McGee getting more minutes cmon GK play him at least 25, he deserves it I get so frustrated with GK.And why is Brewer shooting everytime he touches the ball 5-16 , yikes. Gallo is hurting hope he gets well.Nice win but it was the bobcats,, had it been someone else it wouldve been another loss.START MCGEE

  • GK4Prez

    I thought Iguodala was having one of his better games as a Nuggets player, but the foul trouble limited his game.

    Gallo should have just stayed in Denver, Chandler had a couple of decent games, but he still forces the action.

    Brewer isn’t afraid to take a shot, that takes guts. If you don’t believe me, ask the coach.

    Will the manimal ever come close to double digits in rebounds again. Now that he has scored 40 points in a game, he seems to have forgotten what he is being paid and asked to do.

    Mcgee was pretty solid, glad he got the 17 minutes he did get.

    • Ryan

      Meh. He got 15 against Boston. He seems to feed off of the home crowd a bit, needs to bring that same energy on the road…

  • http://twitter.com/xantoniooo808x D3Ntilthe3ND

    One sequence of events seemed to frustrate me more than anything.

    Corey’s turnover when he passed out of an open 3 & Kemba stole it…. No action from GK…

    JaVale makes one bad play on the inbound ( granted it was pretty unacceptable) & he’s taken out immediately at the next dead ball even with all the good things he did.

    I don’t know how anyone expects this team to grow if they’re benched everytime they make a bad play while, GK’s favs are free to do as they please without consequence.

    Some “fans” are so blind, they just don’t see the problem.

    • Ryan

      Yup. As Kalen would say: “SSDD”…

      • theo

        No dog in the Karl fight.

        Don’t care one way or another whether he stays or goes.

        Player talent is the key like it always is in the NBA.

        That’s the truth like it or not.

        • googergieger

          Lakers getting the chip baby!

        • Ryan

          Players still need to be allowed onto the floor. With Javale, as one of many examples on the Nuggets, it doesn’t matter how well he plays, he only gets 15-18 minutes. That is a coaching issue and all the talent in the world can’t make a difference from the bench…

    • http://yahoo.com prospector

      Dude, it sounds like you have taken the red pill and you are out of the KARL “MATRIX”.. Don’t feel alone my friend.. There are a few of us out there.

  • theo

    Interesting point re Manimal. Here’s my take. As his game gets more well rounded, ie., as he learns to shoot a free throw line jumper and becomes at least a decent defender–he’s poor now–his rebound numbers may go down. I’m sure lots of fans have noticed like I have that part of the reason–particularly on the defensive end–he doesn’t play well is that he sacrifices almost everything–like good fundamental defensive positioning–to get into rebounding position. He’ll often leave stretch 4’s, or even guards he’s picked up on a switch, prematurely on the perimeter, for example, in order to get back near the glass, leading to wide open shots for those guys. As he becomes a better defender on plays like that, he’ll get fewer boards, ironically.

    Anyway, not sure that’s why he’s not being Manimal right now–probably just a young player losing focus in the middle of the season–but he may not be the double digit monster board guy in the future as he becomes a better player.

    • GK4Prez

      I mostly agree Theo, I am not knocking him or at least I wasn’t trying to. I have just noticed that he isn’t going after rebounds the way he was before the break.

    • http://yahoo.com prospector

      I agree THEO.. My problem is the switching defense KARL uses… When you have guys like McGee and Faried on the floor that can bang, you don’t want them switching every two seconds on the point guards.. That is STUPID….

      • theo

        Feel you, but I think the reason the coaching staff keeps them off the court at the same time is because both are pretty poor defenders by the eyeball test and advanced stats. We get killed defensively when both play at the same time. That’s also one of the reasons we go small at the ends of games when we have a lead.

        I wish they were both skilled defenders, but they aren’t. Very frustrating for all of us that can see the athleticism and potential.

        • googergieger

          Yup that Miller at the two and Faried at the five, sure make us the best defensive team we could possibly be.

  • thawk

    Pick n pop!

  • CJP32

    Ha ha, a D+ for CBrew who scores 14 off the bench and defended multiple Bobcats including 7 Footer Mullens in the post. Yeah 5/16 is ugly but I’m pretty sure GK was ok with him shooting with Gallo limited.

  • GK4Prez

    I wouldn’t have given Brewer such a low grade, but I can certainly understand why someone would/did. He definitely isn’t the guy on the team that I want to see taking the most fga in a game, and he is now below 30% on the season from deep, yet he jacked up 8 from behind the arc in this game.

    • CJP32

      I guess the reason why CBrew took as many as 16 FGAs is because he was inserted into the game at the 8 minute mark of both the 1st and the 3rd qtrs, (which is about 5 minutes earlier than normal).

      He is a career .301% shooter from three, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that he is only shooting .302% this season. However his 2PT FG% is much better at .497% – which is higher than Gallo, Ty, Chandler, JHam and Miller (only Iggy shoots a better % for SGs/SFs).

  • googergieger

    Really? Outside of McGee and Lawson these grades are pretty awful. I love Faried as much as the next guy but no reason he should ever be running a fast break. Much more he was really disinterested most of the game. Koufos was awful. Three of his rebounds came off his own misses. Three times in a row. Seeing as everyone constantly says he is hands and above better than McGee, no idea when he does less in more minutes than McGee, on average he gets a C+ at worst and McGee get a C+ at best. Obviously not today, but in general that is how most Nugget fans seem to grade the two. The funny part is it seems to be because Karl(who most Nugget fans hate) says one is incredibly fundamentally sound and the other is lazy and crazy, well past month or so the former has been useless and the latter even when playing well like tonight, still gets the shaft when it comes to minutes.

    Karl deserves a C. Most people today deserve a C. Most guys today seemed to phone it in a lot today. Karl got away with his Karl logic on account of who he played.

    In other news, refs were cheating a lot for The Clips. Jazz started getting pissed and they decided to start letting them play a bit and call the fouls The Clips were committing. Hope this turns into a fight. Only a few guys in the league anymore will hit someone hard when the refs start on their bullshit to let them know what’ll happen if they don’t start playing fair. Stephen Jackson comes to mind. Remember he gaves Artest a nice chop across the arm and then looked at the ref and it looked like the ref said, “Okay, I hear you”.

  • Mark from Charlotte

    I live in Charlotte and I was at the game. GK is just so frustrating, his rotations during the game are terrible. I hope next year the Nuggets get a new coach. I sat near the bench, in my opinion this team needs to play better defense to advance in the playoffs. Good to see a lot of Nugget fans at the game.

  • googergieger

    Not for nothing but this Utah Jazz coach is pretty horrible as well. Let The Clips go on a 10-0 run to start the third. Then calls a time out and comes back with no substitutions. Played a useless Foye tonight big minutes. Plays Hayward little minutes despite him probably being their best perimeter guy right now in general. Then for a team being supposedly about the youth movement, plays his young guys shit minutes too. Wonder what that team is doing in general. Aren’t going to make it out of the first round this year themselves. Milsap and Jefferson are probably gone after this year. So wonder if they expect to sign someone via free agency. Or do they have good picks coming up? Wonder how they feel about the coach they got now. Or how the fan base feels.

    • CJP32

      Have you seen there salary cap for next season?? Just 16 Million in committed salaries plus Marvin Williams 7.5 Player Option. They will have about 45 million to throw around next season.

      • googergieger

        Yeah. So again wondering who they are expecting to get via fee agency. Reddick? Josh Smith? They already have Kanter and Favors. What are the other big names out there for next year? I mean I doubt they can get Chris Paul and/or Howard…

        • http://twitter.com/xantoniooo808x D3Ntilthe3ND

          Hayward’s coming off an injury that had him sidelined for a month or two so that’s probably why he didn’t play too much.

          But yeah, Ty Corbin must be a GK disciple.

          TBH, all due respect, but I think GK is just happy to be alive. Not too invested in what it takes to completely control a basketball team like a Poppovich who I think is the benchmark for an NBA coach at the moment.

          • googergieger

            Hayward averages like twenty six minutes period though.

    • Ryan

      Any minutes given to Foye are useless, don’t know how he’s still in the league (wait, the Jazz also employ Jamaal Tinsley LOL)… I bet the Jazz resign Millsap and let Jefferson walk. Or vice-versa. Favors looks legit, but Kanter has been hit or miss so far, may not want to go all in on two young big men just yet. As for free agency, I wouldn’t be surprised if they signed Reddick, even if it’s just because he’s white…

  • http://twitter.com/xantoniooo808x D3Ntilthe3ND

    I just read a comment from a guy defending Karl, & normally I have no problem with that, but I read a little more into his comment & “I haven’t seen the last two games, what’s up with Gallo?”

    Not trying to be an ass or anything, but that’s the kind of people I’m talking about. I’m not calling you out or saying “YOUR LESS OF A FAN THAN ME, I’M THE GREATEST FAN OF ALL TIMEEEE!!!11!!!!!!1!!1″, BUT you really can’t just sit there & defend GK when you haven’t watched the games. Just like I shouldn’t sit here & attack him without watching the games, but I do catch every single game even being all the way out here in Hawaii & it just gets so frustrating to see comment after comment defending the sub par state the nuggets are at right now because pretty much the only way it’ll change is for GK to have an epiphany (doubt it) or for uproar from the community (also doubt it).

    But I mean whatever. Again, not tryna bash anyone, just my thoughts.

    • theo

      Read through the thread and wondered what you were responding to.

      Your comments didn’t match anything that was posted here after the game.

      I’m interested–and probably most folks here are interested–in what you were trying to say.

      Try again?

  • AaronCAPS

    Tired of people always overrating Brewer & iggy..

    • googergieger

      Again, Iguodala is the best perimeter defender in the game and makes our defense seven points better. All the guys that hate on him basically argue this, “Other people are better because I say so!”.

      Literally the only not even argument they have going for them with the guy.

      • heykyleinsf

        IGGY IS OBSCENELY OVER RATED ESPECIALLY HERE.

  • Roundball Bill

    It’s games like this, coupled with his huge contract that make me wonder why the heck Javale isn’t the undisputed starting center on this team. He’s one of our most efficient offensive players, and even though he isn’t the best defensive players he is guaranteed to make a few high energy defensive plays and blocks in every game where he gets real minutes. Come on Karl, we aren’t paying the most athletic big man in the game $11 million a year to play 17 minutes a game. We want Javale!!! We want Javale!!!

  • Zorba

    It’s games like this… against the worst nba team, in which Javale proves his merit in having an 11 million contract…
    I really hope he can start for the rest of the season, just not to see your comments anymore…

  • GIANLUCA

    BREWER and W.CHANDLER all game have + shot of GALLO …

    WTF KARL , OUR OFFENSIVE STAR are GALLO and TY , your defensive IGOUDALA …

    stop +20 minutes BREWER MILLER !!!

    GALLO FARIED MCGEE + MINUTES

    • googergieger

      Gallo was hurt.

  • Cephus

    I’ll be first to admit Javale needs some more time for room to grow in order to become the force in playoffs that the Nuggets need him to be in money time.

    Yet I get why Karl has a short leash with him. This game was fantastic, granted but his rebounding has been anemic in the recent losses.

    He has got to anticipate,grind and block out on the boards for Karl’s tolerance factor to raise up. Especially when Danillo or Andre is hurting or Fariad is having an off night. What he did in that playoff game against Lakers last year was awesome, more please.

    In terms of raw talent Javale might just top Motumbo & that’s hard to say. I loved all of Dikembe’s game except those stone hands. He doesn’t have Dik’s savvy yet by a lOng shot. Good kid and good soul, there’s hope and I wish I was smart enough to say how its going to turn out.

  • Will the NC Nugget

    I was at the game last night and ill have to say even tho we kinda squeezed by Charlotte u gotta give em credit as well 704 had energy last night ..Kemba avg like 24 against us he matches up well w Ty and they have a lot of similarities …McGee was great out there besides the goal tend that I think may have been a reputation call smh. glad to see AI9 back in rhythm and as a lifelong TARHEEL its always good to see Ty play well. The game might not have been pretty all the way but we got the W and me and my lady got to see some high flying AI Javale and MANIMAL plays!!!! Good win Nuggz F the critics ….

  • Mark B

    Ever since Josh Weil’s article “George Karl has never been a good coach”, I watch every game from a coaching perspective to see if he was right in his claim that Karl has simply been fortunate to have over-talented, under-rated teams and that his players win in spite of his coaching.
    Last night Javale McGee played about as perfectly as a center can play in this league and Karl only saw fit to give him 17 minutes.
    Its just sad. I really hate this coach and will spend the rest of this season before he tanks this team in the first round of the playoffs fantasizing about the day when he is no longer the coach and this young talent can finally be unleashed. Ty needs to start averaging 35 a game and Wilson Chandler needs more minutes. He looks great out there lately. And when Gallo gets that leg back to health he will need 35 a game to help this team coming into its own embarrass opponents. This Nuggets team could be unstoppable.

    • Thomas

      Agree about GK. But let’s get real about Gallo – he will not become the player many fans fantasize about. Statistically improbable, objectively speaking the package is what it is. Not a reliable 20+point scorer, not a dominant player in other areas. In summary, a good player (to trade). No objective argument can change this truth, only consistent output. Particularly in the playoffs.

      • monimo

        Just words. Nobody knows what Gallo can be. He is on his 5th season (he lost hist first season because of back injury, then basically lost half of the lockout season). All we know today is that he had injury problems (and that IS an issue) and that he’s having, by far, his best season ever just this year. I agree that he is unproven in postseason, but we all can’t see where will be his prime.

  • http://yahoo.com prospector

    MY GAME TAKE:

    Chandler played two semi good games against inferior teams… His defense is solid.. My only problem is KARL’s use of him…. I think Wilson should get GALLO & IGGY minutes… Not FARIED/KK/MCGEE minutes… I rational coach with a brain would do that as well….
    I have been a little easy on BREWER.. He is a good kid with a heart of gold… However he has become a KARL favorite and now has the green light to do whatever the hell he wants with no reprecussions… BAD shot OK…. Turnovers, it’s all good…. Gambling on defense, you’re the man!! I am now officially ready to let him walk after this season… SORRY BREWER!!!
    KARL the monkey boy pressed the two point guard lineup button again, and walked away with a win against a team that is HORRIBLE… They can’t even shoot at home… This win means nothing to me… It’s like getting excited kissing your 80 year old AUNT ANNIE.. Go ahead KARL smile….. MORE GALLO, MORE 2 BIGS ON THE FLOORS ALWAYS , NO TWO POINT GUARDS = BIG WINS

    JHAM WATCH

    Was released briefly from Siberia… Throw a bone, like the scrubs in little league football get… Ya know the 5 plays a game cause you are on the roster..

    Hey Monkey BOY Karl, This was a game where you could have thrown more minutes at JHAM, RANDOLPH, and EvAN… I mean if you won’t develop you young players against the freakin BOBCATS, WHEN ARE YOU?? Against Oklahoma City???? So get ahead and smile KARL, you played your favorites against a SCRUB TEAM… How is that going to help us in the playoffs??

    I think a good majority of you need to go outside more. So much anger after a Nuggets win? Get a grip folks.
