The bench provided a significant boost tonight and despite a decided size advantage, the Nuggets dominated the game in a […]
Brian Shaw elected to go small with the starting 5 tonight, inserting Randy Foye at the 2 and bumping Danilo Gallinari and Kenneth Faried to the 4 and 5 respectively. It didn’t do much to jump start the offense, but the team definitely came with more energy and looked like they were at least trying on […]
That’s five straight losses and nine straight at home. The Nuggets were blown out of their own building again, this time by the Jazz who won by 22.
