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 […]

The Nuggets continued their road trip in Memphis tonight after snapping a 7-game losing streak in New Orleans last night.
