Its been a disappointing season thus far, other than the Memphis game, we don't have a statement win. Hopes were high going into the season but this slow start is killing those hopes. Nuggets were rated pretty high coming in as well. Hopefully we can string together a couple of wins against solid teams. Tonight's game will be a good start, getting a win in NY would do wonders too, especially how they just blew Miami out of the water.
Seriously, what can I expect to see from Denver tonight?
Indiana is struggling offensively, but is very good defensively. Expect the Nuggets to take lots of long 2's. Indy really protects the paint and runs guys off the 3 point line. Offensively, George Hill and David West are the main guys. Paul George is a boom or bust guy offensively. Roy Hibbert may set a record for most shots missed under 10 ft. The starters are good, the bench isn't.
Well, we are sort of like you guys except we are not nearly as good defensively. We are awful against ANYONE guarding the perimeter...we're pretty decent down low. Our rotations defensively and against the pick and roll are poor. We mainly rely on Ty, Igua, Gallo for our offense....expect to see us attack the paint...and if we don't attack then take ridiculous contested jumpers. You want to foul us because we are poor on the free throw line.
Watch out for Faried...cause he makes all the difference for us. If he wasn't in foul trouble...maybe we could of won against the Hawks but he struggles mightily guarding outside the paint.
Our bench is not as good as years past because we are missing that 6th man...Karl wants it to be Corey Brewer..ugh.
We are kind of a tease really. We can play amazing basketball and beat anybody...but then there are nights where we play like we have just met each other for the first time
