The Denver Nuggets enter play on Sunday with a mark of 15-17. It is not what the Nuggets management expected when the head coaching change was made to Brian Shaw as George Karl was fired in the offseason. Veteran point guard Andre Miller was suspended by the Nuggets for insubordination as the expressed his frustrations at the rookie head coach. The Nuggets are built to run and gun with its current roster of players. They play in high altitude giving them a strong advantage when playing at home. Instead the Nuggets have slowed the tempo and are only an 8-8 team on their home court. Once a team that dominated eastern conference clubs when they visiting the Nuggets the team is now suddenly losing games on their home court to bad Eastern Conference clubs. The reason Karl was fired was his poor performance in the playoffs. Shaw may not even get the Nuggets into the playoffs running his system that the players don’t want to play. The Lakers have their own problems. Sitting at 14-19 on the year the team sits in the lottery positing now five games behind the eighth seeded Dallas Mavericks for the final playoff spot. LA is trying to navigate down a difficult season with Kobe Bryant sidelined again for a significant time period. Kobe is out with a broken knee cap and could miss well over a month.
