The Nuggets’ have missed both of their young players. Gary Harris was known for his defense coming out of Michigan State but has slowly rounded out his game and is now a threat on both ends of the court. Harris saw his scoring average increase from 3.9 to 12.4 from his rookie to his sophomore season. The Nuggets’ are very high on Harris and have crowned him their starting shooting guard for the foreseeable future.
Although Nikola Jokic has seen his numbers and production dip since his rookie season, he is still regarded as one of the promising young big men in the league. He willingly went to Michael Malone and told him he would like to come off the bench for the betterment of the team after the so called “Jurkic” lineup experiment seemed to have failed.
