Kenneth Faried grabs 25 rebounds, saves Nuggets from sloppy loss posted on 12/28/2014

It's the little things Brian Shaw hates. The times when his players don't box out. The times when the ball bounces in front of them and they still don't go for the ball. The missed free throws. The shoddy defense.

He must have had a hard time sitting through Friday's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Pepsi Center.

Coming off a blowout loss at Charlotte and a sloppy defeat at Brooklyn, the Nuggets returned home to host the Timberwolves, the worst team in the West, in a game that, on paper, should have been Denver's for the taking.

And until the fourth quarter, Kenneth Faried appeared to be the only Nuggets player who wanted it.

Faried, who turned in one of his finest showings of the season against Brooklyn three nights earlier, came back with an even better one Friday with 26 points and a career-high 25 rebounds while leading the Nuggets to a 106-102 victory over the Timberwolves.

Denver Nuggets Preseason Report 2014 posted on 09/26/2014

Denver Nuggets could not make it to the playoffs, even with Juwan Howard as their lead scorer. Key players such as Nene Hilario, Junior Harrington, and Nikoloz Tskitishvili were sidelined, and the team overall was plagued with injuries. With 36 wins and 46 losses, the season was a disaster, yet there were moments of hope as certain players like Kenneth Faried and Ty Lawson showed good improvement. Secondly, the team also had to adjust to a new coach in ten years, but the new system seems to have worked fine.   

According to certain experts, Denver Nuggets have 10% playoff odds and a 38-44 win/loss score, for 2014-2015. If the team keeps to the current muster there are good chances of reaching at least the playoffs, provided Javale McGee, Danillo Gallinari, and Ty Lawson keep good health. Acquiring Gary Harris by the draft will certainly help, as he will improve the defense, as well as the offense of the team. Additionally, getting back SG Arron Afflalo for the offseason is a worthwhile acquisition. Afflalo is a great shooter and he will strengthen the team's offense considerably.
