Karl: Nuggets not far off on defending Thunder
Question of the Day
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - George Karl doesn’t know if there’s much more his Denver Nuggets can do to slow down the NBA’s scoring champion and his All-Star sidekick.
Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook combined for 72 points in Oklahoma City’s Game 1 victory over Denver.
Karl doesn’t believe his Nuggets were that far off on defense. He says his breakdown of the game tape had Durant and Westbrook going a combined 18 for 25 on jump shots. And 14 of the made baskets came with a Denver player’s hand in their face.
Those are exactly the kind of shots Karl wants Denver’s defense to force.
So, Karl’s message headed into Game 2 Wednesday night in Oklahoma City is not to overreact.
