Michael Malone recalled : “It’s funny, when I go back to my five years as an assistant coach in Cleveland, that was part of my relationship with LeBron (James),” “I was unafraid to coach him, to hold him accountable if he wasn’t doing his job. (That’s) the reason, I think, Chris Paul and I hit it off (in New Orleans). Then as a head coach, I think of DeMarcus Cousins. ‘How did Coach Malone get through to DeMarcus?’ Now Jamal Murray.

Michael Malone said : "We put him in the middle of our zone, tried to funnel everything to him and let him block shots. He did a really good job of that. I think he got tired as the game went on, which is to be expected. He played 32 minutes, which was a team-high. “He’s only going to get better. He did a lot of really good things out there. I’m proud of him”. The social media buzz continued afterward when the Nuggets’ public relations staff informed the media that Bol’s press conference was delayed because he was submitting a drug test to the NBA, leaving fans to joke about the randomness of the test. The Nuggets’ 25 turnovers, however, was no laughing matter. Jokic, who was deemed to be the truest of point guards available, recorded eight of them. The Nuggets coach said giveaways were an issue even before play was halted in March. “Regardless of who else is out there, Nikola can’t have eight turnovers. Sixteen points, seven assists, seven rebounds is great, but he needs to set the tone for us,” Malone said. “I know he’ll be better. It’s something he takes great pride in”. The Nuggets could get another look at their big lineup in Saturday’s scheduled scrimmage against New Orleans, though Malone could have a few more options. Jamal Murray and Will Barton were held out Wednesday as a precautionary measure, while the Denver Post reported Michael Porter Jr. was en route to Orlando. Malone has not discussed players who are not with the team, and Wednesday seven big bodies and Daniels were enough. “It wasn’t pretty all the time, but I give our guys a lot of credit," “We had a lot of guys step in and play positions that are not their natural, comfortable positions.
