So why did those geniuses suspended Bones last game, what was the point, especially when the team is decimated by the injuries, what was the point of one game suspension, if he was playing maybe Denver would have won that game :banghead:

ATL having a poor shooting night, other than Trae. Nice rollercoaster season we're on , win one, lose one.

Ups&Down season continues.

On the road, Denver has a +3 net rate in the 1st half (TOP-3 in the league) and -5.5 in the 2nd half (BOTTOM-3 in the league), so usually, we need great 1st half to beat the strong opponent on the road and exactly that happens today in Atlanta.

Despite Malone playing him under 17mpg so far seems that Hyland is already 2nd most influential player in terms of final outcome in Denver because Bones on a good day can make our bench relevant. In Denver's wins this season Bones averages 12ppg (65%TS%) and just 5ppg (36%TS%) in Nuggets losses. I don't see a better formula for a young player to get more constancy than playing more minutes even on bad days, otherwise "Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde" season style will be prolonged for Bones.
