Terrible bench killed the Nuggets, again. To blow a 20 point lead to the Clippers is embarrassing. But I've gotten to the point where I don't even care.

One of the things that's been exposed this season is Tim Connelly's really poor roster construction. The injuries are bad, but Campazzo, Rivers, Reed don't belong in the NBA and yet they're part of the rotation really out of necessity because they have nowhere else to go.

If he resigns Campazzo it's a really, really bad sign for this team going forward.

If a 25+ 2nd half lead against Clippers without Kawhi and George is not enough this season for the Malone on the road, what lead do we need?

OK, I got it, Malone is untouchable, but can we at least lock up him at halftime on road games in the locker room every time we have a double-digit lead? This never happens in any team sport before that the same team is best in 1st half but league-worst in the 2nd half.

The bench was 7-33, threes are 4-33, turnovers are 19-9 in our *favor*, but it is not some statistics we should blame if the same thing repeats again and again.

When Jamal comes back, Facu should go back to being third string PG, until then not much they can do I guess.

Remember, we're having to start some 2nd and 3rd string players, most of these guys weren't expected to get but a few mins on the court, if any at all.

That said, weren't there like 5 guys who were o-for on their shooting, that is way too many guys who weren't ready to play. I'd have each one of those guys running suicides sprints ...a LOT of suicides
