Mozgov Finding Greater Comfort, Success In Playing For Shaw 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Dec 4, 2013 6:07 pm

Timofey Mozgov is averaging 16.5 points and 17.5 rebounds over the past two games as his numbers are up across the board in his third full season with the Denver Nuggets.


"He's getting an opportunity and he's making the most of it," Brian Shaw said.


"He puts you on the court. He trusts in you," Mozgov said of Shaw. "It's better. It's simple."


"He found out pretty quickly what we were asking him to do, and he's going out and doing it," Shaw said. "Set good screens, roll hard to the basket, rim-run on a miss; if you don't get the rebound, you should be the first one down getting good position. And we'll throw the ball inside to you if you do those things. Offensively he's put himself in the right positions to make the plays we need him to make, and defensively his size gives us a different dimension."

It doesn't hurt that Koufos was traded and Mcgee got hurt which opened up a ton more playing time for him. If those 2 things happened while Karl was still coaching I'm sure that he'd be feeling a similar comfort level.

Karl lacks the ability to recognize good Centers. Disgusting that he won the coach of the year.

Is it possible that the comfort level he's feeling has something to do with shaved armpits?
