And here are the shooting efficiency stats:
By the stats, Anderson is not just a better player, he is a MUCH better player. And he can't get off the bench in a game where the team is playing tired? A game where they were giving up second and third attempts because they were too tired to rebound. Really?
The Nuggets are an interesting team this year, a team of a bunch of good but not great players. The only clearly bad player on the team is Mozgov who is a Doug Moe big stiff. He's 7'1" and can't rebound. This team will go only as far as George Karl's personal decisions allow, which is apparently not very far at all.
