During an interview with Nuggets’ head coach George Karl, he told the Denver Post, “As I told the team, we’re in a stage in the season where we’ve gotten better the last two games, but the losses are tough to handle. We’ve got to respect that on the road you must play a little bit smarter than we play. We’ve blown leads and our personality changes.”
