Harrison Wind @HarrisonWind Nuggets opened tonight with Aaron Gordon guarding Josh Giddey. Monte Morris, Will Barton, Jeff Green checked SGA for most of the first half. SGA only scored one basket with Gordon as his primary defender tonight. In the third, Gordon gave really good defensive effort. pic.twitter.com/PhYdQPMSGR – 1:47 AM
Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson Eric Bledsoe on the Zoom, on rebounding (he had a team-high eight tonight): “I think rebounding is all about effort, trying to get the ball — I just try to help the bigs out best I can… come in and steal a couple.” – 12:45 AM
