CSG Video: Michael Malone on learning from bad games and the Jurkic lineup advantages (audio)

Denver Nuggets head coach Michael Malone spoke to reporters today after the Nuggets loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves last night in Lincoln. Malone was asked about the importance of learning from bad games, and wondering what they can clean up in the process. What can the team glean from a poor performance, despite being undermanned.

Malone was asked by Adam Mares of Denver Stiffs about spacing in the Jusuf Nirkic and Nikola Jokic lineup, and Malone gave some really good answers about how the team can account for the spacing difficulties in the so called Jurkic lineup.

CSG What's Happening: The Rise of Balkan Buddy Ball


This is Michael Malone's new term for the Jurkic lineup featuring Nikola Jokic and Jusuf Nurkic. If one thing is for certain based on the comments from Malone the combination of Nurkic and Jokic is something he enjoys very much. Maybe this is a sign of things to come?

Paul Klee from the Colorado Springs Gazette asked Malone about the attendance at Pepsi Center. How can the Nuggets attract people back to the arena in such a tough market. Is it as easy as just winning? Is it about slogans? Is it about both? 

Also we talk about the Nuggets preseason so far and the Jurkic lineup's affect on Emmanuel Mudiay and if that is something that will continue all season long? Mudiay has struggled a bit to regain his form, and some of that has to do with the lane being a bit clogged due to the presence of Nurkic and Jokic.
