Just finished DEN-POR. DEN's late-season improvement is fun, but going nowhere significant w/ Faried at C (small-ball) or Faried/Hickson.
Blazers 8, JJ Hickson 6.
Warm cheers for JJ Hickson from the Moda Center crowd.
On the court: Nelson, Chandler, Gallo, Faried, Hickson
Hickson with the oop, and it's a four-point game. Spurs just cannot put the Nuggets down.
And promptly turns it over with a terrible cross-court pass, leading to Hickson dunk. Spurs 10-point lead cut to three after 1, 32-29.
Nuggets have their hands full trying to stop Alexis Ajinca in low post. Has five inches on defender J.J. Hickson. Ajinca 8 pts in 4Q
OH-Ficial starters Lawson/ Gallo/ Hickson/ Harris and Lauvergne....Hayward/ Favors/ Gobert/ Ingles/ Exum
Denver, I'm told, has been pushing an offer of J.J. Hickson/JaVale McGee for B-Lopez. Nets have so far been firm in their refusal to take it
