Asked about his level of frustration with the non-call, Gallinari simply grinned and said, “I’ll let the people watch the replay and make their own judgment.” Shaw, however, steamed. “It’s frustrating when night-in and night-out all of those kind of calls go against us,” he said. “And the explanation of i changes all the time, when we get an explanation. Or they admit that they made a mistake after the fact when it’s already cost us a game.” Denver Post

Nuggets coach Brian Shaw said he plans no changes to the team's new shootaround policy after point guard Ty Lawson's arrest last Friday. "I didn't just wake up one day and say 'We're just going to move shootaround back' with nothing behind it," Shaw said. "There was research done. There were studies. There's science behind sleep patterns, recovery time. It had nothing to do with alcohol or hanging out or anything else. And so I've been slowly but surely studying some of these things and talking to some of the leading researchers in the area." Denver Post

Nuggets starting point guard Ty Lawson steered clear of any extensive comments concerning his early Friday morning arrest on suspicion of drinking and driving when he returned to the team Saturday. Lawson said he "apologized to the team," but the details of what he said stays between him "and the team." Lawson also met with Nuggets coach Brian Shaw. "I talked to him," Shaw said.

General Manager David Griffin was trying to trade for Timofey Mozgov long before he hired David Blatt as coach. His quest for the 7-foot-1 Russian began within weeks of Griffin replacing Chris Grant as general manager on Feb. 6, 2014. But Denver was not interested. That changed three weeks ago when Griffin turned Dion Waiters and a future Memphis first-round pick into J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert and Mozgov -- it took two trades in three days.

Under the condition of anonymity, some Cavs players admitted that they had lost faith because of the team's lack of depth. A handful of players said they came to realize the roster, as it was constructed before the trades, wasn't equipped to go any further than the second round, if that. One player said the frustration of an "unbalanced roster probably contributed" to the players' poor body language and effort level. Another said "it was never Coach [David] Blatt's fault." The consensus was that their confidence had faltered considerably more because of the shallowness of the team's reserve talent than Blatt. Cleveland Plain Dealer

The Brooklyn Nets recently tried, unsuccessfully, to deal center Brook Lopez, which led to the franchise putting the brakes on the whole trading him concept in total. But when those wheels get back turning again — and they will — there will be no shortage of suitors, and the Nuggets are expected to be among them. They’ve already made one run at it, but were rebuffed along with everyone else by the Nets in favor of negotiations with Oklahoma City, and those talks got intense before breaking down. But there remains plenty of time before the Feb. 19 trade deadline, and the Nuggets have a lot to offer if they want to gamble. The question is how much to put on the table to entice Brooklyn to get into serious talks. There are inherent risks: Lopez has a player option after this season, so there would have to be some sort of assurances from his representation that he wouldn’t just walk and leave the Nuggets lighter on assets and out one big-time center at year’s end.
