“When he tweeted that, I definitely had to say something just to let him know, which I know he knows, everybody has his back,” Morris said. “Just let him know that I could have been better.
… Just had to let him know don’t put all that stress and everything on your shoulders. You got other guys with you that could have stepped up and made the game easier.” Nuggets head coach Michael Malone agreed with Morris. “I never want one player taking the blame because the reality is, when we win, we win as a team, and when we lose, we lose as a team,” Malone said. “Did Jamal play great against Golden State? No. But he wasn’t the only one. It’s a noble act by Jamal, but more importantly, I think it’s great when a guy says, ‘You know what, I didn’t play my best so I am going to come out and have a better game the next one.’”
