(Colo.) - Nuggets feeling good about future
DENVER (AP) - The Denver Nuggets are one-and-done in the NBA playoffs again. Only this ouster has a much different feel.
The young team grew up in a hurry in taking the star-studded Los Angeles Lakers to the brink before losing a thrilling Game 7 at the Staples Center on Saturday night.
They even impressed Kobe Bryant, who said the Nuggets "showed a lot of heart."
Along with plenty of promise.
Ty Lawson established himself as a bona fide difference-maker and joining him with flashes of brilliance at various points were rookie Kenneth Faried, speedster Corey Brewer, forward Danilo Gallinari, big man JaVale McGee, guard Arron Afflalo and center Timofey Mozgov.
Al Harrington and Andre Miller provided the veteran leadership, and they nearly pulled off the upset.
