Ty Lawson and Jordan Hamilton scored 15 points apiece, and the Denver Nuggets beat the Los Angeles Lakers 97-88 Sunday night in their preseason debut under new coach Brian Shaw.
Obviously, Denver Nuggets general manager Tim Connelly was only kidding and not trying to put this kind of pressure on his new coach.
The Denver Nuggets officially introduced Brian Shaw as their head coach on Tuesday.
At long last, Brian Shaw is getting his first chance to coach an NBA team. He’s agreed to succeed George Karl as coach of the Denver Nuggets.
During pregame ceremonies at the Pepsi Center Tuesday night Nuggets coach George Karl was presented a golden ball trophy to commemorate his 1,000th win.
