KK, up until last night, had played really bad and was looking like a deer in headlights. I think Karl had to make a change up - it just took him a little longer to figure out what change.
McGee was key for the Nuggets getting off to a good start. He brought energy and was physical and gave them brief inside scoring. I believe he took Bogut out of his game.
KK got his mojo back last night and was really good as a bench player. I think this is the way to go through the series. McGee can match up with Bogut for short stints and KK does well against their bench.
I would like to see a lot less of Andre Miller in this next game, but it won't happen...so I am praying he has a night like game 1.
