MALONE SAYS HAR­RIS PRO­VID­ING “A LIT­TLE BIT OF EV­ERY­THING”

The Denver Post - - SPORTS -

The Nuggets’ of­fense has been on a roll since they went “ex­treme makeover” on their start­ing lineup eight games ago.

A big key to the turn­around has been the per­for­mance of guard Gary Har­ris. Now healthy after miss­ing 20 of the first 25 games, his con­stant move­ment has been a boon for an of­fense that needed an in­jec­tion of mo­tion. What has Har­ris added? “A lit­tle bit of ev­ery­thing,” coach Michael Malone said. “I think him re­turn­ing to the start­ing lineup is not a co­in­ci­dence that we have played very well since he has been back. The de­fense that he brings. The en­ergy and his ath­leti­cism.”
