The Denver Nuggets suffered an ugly 114-102 loss against the visiting Philadelphia Sixers. Brian Shaw said it was his fault the team has been so awful of late (losers of 8 in a row), and veteran guard Andre Miller yelled at his coach in the second half for not being allowed off the pine — the DNP-CD of his NBA career. Per the Denver Post:
Miller yelled about the disrespect he felt he was being shown by sitting. And if he was being disrespected, he’d do the same to the Nuggets’ first-year head coach.
“There’s a time and place for everything,” Shaw said. “In the middle of the arena in front of everyone … I just tried to calm it down.”
Asked if Miller understood the reasons for his one-game seat on the bench, Shaw said, “You’ll have to ask him.”
But by that time, Miller had already left.
