Nuggets interim coach Melvin Hunt spoke with the media after the game on Friday night. Spoke about his team, and how they approached the Warriors despite the absence of Klay Thompson, Steph Curry, Andrew Bogut and Andre Iguodala. The Nuggets won despite playing sporadically in the third and early fourth quarters and giving up their lead to the starless Dubs.

Danilo Gallinari and Kenneth Faried tied for the team lead in points on Friday with 24. Gallo spoke after the game (he speaks so softly that I had to boost and isolate the audo … still faint. Sorry about that). It’s interesting to see the change in the locker room after each subsequent game under Melvin Hunt. People are positive and basically cheerful. Owe much of that to winning, but also much of that to the way that their coach wants them to play. Gallo, Faried and Wilson Chandler have most obviously benefited the most from this change (Gallo’s health improving also has greatly contributed)
