KK with the first 13 points for Denver tonight for the Nuggs. If he gets the minutes he could challenge his career high tonight against a small Suns front line.
Kosta finished with 22 points and 10 rebounds in 26 minutes for Denver. I believe that is a career high. Like the rest of the Team, KK has really played well of late, with Denver winning its ninth in a row.

I think it's funny that KK has finally started to flourish in the NBA once he embraced the role of the big man who does the little things to help a team win like set screens and play physical defense, things that more than one observer thought was a misuse of his talents when he was at OSU. His high school coach I'm sure would not approve of the fact that KK is being used as a supporting player. But good for KK to finally find his role and embrace it.
i've stated something similar elsewhere. there was plenty of acrimony from him and his camp in regards to how matta wanted to use him. kosta and co. wanted him to be a face-up 5 that roamed the perimeter and handled the ball. his attitude was poor and stuck it right in matta and our program's eye with the timing of his announcement. in my opinion, i think he deliberately harmed the program. i know i may be wrong, but i know i'm sour about his time at osu.
i'm pleased that he's being used pretty how much how matta intended to use him. heck, his intended role under matta was far more expansive than it is in the nba. i wish him success, but he's not a player i follow.
Teaming up with Conley!
