The Nuggets averaged 15.3 miscues per game, sixth most in the league and second most of any team that qualified for the postseason (Boston averaged 15.6). Although laden with offensively gifted players, Denver won't reach its true scoring potential until it learns how to protect the ball better.
With no picks in the first round for the fourth straight year, Denver will spend the offseason concentrating on retaining some of its key free agents. Starter Dahntay Jones as well as key bench players Andersen, Kleiza and Anthony Carter are all free agents to be. The Nuggets have a team option on Kleiza for the relative bargain price of $2.7 million that they'll likely exercise. That leaves them with about $6 million left under the luxury tax line to work out deals for Andersen, Jones and Carter.
