“We’re not going to have a go-to-guy as much as we’re going to have a go-to-team,” Nuggets coach George Karl said. “Every guy on the court I think can make a shot.”

Over the past two seasons, Karl repeatedly has shared his philosophy that defensive stops, responsible rebounding and unselfish play are as important to closing games as an ice-veined shot maker.
