Danilo Gallinari had a horrible game in the Denver Nuggets Game 7 loss, but its not completely his fault. The 23-year-old forward missed eight of his nine field-goal attempts in the deciding game, scoring just three points in nearly 26 minutes of play and turning the ball over four times. It was a bad scene.
Worst part, Coach Karl placed Gallinari on the bench for the last 2 quarters. Denver`s coach didn`t feel like he could trust a player the team just signed to a four-year, $42 million extension. Gallinari isnt a star player nor does the Denver Nuggets have any, remembering when Carmelo Anthony was traded. The frustration is indeed understandable; the team plays with chemistry and battle-hardened spirit.
He`s a guy who scores about 16 points per 36 minutes, who`s capable of popping for 30 on any given night but is much more likely to score half that. He shoots 42 percent from the floor, is pretty accurate from long range and very accurate from the foul line, has become a more willing passer, is getting better at moving his feet and using his length on defense, and doesn`t rebound that well for either a 6-foot-10 guy or a garden-variety small forward. There`s no shame in that he`s a good NBA rotation player, he`s certainly useful, and he could become great one day but right now, it`s the truth.
