The Nuggets Celebrated the Premiere of Popeye Jones | NBA

Two changing rooms; two environments … While the houston locker room was exploding … with rageIn reverse; it was the explosion of joy to celebrate the first career victory of Popeye Jones; the Nuggets’ one-night stand. Mike Malone in solitary confinement; it was David Adelman who was going to take over; but the Covid-19 does not forgive anyone since four members of the staff are in quarantine; and finally it is Jones who celebrated his first as “Head coach” tonight.

« We were crazy! We throw water. We were happy for him because we have a lot of injured players and somehow we have to compensate with more unity. » explained Facu Campazzo; one of the Rockets executioners.

A great reward for Jones; a former Nuggets player; he returned this summer in Colorado on Mike Malone’s bench to replace Wes Unseld Jr; named Wizards coach.

« I have the privilege of being a part of this franchise. Jones reacted after this victory. “I come here as the only new kid on the block; and the guys are trying to find you … I’m stepping into the heart of a culture; and all of these guys are so good.” They never complain and they give it all the time. As I told you; -You have created an identity and I am lucky to be a part of it. “ »

In isolation; Mike Malone had obviously made a phone call to his assistant to reassure him and give him some advice. -He called me to tell me that he trusted me. He told me to be myself and that I was a positive guy. He told me that he had been a player and that he knew what he was doing. “

Simple words that allow Denver to continue with a third straight win.
