Al-Farouq Aminu was awful in Monday's Game 1 loss to the Nuggets, scoring two points on 1-of-5 shooting with eight rebounds, two steals and a block.
Aminu was dominated by Paul Millsap in the post throughout the first quarter and couldn't do anything with the ball on offense. He committed three turnovers in 28 minutes of action and failed to hit a 3-pointer or record an assist. The Blazers are going to need him and Moe Harkless (two points, four assists, two steals and six fouls) to figure out a way to guard Paul Millsap and make an impact on the offensive end if they're going to win this series.
