Kenneth Faried (back) returned to action in the Nuggets’ 97-88 loss to the Mavs, scoring nine points on 3-of-7 shooting with 11 rebounds and two blocks in 22 minutes.
Faried was one of the few Nuggets to produce numbers tonight. Emmanuel Mudiay was another with 16 points on 5-of-11 shooting, six boards, seven assists, one steal, one block and 5-of-6 makes from the foul line. Everybody else had a night to throw in the circular bin, and for a low-end asset like Darrell Arthur (nine points, one assist, one three, 26 minutes) it is probably time to cut bait with the schedule advantage almost a non-factor at this point.
