Nuggets’ Malone: ‘Our defense is the worst in the NBA’


But to hear Nuggets coach Michael Malone tell it, all hope is lost — and their defense and a void in leadership are to blame.

“It’s a losing proposition,” Malone told reporters after Denver’s 120-113 home loss to the Sacramento Kings, the Nuggets’ third straight defeat and fifth in seven games. “Offense sells tickets; defense wins championships. Right now our defense is the worst in the NBA.”

Malone called the Nuggets’ defense “a joke right now.”
