The taste from the Nuggets’ latest ugly loss was so bitter, coach Brian Shaw couldn’t get his mouth to say any words to his team afterward.

“I don’t feel like we came and competed from the very beginning of the game,” Shaw said Thursday. “And I wish in these kinds of situations, I’d have more respect if guys just told me they didn’t feel like playing tonight from the start. I’m just sick and tired of one night getting a certain kind of effort, (and) the next night we don’t show up, we don’t compete.”

“I feel like I get thrown under the bus when we come out with performances like that,” Shaw said. “So any questions that you have in terms of our effort, where it was, why we played the way we played tonight, those are good questions to ask them because I’d like to know the answer to that too.”
