Mozgov on the other hand is much more inconsistent, IE last night against the Clippers was his best game this season by a wide margin. The last time he came in he had a few TOs and PFs in just a short amount of minutes and was pulled right back.
It is a good situation that Karl has in having a bench that is over ally very consistent. But when you have three 7-footers it's hard deciding who gets the minutes. Mozgov, this season, has been the odd man out. (although that Mozgov/Koufos combination last night was quite interesting)
Now, I'm pretty sure that one handed alley-oop shocked Nuggets fans everywhere. He usually is a high energy guy but no one expected that. I guess when you have Andre Miller lobbing passes EVERYONE can get involved.
Koufos isn't a good defender.
