Maybe this will make Kenneth Faried feel better about his game this season.
Denver picked up another win and got over .500 but in a tight 103-101 game they needed every bucket — and every block. Utah likes to try to throw lobs to 7’2″ Rudy Gobert — because he’s 7’2″ with a freakish wingspan — or at least get him rolling to the rim and they try that here. But Faried is waiting and sends it back.
Then Faried hustles down the court, gets the offensive board and sets up the good-look three. That kind of energy and effort is what Faried brings, that is his value.
