The Denver Nuggets recently made headlines when it was reported that during Friday night's home game versus the Utah Jazz the franchise broke a huddle by chanting "1,2,3 six weeks!" With close to six weeks left in the NBA's regular season many thought that the Nuggets were already looking forward to a season that has been disastrous however head coach Brian Shaw stated that it wasn't the case.
"I said, probably three or four days ago in practice, that we hadn't won a home game in six weeks," Shaw said. "Which dated back to Jan.14, against the Dallas Mavericks, was the last time we won a home game here, which was six weeks ago. So, the comment that the players made when they got together and said '1, 2, 3, six weeks!' was the players saying 'this is the end of the six weeks, we're going to get a win tonight on our home court and break the six-week losing spell on our home court.' Not six weeks that it's the end of the season.
"Now, coincidentally it does happen to be a little over six weeks from then, that it's the end of the season. But I think our players and the Denver Nuggets as a whole were misrepresented in how that was reported."
