Michael Malone opened up about the Denver Nuggets’ blowout loss to the Miami Heat (125-105) in the NBA restart.

The head coach of the Nuggets named the late arrivals to the Orlando “bubble” and the issues with the coronavirus as the main reasons for Denver’s poor performance.

“When we did get on that plane on July 7, we were without 8,10 guys,” Malone told reporters, via Mike Singer of the Denver Post.
