Thursday was a day of fun. Yes fun. But it started out with a not-so-fun film session which highlighted the horrors of the Nuggets' 98-79 exhibition loss at home to the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday night. Learning the lessons and putting them to bed were the orders of the day. And then getting shots up — and hopefully in — became a top priority. Not lost on the coaching staff is the scary shooting of the Nuggets 39.6 percent from the field and 27 percent from the 3-point line through five games. "Today was more of a fun conditioning day" first-year Nuggets coach Brian Shaw said. "We did a lot of shooting a lot of competitive one-on-one defense. But it was mainly shooting and conditioning getting up a lot of shots. Just trying to get confidence in their shots." Only five Denver players are shooting better than 40 percent. Among the players who have attempted at least 10 3-pointers only Quincy Miller is hitting at least 40 percent. He's at 41.7 percent. Ty Lawson (36.4) and Nate Robinson (37.5) are however respectable from beyond the arc. Both are set to play Friday at Chicago in the Nuggets' final preseason game.
