I’m not giving up on them.” Still, the Nuggets 3-point shooting remains a mystery (or, perhaps, an example of how the lockout-shortened training camp has affected actual games). The Nuggets are second in the NBA with 104.4 points per game but TWENTY-FIFTH in 3-point shooting (26.4 percent).

Indeed, Gallo is 3-for-23 this season from 3, while Rudy is 6-for-25. And Arron Afflalo, who missed much of camp during his contract negotiations, is 3-for-14.
