Karl doesn't believe his Nuggets were that far off on defense. He says his breakdown of the game tape had Durant and Westbrook going a combined 18 for 25 on jump shots. And 14 of the made baskets came with a Denver player's hand in their face.
Those are exactly the kind of shots Karl wants Denver's defense to force.
So, Karl's message headed into Game 2 Wednesday night in Oklahoma City is not to overreact.
