 • The Nuggets had 12 players score at least six points in the victory over SAC on 1/4. It was just the second time in franchise history this has been accomplished
    (only other time was 3/22/05 vs. Washington).

LAWSON DELIVERING IN PLAYOFFS
Ty Lawson has been the postseason catalyst for Denver, particularly in their three wins of the series. Lawson is averaging 18.2 points, 2.2 rebounds, 6.0 assists and
1.17 steals while shooting .500 (45-90 FG) from the field.
       Lawson has scored 20+ in three games this series, including exploding for a career playoff-high 32 points to go with five rebounds and six assists in the Game 6
win on 5/10 at Pepsi Center. Lawson was lights out in the game, going 13-of-18 (.722) from the field and 5-of-6 (.833) from three-point range. His five threes set a
new playoff career-high (previous was two).
       Furthermore, Lawson has been exceptional when it comes to taking care of the ball. He has dished out 36 assists to just six turnovers in the series for a 6:1
ratio.

JAVALE THE DIFFERENCE MAKER
JaVale McGee came up huge in Denver’s Game 5 win at LAL on 5/8, posting 21 points (9-12 FG), 14 rebounds and two blocks in 33 minutes off the bench. He
became just the fourth Nugget since 1986 to post 21+ points and 14+ rebounds in a playoff game (along with Marcus Camby in 2004, LaPhonso Ellis in
1994 and Fat Lever in 1990).
      This performance came just two games after posting his first career playoff double-double with 16 points, 15 rebounds and three blocks in Game 3 vs. LAL on
5/4. For the series, McGee is averaging 10.4 points, 9.6 rebounds and 3.20 blocks per game while shooting .512 (21-41 FG) from the field in 25.9 minutes per game.
His 3.20 blocks are good for fourth in the postseason.
      Additionally, JaVale has posted a +16 this series in the +/- category. He has also been a disruption to Andrew Bynum, who has been a +1 for the Lakers when
McGee is on the bench but a -15 with McGee on the court.

MIX SIX
The Nuggets have qualified for the playoffs as the No. 6 seed three times in their NBA history, advancing out of the first round once. Denver defeated the Phoenix
Suns 2-1 in a Western Conference mini-series in 1983 before falling to San Antonio in the Western Conference semifinals. The Nuggets were swept 3-0 by Phoenix
in the first round in 1989, and they lost to San Antonio 4-1 in the opening round of the 2007 playoffs. The Spurs would go on to win the 2007 NBA Finals.

BACK AT IT AGAIN
The 2012 NBA Playoffs represent the sixth time ever that the Nuggets and Lakers will be meeting in the postseason, with Denver having gone 0-5 in the previous five
series meetings. The most recent meeting came during the 2009 Western Conference Finals, with Los Angeles winning that series 4-2 to advance to the NBA Finals
and win the 2009 NBA Championship. This year marks the fourth first-round meeting between these teams, with the others coming during the 1979 Playoffs (Lakers
won 2-1), 1987 Playoffs (Lakers won 3-0) and the 2008 Playoffs (Lakers won 4-0). Entering this postseason, the Nuggets own an all-time record of just 4-17 against
the Lakers in the playoffs (2-8 at home and 2-9 on the road).
      Denver is making its 23rd postseason appearance since joining the NBA in 1976, while the Lakers will be making their 34th appearance during the same time
frame since the NBA/ABA merger in 1976. Of their 22 previous appearances, the Nuggets have advanced beyond their opening series seven times (7-15), whereas
the Lakers have done so 26 times in their 33 attempts (26-7).
      The last time the Nuggets won a first round series without having homecourt advantage was during the 1994 Playoffs, defeating Seattle 3-2 as a No. 8 seed. On
the other hand, the last time the Lakers lost a first round series despite owning homecourt advantage was in the 1996 postseason, losing to Houston 3-1 as the No. 4
seed in the 4/5 matchup.

THE RESILIENCY OF YOUTH
With an average age of 25.6 years old, the Nuggets are the second-youngest team in the NBA Playoffs, behind only the Philadelphia 76ers (25.1). In fact, Denver’s
starting five of Ty Lawson (23), Arron Afflalo (26), Kosta Koufos (23), Kenneth Faried (22) and Danilo Gallinari (23) has an average age of 23.6. That lineup was
together nine times during the regular season, and the Nuggets went 8-1 in those games.

THREE-POINT THREAT TY
Nuggets guard Ty Lawson was lights out from long range over his final six contests, connecting on 14-of-20 attempts (.700) and making multiple threes in four of
those games.
       Lawson started this hot streak by going 2-for-2 at HOU on 4/16 and followed that up two games later by going 5-of-5 from beyond the arc at PHX on 4/21. He is
averaging 22.1 points per game during this stretch.
       This isn’t the first time that Ty Law has gotten ridiculously hot from three-point range – last season the third-year pro made his first 10 three-point attempts
(setting an NBA record by becoming first player to make his first 10 threes in a game) before missing one at the buzzer in the third quarter vs. MIN on 4/9/11.

WINNING ON THE ROAD
The Nuggets finished the season with road wins at Oklahoma City and Minnesota to move to 18-15 on the road and                  ALL-TIME WINNING ROAD RECORDS
earned themselves just the third winning road record in franchise history – all within the last six years.                       SEASON           ROAD RECORD

NUGGETS CLINCH
The Denver Nuggets defeated the Phoenix Suns 118-107 on the road on 4/21 to clinch a playoff spot for the ninth consecutive season – tying the franchise record for
most consecutive playoff appearances. The only other time the Nuggets earned nine straight playoff berths was from 1981-1990 under the watch of Doug Moe.
      The Nuggets are one of just three teams to make the playoffs in each of the last nine seasons, along with Dallas and San Antonio.
      The Nuggets have reeled off nine straight winning seasons, continuing the longest streak of non-losing seasons in team history (previous best was three
straight non-losing seasons on two occasions.
      Additionally, it is George Karl’s eighth-straight playoff appearance with Denver, and his 20th consecutive non-losing season – 2nd in NBA history to
Phil Jackson (21 straight non-losing seasons).

TY’S ON A TEAR
Ty Lawson missed the last two games heading into the All-Star break with a left ankle sprain, but he returned with a vengeance in the 31 games since. Not only did
he win his first career Western Conference Player of the Week award on March 5, Lawson led Denver to a 20-11 record, scored 20+ points 15 times and averaged
17.3 ppg, 4.1 rpg, 7.0 apg and 1.32 spg during this stretch. From 12/29 – 1/5, he became the first Nugget to average 19+ points, 7+ rebounds and 12+ assists
in a four-game span since Fat lever in November 1987 (he averaged 20.3 ppg, 8.8 rpg and 12.3 apg).
      During that four-game span, Lawson combined to hand out 48 assists while turning the ball over only seven times. He is the first Nugget to have 48+ assists
while committing seven-or-fewer turnovers over a four-game span since Nick Van Exel in March 2000 (had 48 assists and five turnovers). He is one of just four
Nuggets in team history to accomplish this feat (Van Exel in 2000, Mark Jackson in 1996 and Michael Adams in 1990 are the others).
      Lawson also posted 22 points, seven rebounds and a career-high 15 assists while committing just one turnover in the win at HOU on 3/2, becoming just the
sixth Nuggets to post 20+ points, 7+ rebounds and 15+ assists in the same game since 1985, and the first to do so since Mark Jackson on 1/20/97 vs. NJN
(21 points, seven rebounds and 22 assists). He is the first Nugget to have 20+ points and 15+ assists in the same game since Allen Iverson on 3/17/07 vs.
PHX (44 points and 15 assists).

MANIMAL MAKES HISTORY
Kenneth Faried had a game for the ages when he squared off against the Warriors for the second time in 48 hours on 4/9. He had one of his more lackluster games
of his rookie season on 4/7 at Golden State, and wanted to set the record straight two nights later.
      The All-Rookie (and ROY) candidate erupted for a career-high 27 points (12-18 FG) and a career-high 17 rebounds (seven offensive) in just 24:07 minutes of
play. The Manimal became the first player in the shot clock era (implemented by NBA in 1954-55 season) to record 27+ points and 17+ rebounds in 25-
minutes or less.
      Additionally, Faried is the first Nuggets rookie to post 27+ points and 17+ boards in the same game since Dikembe Mutombo on 2/3/92 at MIN (he had 39 points
and 21 rebounds). It is the first time any Nugget has accomplished this feat since Marcus Camby registered 33 points and 20 rebounds on 12/2/05 at PHX. Lastly, his
27 points is the most by a Nuggets rookie since Carmelo Anthony had 30 on 4/10/04 at POR.

FARIED’S “PERFECT” GAME
From Elias Sports Bureau: Rookie Kenneth Faried was perfect from the floor (5-for-5) and from the free-throw line (8-for-8) while grabbing 16 rebounds in the
Nuggets' 98-91 win over the Celtics. Only two other players in the NBA's shot-clock era (since 1954-55) have made all of their field-goal and free-throw
attempts (minimum: 5 each) while recording at least 15 rebounds in a game. Charles Oakley shot 6-for-6 from the floor and 5-for-5 from the line with 24
rebounds for the Knicks against the Charlotte Hornets on April 20, 1991. And Brendan Haywood was 6-for-6 both from the floor and from the line for the Wizards
against the Magic on January 8, 2010.
     Additionally, It was the first time a Nuggets player has scored 18+ points while shooting 100 percent from both the field and the free throw line (min.
five attempts and eight attempts, respectively) since Danny Schayes (7-of-7 FG, 9-of-9 FT, 23 points) on 3/6/1990 vs. the Charlotte Hornets. He also
became the first Nuggets rookie to post 18+ points and 16+ rebounds in a game since LaPhonso Ellis (18 points, 17 rebounds) vs. LAC on 4/18/93.

GET BUCKETS
The Nuggets got excellent production from their bench all season long, but one reserve in particular stood out: Al “Buckets” Harrington. He has been the leader
coming off the bench, scoring 15+ points 28 times (20+ ten times) and averaged 14.2 points, 6.0 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 0.89 steals per game.
     Furthermore, his 14.5 scoring average off the bench was 4th in the NBA and his 6.2 rebounds was 2nd among all players who came off the bench in
20+ games this season.
     Big Al recently tallied 20 points and 10 rebounds in the win vs. New Orleans on 3/9 and went off for a season-high 31 points to go with nine rebounds in an OT
win vs. Minnesota on 2/20. He posted 29 points (10-16 FG, 5-8 3FG) and seven rebounds off the bench in a win over Washington on 1/20. It was his 31st career
game with five-plus threes and it was the first time he’s had those numbers since he posted 37 points and seven boards on Feb. 2, 2010 at Washington. In fact,
Harrington has been lights out when playing in the Nation’s capital, shooting .667 (16-24 3FG) from deep in his last three and .490 (25-51 3FG) from long
range in 17 career games at Washington. Just one night later Al chipped in with 24 points and 11 rebounds in the double OT win at New York on 1/21.

A HOMECOURT HAVEN
Nuggets coach George Karl says it again and again to his team: WE MUST WIN OUR HOME GAMES. With one of                     BEST HOME RECORD SINCE START OF 2007-08
the best homecourt advantages in the entire NBA, the Nuggets own the second best home record in the NBA                  TEAM                      W        L         %

 HEAD COACH GEORGE KARL
Record with Denver: 366-232 (8th season)
Overall Record: 1074-731 (23rd season)

NBA coaching legend George Karl, who signed a contract extension with Denver on March 8, 2011, was introduced as the 19th head coach in Nuggets history on Jan. 27, 2005 and has
since overseen one of the most successful eras in team history. In just seven-plus seasons, Karl’s 366 wins are already the second-most by a coach in Denver’s NBA history, while his
.611 winning percentage is unmatched. His run of seven-straight postseason appearances is the second-longest in Nuggets history to Doug Moe’s nine-consecutive (1982-90). Denver
joins Dallas and San Antonio as the only NBA teams to have made eight-straight playoff appearances.
        The seventh-winningest coach in NBA annals, Karl has amassed 1,074 career wins in his 23-plus seasons in the NBA, including a streak of 20-straight non-losing seasons –
trailing only Phil Jackson (21, 1989-90-2010-11) in NBA history. In fact, of the six other men to have won 1,000+ career games, only three: Jackson, Riley and Jerry Sloan have a better
winning percentage. He has also notched 75 career playoff victories, good for 12th all-time. He has earned 10 Coach of the Month honors, which is tied for the fourth-most in NBA history.
        The 2009-10 season was one of highs and lows for Karl. He helped lead Denver to an overall record of 53-29, earning the Nuggets their second-straight Northwest Division title
and their third-straight 50-win campaign. In the process, Karl became the first coach in the team’s NBA history to post consecutive 50-win seasons. He also recorded his 18th straight non-
losing season, third only to Riley (19, 1981-02) and Jackson (19, 1989-present) in NBA history. He also earned NBA Coach of the Month honors for the month of January and was the
head coach of the Western Conference at the 2010 NBA All-Star Game in Dallas.
        Unfortunately, Karl’s 2009-10 season was cut short because of throat and neck cancer. He made the diagnosis public two days after the All-Star Game but coached the Nuggets
for three weeks while going through radiation and chemotherapy treatment. Karl did not return to the bench after a March 16 victory over Washington, and Denver went 7-7 in its final 14
regular-season games and lost to the Utah Jazz in six games during the first round of the playoffs
        Karl has had great success ever since taking the helm of the Nuggets back in 2005. In his first season in Denver, 2004-05, Karl engineered one of the greatest turnarounds in NBA
history. When assuming head coaching duties in January, the Nuggets were 17-25 and stood in 11th place in the Western Conference – a full six games out of the playoffs. Karl led the
Nuggets to a 32-8 (.800) record and a seventh seed in the postseason, while that winning percentage remains the best in NBA history for a midseason coaching replacement that
coached at least 20 games. He was named Western Conference Coach of the Month for February and March and finished fifth in voting for NBA Coach of the Year during the 2004-05
season. In 2005-06, Karl guided an injury-riddled Nuggets team to 44 wins and a Northwest Division title – the club’s first division crown since 1987-88. He became the fifth coach in NBA
history to lead at least three different teams to division titles (also Milwaukee and Seattle). In 2006-07, Karl led the Nuggets to a 45-37 mark, including a franchise-record 22 road wins.
The Nuggets finished with the sixth-best record in the Western Conference - their highest finish since 1988-89 (sixth). In 2007-08, Karl led the Nuggets to the third-highest win total in
team history with 50 wins. During the 2008-09 season, Karl guided the Nuggets to arguably the best season in team history. With an overall record of 54-28, Denver claimed the
Northwest Division title and tied the team record for most wins in a season. In the 2009 NBA Playoffs, Karl coached the No. 2 seeded Nuggets to their first Western Conference Finals
appearance since the 1984-85 season before falling to the eventual NBA Champion Los Angeles Lakers in six games.
        Prior to joining the Nuggets, Karl served as head coach for the Milwaukee Bucks (1998-03), the Seattle SuperSonics (1991-98), the Golden State Warriors (1986-88) and the
Cleveland Cavaliers (1984-86). During his coaching career, Karl’s players have made 27 All-Star appearances, earned 16 All-NBA recognitions, made 11 All-Defensive teams and have
won two Defensive Player of the Year awards.

KARL JOINS NBA’S PRESTIGIOUS “1000 CLUB”
With the 123-116 win at Toronto on 12/10, Nuggets head coach George Karl earned his 1,000th career regular season win. With an overall coaching record of 1074-731, Karl is only the
seventh coach in NBA history to win 1,000 career games. In 22-plus NBA seasons, he currently ranks seventh on the all-time NBA wins list, while his .594 career winning percentage
ranks as the fourth-best among his fellow 1,000-game winners. With the resignations of both Larry Brown (Charlotte) and Jerry Sloan (Utah) earlier this season, Karl now stands as the
second-winningest head coach still active in the NBA today, trailing only the Lakers’ Phil Jackson.
       Compared to the first six members of the 1000 Club, Karl required the fourth fewest total games to reach 1,000 wins. Additionally, he also became the third youngest coach in NBA
history to win his 1,000th career game. The lists below were compiled with the help of the Elias Sports Bureau.
