It's only the first game of the preseason but Juancho Hernangomez tried to give Mike Malone more reasons to play him this season. The third-year forward, who played 11 minutes a game and averaged 3.3 points in 25 games last season, drilled six-of-his-first-nine shots, including five-of-seven 3-pointers.

Even without the injured Gary Harris, the Denver Nuggets' offense looked as potent as advertised. Denver scored 66 points in the first half, shot 51% from the field and buried eight 3-pointers. The Lakers did give up too many open 3-point shots. Denver moved the ball well as nine of the 10 Nuggets who played in the first half registered at least one assist.

The Nuggets found condensation on the floor here in San Diego during their morning shootaround. But Denver coach Mike Malone just said the floor is safe and good to go now for tonight. He checked the floor before the game and talked to Lakers coaches, who said their players didn't experience any issues with the floor.
