Timofey Mozgov is averaging 16.5 points and 17.5 rebounds over the past two games as his numbers are up across the board in his third full season with the Denver Nuggets. "He's getting an opportunity and he's making the most of it," Brian Shaw said. "He puts you on the court. He trusts in you," Mozgov said of Shaw. "It's better. It's simple." "He found out pretty quickly what we were asking him to do, and he's going out and doing it," Shaw said. "Set good screens, roll hard to the basket, rim-run on a miss; if you don't get the rebound, you should be the first one down getting good position. And we'll throw the ball inside to you if you do those things. Offensively he's put himself in the right positions to make the plays we need him to make, and defensively his size gives us a different dimension."

Prior to a doctor’s intervention, Dwight Howard was eating ‘the equivalent of 24 Hershey bars a day’ via candy and soda (Ball Don't Lie)
Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard was hit with a shocking diagnosis during his lone season with the Los Angeles Lakers last year. According to a physician working with the team’s medical staff, Howard was consuming “the equivalent of 24 Hershey bars a day” because of all the candy and glucose-rich carbonated soda he was drinking. Dr. Cate Shanahan, in a fascinating feature by CBS Sports’ Ken Berger , described her shock at Howard’s alarming levels of glucose in his system, telling CBS that she became concerned because Howard’s sluggish play and blood work “reminded me of patients who have pre-diabetes and neurological problems because of how sugar impacts the nervous system.” A subsequent blood test revealed frightening amounts of glucose in his system. And before you dump on the often immature Howard for continuing to gorge on sweets and soda well into his mid-to-late 20s, have some compassion and understand that Dwight showed all the signs of a sugar addict, someone who needed help more than he needed a lock on the pantry drawer. From Berger’s report :
