Rejoice, Internet: your favorite player, JaVale McGee, will make his first start for the Denver Nuggets tonight when the team travels to the United Center to face the Chicago Bulls.
So the #Nuggets starters will be these: Ty Lawson, Arron Afflalo, Wilson Chandler, Kenneth Faried and JaVale McGee— Chris Dempsey (@dempseypost) March 26, 2012
McGee was acquired at the trade deadline on March 15 as part of a three-team trade that sent longtime Nuggets center Nene to the Washington Wizards.
McGee has played in three games for the Nuggets, but this will be his first start. The 24-year old center has played well in 25 minutes per night during the first three games of his Denver tenure. In his Nuggets debut, McGee dunked home a missed free throw in the final seconds to give Denver a 116-115 win over the Detroit Pistons. In his last game, a loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday, McGee finished with 13 points, 11 rebounds, and two blocks.
