Gallinari Check: Still Shooting Poorly, Even Tough He Has Respite From Metta World Peace

This morning, we wrote about what impact Metta World Peace could have in his Game 7 return to the Lakers. In particular, we focused on Danilo Gallinari’s poor shooting in the series, and Matt Barnes’s defense.

Gallinari is still having a tough go: He’s 0-4 with no free throws through 15 minutes of Game 7. The first quarter action saw MWP guarding him, but Mike Brown has used World Peace on Andre Miller in the second. That’s left Barnes back on Gallinari, and that’s left Denver without production from its stud small forward.

The Nuggets are in the game, but need to get something out of Gallo.
