Kenneth Faried got into early foul trouble and the game eventually got away from him as he finished with eight points, two rebounds and one block in 15 minutes on Monday.

George Karl went small and stuck with a bench unit that was on fire so there's not a whole lot to see here. It's doubtful that Karl wants to mess with Faried so late in the year, but any slippage by Faried during the Nuggets' upcoming trio of three-game weeks is something to keep an eye on. He needs to double-double big on most nights to offset his shooting and sometimes uninspiring defensive numbers.
