With George Karl undergoing treatment for throat cancer, Adrian Dantley is acting as head coach for the Nuggets.
"All I can do is just work as hard as I can, do the best I can, and win basketball games" said Dantley. "I think I get nervous like I was when I was a player. I get nervous before the games, but once the game starts I'm OK."
Said Celtics coach Doc Rivers, "I think they're playing under extreme circumstances right now."
