NBA admits Perkins’ tip was goaltending
Nuggets notes

Nenê, who suffered a right knee bruise after banging up against Perkins’ metal knee brace in the third quarter, didn’t practice Monday. Neither did Arron Afflalo, who missed Game 1 with a left hamstring strain. Nor did Ty Lawson or Raymond Felton, both resting tender ankles. “I think everybody will play except Arron still,” George Karl said. ... In the first playoff game in Oklahoma City last year, the Lakers made their first seven shots – just as Denver did in Game 1. ... Among the main reasons Karl thought Denver lost the game was a 21-for-33 night at the foul line.
