Michael Malone laments lack of fans at Nuggets home games

Michael Malone Nuggets

The Denver Nuggets are 14-24 this season and only 6-11 at home, so it’s understandable why they haven’t had a ton of fan support. Regardless, Nuggets head coach Michael Malone wishes there were more fans at home games supporting the team.

“The reality is we do not have a great home court advantage,” Malone said prior to a home loss to the Hornets Sunday night, via BSN Denver. “When we do have great fan support or great fan attendance, they are usually here for the other team and that’s the reality right now. We have to build this up to where our fans are excited enough to come and support us, and we’ve not done that yet. So, that is definitely on us as a team and a franchise.”

Malone also noted that the fans help give players support they can build off of.

“It’s a challenge for us to find a way to generate our own energy, because the reality is that we do not have a great home-court advantage,” Malone said. “We have to build this up where our fans are excited enough to come here to support us.”

Having the fans supporting the team would be nice, but it’s not going to happen until the team shows greater signs of improvement. They had a six-game losing streak recently and an eight-game losing streak earlier in the season. Nothing will kill fan interest faster than stretches like that.

Maybe if the Nuggets add another young player to pair with Emmanuel Mudiay and Danilo Gallinari, more fans will start showing up to watch a team that’s last in the league in attendance.
