J.R. Smith to Become a Starter for Nuggets?

Like Stella, Dahntay Jones might have lost his groove.

Before last Tuesday’s game against Houston, Nuggets coach George Karl said, "I can’t deny we’ve talked about J.R.” Smith possibly replacing Jones as the starting shooting guard. But Karl said there was no need at that time to make a move with the Nuggets winning, and that Jones had been in a "groove” starting.

With the Nuggets set to play host to Portland on Monday night, Karl no doubt would like to see a movie entitled, "How Dahntay Got His Groove Back.”
