Issel takes surprise leave of absence


December 23rd, 2001 by aswitzer

I showed up at the game expecting to see Issel back coaching the Nuggets for the Warriors game. Surprise – Issel requests an indefinite leave of absence just hours before the game, leaving assistant Mike Evans to coach his 5th straight game.

Most of the Nuggets were shocked, and they played that way, losing to the lowly Warriors. On a positive note, James Posey had a career high 33 points, but it wasn’t enough to get the Nuggets back on the winning track before the holidays.

Happy Holidays everyone!
