    Oh, no, we suck again.

    Good game, guys. Plus, you get to whip Cleveland's behinds again in a few days. I think you guys are getting in the playoffs. Hopefully you can muddy up the Warriors or Rockets series. Play them inside out through Jokic, and slow the game down.

    The western conference is just too stacked with good teams. It may be years before the Nuggets find themselves in the playoffs.....

    The starters looked great on defense for stretches last night. Then Murray and Jokic went out for Plummer and Harris and all the energy went out the door. Marjanovic was ridiculous last night and they just gave up on guarding him opting to trap the ball handler when he set a screen and no one could box him out.

    I think that Murray three at the end should’ve been an and one which would’ve put us up and possibly changed the outcome

    Edit: Paul Millsap is back and isn’t looking incredibly rusty. Unfortunately it gives Trey Lyles a very minimal role and I thought he played well in Millsaps absence

    Both of these are due to the complete joke of a hire we made as HC 3 years ago. We hired a below .500 career coach and expected him to work miracles. I can't remember our record 2 years ago but is he even over .500 in his tenure with the Nuggets? I guarantee you a Mark Jackson, Steve Kerr, Greg Popp, Phil Jackson type would have this team hovering over the 40 win mark. But when people continue to think the keys to Mile high success are run and gun with 0 attention to the defense you aren't going to accomplish much.

    I will excuse the fact that NBA scores across the board seem to be extremely high this year. So we aren't too far off the norm. But you still can't expect to win when allowing 122 points in a home game. It's absolutely atrocious.

    The GK teams could run and gun with the best of them but they could still keep teams between the 100-105 mark. At least until playoffs when they couldn't play half court basketball. But if people want to just continue to watch shootouts for the "excitement" this team will never get over the hump. Quite honestly I'm sick of it.

    I would like to see them turn it around and make the playoffs. But maybe on the bright side if we don't then Malone will be fired.

    Really not too surprised he failed to properly develop Mudiay either. And a better coach is capable of it.

    Yup Jokic 3rd straight triple double, Gary Harris was a stud, and Chandler stepped up big.

    So the Nuggets seem to be getting hot at just the right time. Heading into the break 6 games over .500. But only 1 game up on the 9th seed. And those pesky Jazz are coming.

    I'm not sure 12-12 down the stretch will be good enough in the West this year like it would've been a year ago. I'm thinking more along the lines of 14-10 or 16-8 to make the playoffs. Definitely 16-8 to have a chance to hold onto the 6th seed and avoid the monsters at the top.

    This Jokic guy is pretty good, I think we should keep him

    Now I'm no expert, but methinks that's pretty good.

    Jokic is the only 4th player to do it in the last 50 years

    Magic Johnson, 31
    Grant Hill, 24
    Jason Kidd, 15
    Nikola Jokic, 10
