Sterling Brown would be the big disappointment so far. Maybe he will heat up at some point, but he is supposed to be a lot better three point shooter than what he has shown this season.

I'll say it again and again, playing KP at 5 unlocks this team.

We need to shed some big man depth to bring in another big 3/4 and find our way to another ball handler and we become a real threat against any team.

Luka was right to complain, they were elbowing him on drives with no calls in the 1st Q, Rivers pushes Powell on the lob, no call, Denver goes down the court and Bullock is called for touch foul, Kidd should get on the refs over these sequences.
Jokic is amazing!
For the love of god, give Sterling Browns minutes to Josh Green, he can't do any worse.

Great win tonight.

Denver at one point held a 13pt lead but we flipped the script.

Sample size.

He's been stone cold but it's on 26 attempts.

The supporting cast is terrible.

Agreed. The team is basically Luka + KP + Brunson + a bunch of zombies at this time.

Brunson is trying to emulate Luka's game, and it's working well for him. I only wish he was 3-4 inches taller... is there a body-stretching machine we can use on him to achieve that growth? It could make him slimmer too. :D

Everyone else needs to step up, a lot. THJ, DFS, Bullock really need to improve everything they are doing on offense: 3-PT shooting, drives to the hoop, off-ball movement.

Luka also needs to lose 20lbs ASAP.

Lets not get ahead of ourselves on KP, he's had a good stretch of games recently, but he's been unavailable or a detriment for too big a chunk as well to excuse

Don’t be overly excited, we are defeating a team who is losing 3 starters, and on back to back. MPJ and Barton have killed in our last time markup with DEN

Anyone who's played basketball in a league knows you need a good runway to get your confidence and momentum on track. Regardless if the Nuggets have players out, it's just how the cards are dealt. The Mavs have had 5 players out due to covid last year and they took every punch. I'll take the win. The young guns need a confidence boost. They'll peak at the right time.
