Finally comes this info... so Jokic will play, and the Nuggets are favorites to beat Pells in New Orleans.

With both Ingram and Zion out, seems like it should be listed as a gimme game. That said, can't take anything for granted after that last game.

Well, good so far. Both Jokic and Murray scoring at good clips, Green having a strong game off the bench. Never knew how much I missed Green coming off the bench.

So, we let a double-digit lead dwindle down to a 1-pt win.....TOO CLOSE FOR COMFORT, guys !@$^#

Celtics lost their game, so we are just a win away from NBA #1!

A win is a win, but Malone doing some strange errors again and again. 5 minutes before the end Denver leads +9, but then we shoot 5+ threes (all missed) and lost a few balls so Pells take lead with a 10-0 run.. Dozen seconds before the end finally (after 5 minutes) action on Jokic, who scored of course, and we survived NOLA last shot(s). But it is disturbing we almost lost the game where we lead +9 five minutes left vs a team playing without their two best players because of brainless tactics in the last 5 minutes (shooting only 3pts in the last 5 minutes maybe have a sense when you are -15, not when you lead +9 and have the most efficient PF-C duo in the league)!?

Nuggets were also missing a couple of players (MPJ, Bones). Those threes were mostly wide open, that's not a shot you want to skip, but they just couldn't hit, it happens.

The 15 layups was the most disturbing to me
