I won't get this game live - as normal. But hopefully I'll get to watch it before midnight. :D

First back to back of the season. We'd probably see more minutes from our reserves, hopefully they step up.

I think Malone did a good job yesterday managing minutes. Only Jokic (34) and Murray (31) played over 30 minutes. Your team looks fresh.

Great shooting from our starters in 1st half 21-31, but all they are in big minus on +/- thanks to no defense. Murray is out, but Morris playing great offensively 6-7, but with scoring 74 points of course Kings lead 10+. This is not over, even without Murray and -12 on halftime we can beat them.

I would love to see Nnaji on Bagley, he can't do much worse than we have so far.

At this point, just give these occasional 2-3 min that Bol ist getting to Zeke. He doesn't get involved and in those situations I rather see the guy that flashed the better roleplayer skillset.

Little disappointed with MPJs defense today, first time this season he looks completely locked out on that end. Edit: He immediately starts the second half off with 3 good defensive possessions haha. 2nd edit: dude's got to be kidding me, playing a great defensive quarter right after I said that.

Yep, Bagley is taking it to Millsap, who looks MIA

Porter showing why we DON'T want to trade him, putting up efficient monster numbers into the 3rd.

I can't believe we have a 1-3 start of the season.

But at end of the day no reasons for panic. Jokic is in MVP mode, Porter rising, and Murray will be fine.

Maybe better if we overpaid Grant and trade Barton just for cap space without resigning Millsap, because our defense is weak. Maybe Green and Dozier from the bench will make the difference.

NGL this is an all time low for me.

Losing twice to the Kings to start the season is not what teams in the top 4 of the West... hell it's not what a top 8 team in the West does. I don't give a damn if Murray was injured or we are on BTB, pathetic. Hard to believe we went to the WCF.

It is sad Jokic was the one covering Bagley in the 2nd half and running the offense while Millsap was being beat by Holmes. We cannot expect Jokic to take the better big and run the offense and expect him to play 40 minutes a night.

It is not the loses that bug me, it is how we are losing. It is not going to get better without a trade. Barton is not going back to a team 1st guy, Millsap is not suddenly going to get his game back, Bol isn't going to suddenly figure out things. We could be in trouble this year.

I like Campazzo but his game depends on his quickness, Fox is arguably the quickest PG in the league. Having him try to guard Fox and even Halliburton was an obvious mismatch.

That implosion at the end of the 2nd quarter from Porter was bad, I was glad to see him turn it around in the 2nd half.

So much for Malone keeping the minutes off the starters early in the season, he needs to figure out his bench, and I personally think it starts with having Barton sit at the end of it for a couple of games.

Our front office has to do something about PF, people can call MPJ a future PF all they want, but right now Millsap is there and he is washed.

Just wondering if Nuggets trade Barton who you'll blame for all the L's?

No surprise to those of us who have watched the games, but guys are missing their rotations and covering the paint while ignoring the corner 3s or being too far away from the corner to get there. Not a recipe for success in today's NBA.

While Millsap slowing down, MPJ still learning, and Barton not putting in full effort are big problems Malone may need to change our scheme if the front office isn't going to find us a starting defensive PF.
