If Jokic's injury is cleared, Denver without Murray should be favorite vs Dallas without Porzingis in Denver, but Porter finally should start to play like a max-contract guy, while Malone should add Bones to our backup lineup because Mavs bench is one of the most effective in the NBA unlike ours so far.

Nice to see everyone more aggressive, but already 5 turnovers in the first quarter.

Why does every lead evaporate when the 2nd unit comes in ?

It's getting embarrassing. It's nice that Malone is starting to stagger the starters. But it appears that it's not enough.

Nuggets played some of their best basketball in the 2nd until the last two minutes where they got a bit complacent.

What does Finney-Smith give you guys? I haven’t seen him do anything this game.

Nothing for us, perhaps you should check the DAL board... :roll:

Really was good timing to allow Jokic to take off the whole 4th qtr off, give his knee some more rest.

Dallas collapsed and the Nuggets found their shooting touch. Back to backs are tough and the Nuggets took advantage of Dallas' schedule; every team gets a few.
Canned in Denver.

Didn't expect a blowout win against Mavs, but it was nice to see :D

Honestly, I'm shocked at how far the Mavericks have fallen since last season. I remember the two games Nuggets played against them last year and lost both. Granted, no Porzingis but the Nuggets just look way better.

There's a much stiffer test tomorrow against the Wolves, who have played at high level.

Checking into the standings, losing that CLE gimme moves us from the 2nd/3rd seed down to the 8th (Play-in) seed and if Jokic doesn't bang his knees in the UTH game, he goes for 50pts+ and we're undefeated and at the #1 seed. Just goes to show how EVERY game counts and the impact each game can have.
