Very different game in 1st half compared to Minnesota two days ago. Today (so far) Porter's shooting and bench are good, but the defense is very bad. While our offense improved today in general, Denver's 3pt shooting is still just terrible (2-15 vs 7-17 on halftime), and today (in 1st half at least) we have problems with rebounding.

Another terrible performance by the bench. It's getting embarrassing at this point.

It seems that we need MVP numbers from Jokic every night, "just all-star" is not enough for the win vs any decent opponent. Also, we have a problem reaching 100p even in a game where we scored around 60 at halftime.

If MPJ is going to continue to struggle, then Jokic may need to take 20+ shot attempts per game to give this team a chance. The defense is encouraging though. But I can't tell if the defense is actually working or if the other teams are just missing. It seems a lot of teams/players are struggling to start out the season for whatever reason.

Same problem since day one, the Bench has veterans who are taking the opening part of the season off.
Canned in Denver.

If you ask me, Jokic should take 20+ shots every game anyway, even with in-form Porter and healthy Murray! So far this season Jokic takes just 16 FG attempts per game, there are 35 other players which take more shots. That is just wrong.
