4th best bench (Miami) vs. the 29th best bench (Nuggets)... No Porter as well. Nuggets must start fast.

That was the best first half of basketball the Nuggets have played all year. The defense was superb, only 4 turnovers, 18 assists, and they actually were aggressive and got the foul line. 13 FTs. The bench also held its own against the 4th best bench in the league.

The threes have to start dropping but as long as they're aggressive and get to the foul line they should be able to win this game.

The 3rd quarter coming up is huge.

No big expectations before the start of the game especially didn't expect +15 at halftime vs the red-hot Heat.

The defense is good as usual this season, but this time offense worked perfectly too, especially nice to see Morris performing very well. Adebayo+Lowry+Herro are 2-15 in 1st half, it is not realistic they will be that bad in 2nd half so the team should stay focused in 2nd half despite the big lead already.

A dumb way for the perfect day to be finished. Jokic should learn already to better control himself, especially in games that are practically over. But the league should protect their stars against dirty players like the Morris twins. I guess Joker will not play the very next game in Denver vs Pacers.

Most positive things:
- another superb defensive performance and we put under 100 team which averaging 110+ ppg with notable players Adebayo+Lowry+Herro shoot only 6-30 today
- Jokic another MVP performance with 25-15-10 TD (with monster TS%) before ejection
- Barton with 7-9 threes played how we expected from MPJ for a max contract
- Monte Morris best game of the season
- Team played the best games against the best opponents this season so far (Miami, Utah before Joker injury, Phoenix, Dallas)

Jokic has been the best player in the NBA this season. By a pretty significant margin. I am a bit worried about the looming suspension. Hopefully it's only a game or two.

I don't think he should be suspended at all, and I hope that long term this has the benefit to making the refs and NBA as a whole realize just how bad Jokic has been treated and start giving him a fair whistle. Not to mention putting the NBA as a whole on notice that if you cheap shot Jokic he will standup for himself. Maybe it will stop the dirty shots.

At least Jokic has expressed regret over this incident, haven't heard anything remorseful from Morris. He KNEW what he was doing, he did it out of malice, Jokic's was a reaction out of self-protection. Morris needs to get a bigger suspension than Jokic (who should just be fined IMO)
