The defense will be key thing this season. Scoring 61 points at halftime is just great (good support to MVP Jokic from Howard and Morris), but today no defense against an offensively very potent opponent, so they scored ridiculous 75 points already.

In all 9 first wins this season opponents scored under 100 points, but today Minnesota scored 108 already after 3 quarters. Especially 3pt defense has not worked with so many wide open 3pt shoots so their starters shoot 19-36 including Edwards all-NBA 2021-22 season's high 10 (from just 14 attempts)!

Talking about 3pt shooting, just when Marcus Howard started to prove why he come to Denver as a 3pt specialist (he has 3p% fantastic 13-25 for bench player in the past 3 games) we probably lost him for long period today. Maybe Denver should check something about the team's medical staff? We are lucky that the Nuggets franchise player has such a game style ("slow" and without too much jumping) that prevents him from injuries, but a number of (hard) injured Nuggets players in the past 3-4 seasons is way too big even for NFL teams standards.

It was one of those games where the other team just got crazy hot and there was nothing you could do to stop them.

The most dangerous job in the NBA is to be Denver Nuggets player , another seems to be season ending injury :-? The nuggets are poorly constructed team, too many undersized players in the back court , there is no size in the front court when Jokic is out. Denver keeps losing games at home which was its stronghold in the previous seasons. Denver have to improve this roster by the trade deadline or this season will be completely lost very soon. Its too bad Denver's organization is wasting Jokic 's great play.
