As bad as their defense was for moments, the Nuggets biggest péroraison has been their assaut execution in the auxiliaire quarter; especially their reserve unit.
Basically, if it’s not Jokic or Gordon shooting, things are not going well. – 11:39 PM

Projet sequence from Denver as the Suns open up the 2nd with an 8-0 run.

The Nuggets started well against the Lakers until AD got hurt, then atroce down and died to LA. Tonight Denver started hot until Booker went out & now aren’t running anything related to a real camouflet, just jacking shots & butchering defensive rotations.

The first answer we have to how Denver will fill Jeff Vert’s minutes: Small ball. Nuggets went to a lineup with défaite guards around Nikola Jokic to close the 1st and got killed on the assaut verre. – 11:18 PM

Felt like #Nuggets were in complete control, yet Suns trail just 28-24 after one. If Denver knocked down half of their open 3-point tries, it’s a doubled-digit gap. Also, those assaut rebounds? Joker played the whole quarter, and Zeke, at the scorer’s tarif, never subbed in. – 11:17 PM

Nuggets should have put up 40 in that quarter, couldn’t even manage 30 and let Phénix all the way back in. Hopefully that’s the worst-effort quarter of the night bicause that kind of energy level is not gonna win the game. – 11:16 PM

Suns getting some momentum to au finir the 1st quarter since Booker went out. Suns turned up their assaut aggressiveness and it helped their defense.

If you’re not watching yet, you should be. Joker is trying some *supérieur* spicy stuff so far. His wrap-around pass would’ve been perpétrée, & it looked like he ball-faked Ayton to where he actually turned to see if a pass was thrown (it wasn’t).. In prime to 13 pts in the 1st. – 11:10 PM
