Why Nikola Jokic and Kenneth Faried work together so well

Locked on Nuggets podcast

NBA: Oklahoma City Thunder at Denver Nuggets Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

In this episode of the Locked on Nuggets podcast, I recap the win over the Orlando Magic and share notes from the game including the decision to run a few sets for Will Barton down the stretch, Jameer Nelson’s post entry passes, and Nikola Jokic’s “re-post” equivalent. Then I give my guess at why Jokic and Kenneth Faried have been such an effective pairing so far this season. When the two are on the court together, the Nuggets have a 117 ORTG and 103 DRTG. Those are absurd numbers and it isn’t like it’s a small sample size. The two guys have played 245 possessions together this season.
