Pickaxe Pundits: Paul Millsap injury and the Denver Nuggets bounce back after bad road trip

New, comments

All in all, it was kind of a crummy week

This week on Nothin’ But Net Radio Zach is joined by head stiff Adam Mares on the Pickaxe Pundits show to discuss the tough injury news about Paul Millsap and how the Denver Nuggets fill the void that he leaves. Next they’ll break down the tough road trip, but try to find some positives from the 1-2 swing. Then they get into the big win over the Memphis Grizzlies and how Nikola Jokic is becoming a leader. Finally, they’ll give their thoughts on the leaked design of the “City” edition jerseys.
