NBA: Denver Nuggets at Dallas Mavericks Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

In this episode of the Locked On Nuggets podcast, I share my notes on the blowout loss to the Dallas Mavericks. The Denver Nuggets continued their struggles on the road and are starting to look like their old selves on the defensive end, and not in a good way. Dribble penetration destroyed the Nuggets’ defense last year and over the last few games, that issue is back like it never left.

I also talk about how the return of Wilson Chandler presents a conundrum for head coach Michael Malone as he tries to find the right starting lineup given the weaknesses of the front court. Kenneth Faried and Mason Plumlee are the team’s best available power forward and center but they require guards and wings that can stretch the floor. With Wilson suffering his worst shooting year of his career, Malone now has to figure out which of those guys mus go to the bench.
