Pickaxe Pundits: Denver Nuggets prepare for LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers after huge win against Oklahoma City Thunder

New, comments

The Denver Nuggets rebounded from a tough stretch by winning three straight, now they face LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers in the National TV spotlight

Last week started off poorly for the Denver Nuggets with a heartbreaking loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. Since then it’s been all smiles though as the Nuggets reeled off three straight wins including beating the Oklahoma City Thunder in OKC on the second night of a back to back. Now, they play just two games over the next six games but they are against arguably the Nuggets two biggest current rivals: the Los Angeles Lakers and the Portland Trail Blazers. To break it down on this week’s Pickaxe Pundits show we went full Denver Stiffs podcast Network. Zach Mikash hosts with segments from Ryan Blackburn (host of Nuggets Numbers) on bouncing back after the Bucks loss, Brendan Vogt (host of Full Court Press) on the huge win out in OKC and Jeremy Poley (co-host of The Dig) on the upcoming games against the Blazers and Lakers.
