It’s Luka Doncic Night in Denver

The Denver Nuggets have taken down quality opponent after quality opponent. This past week the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Toronto Raptors both fell to the Nuggets in Denver and now two more teams currently in the playoff chase are on the docket. First it’ll be Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks to close out the homestand followed by a trip to Los Angeles to take on the surprising Clippers. We break down the two big wins, including the tussle between Russell Westbrook, Jamal Murray and Nikola Jokic, plus Torrey Craig’s improved play. Then we spend the second half of the show talking about Luka Doncic’s rise and how he makes the Mavericks a team to be reckoned with for years to come before wrapping up the show talking about how it’s Nikola’s time to shine with the injuries around him and his continued great play.
