Pickaxe Pundits: Denver Nuggets drop two games in a row as injuries take their toll

Not a great Christmas week for the Nuggets thus far

Merry Christmas everyone! We’re wrapping up the last week and a half action (because it only had three games!) for the Denver Nuggets and then looking forward to the upcoming weekend back to back against the San Antonio Spurs and Phoenix Suns. The majority of the show discusses how the Nuggets injuries have finally caught up with them and how they need to adjust to be able to survive the next couple weeks until they start to get some help back.
