In this episode, I share my notes on Denver’s 114-104 win over the Dallas Mavericks. Gary Harris returned to the lineup and had a bit of bounce in his step. Will Barton also looked more like his old self than before, and Isaiah Thomas managed to score 16 points in 15 minutes. The Denver Nuggets looked like the deepest team in the NBA, capable of putting several different combinations of players on the court and playing at a high level. The team also managed to recapture the defensive intensity that they had early on in the season.
Lastly, I talked about Nikola Jokic’s interview with Vic Lombardi in which he hinted that he’d like to be the Tim Duncan of the Denver Nuggets, spending his entire career in the Mile High City.
