NBA: New Orleans Pelicans at Denver Nuggets Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

In this episode, I look at every player on the Denver Nuggets roster and talk about an area of emphasis for them as they head into the home stretch.

  • Can Jamal Murray run the offense without hiccups?
  • Can Gary Harris shoot above 40% from behind the three-point line?
  • Can Will Barton defend his position?
  • Can Paul Millsap elevate the defense and keep the Nuggets in the top 10 in defensive efficiency?
  • Can Nikola Jokic be dominant?
  • Can Monte Morris run the offense even when Isaiah Thomas is on the court?
  • Can Malik Beasley continue to shoot the leather off of the ball?
  • Can Mason Plumlee rediscover the two-man game with him and Morris?
  • Can Torrey Craig shut down taller wings?
  • Can Isaiah Thomas get his first step back?
  • Can Juancho Hernangomez knock down wide open shots?
  • Can Trey Lyles fit back in with the 2nd unit?
