What is Malone doing to start the playoffs TODAY?

The Dig - A Denver Nuggets Podcast

The Dig is a Denver Nuggets podcast by Nick Hertzog and Jeremy Poley that tries to put its fingers on the pulse of the most dominant Denver Nuggets narrative over every 2-week period. It started as a podcast looking for another podcast that will join it for a life full of adventure, philanthropy and lasting love. 25 other podcasts met The Dig on the same night. The Dig dated them over several weeks, narrowing them down to hopefully find its true love. In the end, all it found was #NuggLife.


THIS WEEK’S THEME

At the end of a season long health crisis, The Nuggets found themselves in a losing rut as they worked to finally integrate all of their pieces together. But the rut was short-lived as they blew the doors open in the Minnesota game with a strict rotation and the mindset to already play like it’s the playoffs. Where does this leave them over the last 16 games and how far can they rise or fall?

This week’s theme is: Down to Business
