As the Denver Nuggets limp toward the playoffs, some much needed luck might be on their side

Locked on Denver Nuggets

NBA: Houston Rockets at Oklahoma City Thunder Alonzo Adams-USA TODAY Sports

In this episode, I share my notes on Denver’s 118-108 loss to the Utah Jazz. Rudy Gobert dominated inside, holding Nikola Jokic to just 2 points and 6 fouls. Paul Millsap also struggled to get going against Utah’s stout interior defense. Gary Harris must’ve taken offense to reports of his athletic demise as he finished three dunks in this game. Malik Beasley started to look like his old self. And for the 3rd time in as many games, Will Barton did not play in the 4th quarter. I share my thoughts on all of those plot points and explain why, despite stumbling toward the finish line, the Denver Nuggets are still in position to create the perfect playoff bracket.
