Rundown

The Denver Nuggets season has officially opened

  • Thoughts on Monte Morris’ new extension? How does he fit in next to Facundo Campazzo?
  • Is the slow start from the starting group outside of Nikola Jokic a concern? Should they even bother playing Jokic any more minutes that don’t count?
  • Does the bench unit have enough scoring? Who will the Nuggets have to turn to if Will Barton is still hurt?

The last two preseason games

  • What is the main thing the Nuggets are trying to accomplish? Do you use this as a rehearsal or as a chance to get the younger guys some minutes?
  • Is anyone fighting for a rotation spot? Where does Bol Bol and P.J. Dozier fit into the rotation?
  • NBA Season predictions? Is Jokic an MVP candidate and can anyone knock off the Los Angeles Lakers?
