Nuggets lose to Jazz, avoid injury disaster to Nikola Jokić | Pickaxe and Roll

Ryan shares his thoughts on the Nuggets loss to the Jazz and how the bench continues to be Denver’s greatest weakness

Ryan Blackburn breaks down the Denver Nuggets 122-110 loss to the Utah Jazz on the second night of a back-to-back. The Nuggets avoided injury disaster to Nikola Jokić as he bumped knees with Rudy Gobert rather than something more serious, and Denver’s starting lineup performed reasonably well in his absence. The bench continues to be awful though, and Ryan discusses the decision to stick with the same 5-man unit and a lot more of Denver’s issues, including Michael Porter Jr.’s role in the offense.
