Ryan Blackburn breaks down the 113-108 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans that could have been a lot worse for the Denver Nuggets than it was. Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram combine for 60 points, and the Nuggets clearly need another guy who can match up with players like them. Steven Adams was a beast on the boards, and the free throw disparity was nuts, but this is a game Denver can sweep under the rug for a variety of reasons.

Ryan talks about the game, then about how the rotation is playing itself into its playoff form prior to the trade deadline. Do the Nuggets have enough on their roster to win big? Do they need more? Who’s going to start when fully healthy? How do the Nuggets make up for their weaknesses?

Then, Ryan does Monday Positivity, Changing of the seasons Edition.
