Ryan Blackburn breaks down a great 113-108 win by the Denver Nuggets over the New Orleans Pelicans. Nikola Jokić was his normal incredible self, Jamal Murray had a season high 11 assists, and Michael Porter Jr. looks unstoppable from beyond the three-point line. The Big Three combined for 85 points tonight, and Ryan discusses how they all made it happen.

He also talks about Zion Williamson and the Nuggets defense, Denver’s shorthanded bench unit that needs Monte Morris to come back ASAP, and gives a shoutout to Will Barton for an understated performance. Then, Ryan goes around the league to discuss the Western Conference standings and an early playoff discussion.
