Ryan Blackburn breaks down the Denver Nuggets 113-97 win over the New York Knicks that was over by the end of the first quarter. Nikola Jokić drops 24 points in the first quarter compared to just 12 points for the Knicks, dominating on both ends of the floor in ways only he can. Ryan also discusses great performances from Facundo Campazzo and Austin Rivers, a solid game for Michael Porter Jr., and a disturbing one for Aaron Gordon.
