After a stagnant and uninspired performance in Game 4, the Nuggets find themselves down 3-1 to a Clippers team that seems fated for a battle royale with their crosstown rivals. How did it come to this? Was it inevitable? Have the Clippers just been the better team? Or have the Nuggets missed an opportunity—so far—to take another step toward winning a championship? And if so, who’s to blame?

MPJ thinks the Nuggets need to get more players involved in the offense. Dame Lillard thinks MPJ needs to shut his mouth. Cohosts Nick Hertzog and special guest Miroslav Ćuk also have thoughts, which they have recorded and shared here with Nuggets fans around the world. Enjoy!

Note: Nick’s audio clears up after about the 8-minute mark.

The Dig is a sporadic-to-regular-ish podcast by Nick Hertzog and Jeremy Poley (and Miroslav Ćuk) that tries to put its fingers on the pulse of the most dominant Denver Nuggets narrative every week. As with any week that MPJ stirs up controversy, he, of course, is the dominant narrative.
