After a three game losing streak, the Denver Nuggets won a much needed game on national television against LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers. The story was LeBron passing Michael Jordan on the all-time points scored list, but Denver’s starting lineup absolutely torched Los Angeles.

In this episode, Ryan talks about the Isaiah Thomas inclusion in the bench unit thus far, how his presence has impacted Denver’s offense, defense, and other teammates, including Monte Morris and Malik Beasley. Then, Ryan answers some questions on Thomas and the bench, Jokic vs Plumlee post up numbers, and Trey Lyles coming back to the rotation.
