Welcome back to Nuggets Numbers! This episode, Ryan is joined by Denver Stiffs writer Daniel Lewis, and the two discuss a bevy of topics to open the season. With statistics and information you won’t find anywhere else, Nuggets Numbers is the show to learn more about the analytics of basketball and how they relate to the game.

This was a very fun episode to record. Daniel (@minutemandan) was great and brought some perspective to the Nuggets defense, Will Barton’s importance, Nikola Jokic’s dominance, and much more.
