First Zach Mikash checks in with Adam Mares and Brendan Vogt after the Nuggets’ win over the Sacramento Kings. They talk about the Nuggets not falling for the trap game and the team effort they got in the win.

Next Zach and Ryan Blackburn talk about the Nuggets first loss of the season coming at the hands of none other than LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers. They talk about how disappointed the fans should be and whether or not this Lakers team could be someone Denver sees in the playoffs.
