The Denver Nuggets have gone through a rough stretch of two games against the Houston Rockets. The team barely lost each, two of their best players (Danilo Gallinari and Wilson Chandler) have been out of commission, and the Portland Trail Blazers are a mere half game behind the Nuggets for the eighth spot. Things are looking gloomy right?

In today’s CSG Podcast, Nate Timmons and myself go over the Nuggets issues … in particular their issues with closing games in the last minute, Nikola Jokic’s defensive issues, and Jameer Nelson’s hero ball. Also, I talk about how people should be rooting for the Nuggets to make the playoffs rather than giving up and hoping for better picks.

As always, enjoy the podcast!
