1. I’ll stop short of a full on conspiracy theory but…upon rewatch, it sure appeared as though Joel Embiid spent several possessions early on trying to keep Jokic from scoring at the expense of allowing some wide open shots for other Nuggets players.

1. Here is a great example of how each of the players in Denver’s new-look second unit fit together so nicely.
