In this live post game podcast, the DNVR Nuggets crew breaks down the key takeaways from Denver’s narrow win over the Hornets while sharing plenty of laughs and an interesting story about Brendan’s childhood Halloween costume. Topics include:

  • Murray’s game winner
  • Jokic’s “slump?”

  • When do we stop talking about Murray’s youth and potential and just need to adjust his shot mix? When is he just who he is? I especially worry about his ball handling in the playoffs. Clippers D embarrassed him

  • Not a question. You guys are the homies also Monte reminds me of Chris Paul so much. He’s a point god.

  • I obviously love MPJ, but I also think Torrey can be a very valuable player. Is the ideal lineup having both of them be a part of the 9-man rotation which would leave Plumlee out of the picture? I think Plumlee plays great and he knows his role, but I think it was clear that when he was injured the team played fine (if not better) with Grant as the 5. I know Malone would never take Plumdog out but I sadly think there is a clear ceiling with him on the second unit.

  • Something I’ve been thinking about, that’s probably not backed by any quantitative data, but it seems like the one guy whose presence in the lineup tends to lead to the most clunkiness and aesthetically unappealing basketball is Milsap. I completely understand his importance, the positive +/- impact, and how he completely transforms our D, but it seems that a lot of the times when the team “feels” off or offense looks off, is when Milsap comes back into the lineup. anything to that?

  • One of my favorite moments on the Altitude Nuggets broadcasts is when Harrison gets a shoutout from the TV crew. It always seems like the Altitude broadcast crew really loves Harrison. He’s a lovable guy, which is why it brings me so much joy when they name drop his Twitter. I’d love to hear about how you guys interact with the local and national media throughout the season.
