In this live recorded episode from the DNVR 7-man Lounge, Adam, Eric, Vogt, and Wind rave over one of the most rewarding and impressive wins of the season and perhaps the best win of the Nikola Jokic / Michael Malone era. Jamal Murray shined alongside Jokic who put on one of the best performances of his career.

Plus, the group answers viewer questions on the trade deadline, the newly acquired players, and more.

  • I never know what to think about this team from week to week. One week I wish they had a starting point guard so Jamal could assume his natural position as a shooting guard. Then I’m reminded of how gritty a player he is as he toughs it out with a nagging ankle injury. One week I pull my hair out that no one can defend penetration to the hoop as the opponent gets uncontested layup after layup. Then Harris and Craig lock down Donovan Mitchell and Damian Lillard to propel the team to critical wins. They lose to the Wizards, and then they give me improbable wins against the Bucks and the Jazz. It’s been an exasperating run, but an exhilarating one as well. The one constant is Nikola Jokic, first team NBA. Excuse me while I sip so Barrel Proof Elijah Craig. I’m out.

    • A+ comment all around. This team has been up and down. But I also think that this version of Jokic is just the new Jokic. He’s taken a new step up. And Murray has had two great games since returning. If MPJ keeps the growth curve he’s been on since January, that’s 3 killers, plus Barton, Grant, Millsap, Monte, and Craig who has been on an upswing himself. Only Gary is struggling and, as you mentioned, he’s been impressive on defense. This team just seems like they’re reaching a new height right now.

  • It’s ironic that you guys talked about Connelly being a great scout and pulling these guys like Dozier and Craig out of no where, then when you talk about the new Nuggets, you completely forget your earlier talking point. Not saying they will hit on all these guys but Bates-Diop and McRae (happened after this pod) could potentially outperform and stick.
