1. The most important question that will determine which team wins game 6 will be whether or not the Denver Nuggets have figured out a way to defend the Utah Jazz pick-and-roll (PnR). In game 5, the Nuggets held the Jazz to just 44 points in the 2nd half in part because of their ability to contain Donovan Mitchell with…...

1. Here is a great example of Michael Porter Jr. can put pressure on the defense when he brings the ball up the court. https://youtu.be/a6b_pyGcXHo 2. The Utah Jazz do a great job of disguising their screens. In this clip, Donovan Mitchell catches Michael Porter Jr. by surprise when he appears to be cutting through to the corner before diving right…...

Topics include: Whether or not he agrees with teams resting starters down the stretch of the seeding round How an NBA coaching staff prepares for the playoffs Denver’s strengths against Utah Jamal Murray’s role and responsibility Nikola Jokic’s…

1. After the game, Michael Malone fumed over Denver’s defensive effort and ranking dead last in defensive efficiency through 7 games inside of the bubble. I’m curious if he’ll feel the same way on Friday having rewatched the tape. https://youtu.be/u77pO1fcJ9I 2. One of the most encouraging things that stood out on second watch of the game was the budding three-man…...

1. I’ve mentioned this before but Jerami Grant has a dribble crutch and it is his right to left neutral dribble that he uses on most of his dribble drives. I haven’t seen a team sit on it too much yet but it is certainly the type of thing that will pop up in a playoff scouting report. More importantly,…...

1.  Jerami Grant is 6’9″ with an 8’11” standing reach, a long stride, and an impressive vertical jump. So why does he so rarely put people on a poster? https://youtu.be/J0wbe5iZkKc 2.  Michael Porter Jr., on the other hand, really maximizes his physical gifts. His cutting is phenomenal thanks in part to how actively he works to place himself in scoring…...

This edition of THE LIST is a companion piece to Monday’s episode of the DNVR Nuggets podcast. 1. This was an interesting take on the inverted 5-1 PnR that Nikola Jokic often runs with Jamal Murray. https://youtu.be/bEH_YJKkWwA 2. Communicating on defense should be made easier inside this bubble setting, void of fans and excess background noise. It should also be…...

Can you believe it? It’s finally time for another report card after waiting 143 days to see those Denver Nuggets play basketball again. There won’t be a lot of players on the Honor Roll after a 125-105 loss to the Miami Heat in Denver’s re-opener, but the Nuggets have a small runway to work with before they need to take…...
