1. The Nuggets have made this 5-4 screen in transition a staple of their fastbreak offense whenever Nikola Jokic brings the ball up the court. One forward will either rim run or sprint to the corner while the two guards occupy each wing. The other forward will set a transition PnR at the top of the key and roll hard…...

1. I really love the Reed-Hyland combination, primarily for the fact that you combine two players with “sneaky wingspans.” It’s well documented that the league is skewing longer on the perimeter but often times that is thought of merely as “taller.” But wingspan and reach may be just as important as height and “sneaky wingspan” may be even more valuable...

1. “I love to play with him.” That’s what the reigning MVP said about JaMychal Green when asked about playing alongside him in the starting lineup over the last two games. You can see a certain chemistry between those two on the court. More importantly, you can see a certain skillset that JMyke brings that is unique to the Nuggets’...

1. I’ve been harping on the Nuggets coaching staff giving Nikola Jokic the Facu-Rivers backcourt for the last several weeks. That trio somehow manages just a 93.9 offensive rating in 95 minutes so far this season, an unfathomably low mark for a lineup featuring the reigning MVP and one of the most dynamic offensive engines in the league today.

Everyone exhale. Take a deep breath. Nikola Jokic was back in the lineup Monday after a four-game absence. Soon enough, the Nuggets’ six-game losing streak — Denver’s longest since 2015 — was over. Extinguished. Doused. Finished. Jokic had the Heat in his back pocket by halftime. Denver led Miami 63-43 at the break behind 17 points, 9 rebounds, and 2...

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words but to live by them.” – John F. Kennedy As a kid, going to Sunday school, I noticed a pattern in my praying. I realized that my most fervent and heartfelt prayers were coming down the pipe when I felt the most...
