It's the biggest regular-season game of the year. Nuggets-Timberwolves tonight at Ball Arena.
Nikola Jokic and the Denver Nuggets are back in action and there is money to be made. Last time out the Denver Nuggets beat the Oklahoma City Thunder. This time they face Lamelo Ball and the Charlotte Hornets. Will the Nuggets munder the Hornets? Will Nikola Jokic get another triple-double? Join Ryan Koenigsberg and Adam Mares as they talk it…
Welcome to Wind Chimes, a notebook of reporting, observations and analysis from me about what I’ve seen, heard and talked to people around the team about over the last week. Here’s the thing about today’s NBA: almost everyone hates their head coach. Warriors fans think Steve Kerr has been holding Steph Curry back for most of his career. Spurs faithful…...
It’s Friday and the body knows it. The Colorado Avalanche are the only Colorado team in action tonight and there is money to be made. Nathan MacKinnon is on a roll and Ryan Koenigsberg is taking the old trusty bet of him shooting a bunch. On the other hand, Ryan Greene is taking the Avalanche to score quickly. He believes…
Monday night in Philly, James Harden learned the same lesson that Marcus Morris did two seasons ago.
"I'm made for the big lights," the rookie said late Thursday night. "When the big lights come on I shine."
From 2012-15, Dejan Milojevic was Nikola Jokic's coach at Mega Basket, the professional club in Serbia that the NBA's reigning MVP played for before arriving in Denver. Now, Milojevic is an assistant coach for the Golden State Warriors but still maintains a strong relationship with his most successful former player.
Milojevic had a major impact on Jokic's basketball upbringing and is one of Jokic's role models. Some of the reads and passes Jokic makes today were originally taught to him by Milojevic, a Serbian legend himself and three-time Adriatic League MVP who helped Yugoslavia win gold at EuroBasket 2001.
I caught up with Milojevic before the Nuggets hosted the Warriors on Monday night.
Harrison Wind: I'm guessing you watched his 46-point game against the Pelicans last night.
Dejan Milojevic: Every season I think that he can't play better and he proves me wrong. So I'm really happy that every season he's improving and maturing. All I can say is I'm enjoying watching him play.
HW: Is there a game of his that comes to mind that you think was his most dominant?
DM: History has taught me that his best game is still to come. I really think that now every segment of his talent has improved. He's dominating the floor. We all try from other teams to stop him, and nobody's done that successfully this season. I'm really proud of him.
HW: Take me back to 2012. What were some of your earliest memories of Nikola?
