Our hometown Denver Nuggets lost their Game 1 conference semifinal game against the Phoenix Suns last night. The Nuggets actually showed some promise early on, but poor shot selection, missed layups, and their perimeter defense allowed the Suns to take over in the second half.
Do the Nuggets actually have any hope of winning this series, and advancing?
With a banged up Chris Paul, and Nikola Jokic playing the way he is right now? Yes, they at least have a chance, but they will have to make some adjustments.
Paging Mike Malone. Mike, please pick up a courtesy phone.
Especially when your team is allowing a 16-0 run in the second half.
It’s one thing to allow players like Devin Booker and Mikal Bridges to drop 20 points on you, but allowing Suns big man Deandre Ayton to go for 20 and dominate the paint? He’s not a scorer. The Nugget can’t allow that.
Having said that, everyone completely overreacts to Game 1’s in a seven game series. Let’s see how this series looks after Game 2 on Wednesday night.
Sorry, I am still in a state of shock that the Nuggets even got by the Portland Trail Blazers in the opening round.
If you told me that Michael Porter Jr would average just 18 points per game against Portland, I would have asked “And where will the Nuggets be vacationing this week?”
Porter had three games in which he really struggled to make his presence felt. However the depth of this team, with players like Monte Morris and Austin Rivers stepping up their games, was very impressive. As great as Jokic was, the Nuggets actually outscored the Blazers with Jokic off the floor in that series.
Rivers shot 48% from three point range against the Blazers, and Morris forced them to go over those ball screens that Jokic kept setting, instead of cheating underneath and clogging the paint.
Aaron Gordon can be key against Phoenix. He couldn’t throw it in the ocean last night, but he played well against Portland and actually shot 60% from three point range. Gordon has some skills that the Nuggets definitely need, and it seems he is enjoying playing in games that actually matter.
The change of scenery has served Gordon well, at least so far.
Could Blazers star Damian Lillard be looking for a change of scenery after this latest playoff disappointment?
Lillard has been toiling in a small market, and making very little headway, as far as actually contending for an NBA title.
In this NBA era of chasing championships, Portland should be very worried about losing their superstar. Unfortunately, Nuggets fans should be watching this closely, because they have some good players that they are going to want to keep in this small market too.
As exciting as it was to see the Nuggets advance in the first round, there was a small part of me that truly felt bad for Dame coming up short yet again.
Having said that, I couldn’t have been more happy for Carmelo Anthony.
I know the national and even some of the local media, were bashing Nuggets fans for booing Melo, when he played in Denver during that series.
He left a very good team here in Denver for a much worse situation basketball-wise in New York to “promote his brand”.
Show me a fan base that wouldn’t be angry at a former player doing that.
You think the Green Bay Packer faithful won’t boo Aaron Rodgers, if he leaves, every single chance that they get?
After such a promising start to the Stanley Cup Playoffs, our Colorado Avalanche are in deep trouble against a very tough, very fast, very experienced Vegas squad.
Since the Game 1 rout, Vegas has thoroughly outplayed the Avs in seven of the past nine periods.
Barring a major change, that series is over, but I am really hoping that Avalanche coach Jared Bednar still has a few tricks up his sleeve.
