What to Watch

Can the Nuggets backcourt defend? This isn’t restricted to simply Murray and Harris both. We’ve seen Will Barton get quite a lot of minutes within the first two video games, and Mudiay will get minutes as properly. Wall is one in every of, if not probably the most, quickest gamers within the league, almost unimaginable to defend within the halfcourt not to mention in transition. Bradley Beal has developed his recreation and is starting to be an improved playmaker, including that factor to his very good taking pictures capability.
The Nuggets guards should combat by means of screens from Marcin Gortat, top-of-the-line within the enterprise at stopping defenders of their path along with his highly effective body. There’s not as a lot to fret about for the second unit - hopefully Will Barton will have the ability to make hay there.
Let the Manimal out of the cage. Kenneth Faried is exhibiting why he deserves minutes within the rotation along with his play of late, threatening to push Mason Plumlee down the rotation. His power on offense ignites the second unit, giving them a lot wanted hearth and aggressive spirit. He’s demonstrated he can play properly with Nikola Jokic, and appears to be a optimistic piece alongside Paul Millsap. Because the league continues to downsize, he turns into an increasing number of efficient as a middle.
Hopefully the teaching employees will play gamers with expertise and match over gamers with giant contracts.
Can Wilson Chandler get funky. Our resident vegan has not gotten off to a robust begin to the season. He’s averaging seven factors a recreation on 31.6 % taking pictures, however his rebounding and help numbers are high-quality. Chandler is a robust isolation participant, and has the power to stretch the ground. It appears to me to the difficulty is only a chemistry one - he’s looking for his function subsequent to Millsap and Jokic, a problem that plagues a lot of the lineup.
If Chandler can have a robust evening, it’ll be spectacular, as a result of Otto Porter Jr. will not be a straightforward matchup for him. If Chandler can win that, it could possibly be the distinction maker for the Nuggets.
