Coach Michael Malone went to the Nikola Jokic and Jusuf Nurkic pairing at the end of last season. What were your thoughts on it and do you think we could see it again next year? Wilson Chandler: “When they put Nurkic and Jokic in, just from a feel of it on the outside looking in, I felt like down the line maybe this year and going forward that’s a great possibility, that’s a great lineup. I think it’s a good strength for our team though, If you have a bigger team you can play those guys, but if you’re getting killed you can go smaller with Gallo at the four, throw me at the four, we can try and catch up that type of way but I think that’s a great strength we have. We can mix it up a lot.”
