Denver Nuggets 120, Miami Heat 111 (Final)

What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
I haven’t done the MVP tracker the last few days, but it’s crazy that even as the Nuggets are .500, there’s zero tangible argument for Jokić to be outside of the Top 5.
Like, it’s Curry at the top right now, then probably KD. Then either Jokić or a Suns player or DeRozan. – 12:38 AM

Kyle Lowry shared some thoughts after the game on how to get Duncan Robinson going from 3-point range: “A lot of our offense is him moving and getting open and getting handoffs from Bam…” Says the Heat may need to get him simpler looks.

Max Strus on Duncan Robinson: “He just got paid $90 million, I think he’s good enough. He’s an unbelievable shooter. He’ll be fine. It’s just a slump and he’ll get out of it.” – 11:27 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
NEW: Even without Jimmy Butler and Tyler Herro, the offense wasn’t the problem for Miami. Defensive issues hurt the Heat in tonight’s loss to the Nuggets. “Our defense is better than that,” Erik Spoelstra said.

Five Degrees of Heat from Monday night’s 120-111 loss to the Nuggets. sun-sentinel.com/sports/miami-h…
1. No fight this time, or fight from the Heat.
2. Also, no Butler or Herro.
3. Adebayo comes on (too) late.
4. Lowry hits milestone; Robinson struggles.
5. Strus compensates from three. – 10:35 PM

Duvalier Johnson @DuvalierJohnson
Nikola Jokic is going NUCLEAR
He has 17 points, 9 rebounds and two assists on 7-8 shooting.
Denver is up by 20 points at the halftime intermission and Bones Hyland has 13 points as well.
If you’re Coach Malone, what do you say to the team? – 8:38 PM

This is a team you can’t go zone against with Jokic

Too easy. Jokic is hustling down and beating the Heat back on offense.
Jokic up to 15 points … on 6-of-6 shooting with 9 rebounds in the first half. – 8:33 PM

Starting to feel like that game in Denver one respect: Nuggets in charge from the outset. Now up 50-35. – 8:29 PM

With Jimmy Butler and Tyler Herro out, the Heat needs Bam Adebayo and Duncan Robinson’s offense tonight.

You’re without Jimmy Butler and Tyler Herro
You’re rolling 8 deep
You’re 2 bench players, in Strus and Dedmon, can’t be your best players tonight
That just can’t happen – 8:25 PM
Michael Singer @msinger
Leads up to 12 after Jokic flips one to an unguarded Jeff Green for 3. Spo calls TO.
As Nikola’s walking to the bench, he takes a few extra moments to walk and talk through the last play where Aaron Gordon drove into traffic.
Everything’s easier with him in the game. – 8:24 PM
TJ McBride @TJMcBrideNBA
Bones is firing away, but he’s also been quick to get off the ball when there isn’t an advantage. He is so good at the things that don’t show up on the box score. Even that last closeout to the corner was fantastic. – 8:23 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
The Heat taken 18 threes in the first 17 minutes. Not too surprising as Miami’s short-handed roster looks for offense without Jimmy Butler and Tyler Herro. – 8:22 PM
Julia Poe @byjuliapoe

If Strahinja Jokic were to check in for the #Nuggets, (just sayin’) he’d be their biggest backup center available tonight. As it is, Vlatko is currently their backup five. – 8:13 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
Without Herro, Butler and Morris, Heat has tightened its rotation to eight, so far, tonight. Vincent, Strus and Dedmon only three who have entered off Miami’s bench. – 8:13 PM
Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
Nnaji has to be stronger when rolling to the cup against a player like Dedmon. Getting bumped off his spot a little too much. Wonder how that changes if Bam comes back in to start the 2nd. – 8:10 PM
Michael Singer @msinger
Outstanding first quarter for the #Nuggets, who lead 32-23 after one. Defense was flying around (MIA shot 39%) and offense was rolling (DEN 58%).
Jokic leads all scorers with 9, and Denver’s bench didn’t fall off a cliff when he went to the bench. Nuggets’ bench leads 9-5. – 8:09 PM

Lowry up to five assists late in first period. Needs three to pass Pippen for 33rd on all-time list. – 8:07 PM

My issue with Miami tonight was I didn’t think they’d be able to keep up scoring wise as second unit entered
That’s been the case
Plus Bam yet to score – 8:06 PM

Wish the Jokić brothers still had a Twitter so I could tag them. They’re sitting right behind the Nuggets bench here in Miami.

Dewayne Dedmon as third reserve off bench. Who would be next: Haslem? Okpala? Yurtseven? No one? – 8:01 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
Nuggets already 8 of 9 from the foul line. Heat hasn’t attempted a free throw yet. – 8:00 PM
Chris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner
The Hawks have said they don’t run plays for John Collins. He’s 94th in FGA. He’s 4th in WAR behind Steph, Giannis, Jokic and has been ultra effecient.
We talked about that plus the best all around season he’s had yet.
