@ChaseHughesNBCS
Monte Morris said something interesting yesterday about his role as a PG for the Wizards. He said he’s had to “get back into that mode” because in Denver the offense was initiated by Nikola Jokic to such a large degree, the PG role was different than it is on most teams. – 10:42 AM
Jason Calmes
@BourbonStShots
There were several instances last night where Zion had a good pin and someone like Lonzo would’ve found him for an easy oop. This team is easily better than the ones with Zo, but that absolutely instant recognition/delivery will be missed. Zo was special in that way. -MP – 10:33 AM

Draymond hit less than 30% of his 3’s last season. He has not made over 31% of them in 6 seasons. He is not a fit for the Lakers at all. The Bulls finished 4th last season in 3pt%, their C hit 31%, and they were 24th in DRTG. That deal has legs. – 7:52 AM

Naji Marshall on Jose Alvarado, who had a great passing night at Chicago, then deposited 28 pts vs. Pistons: “Unbelievable. He’s so electric. You never know what he’s going to do. Every game he does something that is special. It’s exciting to see.” – 11:43 PM

Asked both Bones Hyland and Michael Porter Jr about Aaron Gordon’s play so far:
Bones: “dominant on that low block” says he’s in AG’s ear when he plays good defense and his opponent makes a tough shot.

Billy Donovan says the decision to move Patrick Williams to the bench in favor of Javonte Green today was not meant to send a message for the third-year forward to make improvements.
“I don’t feel like I need to do things to motivate him or light a fire under him.” – 10:51 PM
Joe Cowley
@JCowleyHoops
Billy Donovan says there is no message being sent to PWill in the benching. – 10:50 PM
Joe Cowley
@JCowleyHoops
Billy Donovan being very coy about the Patrick Williams demotion – first by refusing to call it a demotion. Said it’s being made into a bigger deal because PWill was a No. 4 pick. Won’t commit to it being permanent, but did like the way it looked. – 10:47 PM

Jamal Collier
@JamalCollier
Billy Donovan said he wanted to get a look at a few different lineups tonight, which is why he started Javonte Green over Patrick Williams.
Donovan said he didn’t consider it a permanent move yet: “Patrick is certainly more than capable of being a starter.” – 10:45 PM
Katy Winge
@katywinge
Coach Malone: “we’re two preseason games in, ten days into this preseason and we’re nowhere near where we need to be.”
He said the Nuggets need to work harder and “be more committed and disciplined” and that’s his job to make sure they do that. – 10:44 PM
Katy Winge
@katywinge
Coach Malone after this Nuggets loss said it was another “poor defensive effort.” Said the offense wasn’t the problem tonight, and that in the first half it was paint defense, the second half was 3-point defense. Transition defense still isn’t where it needs to be. – 10:38 PM

Alright, that’s a final. Nuggets drop this one to the Bulls, 131-113.

Preseason or not, 105 points on 64.5 percent shooting, 23 assists against 10 turnovers, 18 fast-break points and 16 points off 15 Nuggets turnovers to this point is all the makings of an excellent bounce back performance by the Bulls. – 9:54 PM
Gordon Gross
@GMoneyNuggs
The problem w returning multiple players from injury while integrating new ones is the noticeable gap between players who know where they’re supposed to be and what they should do & those who do not. Jokic being out aggravates it, but I’m not expected a well-oiled machine Game 1. – 9:50 PM

Nuggets gave up 72 points in that first half.
For this to be a team that’s focus this off-season was on the defensive end, that’s not the kind of half you can have and feel good about yourselves.
They hang up 63 of their own but have to key in on that end of the floor. – 9:13 PM

DeAndre Jordan is starting at center for Denver tonight with Nikola Jokic out. That gives Zeke Nnaji his turn to play with the second unit. – 6:59 PM

The Nuggets play the Bulls tonight in a couple hours. Jokić is out as previously reported by @Katy Winge.
Key points to watch:
-Who starts at center?
-How does offense fare without Joker?
-Can Murray/MPJ add to strong first game?
-Does Bones bounce back?
-Any changes to rotation – 5:28 PM

Cam Johnson (right thumb sprain) and Cameron Payne (right finger sprain) are expected to miss rest of preseason as precaution with injuries from Wednesday’s preseason win over Lakers.

Nikola Jokic has been downgraded (wrist) from questionable and won’t play tonight vs. Chicago, I’m told.
Jokic didn’t make the trip and stayed in Denver. Team felt there was no reason for him to travel for a one-off preseason game, anyway. – 1:08 PM

@katywinge
Nikola Jokić has been downgraded to officially OUT tonight against the Bulls with that right wrist sprain.
He did not travel will the team – he stayed back in Denver.
To reiterate – this is a chance for him to get extra rest and the Nuggets are just playing it extra cautious. – 1:05 PM

Just a reminder – this 2023 draft class could be very special … and as of now the Bulls no longer have their first-round pick. #NotTankingForWembanyama9:39 AM

Denver, who I was told was a real threat to win not only the AFC West but also the AFC as a whole, is 2-3 having played the softest part of the schedule & averaging 15 PPG.
They have still games remaining against… KC 2x, LAC 2x, @ JAX, @ BAL, @ LAR.
