The great thing about the Nuggets losing tonight without Joker and MPJ is you get to check the standings, remember they’re 9-1 in their last 10, still in first place, and looking down at the mess of mid below them. – 1:13 AM

No Nikola Jokic, no MPJ, awful free throw shooting, and the #Nuggets nearly had a chance to extend their winning streak to 10.
Far from dismayed, the Nuggets turned Sunday’s loss to the Thunder into a positive.
“We stayed together,” Murray said.

Ugh. Nuggets 9-game win streak and 16-game home win streak comes to an end.
The Nuggets missed 16 free throws and lose by 2 to the Thunder. No Jokić, no MPJ. – 10:31 PM

Final rotations for the Nuggets as they lose to the Thunder 101-99:
-Jamal: 26-5-9, played a great game
-Seven Nuggets in double-figures but no Nugget besides Jamal above 15
-16 missed free throws in a 2 point loss
Win streak finally comes to an end at 9 w/o Joker and MPJ. pic.twitter.com/KANixZlXxk10:27 PM

More on this storyline

Barnes said he had no information to indicate that Michael Porter Jr. was involved in the crash. Coban came to Denver after committing to the University of Denver men’s basketball program and played in 28 games as a freshman last season. He tore an anterior cruciate ligament during the offseason and has been unable to practice with the team this year because of the injury. Michael Porter Jr. was held out of Sunday night’s game against Oklahoma City due to “personal reasons.” -via Denver Post / January 22, 2023
