- All NBA Teams
Talked with President of Basketball Operations Tim Connelly on the Sports Social. He gave Nikola Jokic update:
He’s been given some unique at home workouts from the Nuggets strength and conditioning staff to stay in shape.
He also recently played a spirited game of monopoly.
Again, Gary Harris' defensive IQ is so high.
He gets cross-matched in transition on Chriss,who slips to the rim. Harris knows he has Millsap behind him to pick up Chirss so he lets him go. Then Toscano-Anderson cuts behind Chriss & Harris beats him to the spot.
That is all IQ. pic.twitter.com/ZTSlu0ZtHp
What could a new contract for Jerami Grant look like? Will Paul Millsap be back? What will the Nuggets do with their first-round pick? What is next for Michael Porter Jr.?
Answering some of the Nuggets' big offseason questions: theathletic.com/1710794/?sourc…
On March 31, I expected write playoff previews, not an offseason primer -- but here we are.
I took a stab at answering the biggest questions the Nuggets will face whenever that offseason officially begins, from Jerami Grant's new deal to the draft: theathletic.com/1710794/2020/0…
Shoutout to @SophyHotel for letting University of Chicago healthcare workers, including my fiancé, stay there for free as they put in long hours at the hospital and try to protect their families from exposure. Unbelievable gesture.
I have no idea how Nikola Jokic does what he does.
He isnt even passing to Harris here. He is passing to a spot using a bounce pass that somehow lands right in Harris' shooting pocket.
He's a fucking magician pic.twitter.com/QYQbyVGi18
The Nuggets run way more triangle sets than we talk about.
Look at this split action that opens up like 3 good looks.
Also, Millsap's quick screen was brilliant. pic.twitter.com/wicjB5IITM
I don't care that this is an easy read to make.
I love to see the Nuggets force a switch to get a small on Jokic at the high post to pull the defense away form the rim because Toronto will need to send help which gets Harris an easy look at the rim.

Hahahhahahaah Nikola Jokic is insane.
Look at him spin away from the double and just whip that pass across the court.
I will never get used to seeing this. pic.twitter.com/55r3zuzdJ4
That was a fun one to rewatch. Probably my favorite one yet. #DNVRWatches

Imagine Monte, Beasley, and Plumlee playing this much in the 4th quarter of a playoff game. That's basically what is happening with AC, JR, and Birdman. #DNVRWatches
Looked like Chauncey just waved off coach Karl saying to keep AC in the game. Bench unit was rolling. #DNVRWatches
Nuggets have owned the 3rd quarter in every game that they've won so far in this playoff run. #DNVRWatches
I still think about how Gary Harris destroying former teammate Malik Beasley in their first matchup far too often. pic.twitter.com/ojWiti1DTm
Nene's footwork in the post is a lot worse than I remember. He's traveled and/or stumbled a lot on 1-on-1 post ups. #DNVRWatches
Number 1 takeaway from watching this 2009 team is just how much more physical they were than the 2020 team and how much more willing they were to hit first. Kenyon just threw Dirk to the ground for no reason but to send a message. #DNVRWatches
We get Hubie for game 1. 🙏 #DNVRWatches
Gary Harris shot the best three-point percentage in basketball after the All-Star break (min 2 attempts per game & 30mpg).
He shot 57.7% from deep in Denver’s final 10 games.
I think I’m losing it with all of this going on.
I even convinced myself that ESPN was playing Baby Boy two days ago.
What do you guys want to know about the Nuggets players/coaches during this time?
Hoping to chat with a few soon!

We’re all into 🏀 twitter right!?
How did Enes Kanter possibly believe that he could steal an amazing tweet from a verified account and get away with it?

Excited to get this big film study up later today on @MileHighSports.
I dove into Gary Harris’ resurgence and tried to discern if he is truly back or not.
It’ll be up later today/tonight.
Thinking about taking a trip. Where should go? A) Around the house B)End of driveway or C) to the mailbox? If Any good recommendations pic.twitter.com/mc0xYpOVDI

This steal is 10000% from watching film.
Gary Harris knows that Beal likes that rip-through move to get to his right and sits on it until he can swipe it as he rips through.
God damn Harris' defense is so good on re-watch. pic.twitter.com/Bhl5WPV4ms
What a sequence.
-the awareness to get into passing lane
-quick outlet pass
-great decision to kick to Monte Morris in the corner for 3 pic.twitter.com/tXOEeqPqYE
This is violence. pic.twitter.com/XibPcgSOSn
When Gary Harris & Nikola Jokic defend in the two-man game together, their IQ shines when locked in.
Jokic does a good job of disrupting Luka's dribble without reaching & when he does that it opens the passing lane to the rolling big.
Harris knows that too & he gets the steal. pic.twitter.com/VAHN0VBT5Y
I love this steal because it shows just how aware Gary Harris always is.
He knows there is no outlet for IT in the corner so even when he starts to back off to stick with Troy Brown Jr., he keeps his eye on the passing lane knowing that's the only way he can go with the ball. pic.twitter.com/g4r1wZPFYH
I have no idea how the fuck Nikola Jokic does the things he does. pic.twitter.com/M9fkjGnnnW
When the Nuggets defense is locked in and everyone is communicating, they have the means to cover some serious ground without having the biggest wings/guards. pic.twitter.com/x50e37ni7b
This is the Gary Harris Denver needs in the playoffs.
Again, he has some of the fastest hands in the league & pairs that with a high IQ. Look at him swipe on the pump fake Redick is about to use. That's all KYP.
Then he confidently hits the trailing 3 in transition. Perfect. pic.twitter.com/lXDxkhwu1D
