The Nuggets were certainly the team for most of the regular season, leading up to the All-Star Break. They had the best record in the Western Conference for most of the way and Nikola Jokic has dazzled in his first All-Star season.
But this team is more than just Jokic. Jamal Murray is on the precipice of becoming a star and Head Coach Mike Malone gets some great work out of thankless role players like Malik Beasley and Torrey Craig.
Beasley in particular, a third-year player out of Florida State, has been terrific. He’s played every game this season and is scoring 12 points per game on just great shoot splits. He’s shooting 58 percent from two-point range, 43 percent from three and better than 88 percent from the line.
Hopefully the time off has helped Gary Harris, who has missed 25 of Denver’s first 57 games with nagging injuries, the latest of which was a groin.
The Nuggets could use his offense. Harris averaged 17.5 points last season on nearly 50 percent shooting. He was over the 50 percent threshold the season before at around 15 ppg. This season, his efficiency has suffered. If he can come back and come back healthy, Harris gives the Nuggets a unique scoring look on the wing they can’t replicate without him.
Dallas goes into the home stretch a different team than it was at the start of the year, when the Mavericks were a pleasant surprise in the Western Conference.
They were never much of a playoff threat, but Dallas was one of those teams that looked good enough to make the first eight in the East. After the Kristaps Porzingis trade, everyone is looking ahead to next season.
Porzingis likely won’t play at all this season, giving him extra time to get strong before making his debut with Luka Doncic, who have quite quickly become the cornerstone duo of the franchise.
It’s still unclear what Dallas will do with Tim Hardaway Jr. and Courtney Lee, both of whom came over in the deal for Porzingis and both of whom are owed a great deal of money over the next couple seasons.
Lee is an expiring deal next season, in which he will make nearly $13 million. Hardaway is under contract for the next two seasons and will make about $37 million. He’s still a player, though, so perhaps Mark Cuban will just hold onto him and hope he can stay healthy and give Dallas the wing scorer it will need.
