The Denver Nuggets came up short in their last outing, losing to the Memphis Grizzlies 105-98, while out in Milwaukee the Bucks also came away losers, falling short to the Cleveland Cavaliers (final score 102-95.)
The Denver Nuggets actually played quiet well for the majority of the game. However, in the final quarter they let it all slip away.
Memphis outscored them 37-30 in the period, and Denver wasn’t able to fight their way back after that. It also didn’t help that Nikola Jokic couldn’t get much going.
The Nuggets star centre had 10 points, 11 rebounds and 6 assists. Not bad. But the team needs more from him, if they hope to make the playoffs.
Most of the Nuggets offense runs through him. So if he isn’t assertive the teams not going to play well.
For that reason he needs to be more aggressive next game. Against Milwaukee the Bucks are going to have Thon Maker guarding him.
That means Jokic needs to have himself a big game, especially since he’s matching up with a rookie that’s barely played half the season.
The Milwaukee Bucks weren’t able to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers in their last outing, despite having plenty of chances to do so. However, in the end they couldn’t capitalize on any of them, so they fell short because of it.
But to be fair, it probably didn’t help much that Michael Beasley was taken out of the game just 8 minutes in due to an injury. Without him the Bucks were left to look for other scoring option, but to no avail.
Nobody else was really able to get going besides Malcolm Brogdon. Not even Giannis Antetokounmpo (scored just 9 points).
That cannot happen next game. The Nuggets are one of the highest scoring teams in the league, so Milwaukee needs to be ready to match them on the scoreboard tit-for-tat.
If Giannis isn’t able to help them do that it’s going to be a long night for them. So Antetokounmpo needs to continue attacking the Nuggets vulnerable interior defense if the Bucks hope to win.
