In an era that emphasizes space and freedom of movement, the Nuggets first 10 games were a bit of an aberration. Slow-it-down, all-game style defensive squads are a thing of the past, replaced by teams who dictate with their offense and pick their spots on defense. The Nuggets need to get their identity back to being that offensive juggernaut that CAN play good defense when the chips are down.

This includes Nikola Jokic who needs to find himself again.

The Denver Nuggets lost to the worst team in the Western Conference, the Dallas Mavericks. They lost by A LOT. Michael Malone was out-coached by one of the best in the business, Rick Carlisle. It happens.

The Nuggets biggest concern is tapping into the unusual and brilliant point guard skill set of Nikola Jokic. A center who needs the ball in his hands. Once the Nuggets find a way to make this happen they will take that next step. Until then it's going to be a frustrating time.
