When Nikola Jokic re-entered the starting lineup on December 15, everything clicked.
From that point forward, the Denver Nuggets posted the league’s best offensive rating (113.3). And though they were unusually porous (league-worst 111.9 defensive evaluation ), they still outscored their foes and claimed themselves as a valid threat to make the playoffs.
Now, they.
Paul Millsap is a perfect fit next to Jokic, gracing the Nuggets along with his defensive acumen and versatile offensive play. He provides the Mile High City a second top-25 participant, and his presence instantly creates one of the NBA’s most reckless frontcourt pairings.
