"They are on their heels about how to guard Mitchell"

Considering they have one of the best perimeter defenders in NBA history and another all-defensive team perimeter defender on their roster, it shouldn't exactly be rocket science.

Took them a few games to figure this out with Luka. 2 great defenders on your team and you guard Luka with…Reggie Jackson???

Like, I understand that you can't afford to have your superstar player exhaust himself entire on defense every possession but it's not like he's not tiring himself out switching on every possession like the Clippers do.
 
I mean a series doesn’t start until the home team loses but man, the nuggets looking horrible on the road. Will they even win a game at home?
unless Jokic gets some offensive help from the likes of Porter, Barton or Gordon then this series will be over faster than I thought. They need to cut the head of the snake for Phoenix but they don't really have any good defenders, they got rid of them all
