After boasting a high-powered offense last year, the Nuggets and their fans were expecting the fireworks to continue in 2017-18. But so far the team that led the NBA in points per possession once Nikola Jokic was made the full-time starter last year has found itself unable to score at the same rate.
What are the main issues? Has bringing in free agent Paul Millsap to share the frontcourt with Jokic gummed up the spacing? Has Jamal Murray been given too much to handle? What’s going on with Wilson Chandler?
To help answer these questions, Adam Mares (@adam_mares) joins the latest episode of Fastbreak Breakfast. Adam is the site manager of Denver Stiffs and hosts the Locked on Nuggets podcast. Does he share the same concerns? If not the offense, what else is he worried about?
