It's a shooting contest early as the Nuggets lead 7-5.

I didn't think Nurkic could move that quickly as he drives to the basket.

Nurkic is feeling good tonight as he knocks down a three. He already has 7 points.

You’d think they need at least half a season to really dial in the chemistry before the playoffs.
I'm guessing three former all stars, give them 20 games together heading into the playoffs, we will be good to go!

I thought it was very thoughtful when Nurkic gave Mike Malone a big hug before the start of the game.

Big Nurk 7 pts
The Joker 2 pts

I know that won't last but it's better than the Jokic and the Nuggets jumping out to a big lead - without Nurk we'd be down 7 to 14

I thought KBD was fouled on that scramble.

The Suns are shooting almost 82% from the field and the Nuggets 75%.

Maybe it's just me, but I don't really care if the big three play together in these early season games. I just want everyone healthy and rolling at the end of the season.

I wanted Nurkic to make that dunk.

Denver is just a great offensive team. Hard to stop them every time down the floor.

Suns trail the Nuggets 35-25. Phoenix needs to guard somebody.
