Denver Nuggets Offense
Part 3 of the Nuggets vs Lakers Series Preview
I cannot wait for this matchup where we get possibly the most unguardable offensive player in Jokic vs the most dominant and versatile big defender in the NBA in Anthony Davis. Not only that, it is the best offense with the Nuggets scoring 1.21 PPP in the NBA playoffs vs the best defense in the Lakers holding teams to 1.07 PPP. Not to mention so many X’s & O’s and adjustment possibilities - this series is going to have everything!

Note: I preferred this all in one post, but Substack was not able to properly upload everything in one place. I will have a separate solution moving forward.
All stats from Cleaning The Glass unless otherwise noted.
The Denver Nuggets offense all centers around Nikola Jokic and his incredible ability to control a basketball game from every spot on the floor. Jokic can pick and pop for 3’s, attack closeouts, post up mismatches and make you pay for cheating against him.
