Denver Nuggets Preparing for Postseason

The Denver Nuggets are not an elite offensive team. The Nuggets, in fact, are 15th in the league with 114.7 points per game. But, when the Nuggets need to score, they can. The biggest reason is Nikola Jokic. The big man is scoring just shy of 26 points per game, and ripping down more than 12 rebounds per game.

Jamal Murray has been good again this season for Denver. Murray has missed 16 games, but his presence leads the offense with a steady hand. Michael Porter Jr and Aaron Gordon are next for Denver, combining for more than 30 points per game.
