Michael Malone has a contract extension, Nikola Jokic inked a max deal in the offseason and Paul Millsap is healthy. Things seem to be trending well for the Denver Nuggets, so it's important to them to not squander opportunities when the only goal is reaching the playoffs in April. The Nuggets (1-0) took a big step in rallying to win their season opener, 107-98 at the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday.
The Denver Nuggets gave team unity the full-court press over the offseason. There were voluntary workouts in the Mile High City that were well attended, training sessions in Las Vegas and even an informal camp in Atlanta hosted by Paul Millsap. ''Outside of basketball and the outside work, that's really where you build the chemistry,'' Millsap said.
A huge reason why the Denver Nuggets missed the playoffs by one game last season was their road record. The Nuggets opened the new season on Wednesday by taking care of business away from home as they rallied in the fourth quarter and defeated the Los Angeles Clippers 107-98. When everything's not going well they find ways to win,'' said Paul Millsap, who had 11 points and 16 rebounds.
