With an 8-2 record, among the top within the Western Conference, the Denver Nuggets have had a stress-free start to the campaign.

The Nuggets were headed as usual by Nikola Jokic. In a losing effort, Jokic recorded his 4th triple-double of the year with 36 points, 21 rebounds, along with 11 assists. With 19.1 seconds remaining, Jokic made a 3-pointer to bring the Nuggets within 103-102, but that proved to be the closest the team would reach.
