Nuggets Analysis: Jokic coming off a triple-double game

For the reigning champion Nuggets, who had just suffered 3 straight losses, the All-Star Break came at the perfect moment. After taking the week off to refuel in preparation for a 2nd-half surge to defend their World Title, the Nuggets dropped to 4th place in the Western Conference. The Nuggets’ home game versus the Washington Wizards marked the beginning of their post-All-Star Break schedule. With a 38-point first quarter, the Nuggets got out to a fast start and won to snap their losing streak. The victory came courtesy of a triple-double from All-Star center and MVP favorite Nikola Jokic before the 3rd quarter was half over.

 

Trail Blazers Analysis: On a 6-game losing run

The Trail Blazers’ previous 6 games have ended in losses. The team led by Chauncey Billups lost their most recent game, 128-91, just before the All-Star break. They’ll be hoping that the week-long break has given them ample time to address their weaknesses. The Blazers’ record as of right now is 15-39. They have the 2nd-worst point total in the league, averaging 107.9. But the main thing that has set them apart is their defense. Portland’s 116.7 points surrendered puts them in 17th place. Scoot Henderson, Malcolm Brogdon, and Rayan Rupert are the three most recent players to be ruled out of the game. The Blazers will surely utilize the remaining month and a half to examine their roster and determine who should stay and who they should let go of now that the playoffs are out of the question.
