    Default Huffing and puffing

    25 points and 13 rebounds in the first half with 3 assists. Not nearly enough though for the Nuggets as the team is down 17.

    Aaron Gordon 0-8 while the bench collectively went 0-7 in the half.

    That's the way basketball goes sometimes.

    And he had a really bad game. Probably the worst of the season when he wasn't ejected or in foul trouble. On a normal night this would've been a 50/20 triple double.

    An awful performance from the Nuggets as a team, too. Not looking championship caliber at all atm.

    And no, it wasn't a very good game from him yet again. It was okay but nothing spectacular. At least he cut back on his 3 point attempts. He went 17/29 and 3 of his misses came off of impossible, end of the shotclock tries. There is room for improvement.

    but at least conditioning is something he can't improve!

    He either huffed or puffed his way to 8 (eight) assists in the 1st (first) quarter. (6/3/8)

    The Nuggets are a totally different team if Reggie Jackson doesn't slow them down. They are moving, running... good stuff.

    Let's give Reggie some credit for merking the clippers. He is fine as a scorer off the bench but obviously doesn't fit well with the starters.

    He is a better player than he is a fit on this team. On the second unit I'm okay with him. Wouldn't play him much alongside Jokic though. BTW, I think the Clippers would do better with Harden off the bench instead of Westbrook. Same reason.

    No. I just found huffing and puffing funny and as Jokic and Embiid are the two players I watch most, I dedicated one thread to Jokic. I'll post about him here, no need for a new thread every other night.

    He has 17 and 7 with 12 assists and a block at the half.

    Finished with 32/10/15 with 5 minutes left of the game. Lead was too big.

    Defending a guy who was parked behind the arc was eating into his rebounding tonight. He huffed and puffed pretty well otherwise. If he keeps developing at this right, he might end up being pretty good at basketball.

    He had a game when he was in serious foul trouble for no reason and the next one when he was ejected for... very little reason. What ifs are bad but here is one anyway: In those two games he had

    18/10/7
    9/5/5

    Let's pretend those two games never happen. He sits out or something. His averages would be: 30.9 / 13.9 / 9.6 which is very close to 31/14/10. And he is not playing out of this world for his standards, he is not at the level he was in the playoffs last year. Still, even with those two bad games included, I think he has the highest PER and highest fantasy points ever. I'm not a fan of those stats or any advanced stats for that matter... but here is a list of some of the things he leads the league in:

    FG made
    Rebounds
    TDs
    Win Shares
    Box +/-
    VORP
    PER
    FP

    He is only 3rd in assists per game but the Nuggets missed tons of easy shots this year.

    It will be interesting to see his peak year. I think we haven't seen it yet.
