    Well Jokic is gonna make the right plays, regardless of what the stats end up looking like. The Wolves may force the ball out of his hands, in which case he's not gonna have a lot of points, and if his teammates dont make shots, he wont have a lot of assists. Plebs will think it's a bad game. But there's very little chance he doesnt play hard or doesnt play correct.

    It's really all up to Jamal Murray.

    When he's playing well, it allows the rest of the Nuggets to play roles theyre comfortable in, and theyre a very good team when they do that. Murray has to make shots, it's that simple.

    And the best way to do that is to not put pressure on himself. Last year he had no pressure because he was coming back from injury, and they werent the defending champs. He could just be himself. And he was ballin. This year he's pressing too hard to fulfill the 'Playoff Murray' appellation. He's shorting a lot of his runners and easy bunnies, which is a sign of anxiousness. He's gotta understand it's just a basketball game. If they lose, they shake the other team's hand and head to Cancun. It's really not a disastrous outcome in the bigger picture of life. Just go out there, relax, and play. Live with the results. Dont fear them.

    The Nuggets are winning if Jokic has 15+ rebounds and 10+ assists. Points scored is secondary, low 20s is enough. If the rebounds and the assists are not there, Denver is going to lose. If they do, they do. Good team.

    Actually, it was Wade that led the Heat in scoring and assists when Lebron finally got past the Celtics in the 2011 Playoffs.

    That's like Bird coming along and leading the Bulls when MJ finally got past the Pistons.
