The Nuggets lost for the third straight time as they fell against the Nets (120-122). Nikola Jokic recorded a massive triple-double of 35 points, 20 rebounds and 11 assists but it wasn’t enough for the Western Conference leaders.
Denver’s head coach Michael Malone was disappointed with the way his team has been defending for the last three games.
“The last 3 games our defense has been non-existent,” he said, per Katy Winge
Despite losing three-times in a row, the Nuggets remain the first seed in the West with 5-game advantage over the Grizzlies.
