The Denver Nuggets were not at their best in Game 2 of the opening round of the 2020 NBA playoffs versus the Utah Jazz.

Michael Malone, the head coach of the Nuggets, talked afterwards about playing smart on defense, getting his superstars involved in offense and facing the “red-hot” Donovan Mitchel, who finished the contest with 30 points.

Nuggets are going to face Utah again on Friday for Game 3 of the 1st round matchup.
