"Let them play. Let the players play Well, I agree with you, but You make me nervous because the Nuggets have had a couple of fouls. Laid here that you just shaking your head on so Not to switch. Watch. Sure the back doors too. Here we go. I'm Jamal. I'm going. I mean inbounds from Michael Westbrook to point our from Russell Westbrook. 2.1 on the game. Inbound appeal goes baseline. Oh, my God. Here we go Way. That is foul on Michael Green. What a smart play by Bradley Beal, but Come on now gets come on. The ball cannot go that direction. There's 1/10 of a second love. So one free throw puts this thing away. And Bradley Beal hit two of them, causing hands on the call there. Has heard right here on extra sports 1300. I'll be gold earned. If the Denver Nuggets didn't do it again. They had all the elements of a 2020 2021 Denver Nuggets game. Huge performance scoring by Nicole Yokich. Big lead squandered game loss to an inferior opponent. I mean it just across every list and in here because I want to get more use out of my mad lib. Mad lib that I created. Nicole Yokich is 33 points were not enough Wednesday as the Nuggets, who are without Paul Millsap fell to the Wizards by final score of 1 30. 21 28. The Nuggets are now four and six. Window. Culleoka scores over 30. You know so much discussion over the wizard squandering all of Bradley bills, Great games. The Washington Wizards are seven and nine when Bradley Beal scores over 30. That's a winning percentage of 44%. That's better. Then the clip. The Nuggets are playing four They went 40% of the games. In which Nicole Yokich scores over 30 points. And on top, it wasn't just squandering and Nicole Yokich 30 point performance. They also squandered Jamal Murray's 35 point performance. And I appreciate Bill Hanzlik on that call. You know why? Because so much conversation after the game was about how The referees blew it. What terrible calls And I went back and I watched and I watched Those air fouls in today's MBA. I'm sorry. Like Khan said. You hope they let him play. But you know what? It was a foul. It was a foul on Jermichael green, and I don't want to hear anything other than that, And even if it wasn't a foul Even if it was an egregious call. One are the Denver Nuggets doing Being up by 14 points to one of the worst teams in the league. And losing that bass. Even that game being in the balance late in the game, they were down by 10. If not for Jamal Murray, they would have gotten blown out. By the Washington Wizards. They had no business, so I don't care if it was the worst call in the history of the National Basketball Association. You have no business, even wedding that team back in the game, and not only did they let them back in the game they were trailing late in the fourth quarter. It took big shot after big shot after big shot from Jamal Murray just to get to the point that you heard right there. And it's it's bordering on hilarious that call. The one thing you don't want to see says Cause is a foul here, Tweet. He did again and look The Boston game. It was It was Michael Malone afterwards saying, You know, the guys play hard. We just Deanna Execute Didn't make enough shots. Well, there is no a for effort when it comes to last night's game, according Michael Malone, 0.6 seconds or we give up a layup, Alex Len off a three quarter dead ball aside and bounced away. That kind of sums up the entire second quarter, a lack of effort or lack of urgency of lack of care. Michael Malone. They're referring to the end of the second quarter, which was it wasn't the third quarter last night was the second quarter where the Nuggets imploded. So a little bit earlier than we usually expect. Which is good. I mean, get it on the way. As early as you can. It. Those three phrases he put out the end of that clip, a lack of urgency, a lack of effort, a lack of care. This is a team that's trying to contempt for a championship. Ladies and gentlemen, and they can't be bothered. Those phrases. Phrases should never be uttered about a team with championship aspirations. Lack of urgency, maybe lack of effort, you know, sometimes Lack of care. Well, you know, But all three in one game For a team that wants to win a championship. Can't have that. You look at the Jazz. They have the best record in basketball right now. Best record in basketball. You know how they've done it. Two wins against Atlanta two wins against New Orleans. They've beaten the next the Warriors, the Pistons and Charlotte. And that's just during this current streak hot streak that they're on. At Team Bad Team. Bad Team. Bad team, Mediocre Team, Bad team, bad team. The Jazz are feasting on the worst at the MBA has to offer. And then they're parlaying it. They're taking that moment. Um, And they're bringing it into their recent wins against Boston in Milwaukee, two teams that the Nuggets failed to be just a few days ago. And they've also beaten Miami filly in the Clippers. It's not like the Jazz. They played the Lakers once. This season. You're not playing the most difficult schedule in the MBA. Neither the Denver Nuggets.

"Hundred. Drivetime sports here on Xtra sports thirteen hundred not another Aaron on Twitter. Good because I can't deal with anymore errands. Not another Aaron on Twitter says I'm sick of nuggets not getting the attention they deserve. But it's not always being bad being underdogs. Look at the Super Bowl fifty Broncos. Like, I said I'm going to sit here and complain about it still like that's not stopping. I'm still going to re tweet things that show a level of disrespect like Damian Lillard ze. Two more points than Nicole Yokich isn't enough. But I really hope that it always continues. Because it's it's who they are. And they use his motivation. I'm totally cool with that. And it's guys like the one. That's joining me now that perpetuate this fraud city stuff at Mars from Denver stiffs in the locked on nuggets podcast joins me. Now. Adam be honest. It's just us talking here. I you get irritated with the amount of disrespect the nuggets get on a national level. But secretly you want it to continue because this team thrives on it, right? Oh hundred percent. I won't even take away the first part of that. Yeah. Another. City in terms of the NBA or fly over city. I think there could be an underdog and the fact that they were year one fifty four game in some ways, it has placed them and their fan base into this weird situation of being a front runner, despite the fact that prior to laugh series, they had never even made the playoffs or won a playoff here. So that's what the fraud city stuff is all about so many different high profile people at called the nuggets fraud. And I it's kind of a way of both throwing that back at all of the doubters, but also reducing that underdog status for the baggage where I just think there could be can we go to Denver stiffs and get the shirt, by the way. Of course, you have a great local artist Eli co create those they're they're really really cool. Oh, they're fantastic. And he is done tons of stuff for the nuggets, obviously. But they're you know, if your fans of some of the other Denver teams he's done stuff with those as well. So Denver stiffs dot com, by the way, if you want to pick up the front city shirts, they're pretty epic. So let's let's talk about the game last night. That the defensive tactics employed by Michael Malone. Gary Harrison, Damian Lillard, Tori, Craig on CJ McCollum were you surprised at that at all? And do you think that it's something that will continue throughout the series? Well, actually, flip that Corey Craig on on Damian Lillard and no, right? Right. Sorry. But I'm not surprised by it. Really? I think the better player, and I think down the stretch you'll see Gary hairs guarding here. But one of the things you have to do when you're having a leak guard like that you want to try to put as much length as you as you can obviously length and reach those things provide just a little extra margin for error and at forty Craig I think getting good, and then also we saw in the foul. Trouble. Damian Lillard would put Gary Harris. Anybody that guard him is going to have a hard time guarding him contesting shots without fouling. And you eat dairy hairs go look four of an important player or the two way player. So, you know, I think it's smart to sort of start out with him on. On the other side. Is there are there? Any adjustments coming from the blazers when it comes to nickel Yokich? Oh, absolutely the playoffs. They're all about adjustments. And that's what makes the NBA game in particular so much fun as in addition to being the physical and athletic matchup talent skill matchup. It's also a bit of a chess match of especially over the first three or four games when teams really start to tinker and figure out their strategy. But yeah, I think for the blazers what's nice about the nuggets. And what I think a lot of people are sort of learning about Nicola Yokich, and this nuggets team is that Yokich is one of the most versatile offensive players in the NBA. There's not a break Popovich talked about this rave about it and their series. There's not a defense for Nicole. Yo you can try to they try to double team him early on. He put up fourteen fifteen fifteen assistant fourteen fifth in those games. So then they said, okay, we'll guard him straight up. We're not going to send the help. We will make him beat. If you have forty three point. So there's whatever you do. It's sort of pick your poison type situation with him and the blazers this. One tried to use the NS Kanter and said, okay? Well, let's see if Yokich competed. He goes out for thirty seven points. I think in the next game that judgment. I think they might try to make the one I would intimidate them making his guarding him with alpha community who's a smaller guy a better defensive player, but he's such an important part of their both their office and their defense and just like with Lillard when you put one of your important to players on the best player on the other team you risk getting in foul trouble. If yo- construct styles on amino early in that game. Blazers are really hampered. Anamour is joining us. He's the host of locked on nuggets podcasts. Also part of the Denver stiffs crew. Joining us here on drive time sports, given the potential adjustments that the blaze you think the blazers will make how important was it to have Paul Millsap have the game. He had last night. Well, that's what's kind of interesting. Why Amina switches a great defender of years Bill really took it to him in that first quarter ten points. I think in the quarter most of those is right out of you know, a meter with good defensively. Maybe that's a bad batch of former maybe they think, okay? We'll we'll put them on Yokich, and we'll see real to go around the bigger NS Kanter. But it is huge. I I've said all your when your kitchen Murray play. Well, Denver is really really good production from one other guy there almost unbeatable in last night. The story of the game to me with the chemistry between ovary and the coal Yokich. We've seen really all season long. But especially in the December to January months, I think that's what those two really clicked and figured out their chemistry last night's game. In my opinion, was advocate as we've seen a two man game in the pick and roll between those two guys assist back and forth each other's unstoppable offense. But then when you get that third guy. By whether it's Gary Harris, Maliki Beasley last night. Paul millsap. Denver doesn't just win. They usually win big. You just gotta stop asking him about him in Jamal Murray, though, Adam I mean. Was that? Did you ask that was that you last night or who didn't of course, not? There's a lot of new media town, right? With with the playoff a lot of new people who maybe, you know, have haven't followed the team as closely. I'll just say you. You get a lot of these like repeat questions we saw this with Gregg Popovich game set at somebody asked him about the coal yoga. He talked about Nicole Yokich every single pregame postgame. The whole theory is finally guys just copy each other's notes s somebody around you said this one hundred times that was more or less Yokich is response last night when he was asked about Murray. Everybody writes this down I answered this question one hundred times in the last few weeks. So it's kind of funny. I liked the little light humorous prickliness. Would you like I know you love covering the nuggets, obviously? But would you enjoy the Spurs beat? Man. No. The Spurs are second in my opinion in the NBA only through the Oklahoma City thunder in a PR stuff that is so protective of their team. They almost don't air about coverage up six nine every interview Gregg Popovich, I kinda liked that he keeps everybody on his toes. But at the same time, you know, not everybody is is doesn't eight plus job at their job every single day in great Popovich is one of those guys if you trip up even just here's the wrong word in your question. You know, he's gonna blow up so as much as I find it funny. I would not enjoy being on that beat three hundred sixty five days a year. Yeah. It's like I watch those and I'm like, well, do you really want to sit there and pepper Gregg Popovich with questions after they lose a game seven like it's not fun. No matter who the coaches to rehash the most crushing loss of their season. But it's like, nobody's even asking questions out of got one question out of the gate. Then everybody was quiet. It's like it's got to be just terrible to be on the on the Spurs beat. But there was a pre game pre-game presser where he didn't get a single question came in. He sat down for about five seconds and got up and left. Nobody had anything because nobody wanted to risk it. I guess and and I'm trying to get them on the show because he's getting inducted in the air force hall of fame this weekend. We'll see how well that goes with that PR Steph. Well, that's a near and dear to his heart for sure, right? I think it's getting through the wall of the PR staff is what I'm more worried about. I think Popovich would love to talk about his days at air force. But we'll we'll see. Well, Adam really appreciate the time. And the inside I would encourage listeners very much to fall you on Twitter at Adam underscore Mars. Great. You know, breakdown of of what's going on with the nuggets right now backed up by video evidence you become such a better fan following Adam. And then don't forget to catch them on the walked on nuggets podcast and check out. He and everybody at Denver stiffs such a great job. They have done all year long covering this nuggets team. And they're trolling Nick. Right. Which is obviously fantastic atom. Always. Appreciate it bud and enjoy game to coming up tomorrow night. Thanks so much. Really? Appreciate it. You bet. Anna more September stiffs joining us here on drive time sports. Yeah, we can complain. But in the end, we don't we don't want it to go away. We want the nuggets to remain disrespected. It's even though you think. These are grown men who are getting paid millions of dollars to play game. It's like. Just make me a horse clown. Or what's the what's the line from what what is the kid one on wedding crashers, Vince to make them just? Make me bicycle clown. There it is it's like we just want them to play like why do you have to take offense? But at the same time, it's such a powerful thing in sports to feel disrespected into feel like you are not getting the love that you deserve. And I think just like we wouldn't want it any other way. I don't think the nuggets Hanway. I think Mike Malone loves it. Mike Malone is the biggest fan of front city of anybody. So two eight six zero zero four six your thoughts on the nuggets. And Chris Harris got a few.

"He's got six points. Yeah. I can't I can't sell that. Molik Beazley's got seven off the bench nine points for thrill. You got four for Monte Moore's, but more importantly, Nicole Yokich as is leading everybody. Well, now tied with Lillard thirty one a piece so Lillard got thirty one. I just said something nice about will thrilling throws the ball away. Don't do that will make me look back. Again. I don't what are delay. Is that people are watching this game and listening to me? I don't know if that's really happening. But. The right now thirty one points for Dame thirty one points for joker. The two best players on the floor going toe to toe. That's what you wanna see gotta see production from other players Paul Millsap, Scott nineteen he second on the nuggets. Mom, or he's got seventeen looked at. My my buddy Michael couvert who produces these executive producer over on AM, seven sixty. That's the station. You hear me from ten to one weekdays with Steve atwater. He said something that I thought was very appropriate about the nuggets. He said they go as Jamal Murray goes now Joe yoga chasta to have his production. There's no question about that. But if Murray who by the way, his down right now, please get up Jamal. If Murray struggles the nuggets will lose and you saw that in the Spurs series. Oh, yeah. He got. He just got jacked cross the chin out your sometimes. Maybe a little bit. But sometimes NBA players, you know, maybe they don't wanna know this or say this about themselves, but they do have a little bit acting that happens. It's like in soccer where you see the guy like flavor while place because you know, somebody brushed up against him as they walked by. Well as kind of like that too. There's a little bit of acting if you're wrestlemainia fan, you know, exactly what I'm talking about. It's all real sorry. In that case Jabil actually did look like he got he got hit across the chin with a with an elbow there. There's there's clearly context, right? Go nuggets. They're leading right now. What nine ninety six? So they're they're hoping to obviously close us out torque as only got three points a starter. But that's not why he's in. I'd still like to see more production from Tory Craik seventeen minutes in the game will be interesting to follow. How they do the rotations. How Mike Malone does is rotations here for the nuggets in this series because river we'll Barton started off the series against the Spurs in the starting lineup. He was eventually benched in favor of Tory Craig just tended to fit them a little bit better on what they were trying to do defensively. Now, I'm wondering with Portland who wants to play a little more uptempo? They've got they've got some legit scores. They got some guys that are going to try to break with their scoring if that's the direction they they continue to go. I like to see me Beasley little extra run in starting lineup ni-. He's gives you some punch off the bench. I respect that. But I think Milly Beasley has earned an opportunity to potentially. Now you've courses also to you'd be playing him at the three. And I don't know if that's necessarily the most prudent move that Mike Malone Kadduh Pule really have a lot of small forwards anyways on this team. Barton's a bit of a a Twitter, right? Beasley would be the next kind of guy. And then it said story Craig I mean until mpg Michael porter junior is available next year. That's basically what's going. What's going to be? But they got to close this one out and really game twos. Came to kind of crucial to I mean, like, I said Portland. And playing at Portland is is not the you're you're not guaranteed anything over there. Just like you weren't do. You realize Angie that the nuggets had not one in San Antonio since two thousand and twelve what really they didn't even been in longer than I think it was like two thousand seven was the last time the nuggets had one in San Antonio in the playoffs so hit pin? And I'm terrible at math. Carry the one I think twelve years since they had one in San Antonio playoffs. To longtime at is. Now, they finally got they exercise of demons. They got one win in a series. And that's all they really needed. They've got the one win and they were able to win and seven, but the point is when you're a younger team and the nuggets are get this the eighth youngest team in the history of the NBA playoffs. The eighth youngest. Now is an interesting thing with that. Because on one hand you could explain away a loss in their opening series. Maybe even in this series. But I'll counter that with you never really know when you're going to get back there. You never really know. Injuries happen things happen over the course of a season. I'm not trying to go to cliche on you here, but the nuggets to play this series as if they never get back to the semis because. Yeah, they're going to have Michael porter, jR with them next year who's going to be the small forward, and he looks like he competed absolute beast in this league. I mean, it gets projection because. Just coming from college. He hasn't played in the pros yet. But you're you're going to be better next year. And fact, the play you have this year, you might even attract a free agent or two that wants to complete for the nuggets L that house long's it been I mean, Paul Millsap Paul Millsap was arguably the greatest free agent signing in the history of the nuggets talking about an all star Calver player signing when he's still an all star caliber player. This wasn't him coming to the nuggets. Now granted it's it's later in his career. He's still playing a high level Lanta when he signed with the nuggets. So so it's not the nuggets have not been able to attract top in talent in a long time. But now the coli Yokich Jamal, Marie Kerry, Harris and Paul Millsap there. Kind of opening surmise. And they they probably could use a pretty solid three. I bring Michael Puerto unless Michael porzingas ready to go. I bring him off the bench next year because you know, he's still young. And he hasn't played in the NBA, all it's all projection. I'd rather have somebody in here that could contribute right away. But the point being it would be very easy for a lot of us to explain away the nuggets and say, it's okay. The eighth youngest team in the history of the NBA playoffs it it's okay. Next year textures their year. That's that's ridiculous. I it's it's insanity. You can't say that. Because what if they don't get back there? What if they don't get back in this position? The thing that the nuggets have that is really really working for them is this path to the Western Conference finals that they somehow lucked into now there's a little bit of design, but they need. And a lot of help to make it happen. They got the Spurs which was a pretty favorable matchup considering the Spurs are this year. They're definitely not the team that was going to win the championship. And the the thing is they didn't have to face either the rockets or the warriors in the semi-final round. They were getting Portland now Portland is a good team, but they had their flaws. They're not Golden State and they're not Houston, which both teams would blow the doors off the nuggets. And that's the thing about this. Even win win the nuggets, I say not if win the nuggets win this series against Portland. They're going to face either the warriors or the rockets, and that's not that's not a good deal. But the thing is at least you get them there. At least you get to the Western Conference finals that experiences valuable. So this isn't this isn't an orange slices argument. Cannot not sending you're saying. Hey, look, it's great that you showed up. Everybody gets orange slices and juice boxes. Okay. You can have plenty of those you've earned it your professional basketball player. Bless you, by the way. It's not it's not me saying there's an orange slices. You showed up -gratulations. Here's your slice. You know, go go sit on the bench and chill out for a little bit. And just soak in the sun, and the butterflies that's not what I'm saying. I'm saying that the nuggets should have a bit more of a killer mentality because they are the two seed they should they've earned some respect to this year. They've been a very very good team, and they have better depth than the Portland trailblazers. And I think they win this series. But they're going to have to somehow carry that momentum, and they're gonna have to get a little lucky. And that I hate saying it, it's just it's just kind of where it is. But the NBA predates that because they don't wanna see the nuggets in the finals anyways, the NBA wants to see Golden State again, again Q the IRO nobody wants to see Golden State in the finals. But oh boy. Wouldn't it be great Katy Steph when this dynasty, they're building for what it's worth Golden State by the NBA standards. It should never have happened. Golden State is not the major market if it was up to David Stern knowledge. He's not the current NBA commission. But he's the one that's set all this in motion. If it's up to David Stern Steph curry, Kevin Durant trae mongering, Klay Thompson, all these players would all be in LA playing for the Lakers. If is up to him. That is what the NBA wants. But I really really want the nuggets to mess it all up so desperately. How great would that be? And they would've earned it. Despite the fact that the model is built to break them frigging Kuhlman one thirteen to one zero four with three twenty remaining hit us up on the text line. If you wanna react to any of that tomorrow night. We're going to be back here following the Rockies. Hopefully, it's it's following a win against the dreaded Milwaukee Brewers of the Milwaukee Brewers so good their bullpen pitching Christian yelich the MVP from last year. It's got a bum back. He's all banged up. You're thinking sets a pretty nice, you know, not facing the best baseball the best player in baseball right now. And as I mentioned at the start of the show. The Rockies must have had a similar feeling because they took on. Hey, Seuss Aguilar as though. He was not to be paid attention to understandable, his one fifty six batting average. He he's he's barely look in. Desmond has a terrible batting average. And it's better than hey, Suzanne, galore, like everybody sits there goes. Like what's wrong with the Desmond? Why is this guy not hitting the ball? He's sue sag. Lars, one fifty six in Desmond's got a one ninety. In.

"Monte Moore's hasn't left side of the mid court circle. Put it out there by long locker. There's a pseudo zone defense. Again, throws it over to Harris back out on top Monte inside the art Yokich, kickout Beasley goes baseline dunk to but not gonna count stepped out of balance starting his drive so back to back turnovers for Denver such good vision by Nicole Yokich there to recognizing that Patty mills was up defensively Maliki snuck right behind him, really unfortunate that he inbounds. They always do that tracks start we step back before you go with a running start to it. Yeah. Erna follow did that at least twice a game. When he was here. Drove me crazy, Patty mills has it on the high right side at the mid court circle. Bertrand's answered off the he'll take three jumpers up. No, good rebound comes down to Tori. Craig? I don't know. Katie. Maybe they will shoot the three this. That's exactly. Teams through the lane goes Monte Moore's to Beasley for three that was too strong. And there's a foul on the rebound on Jaka Pertile. He was grabbing onto the arm of Mason flow motor, and that's another area. Win team is playing zone that you really have an advantage because it's much harder to find a body to box out when you're guarding and area. So the never have done a pretty good job of crashing the offensive glass. In getting extra opportunities. Mason Plumlee last night, ten points.

They want a game over the weekend. They they didn't have Jamal Murray or Gary Harris, and they I was there, and they beat the crap out of the rockets and they damn near snap heart streak. They're they're mad that they didn't. And that was the game after Malone might Malone after that game says we we've been everybody we we'd beaten all comers because it was the first one over the rockets and nine games and the bucks or quote, quote was like two has. I guess they hadn't been Milwaukee. But anyways, call Yokich is the third place finisher here. The man who previously his best clutch moments only came in Gatorade commercials. But man, he's had some talking all George, of course, had forty three points. Forty one minutes. He had that four point play with five seconds left to beat Philly in Philly. That was his second Gatorade commercial moment in the season after he was for a whole bunch potential game winning shots in the last ten seconds coming in. And you know, again, I think hardens the clue cut favourite for MVP at this point. I think Janas number two Paul George in Yokich to me that's three four and what whenever order you want to discuss right there. But this maybe the biggest honor his career, despite the fact that is rain MVP James harden is getting Kahane's factor player of the month. For January yet again. I mean, the storing the score and was ridiculous all month long averaged forty three I think forty three point six six hundred points in a month something that hadn't been done since Michael Jordan, March of eighty seven but in clutch, sixty points, thirty seven minutes, and we all watch what he did in Oakland that game in and of itself to drill the game winner from my twenty nine feet out with Draymond green all in his face. Klay Thompson up and his grill. That's the cone factor shot of the season, so far so -gratulations James harden. Put this mythical trophy right next to MVP trophy York after he made that shot too. A quality quality trash talk after he made that Jackie. Certainly very impressive presentation there for Mr. MacKay was argue, although I would say, and I know it's not always has to be on the court, but we should have given Anthony Davis. Honorable mention for just the cojones is not true trade, but having the machine working on overdrive to get him where he wants that takes Davis senior gets. I deducted points from Anthony Davis because I wasn't impressed with his press performance. Okay. You've got the cone is to make this happening..

"Drive time sports of the year. Twenty nineteen off to a great start good. I our wheels. And Ryan with you in studio. This will actually be our final hour on the airwaves because Harvard in North Carolina in hoops. Of Harvard my safety school against North Carolina this evening that was your safety school. Do you believe me, not even close? My you ended up. My New Year's resolution is to try and make people believe something completely fantastical about myself. That was my first attempt. Wordy right. I know you too. Okay. Pipe down over there. I'm gonna say it, and let certain listeners be like you to well too. Right. Just say, you know, what would harbor be a safety school for like, I get the jokes with a Yale in whatever. Harvard vice safety school. I went to Yale like, Cambridge or Oxford. Yeah. Probably. Harvard is as safety school to anybody in the United States now there so bone maybe in in Paris. But if you if you're in the US, if you go to school, and you say it was your safety school. You're lying. That's true harbored and North Carolina coming up at four forty five. And then we have the Avs and sharks. The ads have lost five four five five in a row now. All the bad teams to and it's just one very much as Vegas was in there. True. So. Mostly bad teams. And it's a one goal. I mean, I know it's it's a lot. It seems that way very much because like especially against the kings and against the Blackhawks. That it was a an overtime goal that ended up beating them. But if you look at the Avs over like, it's not just the OT goals. It's always like one goal that. You're just like why why did you give that up grew Bauer or Varlamov? So frustrating times for the app. So have another guy. That's like brand new Frank who's? Yeah. That's right. He didn't farewell on his. The war. Yeah. It's dubois. So Avs tonight. Last night the Denver Nuggets with a victory over the hapless, New York knickerbockers, welcome back. Emmanuel moody, take the l on the way out. Dakota Yokich last night. Did something that only Larry Bird. Has done. And Larry Bird. Did it twice for the record his stat line last night? I mean. Pull this thing up. So I get it. Right. Because with Yokich it's every column has something in nineteen points, fourteen rebounds, fifteen assists, three blocks that stat line right there. Has only been done. Or Nicole Yokich is the only person to do that in the NBA sense. Larry Bird did that twice. David phys. Del take that for data guy is now the head coach of the Knicks. I don't know if you knew that he called him a seven foot three Magic Johnson Nicola Yokich is not like the rest of us. And if there's one guy going into the year twenty nineteen that is most vital to the future of his team. It is Nicole Yokich. He's just not normal. And in the best way. Possible is definitely not a normal center now ages, and 'cause you tweeted something out last night. Right. Stamp new stat muse had this. I'm glad you brought that yes, I'm about triple doubles. I centers this year. Was that what I think it's? Yeah. Yeah. Le-? Let me see if I it wasn't too far away. The other thing I wanna talk about in. This segment was the discussion that I've been having dates, and I got scroll past that here. It is triple doubles since two thousand fifteen twenty six Nicole Yokich has nineteen every other NBA center combined. It's twenty two. Yeah. That's insane. He's not a normal center. No, not normal at all and the nuggets. And I think what would be a move. This seems to me like connecting dots rather than I'm hearing. But their reports today based on the report from Mark Stein of the New York Times, Mark Stein of the the New York Times says that the Cavaliers are willing to listen on Kevin love they will deal Kevin love for the right price. I hate that. Because that's what John Harbaugh is available for right? The right price brace. Yeah. It could be exorbitant. Well, everybody's available for the right price though. Ain't that the truth? Just how high is that price. Yeah. To me, if people are drawing connections, like remember when the nuggets before they signed Paul Millsap tried to land Kevin love in a three way deal, which would have facilitated Paul George going to Cleveland. If you remember this. I didn't like the move in. Because I didn't like the idea of the nuggets like they did with Dwight Howard going the Lakers now that end up hurting anybody right because Dwight Howard was a complete disaster in LA, but the nuggets were that third facilitating team that made a star go join with other stars. And I didn't like that the nuggets were going to do that again and get Paul George in Cleveland. Reportedly it was. It was cranky. And it was the Pacers owner Simon who pulled who pulled the plug on the whole deal. Cavs were game Connolly was game. The Pacers GM was game and cranky and the Pacers owner pulled the plug. I believe is even more the Pacers owner pulled the plug on it. More than cranky. But I think Kroenke was like an like that deal either. But. There are people connecting dots today that Kevin love. Would be interesting to the Denver Nuggets. And. I think that. That is absolutely a good idea. And here's why and I. And I know a lot of you gonna say Steve is already sound the text line. I'll get to that in a second. Kevin love fits better with Nicole Yokich than Paul Millsap. Paul Millsaps does not stretch the floor the way Kevin love does. Kevin love. Also, let's not underplay this at all. Kevin love has championship experience. I know that everybody that plays LeBron has championed ship experience. But if the nuggets are serious about going after the warriors and saying we're going to take on this team. We're gonna take this team head on. And we're going to try to beat them this year. I think to make that swap because that's what you're doing here. You would be basically trading Paul Millsap four Kevin love, and what the nuggets would have to take on is a contract that lasts for more than this year. Paul Millsap has an expired basically expiring it's a team option. So whatever team has the right to Paul Millsap right now. It's the nuggets they can say we're not having you back. And that's what the nuggets are going to do with Paul Millsap. They're either going to say you're going to. Very much restructure your deal to make it team friendly or you are gone that is what the nuggets are going to do with Paul Millsap. There's no way he gets paid thirty million dollars next year. No way. So what the nuggets would be doing is saying we're going to trade Paul Millsap four Kevin love, maybe the Cavaliers need a young piece may be me. Beasley to be thrown to be enticed to make the move by. That's the move. That would be made is basically you're trained Paul Millsap for Kevin love. And I think it's absolutely the right move. If this team is going to go after the Golden State Warriors because Kevin love is a better player than Paul Millsap. And he also fits better with the guy that we just talked about is not like the rest of us and not like the rest of his center peers in the NBA in Nicole Yokich because Kevin love can hit the three with more regularity than Paul Millsap, can and he can rebound almost as well. You're giving up a little bit on the rebounding side, certainly low bid on the defensive side, but you're gaining more. When it comes to a fit with Yokich and the rest of the team. Let's be honest here. Jamal Murray leads the NBA in hockey assists, secondary assists. This is a team that likes to move the basketball Paul Millsap does not do that as well as extending love. So if you're trying to look at the Denver Nuggets and say, okay, they're staying in first place. That's great. What? Can they do? To make themselves better. There's not many things other than waiting for. Isaiah Thomas will Barton. They got Gary Harris back last night. The one move that they can make that makes sense and should be fairly easy to pull off is to swap Paul Millsap for someone else. And that someone else could be Kevin love. I think it's a great move and the obvious retort to it is Kevin love has been injured. But guess what Paul Millsap has been injured? So you're really taking the same injury risk with Kevin love that you are Paul Millsap. And if you're not keeping Paul Millsap, and he hasn't been that big of a contributor to the Denver Nuggets. I think that makes all the sense in the world to go out and get Kevin love. Because again, I think that the nuggets should I'm not saying they'll be successful. But they need to go after the warriors head on. They need to get to the Western Conference finals, and they need to play the Golden State Warriors. It's the best thing for the the the.

"Everybody the NBA restores out. But he doesn't every single night in so many ways. That's why. Players. I went back and looked and this is only a piece of the puzzle. But I found. Four guys. In the four guys in the NBA that are among the top twenty in at least three offensive categories. The only four of those guys, and it's Jaanus. Joel Embiid, Nicole Yokich in Anthony Davis. Lebron james. Is only in the top twenty in two different categories points per game in assists per game. So that's the list Jaanus is ranked. In the top ten in both points, and rebounds and his twentieth in assists. Anthony davis. Is in the top five in points and assists per game seventh and rebounding. He's not ranked in the top twenty in and says, then you have Joel Embiid who's top ten in. All I I li-. Joel Embiid is only in the top ten in two different categories so scratch him out. So there are three guys that rank in the top twenty in at least three major offense of categories Jaanus in points, rebounds, and assists. The brow in points, assists, and rebounds, and Yokich and rebounds. Assists. But he's not ranked in the top twenty in points per game. But when you look at Yokich, she's also in the top ten in player efficiency rating. So there's really only three maybe four guys Jaanus Embiid Davis in Yokich who who do a lot of things. Well, that's all that is about is that these are guys that are kind of the the unicorns the freaks that do everything for their teams. There's really only four guys in that discussion. We know LeBron's always going to be in the discussion. But like I said he's only ranked fifth in points per game. He's not in the top twenty in rebounds. And he's twelfth and assists. So certainly LeBron hasn't had that he could. But he hasn't had that impact on the Lakers that he's had for all those years on the Cavs. So I think I would say. Second. When Michael Malone said that Nicola Yokich deserves to be an MVP candidate. And people are starting to catch on a little bit too Yokich and the Denver Nuggets. The biggest problem as Stephen Adams showed the other day is that they have to get his name, right? We wanna Nicole have such such contrasting styles of and how you.

"This is Nicole Yokich from you're you're listening to Xtra sports thirteen hundred. Brad appear in the jungle sitting in for Jim Rome. Make sure you Email the show if you have anything you want to say Rome had to take dot com. Such as this one. Holy crap. Grant, you sound like get your bowl off my lawn guy. That was the best schedule of thanksgiving NFL games on a long time. Are we not entertained happy thanksgiving happy thanksgiving to you too? That's not my point. My point is division. Games are two important. I hate division games on Thursdays because more times than not you get a bad game on Thursday. And I just the importance of division games. I wanna see teams at full strength or close to it. And there are too many guys particularly at this time of the year that can't play on a Thursday after a Sunday game. You know, they were saying yesterday, you know, even though the pairs one they thought Mitchell Trubisky had the game bid on Sunday would play. I just don't like the vision of games on Thursdays. All right. Let's get you. Some phone calls. Eight hundred six three six eight six eight six we get to San Jose. And James James. Thanks for calling. The Jim Rome show. What's happening? Hey, what's up grant? I'm loving what you're Sacremento kings doing this year. We're beating teams like the Spurs. Okay. See keeping up with Memphis. I think they can make an ABC this year. What do you think? Well, it's going to take forty five wins in my opinion. And. Again, I know the seasons that even twenty five percent there. I would say that based on what I have seen in the Western Conference. And again, it's early but other than Golden State when there were full strength and Houston when they're at full strength. I haven't seen a team this year in the west that I think is oh my gosh. The kings can't beat them. They've already beat Oklahoma City twice once in Oklahoma City the other night in Sacramento, the thunder had just one ten of eleven they beat Memphis. Memphis right now is topped the Western Conference. They also lost a Memphis once they beat San Antonio. They have some very high quality wins. But the question I have James can they win forty five games because I really believe that with how good the west is. It's probably going to take forty five wins to get into the playoffs. I agree to more follow up questions was the win against Utah. The most impressive win of the season. And did you expect this type of production from Montgomery? I did not expect Iman Shumpert to be playing like this. I'm unbelievably surprised at what a big help. He has been a both ends of the floor. I did not expect that the jazz had just come off a five game road trip where they had a couple of real bad losses. And yet they won at Boston. And they want at Memphis, and you kind of like which jazz team will show up was I surprised. No. I wasn't surprised because the kings have been playing very well. And the last game the jazz had lost badly at Indiana. And they had been on the road a longtime generally speaking the first game back after a long road trip. You don't get the best of a team will see they play again in Sacramento on Sunday. But the kings play tomorrow night in Oakland against the warriors. Really? I'm not surprised when the kings are in a game against anyone again. There's maybe three or four. Teams that I think okay. The kings aren't going to be able to beat. I don't think they're going to be able to beat Milwaukee. I don't think they'll beat a team like Toronto. I don't think they'll be Golden State when they're at full strength, and again by full-strength, I'm talking about Steph curry, and I don't think they could beat Houston when there were at full strength other than those four teams. I think they're playing well enough and thanks for the call James where they can beat any team in the league as long as the earned FOX is on the floor. And by that I mean, he's not going to get hurt. He is that good. He has been that dynamic. I believe and again, I know it's crazy. We're sitting here we're not even to December yet if you were going to take the first twenty games of the season, and that's pretty much where we're at right now give or take a game. I really believe that the earned FOX is worthy of an all star. I I really that. That's how good he has been. He hasn't just been. Okay. He has been incredible. And I think that based on where his game is now without being able to have a crystal ball and determine how he's going to be leading up to the all star. Break right now, I think he's worthy of all-star consideration. Now this show you what type of an improvement. That is last year the earned FOX did not make the rookie sophomore all star game in Los Angeles. He actually was added to it. The I want to say it was the Wednesday before Friday because we were in Houston the kings were in Houston on a Wednesday night playing the rockets, and he was added that evening and he's from Houston. He had all these plans. And he's like, okay. Yeah. I'm going to go. That's but he was he didn't even make the rookie sophomore all star challenge last year. And here we are one year later, not even a year less than that. And what he has done to help this team in Sacramento. Get to ten eight is remarkable. And here's the other thing, you know, maybe you haven't watched the kings play a lot. And I get that. I understand, but you're missing out on an unbelievably exciting brand of basketball. They get the ball and they go their pace and their tempo. And the way they play is very entertaining. I had somebody asked me this last week can you win. And can you keep that up over a long period of time? And I said well didn't the Golden State Warriors haven't been doing that for years with their pace. I mean when the warriors, and again, I know that Steph curry is not playing now. But when Steph curry. In that amazing run which I think is still going on. But they just want a championship over. Let's say that four year stretch five year stretch keep it four years five years. Whatever you want. What was their pace? Like what did Steph curry do? All right now, you see a team like the Lanta hawks. They draft trae young. They wanna play that pace. And they have played that pace. You look at what Sacramento is doing. It's almost like what we're seeing the the way the NFL is going the NBA with some of the rule changes look at the average scoring in the NBA. If you don't score one hundred points, it's very very difficult to win now in the NBA. You can there's been a couple of times. But my point is you generally speaking has to score well over a hundred points to win in the NBA right now. And the Aaron FOX and the way he plays is absolutely incredible. It's amazing. He did he had a dunk the other night against the jazz where he only used three dribbles and I'm not exaggerating literally went through five Utah Jazz players because they could not keep up. They could not. They they couldn't keep up with the guy. And the NBA right now is about scoring you can say all you want. Well, gee, you gotta have defense. I get that. I get that. But are you kidding me? Go watch go watch the kings play on Thursday night when they're on TNT against the clippers and watch the pace and watch the Aaron FOX because what he is doing is. Absolutely incredible. And are the kings went into championship this year. No, they're not they're ten and eight, but the NBA boy the way the games are being played right now. Go watch Milwaukee play with the Greek freak and tell me that's not unbelievable. You know, they just put what one forty three on a unbelievably talented Portland team Wednesday night. Go watch Milwaukee play. You haven't watched them a walkie bucks play. If you have not watched Yana says that a coup Mbo play you're missing out because this guy is scary. Speaking of the NBA, we're gonna talk a lot more about that. Howard. Beck is come on. We love talking NBA basketball with Howard Beck. So that is coming on in the next segment. Start of our number three. We're going to go with Brian Baldinger NFL network, and then we'll have a couple of segments for your phone calls at eight hundred six three six eight six eight six bottom of the hour.

Paul George of Oklahoma City Thunder sides with Jimmy Butler

"Reports have. Surfaced, George Sodano from ESPN is the main source of this. He says that the heat and the timber wolves had a deal done for Jimmy Butler. The two teams were exchanging medicals, which is the universal sports. Signed of a trade is done is. Now, let's make sure that this guy doesn't have a need. That's about to explode. They were exchanging the medicals and Tom tibidow called Pat Riley and asked for an additional piece to throw in at the last minute in the deal, Pat Riley called him in for and hung up. The phone on him. But as you've read reports all week for major awards and asking others. The two teams will certainly the heat hope to reengage with the timber wolves here before too long. My question is. How long till the nuggets get in there. How long till the nuggets decide you know, what let's throw our hat into the ring we have been through this as an organization before at some point this situation becomes untenable with a superstar that wants out the nuggets dealt with that with Carmelo Anthony. So. Could we potentially take advantage because my my guess is? That the nuggets have. You know, thrown at taxed maybe sent a Facebook message to the timber wolves. My guess is they haven't pushed very hard. Nothing more than just overtures and normal GM GM speak. Because one if you believe reports the nuggets label, Gary Harris is untouchable along with Nicole Yokich Jamal Murray, which I think is a nice thought, but. Let's be fair. At what those three guys are one of those guys does not have as high as ceiling as the other two, right? Like, I love Gary Harris. And I love what he's become but to label. Gary Harris untouchable is a little bit. Surprising. So there's that. But then there's also the idea of why in the world would the timber wolves wanted trae Jimmy Butler to the team that they just barely beat out for the postseason last year. And while that's still a valid question. If I were on, Minnesota's sports talk radio. I would be saying do not trade Jimmy Butler two the nuggets if you got to get rid of them get rid to the Eastern Conference. But again, how long? Can put up with questions like that. How long can Scott late in deal with being yelled at at practice by Jimmy Butler? How long can Karl Anthony towns Andrew Wiggins and Jimmy Butler awkwardly tiptoe around each other in the timber wolves locker room? I would say

"It says altitude tv on the call but that sure doesn't sound like chris marlow no either way nuggets beat the nets last night in for the first time this season they have won backtoback game holy cow get your nba finals tickets now by logging onto it was a good way no it was a good win for the nuggets because in years past they would they if they started off the way that they started off the road trip in charlotte they would have cratered and we will retire about all they went one in three they're able to salvage that last game now they have a chance to go three and one if they beat the next tonight yeah and the next by the way if he just joining us don't have carmelo anthony anymore so it's an interesting game tonight but it was big for the nuggets nicole yokich getting that third category up to get those tripledoubles but still you take eight in fourteen at your bob murray added shot over 35 percent all year he she fifty seven percent last night so it was a is a good win for the nuggets it's not beating the warriors but it's progress you know what if there was a category for complaining to the refs or really sad faces after you get called for a foul yokich would have a triple double every night i i and who hated body like i just can't stand his body were interviewing him for a job yeah you wouldn't even listened to what he has to say because his body language is so tear exactly i'd be like man you're like a sevenfooter be like seven feet though and i think the thing for me is i wouldn't say it's a good when i would say it was a win and it was a win.

"Offense so to me i'm willing naveh conversation about everybody on the nuggets roster except nicole yokich now my other as if i were running these negotiations which i wanna ask ataman our number three who's making these negotiations because when the nuggets were discussing getting kevin love wasn't tim connolly our tourist karnisovas who are making that call it wasn't even josh kroenke eu stan so i am also interested to see a fate of the franchise type of move this could be who is ultimately going to make those calls who's going to be engaging in discussions 'cause i doubt that the cavaliers new gm is going to be the one making this calls i know he's been with the organization buddies new to being a general manager i think his dan gilbert so is dan gilbert gonna talk to tim connolly or even josh kroenke now i think i think the discussions go on withstand but we'll asked adam who has more insight into that them potentially we do but if i am at the table and i say you may not have nicole yokich under any circumstances well under any circumstances if that lebron guys willing to a wave is no trade causing come over with tyree then maybe bite assuming that doesn't happen who and they say okay we won't ask for nicole yokich were still interested may in making a deal with you but nicole yokich word we won't ask for to me.

"The nba rebounding then right yeah and you're nicole yokich phenomenal rebounder part of what i think if wife with people talk about his his defence of value is that he's actually you know he's good enough good with little he plays pretty good position grants any rebound veteran elite level he's pop rebounders uh so important combined millsaps the bility to kind of uh flavor guard anybody one through five he's really good at moving his feet he's a wife down defender and then you have yokich cleaning up the glass i think that the good combo i think their skills complement each other but on the glass all season long i really don't think it's it's it's not like millsap as an awful defender it's just not one of his drinks but the nuggets don't drink they've already got it covered in oil see don't need forwards in guards they have so many of him right now the roster again looks just so a so imbalance i'll we had our tourist karnisovas on the show yesterday on me he obviously was very ah koy about it if there's a move out there to make the team better you au gift that line from tim in our tourists enough in your estimation what needs to happen before we hit the started the season with this nuggets roster it's a really tough question and the honest i don't expect anything to happen i think major up kenneth free salary on somebody but i don't know if they're going to take back a a serviceable quay or in any type of trade so i think this what roster what the nuggets there's reason to believe that it's going to be okay they've got starting five that i think all fifth really nicely together uh where they're really thin is that small over to watch or hernan gomez will probably end up playing or off or at the power fourth next year but you're absolutely right there is some volatility there because there are five powerful rebound the rossner there's a ton of shooting guard leaked beazley's a young guy with the upside but i don't think he's going to even get on the court next year so there is.
