Nuggets will run an inverse pick and roll with Jokic handling and Murray picking. It is one of the best in the NBA averaging 1.3 points per pick and roll
Jazz offense struggling without a point guard right now.

JAzz 64 Nuggets 51 with 6:39 left in the 3rd
Here is the key to the game. Nuggets have the 3rd highest catch and shoot 3 pt rate in NBA and make 37% catch and shoot 3s. Make just 30% off the bounce. Jazz not doubling Jokic to prevent C/S 3. Nuggets are 3 of 15 from 3 all C/S

Jazz 84 Nuggets 77 with 9:18 left in the 4th quarter
Denver coming downhill at the Jazz on high pick and roll time and time again because Jazz aren’t leaving the shooters. Denver aggressively attacking rim.
Fatigue becomes a huge part of this game.

Jazz 111 Nuggets 104 Final Score
The Jazz exploit the Nuggets weaknesses. Take 13 corner 3s and eliminate the Nuggets 3 point game off Jokic action. Jokic only makes 1 assist for a 3 point shot tonight

A different times the Boston Celtics were in the midst of trade rumors involving Jimmy Butler, Paul George, Kawhi Leonard and Anthony Davis. Non of the deals got done and it left Ainge with a reputation of not wanting to do deals unless he won dramatically, In retrospect is that true?

The common threads of Ainge’s career are a great read of the moment, a variety in the types of players he acquires, added value that matters, perfect recognition of his talent, fleecing of other teams and he doesn’t always hit on this draft picks but he doesn’t miss.
