The Denver Nuggets are off to their best start in NBA franchise history with a 21-9 record as they finished their homestand with with a win over the Mavericks for a perfect 4-0 run at the Pepsi Center. From the leadership of Nikola Jokic to the swagger of Jamal Murray, this Nuggets group is a fun team to watch. It also needs to be mentioned the Nuggets’ defense has been a contributing factor during this stretch run, it’s something that is much needed in a team looking to get back to the postseason for the first time since the 2012-13 season. Now it’s a waiting game for Denver as the Nuggets get a few well deserved days off before they jump back into action this Saturday against the Clippers in Los Angeles. There’s a saying that “winners get sprinkles on their donuts.” Well, if that is the case, then look for the Nuggets to be eating a lot of sprinkle-covered donuts this season as they are a team most don’t want to face in the Western Conference. — Jeff Bailey, The Denver Post NEW 💥 If you enjoy The Denver Post’s sports coverage, we have a new subscription offer for you! Try the first month for just 99¢ What’s on Tap?
