The Nuggets defeat the Dallas Mavericks 130-104 and move to 18-10 on the season…..Balanced game on both ends from Denver….The Nuggets took over for good in the third quarter…. – 11:15 PM
Harrison Wind @HarrisonWind
Nikola Jokic finishes with only 8 points, but the Nuggets put up 130 to blow out the Mavs. Another great game for #ProjectDynasty off Denver’s bench. – 11:15 PM

Big guys gettin’ active 👏 pic.twitter.com/89FZqcX0Pe11:08 PM
Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
The Nuggets are up 32 with 5 minutes to go here.
Been great to see a Zeke Nnaji bounce back game. Had played in just 2 of the last 8 games. Has 14-3-2-1-1 and a +16 currently. – 11:06 PM

Count the basket!
15 for Reggie pic.twitter.com/oU3ICOopqC10:59 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
Doncic presumably out for good. – 10:59 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
How long is Jason Kidd going to keep Luka in this game? The Mavs aint coming back from down 27 – 10:53 PM
Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
Great bounce back game from Reggie Jackson tonight. He has been dialed on pick and roll and iso. – 10:53 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
38-11-8 for Doncic. Will he be in the game long enough to post his second straight 40-point triple-double? – 10:52 PM
Harrison Wind @HarrisonWind
Reggie Jackson continues to be the best story of this Nuggets season. I love watching him hoop. – 10:52 PM
Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
It has not felt like the Nuggets are dominating, but they’re winning 98-80 heading into the 4th, and Luka’s played 33 minutes after playing the entire 3rd quarter.
Luka is starting the 4th. – 10:46 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
The Nuggets lead the Mavericks 98-80 at the end of three quarters……Luka was the only thing keeping this game relatively close….once he cooled off, the separation happened in earnest – 10:45 PM
Denver Nuggets @nuggets
10 points off the bench for Reggie 👓 pic.twitter.com/fjFYXNgmNQ10:43 PM

Peyton Watson finding his corner 3 👁 – 10:41 PM
Adam Mares @Adam_Mares
Peyton Watson has now made a 3 in each of the last 3 games after not making one in his previous 20 games. – 10:41 PM
Denver Nuggets @nuggets
20+ points for these guys 🪣
AG: 21 PTS / 5 REB / 5 AST
Jamal: 22 PTS / 4 REB / 2 AST pic.twitter.com/JFkXFNTTI510:38 PM
Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
That is a brutal grenade from Christian Braun. – 10:34 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
The Nuggets are threatening to put this away by the end of the third quarter….They are up 88-74 over Dallas – 10:33 PM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Josh Giddey had a bounce back game tonight after a career-low minutes vs the Nuggets.
Giddey had 16 points, 12 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 steal and only 1 turnover on 6-12 shooting. – 10:31 PM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
Chet Holmgren has 15 blocks in his last two games.
Only four other rookies have 15 blocks all season: Victor Wembanyama, Bilal Coulibaly, Dereck Lively and Ausar Thompson. – 10:30 PM
Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
Jamal Murray has 10 points in the first six minutes of the third quarter. He’s 4/4 from 3 tonight. – 10:29 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
So, as it turns out, Dennis Lindsey was right about Dante Exum after all – 10:23 PM
Detroit Pistons PR @Pistons_PR
Cade Cunningham scored a career-high 43 points (16-24 FG, 3-5 3FG, 8-9 FT) tonight against Atlanta with five rebounds, seven assists, three steals and one block.
He joins Isiah Thomas (12/13/83 vs. DEN) as the only players in franchise history to record such minimums in a game. pic.twitter.com/jJYimbSm1K10:23 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
The shame of it for Dallas is that it trails by 12 and Jokic only has 6 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists. – 10:23 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
Since missing his first 3 shots and committing two turnovers in the game’s opening 3:20, Luka Doncic has has made 13 of 16 shots and committed zero turnovers. – 10:12 PM
Chuck Cooperstein @coopmavs
Getting hit 3x in the face w/o a call has Luka steamed so much that he has BTB games w a 22 pt qtr as part of a 28 pt half, but Mavs trail DEN 68-59. 15th 20 pt half of the season. It’s not Jokic or Murray hurting DAL, it’s Gordon with 16 to lead DEN. 2nd half soon @971TheFreak – 10:09 PM
Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
Halftime Rotations for the Nuggets as they lead the Mavs 68-59.
AG with 16-4-4
Joker with 6-5-3-2, just hasn’t been needed to score a ton
Jamal with 12 points and 2 assists. Threes have been good. pic.twitter.com/tvL3ZIcSK310:08 PM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Thunder just take care of business against the lottery teams.
Heard some talk the Grizz may be a trap game coming off the Nuggets win and both LA teams coming up.
But OKC’s mentality of not looking past any opponent has resulted in blow out wins vs the sub .500 teams. – 10:06 PM
Harrison Wind @HarrisonWind
Monster half from Aaron Gordon: 16 points, he even hit a 3-pointer and went 5-6 from the free-throw line, 4 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 steal. Doing work inside against the undersized Mavs. – 10:04 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
All things considered, Dallas is extremely fortunate to be down only 68-59.
In case you haven’t noticed, Dallas also is extremely fortunate to have Luka Doncic: 28 points, 6 assists, 5 rebounds. – 10:04 PM
Michael C. Wright @mikecwright
Luka was heating up. Saved by the bell. – 10:04 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
The Nuggets lead the Mavericks 68-59 at halftime….Gordon with 16 and Murray with 12 for Denver….Luka Doncic with 28 for Dallas….went nuclear in the second quarter – 10:04 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
Blink once, Doncic has 10 points. Blink twice, he has 25-6-5. – 10:02 PM
Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
Luka finally got a three to go over MPJ, just like he’s done to everyone else tonight.
He has 25 points and 6 assists – 10:02 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Oh my word, Luka – 10:01 PM
Dallas Mavericks PR @MavsPR
With his 1,543rd career triple at the 3:47 mark of the second quarter in Denver, Tim Hardaway Jr. has passed his father, Tim Hardaway Sr. (1,542), on the NBA’s all-time 3FGM list. The Hardaways are the first father/son duo in Mavs history, ranking 44th and 45th all-time in 3FGM. pic.twitter.com/Dtsipix0dD9:59 PM
Harrison Wind @HarrisonWind
The Nuggets’ second unit has played fine this season as long as Denver has had a fully healthy roster (pretty much whenever Jamal Murray’s been in the lineup). That’s the case again tonight. – 9:51 PM
Dallas Mavericks @dallasmavs
LD makin’ it rain – 9:48 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Remember when I said I hadn’t seen Luka play well against Denver? He’s now on a heater – 9:48 PM
Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
Uh…Luka Doncic is cooking something special here. – 9:47 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Zeke Nnaji dunks on Luka and stares at him. Luka comes right down. forces the switch for Nnaji to guard him, scores on him…..good stuff both ways – 9:46 PM
Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
So far, IMO, the Nuggets are winning this game because they are healthier, not because they’ve played any better.
Denver also has just one turnover so far, so that helps. They’re not beating themselves here. – 9:44 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
End of the first quarter in Denver. The Nuggets lead the Mavericks 28-20….as an aside….I’ve never seen Luka Doncic play well against the Nuggets – 9:36 PM
Denver Nuggets @nuggets
Nuggets legend in the building tonight!
Fat Lever court side supporting the squad 🤝 pic.twitter.com/hI90LsKVYa9:32 PM
Gordon Gross @GMoneyNuggs
At some point in this game the Nuggets have to make these kinds of open shots, right? The ball movement is good, they’re taking the right shots… Just clanking a few too many. Keep up the good process and hard cuts and the open shooters will come through. – 9:31 PM
Harrison Wind @HarrisonWind
I believe this is the first time Nikola Jokic and Markieff Morris have played against one another since the November 8, 2021 Nuggets/Heat altercation. – 9:30 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
Earlier than usual rest for Doncic, who, remember, missed shootaround this morning because he wasn’t feeling well. – 9:28 PM
Adam Mares @Adam_Mares
Markieff Morris is in at center, guarding Nikola Jokic. – 9:28 PM
Gordon Gross @GMoneyNuggs
Jokic knows AG is there to dunk but doesn’t know if he’s jumped as Nikola is getting the pass from Murray. Sees AG before getting the pass, is prepared for a quick pass but transitions to a soft lob for the easy dunk because Gordon is still standing. Love watching Nikola work. – 9:25 PM
Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
The Nuggets starters just haven’t been as crisp as they can be. – 9:25 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
The Nuggets get out to a 15-9 lead here in Denver over the Mavericks….Aaron Gordon with five early points to lead the Nuggets……. – 9:22 PM
Vinny Benedetto @VBenedetto
Fat Lever receives a nice ovation as he’s welcomed back to Denver during a timeout.
Nuggets up 15-9 five minutes in. Joker with 4-3-2. Aaron Gorodn with five early points. – 9:22 PM
Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
Fat Lever is in the house, and the Nuggets just gave him a nice tribute. Some fans are giving a standing ovation.
Good stuff. – 9:21 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
Tough start for Doncic: 0-for-3, 2 turnovers, 1 points.
Nuggets 15, Mavs 9. – 9:20 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
Doncic was 42 of his last 44 before that free-throw miss. – 9:16 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
Doncic rubs his jaw and looks at his buddy Jokic as if to say, “Look what you did.” – 9:15 PM
Vinny Benedetto @VBenedetto
Dallas starts the game by doubling Nikola Jokic on the catch. Jokic gets off the ball, gets it back and hits a tough floater to open the scoring. – 9:12 PM
Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
Alright Nuggets fans, it’s time for Game 28, a Jokic vs Luka classic.
Let’s Basketball. – 9:11 PM
Harrison Wind @HarrisonWind
Nuggets starters vs. Mavs:
Jamal Murray
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope
Michael Porter Jr.
Aaron Gordon
Nikola Jokic – 9:02 PM
Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
The Mavericks are starting Dwight Powell tonight in place of the injured Dereck Lively II.
Last time, the Mavs had Grant Williams guard Jokic with Lively roaming over. I bet they go back to a more traditional look with Powell on him and Williams guarding Gordon. – 8:51 PM
Chuck Cooperstein @coopmavs
Mavs starters: Jones, Williams, Powell, Curry, Doncic
DEN starters: Porter, Gordon, Jokic, Caldwell-Pope, Murray
8:10 tip @971TheFreak – 8:42 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
Mavs starters: Jones, Williams, Powell, Curry, Doncic. – 8:42 PM

#MileHighBasketball pic.twitter.com/lofkfJOFej8:18 PM
Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
The story of tonight’s game comes down to how locked in Denver’s perimeter defense will be and how forceful Jokic wants to be in the paint against Dwight Powell.
In the IST game against the Mavs here earlier in the year, Joker went for 33-14-9 on 14/16.
Would be a good time for… – 7:47 PM

Doncic will play, as will Holmes, Kidd says. – 7:34 PM

Michael Malone shared that Kentavious Caldwell-Pope will be back tonight after missing two games in the concussion protocol.
The team has complete confidence in him, and he’s a stabilizer for everything they do.
Full Quote 👇 pic.twitter.com/GbBSMgAl677:33 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
Doncic had 9 turnovers here last time. Malone mentioned it. I’m sure Doncic hasn’t forgotten.
On the other hand, at least the court is normal, not the in-season tournament version like last time. – 7:28 PM
Vinny Benedetto @VBenedetto
Michael Malone says he expects Kentavious Caldwell-Pope to return tonight. – 7:24 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
Look for KCP on Doncic, a lot. pic.twitter.com/BDtCyXYhoA7:17 PM

KCP is available, Malone says. – 7:16 PM

Doncic is in the arena. No reason at this point to think he won’t play. – 7:07 PM

Mark Daigneault on SGA’s calm demeanor after his Nuggets game-winner: “I do think he’s definitely grown from a lot of experiences. He’s been in that situation a lot… He knew there was time (left) on the clock.”
Mentioned how he hit a similar shot last year vs the Bucks but lost – 6:45 PM

Luka Doncic is making 82.1% of his unassisted shots in the restricted area in the half court.
Better than even Giannis. Better than LeBron. Better than anyone. This is #1 in the NBA.
