Although the Nuggets have gotten off to a 1-3 start, there is no need for them to be concerned. Things should naturally turn around for a team with as much depth as Denver, who just made a Western Conference Finals appearance.
Michael Porter Jr. has proven he is capable of being a star in this league at some point with his ability to score from any level. Nikola Jokic has continued his excellence, as we all expected. However, Jamal Murray hasn’t been able to get things going offensively, especially in comparison to how he played in the Orlando bubble.
