Recap: The Nuggets get a much needed win at home

  Recap: The Nuggets get a much needed win at home The Nuggets beat the kings at home to snap a 2 game losing streakWill Barton opens the game for the Nuggets with a 3, today is also Thrill’s 31st birthday. JaMychal Green and Monte Morris were both put into the starters tonight. After Monte played one game off the bench it seems that the coaching staff wants him to be the starter. Aaron Gordon was attacking the rim and he was all over the court, he had 2 dunks in the first quarter. The Nuggets offense was flowing early, the ball was moving everywhere and even Jokic was dunking.

Mike Malone and DeMarcus Cousins are together again.

Cousins played his best basketball in Sacramento under Malone, but the Kings inexplicably fired Malone and eventually moved on from Cousins. Malone eventually landed on his feet in Denver, where he helped develop Nikola Jokic and built a team that could be a contender if it could just stay healthy.

As expected, he’s pairing up again with Cousins, at least for the next 10 days.

Cousins played solidly for the Bucks this season off the bench, averaging 9.1 points and 5.8 rebounds a game for a team in need of quality big man play with Brook Lopez out due to back surgery. Milwaukee only waived Cousins because his contract was about to be fully guaranteed and they wanted to save money.

With JaMychal Green out due to health and safety protocols, there are minutes for Cousins in Denver behind Nikola Jokick (who continues to play at an MVP level). The Nuggets run a lot of pick-and-roll with their second unit and Cousins scored efficiently as a roll man with the Bucks. Add in newly-acquired Bryn Forbes as a floor spacer and the Nuggets second unit could get a boost.
