Podcast: Nuggets last minute issues and a call to arms

The Denver Nuggets have gone through a rough stretch of two games against the Houston Rockets.

Things are looking gloomy right? In today’s CSG Podcast, Nate Timmons and myself go over the Nuggets issues ... in particular their issues with closing games in the last minute, Nikola Jokic’s defensive issues, and Jameer Nelson’s hero ball.

Game thread: Rockets vs. Nuggets

As coincidental as it is for a team named the Nuggets to be associated with possibly the biggest pot tourism city in the country, the name actually comes from the 19th-century gold rush in the state of Colorado and the gold nuggets that were panned from local rivers, streams and creeks. The team was actually originally named the Larks, and then were known as the Rockets in the ABA until 1974, when they were forced to...
