“As usual, Nikola Jokic saw what others couldn’t see just yet.
It was Jokic who said recently that the Denver Nuggets could have the best defense in the NBA. It was easy to be skeptical following a season where the Nuggets had the 23rd ranked defensive rating in the league.
“You all laugh, but look at us now,” Jokic said ahead of Tuesday’s game against Sacramento.
The Nuggets (3-0) have found a different formula to win early this season. Rather than raining 3-pointers and burning the nets dry on offense, they’ve actually made good on Jokic’s proclamation.
Entering Tuesday night’s play, the Nuggets’ defensive rating (92.9 points allowed per 100 possessions) was the best in the league and was significantly better than Boston’s (97.3), and that includes Sunday’s thrilling win over Golden State. Conversely, they’re averaging fewer 3-pointers made than any team in the league.
“We won the games by defense, it’s kind of different,” Jokic said.
It’s different, and it’s also early."
