Those mid-range looks will be there for Barton all night unlesss the Rockets shift. – 5:23 PM
TJ McBride @TJMcBrideNBA
Whenever Jokic screens, Houston is dropping to keep Denver out of the paint, but it is giving Barton and Morris a bunch of good mid-range looks. Because of that, getting Jokic screening for Porter might be a good look to help get MPJ going. – 5:20 PM
Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
Alright, Nuggets winning 16-8 because they are better and the defense is excellent. Will Barton has been great on both ends. – 5:20 PM
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
Rockets with four missed shots (one that hit the rim) and three turnovers on their first six possessions. – 5:15 PM
Vinny Benedetto @VBenedetto
Nuggets get a stop and a Will Barton III 3-pointer on the first two possessions vs. a 1-7 Rockets squad. – 5:12 PM
TJ McBride @TJMcBrideNBA
The Nuggets have…a stegosaurus?…taking the first shot of the game tonight because why not. PM

Warmups are too clean 🥵 PM

Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Andre Iguodala is out for the Warriors tomorrow, sitting on front side of back-to-back against the Rockets. Warriors play the Hawks on Monday. – 5:06 PM
Katy Winge @katywinge
Keys for TODAYS game. TODAY not tonight (I’ve already messed this up 3 times)
Bonus key – turn them over. Houston turns the ball over the most in the NBA. Get easy buckets.
🔑 Make some 3s
🔑 Transition defense
🔑 Wall off the paint. Contain 1v1. PM

Jalen really out here levitating 🤯 PM

Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
The Houston Rockets were just introduced at Ball Arena for warmups, and I kid you not, no one said a word. No boos, nada. – 4:48 PM
TJ McBride @TJMcBrideNBA
Nuggets sticking with the same starting five as expected.
Monte Morris
Will Barton III
Michael Porter Jr.
Aaron Gordon
Nikola Jokic
The Rockets will start:
Jalen Green
Kevin Porter Jr.
Jae’Sean Tate
Christian Wood
Daniel Theis – 4:42 PM
TJ McBride @TJMcBrideNBA
Aaron Gordon being able to roam the baseline and still defend Christian Wood is the matchup ill be watching for tonight. With Denver so focused on protecting the paint, Gordon’s defensive contributions will be very important despite the amount of space he will have to cover. – 4:41 PM
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
Rockets starters: Tate, Wood, Theis, Green, K. Porter Jr.
Nuggets: M. Porter Jr., Gordon, Jokic, Barton, Morris. – 4:37 PM
Cayleigh Griffin @cayleighgriffin
Daniel Theis back in the starting lineup here in Denver, with Wood, Tate, KPJ, and Green. – 4:35 PM
Adam Spolane @AdamSpolane
Rockets make it official, Daniel Theis will start today – 4:33 PM
TJ McBride @TJMcBrideNBA
Jamal Murray, as usual, is out getting shots up. The Nuggets have no intention of setting a timeline on his return after the ACL tear, but it’s good to see him getting shots up as often as he is. PM

TJ McBride @TJMcBrideNBA
I love this story Malone shared about Bones Hyland asking Malone for help organizing the offense and the way Denver approaches coaching their younger players.
“You have to teach the why. You can’t just throw things out there as if they got it,” Malone said. PM

Got a chance to try the #Nuggets new city edition uniform todayyy. Love it. City edition gear will be on sale at @AltitudeAuth starting Nov. 15 PM

TJ McBride @TJMcBrideNBA
Malone said that everything starts in transition tonight if they want to limit the Rockets. Houston takes the most shots within five feet of the rim and many of those looks are in transition. – 3:53 PM
Adam Spolane @AdamSpolane
In all honesty, the less Sengun has to defend Jokic the more he’ll get to play, so not starting him means he’ll play more – 3:49 PM
Adam Spolane @AdamSpolane
Rockets aren’t planning on resting anyone in the 2nd game of their first back-to-back tomorrow – 3:37 PM

Rockets center Daniel Theis expected to play on Saturday in Denver. Danuel House Jr. could be back tomorrow. – 3:35 PM
Vinny Benedetto @VBenedetto
Sounds like Daniel Theis will play for Houston this afternoon, Danuel House not quite ready yet, per Rockets coach Stephen Silas. – 3:35 PM
Cayleigh Griffin @cayleighgriffin
Coach Silas hopes Danuel House Jr. will be available tomorrow. He needs to get a few more workouts in, and they’ll see, but trending in the right direction. – 3:34 PM
Adam Spolane @AdamSpolane
Stephen Silas says he believes Danuel House will return tomorrow – 3:34 PM
Adam Spolane @AdamSpolane
Stephen Silas says Daniel Theis will warm up and he thinks he will play today. The Rockets did not have a shoot around today – 3:33 PM
Cayleigh Griffin @cayleighgriffin
Coach Silas expects Daniel Theis will be back today. He’s warming up now, and they’ll see. – 3:33 PM

Stephen Silas believes Daniel Theis will play tonight. Still not 100% sure. – 3:33 PM

Little news: Before I was set to leave Memphis, I tested positive for COVID. I’m fully vaccinated, wear a mask, everything. Still got it. All things considered, I’m doing fine. Nasty head cold, but obviously could be worse. Won’t be on #Nuggets coverage while I’m stuck here … – 2:43 PM

Been to so many PJ shows since the Roskilde tragedy where it’s obvious Ed is worried about folks in the crowd. Eerie how similar the numbers were in Houston last night. Can’t imagine how horrific it was (and will continue to be) for everyone involved. – 11:42 AM
