After one of the best opening weeks in Denver Nuggets history, the vibes around Denver are sky high.

In the newest episode of the Pickaxe and Roll podcast, Ryan Blackburn discusses the Denver Nuggets 110-102 win over the Utah Jazz to remain undefeated at 4-0. The Nuggets needed some extra energy on the second night of a back-to-back, but they pulled through behind strong performances from Nikola Jokić, Jamal Murray, and Aaron Gordon.

Ryan credits Jokić for his triple-double feat, tying LeBron James and Jason Kidd at fourth all-time with 107 triple-doubles in his NBA career. Ryan lauds the big man and discusses whether he can break the all-time record held by Russell Westbrook at 198.

Finally, he shares his perspective on why the Nuggets are so deadly compared to the rest of the league at the moment. With so much camaraderie and connectedness from the Nuggets rotation, other teams appear discombobulated by comparison, the natural counter to player movement running rampant through the NBA.
