It may have taken a wake-up call vs the Utah Jazz, but the Denver Nuggets just played their best game in a while.

In the latest episode of the Pickaxe and Roll Podcast, Ryan Blackburn reacts to Denver Nuggets win over the New Orleans Pelicans on Friday night as Nikola Jokic, Jamal Murray, and Michael Porter Jr. all contribute great games to get the job done. It’s been a while since all three played great at the same time, but they found a way to play their best together.

Ryan shares his thoughts about the Jokic, Murray, and Porter trio and how they can continue shining individually while reaching their ceiling together and collecting wins along the way.

Aaron Gordon and Peyton Watson also each offered impressive contributions of their own helping limit Zion Williamson’s efficiency in the middle of the game. Ryan discusses Denver’s response to adversity and how impressive the Western Conference really is.
