The Denver Nuggets are rolling now after a lull in November.

Ryan Blackburn and Swipa break down the Denver Nuggets perfect 3-0 road trip, focusing on Denver’s most recent win over the Charlotte Hornets and the Jamal Murray performance vs the Brooklyn Nets. Nikola Jokic and the Nuggets mostly took it easy in Charlotte, but they turned up at the right time and showed how they can reach a new level when they have to.

Then, Ryan and Swipa go over their Christmas Wish Lists for the Nuggets heading into a matchup against Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors on Christmas Day. What will the storylines be about after Denver’s Christmas matchup? Will Jamal Murray put himself back in All-Star consideration?

Finally, they preview the other four Christmas games, focusing on the Milwaukee Bucks, Philadelphia 76ers, and Los Angeles Lakers. Which matchups are fun and interesting? Which matchups are Ryan and Swipa watching most closely?
