Chauncey Billups sat down with Nuggets’ stars Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray to discuss their meteoric rise up the Western Conference this season. For a team so young, they have played well together and shown the poise of an older, much more mature group.
“I think we are growing together, so that’s kind of a cool thing,” Jokic said. “We’re learning and every game is a learning experience for us.”
The Truth believes the Nuggets are for real and expects them to make some waves in the playoffs this summer despite their youth. Paul said that he can see this team making it to the Western Conference Finals because he thinks the Nuggets play some of the most mature basketball in the league.
“Listen, I said this a couple of weeks ago on ESPN that I think the Denver Nuggets will be in the Western Conference Finals,” Pierce said. “They’re a great defensive team, they’re a great rebounding team and they’ve got no egos.”
