Aaron Gordon hits a new level, Vlatko Cancar cracks the rotation and Jamal Murray’s big night – The Denver Post


In the latest edition of the Nuggets Ink podcast, beat writer Mike Singer and deputy sports editor Matt Schubert are joined by NBA insider Burton Chawla to talk about Aaron Gordon’s terrific start to the season. Among the topics discussed:

    • Aaron Gordon is playing some of the best basketball of his career, with near career highs across the board. What’s changed for Gordon this season? What’s he done to make him a more productive player? And what’s his ceiling?
    • Jamal Murray went for 31 points on 11-of-17 shooting in Monday night’s win over the Houston Rockets, playing perhaps his best offensive game since returning from ACL surgery. What was the most impressive thing about the performance? How soon will this become a regular thing again?
    • With injuries and illnesses piling up, Vlatko Cancar has suddenly cracked the rotation for the Nuggets and is thriving. Could this be a regular thing for the Nuggets and Cancar?
    • We also dig into a number of other rotation developments: Davon Reed taking Christian Braun’s minutes, Zeke Nnaji seeing the floor with regularity and DeAndre Jordan popping in and out of the lineup.
