The Denver Nuggets may have just secured the top seed in the Western Conference following a convincing win over the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday night. The Nuggets dominated the game from start to finish, with Nikola Jokic leading the way with 24 points, 15 rebounds, and five assists.
The win puts the Nuggets at 43-16 for the season, which gives them a two-game lead over the second-placed Utah Jazz. With just 13 games remaining in the regular season, it would take a significant collapse for the Nuggets to lose their hold on the top spot in the Western Conference.
The victory over the Grizzlies was particularly impressive, as Memphis has been one of the hottest teams in the league in recent weeks. However, the Nuggets’ dominant performance showcased their depth and versatility, as they received contributions from a variety of players, including Michael Porter Jr. and Jamal Murray.
The win not only puts the Nuggets in prime position for the playoffs, but it also serves as a reminder of their potential to make a deep postseason run. With Jokic leading the way and a strong supporting cast around him, the Nuggets will be a tough team to beat in the Western Conference playoffs.
As the regular season winds down, the Nuggets will look to maintain their momentum and continue to build chemistry as they prepare for what could be a long postseason run. Fans will be eagerly anticipating their next game as they look to keep their winning streak alive and cement their position as the top team in the Western Conference.
