Nuggets collapse in Game 7, Michael Malone blows up and what’s next for Denver by Nuggets Ink

In the latest edition of the Nuggets Ink podcast, beat writer Bennett Durando and sports editor Matt Schubert reproach after the Minnesota Timberwolves eliminated Denver in a stunning Game 7 comeback. Among the topics discussed:

  • Where did things go wrong for the Nuggets in the second half of Game 7? What could coach Michael Malone have done differently to stem the tide as Minnesota rallied from 20 points down to advance?
  • How much of the blame for what happened Sunday should be heaped upon the shoulders of superstars Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray? What about the supporting players around them, in particular to cold-shooting Michael Porter Jr.?
  • What part of this result can be pinned on management? Did general manager Calvin Booth not give his head coach enough parts to successfully defend the title? What must be done to avoid this next season?
  • Lastly, Bennett talks about the chain of events that led to Michael Malone blowing up at him in the postgame press conference.
