Locked On Suns Wednesday: Suns offensive mastery plus how Nikola Jokic can bounce back with Michael Pina of Sports Illustrated

Breaking down the early stages of Round 2 between the Suns and Nuggets.

Michael Pina of Sports Illustrated joins the show to break down Game 1 of the Suns-Nuggets series and get you ready for Game 2. We discuss how Deandre Ayton was able to win the center matchup, why the Suns generated so many open threes, and how Denver can bounce back. That could mean a lot more Aaron Gordon both in the post and in a two-man game with Nikola Jokic, as well as likely a better night from the Nuggets’ bench. We also talk about how demoralizing Jokic can be, why the Nuggets are unlikely to start Monte Morris, and how Denver can improve its defense.
