What you need to know:

  • The Nuggets clearly continue to miss Jamal Murray -- out with a torn knee ligament -- and Jokic got little aid from his banged-up supporting cast.
  • Michael Porter, who hurt his back in game one, played 27 minutes and put up 11 points -- connecting on just three of 13 shots from the field.
  • Nuggets coach Michael Malone was offering no excuses when he called the game "embarrassing."
