The Denver Nuggets dropped another preseason game to the Oklahoma City Thunder after being dominated for the vast majority of the game.

This was ultimately disappointing as the Denver Nuggets dropped their fourth preseason game and one last change to go .500 on Friday.

Thunder 32 27 23 15 97
Nuggets 28 13 21 25 87

As you can see, the Denver Nuggets suffered after entering halftime down 18, and they had a dagger in their side before the second half even started.

The Jurkic lineup struggle to contain Steven Adams, and they ultimately proved why coach Malone may choose to alter the lineup. The Nuggets were just outplayed tonight, and this has been the only preseason game that has brought to light so many questions.

The Nuggets were outdone at their own game, which is rebounding. They currently lead every team in rebounds per game this preseason which is attested to their starting Jurkic lineup. They were out-rebounded just a slim 50-49.

Denve’s real struggle was just shooting in general. They shot 34.8% from the field which is just awful, and they shot 4-25 from behind the arc which is a dismal 16%. Well, with all that behind us now, let’s take a look at some of our tweets tonight.

The Denver Nuggets have a solid lineup, and they will look to change this horrible attempt on Friday as they play Dallas. This is their last preseason game before their season opener against the New Orleans Pelicans.

Just a couple more days Nuggets fans; just a couple more days till the real NBA is back!
