The Denver Nuggets have missed the postseason by just one game the last two years, and haven’t made the playoffs since the 2012 season.

Fourth-year head coach Michael Malone faces pressure this year to take his team to the next level. The Nuggets—led by their star, big man Nikola Jokic, and a cast of young talented players —believe this is the year they finally break their playoff drought.

Nick Kosmider, who covers for the Nuggets for The Athletic, recently sat down with CPR for a season preview.
