Kings vs. Nuggets Preview: Rise of the Cranberry Kings

The stuffing should be mostly gone, the turkey is just the dry, white bits in a container of meat sweat and whatever Tim’s favorite portion of the meal might be is entirely untouched in the back of the fridge, waiting to be throw out when your making room for your New Years Eve booze.

The Kings have come home and will waste no time getting back into the thick of things: they take on Nikola Jokic , the man who perfectly captures the way I look after my post-Thanksgiving gorging session.

It’s an early one today so grab that nooner beverage of choice, dish out a bowl of three days young pumpkin pie and like everything else that’s after Thanksgiving and before New Years: get ready for a lot of disappointment!

They’re 13-3 overall and doing it on the backs of the 2nd best defensive rating in the league while holding their opponents to the lowest output in the NBA.

But, they’re rocking it on the defensive end which is mighty odd considering their best player is only ever spoken about for his passing and scoring acumen.

Their only losses come to the Mavericks , Pelicans and Hawks , three teams with dynamic facilitators running their offenses.
