A Nuggets-Lakers rematch and the path to back-to-back NBA championships in Denver by Nuggets Ink

In the latest edition of the Nuggets Ink podcast, beat writer Bennett Durando and sports editor Matt Schubert reconvene after the Los Angeles Lakers beat New Orleans in the play-in round to set up another playoff series with Denver. Among the topics discussed:

  • The Lakers held on to beat Zion Williamson and the New Orleans Pelicans, setting up a third playoff series in five seasons.  With the series tied 1-1, can the Nuggets ride their eight-game win streak against the Purple and Gold to the second round?
  • With the No. 1 seed on the line and almost in the bag, the Nuggets blew a 23-point lead to the Spurs en route to ending the season at No. 2. Does the seeding matter in a stacked Western Conference?
  • Victor Wembanyama is here and it’s official. Has his second-half emergence moved Jokic’s projected titles line?
  • Will Bennett reveal his NBA awards ballot? Or will it remain shrouded in mystery?
  • Bennett and Matt hand out Nuggets team awards for the 2023-24 season.
