(Photo by AAron Ontiveroz/The Denver Post) The Nuggets wrested control of Tuesday’s game faster than Nikola Jokic’s passes soar over unsuspecting opponents. What they discovered may have been a significant find ahead of next week’s trade deadline. Denver had a comfortable 93-84 margin over the Pelicans at the start of the fourth quarter, and it took just 37 seconds for that lead to balloon to 13, at which point New Orleans called a timeout. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope ignited the first fastbreak, which ended in a transition dunk from rookie Christian Braun. On the ensuing possession, Bruce Brown ripped the ball form Pelicans reserve guard Jose Alvarado and took off for another uncontested dunk. At that moment, the Nuggets found a recipe for potentially something sustainable. The lineup of Brown, Braun, Caldwell-Pope, Jeff Green and Aaron Gordon gave the Nuggets size, speed, athleticism and a formula to score points off the bench. “That lineup is really versatile defensively (because) you can switch everything,” Nuggets coach Michael Malone said after his team hung on, 122-113, improving their first-place record to 35-16. Neither Zeke Nnaji nor Bones Hyland, who’d both played in the first half, got off the bench for the final two quarters. On four consecutive occasions, the Nuggets scored while taking advantage of New Orleans’ compromised defense. After the two dunks, Brown stepped confidently into a 3-pointer once Alvarado gambled — and missed — on a steal attempt. Less than a minute later, the Nuggets corralled a defensive rebound, and again, Green converted on the break. For a unit that has struggled to consistently score, there was tangible evidence that it could be done as a result of their defense. The Nuggets scored 26 fastbreak points, underscoring their status as the fourth-ranked transition team in the NBA. Their offense, predicated on Jokic’s creativity, issued 33 assists. Their snipers — Jamal Murray, Michael Porter Jr., and Caldwell-Pope — combined for 13 of the team’s 16 3-pointers. The only glaring issue this season has been whether Denver’s second unit can extend, maintain or even hold leads. In the second quarter, a 7-2 Pelicans run against Denver’s second unit opened up a 42-33 lead. It informed Malone’s decision to shorten the bench in the second half. After the game, Malone was asked where he stood with Hyland, who’s been the subject of trade rumors ahead of the trade deadline. “I stand with Bones,” Malone said. “… I stand with everybody in that locker room.” DENVER, CO – JANUARY 31: Bones Hyland (3) of the Denver Nuggets sits on the bench during the fourth quarter of the Nuggets’ 122-113 win over the New Orleans Pelicans at Ball Arena in Denver on Tuesday, January 31, 2023. (Photo by AAron Ontiveroz/The Denver Post) On the national TV broadcast, TNT’s Chris Haynes reported that Hyland was open to a trade that would grant him more playing time. For most of the second half, Hyland sat at the far end of the team’s bench. As the Nuggets continue to assess Hyland’s trade value, it was incumbent on them to see what a lineup looked like without him. In Brown, they have a ball-handler, in Braun a versatile, athletic wing, and in Green, a veteran presence. On Tuesday it was Caldwell-Pope and Gordon who staggered with the second unit, but on most nights, that player will likely be Murray and another frontcourt player. Malone said he changed up the typical rotation pattern to accommodate Murray’s scorching start Tuesday night. The Nuggets have 31 games left in the regular season to settle on a bench unit that will be adequate for the postseason. They have just four more games until next week’s trade deadline to decide whether that bench unit even needs bolstering. At least for a night, they found evidence of something that worked.
