For years, the Phoenix Suns and Golden State Warriors' method of defense was to let the other team score as fast as possible so the offense could get the ball back.
Denver is right at the bottom of the league, giving up 101 points per game. Not coincidentally, it has one of the most prolific offenses in many different ways. The Nuggets lead the league in dunks, shoot threes at a high rate and are third in the league in free throw attempts.
The one thing they are adept at doing on defense is forcing turnovers at an astounding rate. They force the second-most in the league—at 16 a night—which ignites their fast breaks which usually end with something like this.
When this team gets on fast breaks, it is must-see entertainment. The Nuggets are top five in the league in steals and blocks despite the amount of points they give up, which further contributes to their massive dunks in transition.
An anomaly at its finest, the Nuggets truly have mastered the art of the high-octane offense.
