ESPN Full Court Press: Boston Celtics, Holders of League’s Best Record, Host the Defending NBA Champion Denver Nuggets on Friday


ESPN’s commentators for Friday’s Denver Nuggets vs. Boston Celtics game discuss the matchup:

Mark Jones, play-by-play: “This is the game of the month and a potential NBA Finals preview. Denver has the best combination of chemistry and talent in the NBA. They fit like Louis V’s on your feet. That’s what Boston is still working towards – and they’re close to proving it – with the best record in the NBA and a top-three offense and defense. Don’t get it twisted, Jayson Tatum is ready to remind folks he should be part of the M.V.P. conversation.”

Doris Burke, analyst: “It is two premier players at the peak of their powers squaring off at TD Garden. Nikola Jokić is on fire and once again in the M.V.P. discussion. Jayson Tatum continues to grow and refine his game while Boston has clearly established itself as a championship contender.”

Katie George, reporter: “Boston has been extremely consistent and steady in the first half of the season.  Can the defending NBA Champions deliver Boston its first home loss of the season during their second game of a long, grueling five-game road trip? The Nuggets’ defense has to show up to do so.”
