Nuggets vs Suns: 3 takeaways from Denver's 119-111 win in Phoenix

"Denver Nuggets win fourth game in a row, led by Jokic and Nurkic showdown, Durant's milestone, and shorthanded teams. #NBA"

The Denver Nuggets have extended their win streak to four games with a 119-111 victory over the Phoenix Suns. Here are three key takeaways from the game:

Firstly, the matchup between Nikola Jokic and Jusuf Nurkic was a highlight of the game. The former teammates went head-to-head for the first time since Nurkic's trade to Phoenix. The game saw a heated battle between the two centers, with Nurkic finishing with a season-high 31 points and Jokic posting 21 points, 16 assists, and 5 rebounds.

Secondly, Kevin Durant solidified his place among the greatest scorers in NBA history by moving into the top 10 on the career scoring list. Durant scored 22 points in the game, surpassing Moses Malone's career points to claim the 10th spot.

Lastly, both teams were missing key players, including Devin Booker and Jamal Murray, which made it difficult to draw any sweeping conclusions about their performance. Despite this, the Nuggets displayed unselfish basketball and strong shooting in the first half, while their defense struggled early in the game.

The Nuggets' win sets them up for their next game against the Sacramento Kings, and they will be looking to continue their winning streak.
