What they did get though was a young shooting guard by the name of Victor Oladipo. A guard brimming with potential with fans just waiting for him to break out. Well, it seems as if Oladipo has finally found a home with the Indiana Pacers.

Oladipo is currently on a hot streak as he has propelled the Pacers to  two key wins. However, Gary Harris has been silently efficient for the Nuggets this year. Outside of the Nuggets fan base, not many know of how consistent Gary Harris has been in the past few years for the Denver organization.

Harris is the Nuggets’ best perimeter defender, so he must be ready to flex his defensive prowess against Victor. That is where has a huge advantage over him whereas Oladipo should not be able to contain Harris as effectively on the other end of the floor. If a shoot out ensues between these two, then things will get very interesting.

The Nuggets will have to find a way to get other players involved in order to compensate for the production of Victor Oladipo. Harris cannot do it all without Jokic and Millsap. But, he will have to shoulder a heavy load in this particular match up. Oladipo is currently riding high right now, but Harris has the necessary skill set to bring him back down to earth.
