How did the Denver Nuggets look in their first seeding game of the 2019-20 season?

The Denver Nuggets had an ugly loss to a talented Miami team today with a final score of 105-125. Denver was missing three starters in Jamal Murray, Will Barton and Gary Harris and their absence became more and more apparent as the game progressed.

Regardless of the outcome there were a and handful of bright spots and an equal number of issues.
