This week’s “Delivering the D” comes to you via Nuggets’ center Mason Plumlee, who soared to reject this Nene layup attempt for one of his three blocks in the Nuggets’ Saturday night loss to the Rockets. Plumlee is averaging just over a block per game since he arrived in Denver and has been a driving force that has helped the Nuggets to the 19th-best defense in the league since the All-Star break, a solid improvement from their league-worst defense over the first half of the season.
