Aaron Gordon has a very positive attitude towards the Nuggets after his first game with the team (0:20)

It only took Nikola Jokic a few minutes to find Aaron Gordon for his first dunk as a Denver Nugget

On his Denver debut, Gordon hit 6 of 9 shots and scored 13 points to help the Nuggets crush the Atlanta Hawks 126-102 at Ball Arena

After Denver led the Hawks by up to 33 points in a dominant team performance within the color, Gordon saw unlimited potential for the Nuggets

“I don’t see any limits for this team,” said Gordon “It looks like we have all the parts we need We have the depth It’s like we’re offensive and defensive in many different places

With a new starting line-up with Gordon alongside Jokic, Jamal Murray and Michael Porter Jr and Will Barton, the Nuggets (28-18), dominated Atlanta inside, outperforming the Hawks 50-32 in color, and outperforming them 49-31

With Jokic, Murray, Porter Jr and Gordon on the floor, the nuggets scored 55 points, up 17 in 20 minutes, according to ESPN Stats & Information Research

Gordon took a pass from Jokic and curled up from a Jokic screen to get a 17-foot pull-up sweater for his first basket as a nugget at 9:25 in the first quarter

“It didn’t look like it was his first day with us,” said JaMychal Green, who scored 20 points from the bench

Less than a minute later, Jokic hit a cutting Gordon in the paint to make a two-handed dunk.Three of Jokic’s eight assists went to Gordon, who dived twice from the Jokic passes

The nuggets, who wanted to move up the Western Conference rankings and make it back to the West Finals, swapped Gary Harris and RJ Hampton for Gordon in Orlando and bought JaVale McGee, who was not playing, from Cleveland

The Nuggets got a glimpse of Gordon’s versatility when the striker turned on defense and held possession in front of Atlanta’s Trae Young

“The main and the best thing that he did is that he accepted the role,” said Jokic. “He knows why he came here, he knows what he can do and he knows how him can help and he does the defense or insult, it doesn’t matter, he accepts and accepts

“I think he kind of saw us playing and he wasn’t trying to do too much. He saw the ball will find him if he is open. Really good debut for him”

And Gordon can see many more dunks playing alongside one of the game’s best passers-by in Jokic

“I’m starting to see the slip-ups,” said Gordon, who played for 20 minutes, “His outlet passing is amazing I haven’t seen such good outlet passers so I’m looking forward to lots of run-outs”
