2008-09 Game 59: Denver Nuggets 90 – Los Angeles Lakers 79

Box Score | Highlights Will you all forgive me?  As I am sure most of you know I said repeatedly that the Denver Nuggets had no chance to win this game.  Turns out they had a slight chance.  The only person I did see who said that the Nuggets would win this game was Nate […]

2008-09 Game 59: Denver Nuggets vs Los Angeles Lakers Game Thread

The Denver Nuggets face their current nemesis tonight as the Los Angeles Lakers roll into town.  With the best team in the west in town we needed to do something special. Instead of a regular preview I have sought out the thoughts of some of the best Lakers bloggers on the internet.  The Nuggets are […]

2008-09 Game 58: Denver Nuggets 110 – Atlanta Hawks 109

Box Score | Highlights I cannot decide if I should feel good about this win or not.  Honestly I do not want to feel good about it because of the way Denver played the first and fourth quarters.  The Nuggets certainly showed more activity on defense than they did against Boston, but there were still […]

2008-09 Game 58: Denver Nuggets vs Atlanta Hawks Game Thread

It is still February and the Denver Nuggets are playing the Atlanta Hawks at home.  Seems like just another monotonous regular season game?  Not so.  This is a must win game.  A loss tonight means the Nuggets will finish this three game home stand with a five game losing streak (yes, I have written off […]

Offday Offerings – Saving the Nuggets Some Time and Effort

The Nuggets seem to think that they have arrived and should be in the mix for the coveted veterans who are bought out and/or released by the terrible teams that they are playing for.  So far there are two players who might fit that mold, Sam Cassell and Mikki Moore although neither is worth much […]

2008-09 Game 57: Denver Nuggets 76 – Boston Celtics 114

Box Score | Highlights There were three simple differences between the Boston Celtics and Denver Nuggets tonight. One team played all out on both ends of the court for 48 minutes and the other did not. One team played aggressive trap and recover on ball screens and fought through on other screens while the other […]

2008-09 Game 57: Denver Nuggets vs Boston Celtics Game Thread

The Nuggets have won games this season without Carmelo Anthony, Chauncey Billups, J.R. Smith, Kenyon Martin and Chris Andersen.  They have yet to win a game this season without Nene.  In fact the Nuggets Pythagorean projected record without Nene is roughly 6-72.  Before you get overly panicked keep in mind that they have only played […]

2008-09 Game 56: Denver Nuggets 117 – Milwaukee Bucks 120

Box Score | Highlights I do not understand how this team’s collective mind works.  Coming off a loss to an inferior team and playing another inferior team they play brain dead basketball and drop a very winnable game.  How can a team play three straight games of great defense and then come out and play […]

2008-09 Game 56: Denver Nuggets at Milwaukee Bucks Game Thread

Only one more game before the Nuggets get to return home, but they may be playing without Carmelo Anthony and Kenyon Martin.   Martin’s back is still bothering him and Melo has been trying to work through a knee bruise suffered in Philadelphia. I bet Martin sits out and Melo plays, but that is pure guesswork […]

2008-09 Game 55: Denver Nuggets at Chicago Bulls Game Thread

I was all prepared to write about how the Nuggets have a chance to catch the Bulls with their pants down a little bit seeing as how they have five new players on their roster.  With that much turnover they are bound to require some time to adjust.  Well, upon further review, that may not […]

Offday Offerings – Was Standing Pat a Mistake?

I have yet to really put anything together about the trade deadline and that sucks because, well, it has passed.  The consensus amongst fans, commentators and the Nuggets front office was that Denver is playing well and should stand pat.  That is exactly what they did.  I only have two questions.  First, is this team […]

2008-09 Game 54: Denver Nuggets 101 – Philadelphia 76ers 89

Box Score | Highlights In their first game coming out of the All-Star break the Denver Nuggets failed to show up for the first seven minutes of the game, then once they decided to start playing they still appeared to sleep walk through the rest of the first half.  Lucky for them the way they […]

2008-09 Game 54: Denver Nuggets at Philadelphia 76ers Game Thread

Sorry for going dark over the All-Star break, I fully intended to post one or two videos highlighting the Nuggets’ defense against the Magic and Heat and throwing at least something up about All-Star Weekend, but I found myself crawling around in a large warehouse in Liberty, MO for many hours between Thursday and Tuesday.  […]

2008-09 Game 53: Denver Nuggets at Orlando Magic Game Thread

The big story heading into tonight’s game is how the Denver Nuggets have not won in Orlando since I was a senior in high school.  By the way, I am old. March 10, 1992 was the last time the Nuggets left the floor in Orlando victorious.  It took what was probably a career night from Mark […]
