2008-09 Game 70: Denver Nuggets 116 – Washington Wizards 105

Box Score | Highlights Apparently the Denver Nuggets did not learn much from their battle against the Grizzlies.  Despite cruising to a relatively easy 116-105 win against the Washington Wizards the Nuggets played incredibly soft defense in the first quarter and allowed the Wizards to get off to a very good start. Antawn Jamison shredded […]

2008-09 Game 70: Denver Nuggets vs Washington Wizards Game Thread

The Washington Wizards return to the Pepsi Center missing four players who would be starters under normal circumstances.  Gilbert Arenas, DeShawn Stevenson, Brendan Haywood are all out and Caron Bulter is unlikely to play due to an inflamed hamstring.  The last time the Wizards were on the court was in Los Angeles and the Wiz […]

Denver Nuggets Pick and Roll Defense Against the New Jersey Nets

I mentioned in my game recap of the Denver Nuggets 121-96 victory over the New Jersey Nets that Denver played very strong pick and roll defense.  I purposely left the details out because I was planning on putting together some video evidence so here you go.  Take note of how the Nuggets defended as a […]

Offday Offerings – Kenyon Back to Normal?

Is the back back to normal for Kenyon Martin? According to Chris Tomasson of InDenverTimes.com Kenyon Martin is hoping to return to his regular minutes as soon as tomorrow against the Washington Wizards.  When asked how much he would play Kenyon responded, “Probably regular minutes.  I think so.”  The reason Kenyon thinks he is ready […]

2008-09 Game 69: Denver Nuggets 111 – Memphis Grizzlies 109

Box Score | Highlights The Denver Nuggets 111-109 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies was a perfect example of the difference between playing hard and playing with focus.  From the opening tip the Nuggets played hard.  They understood the importance of this game and they wanted to win.  But their hard work returned poor results because […]

2008-09 Game 69: Denver Nuggets at Memphis Grizzlies Game Thread

The Denver Nuggets have righted the ship at home, but their last road game was the debacle in Sacramento and they still have a five game road losing streak to teams with records under .500 (Sacramento, Indiana, Milwaukee, Chicago and New Jersey). They had better turn that around tonight in Memphis.  Look for Kenyon to […]

2008-09 Game 68: Denver Nuggets 121 – New Jersey Nets 96

Box Score | Highlights I finally saw some of what I have been looking for from the Denver Nuggets during their 121-96 victory over the New Jersey Nets.  It did not last for long, primarily only in the first quarter, which kind of made it not quite as cool, but it did happen.  The Nuggets […]

2008-09 Game 67: Denver Nuggets 107 – Los Angeles Clippers 94

Box Score | Highlights The Denver Nuggets supplied us with another relatively easy, but uninspiring win.  Denver cashed in on runs in the first and third quarter to cruise to a 107-94 win over the slumping Los Angeles Clippers.  The Nuggets played a very strong first ten minutes and it was good to see them […]

Offday Offerings – Replacing Dahntay?

I cannot believe I did not notice this sooner, but it just donned on me that I did not remember seeing Dahntay Jones play at all against the Thunder last night.  A quick glance at the box score shows that Jones had the DNP Coach’s Decision. Could it be that George Karl has decided to […]

2008-09 Game 66: Denver Nuggets 112 – Oklahoma City Thunder 99

Box Score | Highlights It sure was nice to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder in a game that did not require a last second shot for once.  Denver was in control from start to finish, but before we get too carried away with an easy win against a less than stellar squad, let’s take a […]

2008-09 Game 66: Denver Nuggets vs Oklahoma City Thunder Game Thread

Even without Kevin Durant the Thudner are rolling.  Jeff Green is back and Russell Westbrook, Thabo Sefolosha and Nenad Krstic are all playing well.  Even Kyle Weaver is hitting his threes. No Kenyon tonight (as I pointed out he tweaked his back on the first play of the second half against Houston), but Anthony Carter […]
