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 […]

The Season Is Not Over, but I Am Afraid the Season Is Over

The Denver Nuggets just completed a disastrous stretch where they actually lost five games in only nine days.  I understand how physically demanding such a stretch is and how the Nuggets were short handed playing without Kenyon Martin in three of those games and Anthony Carter in four.  Those are all just excuses.  Denver has managed to […]

2008-09 Game 65: Denver Nuggets 95 – Houston Rockets 97

Box Score | Highlights I am not here to make excuses for the Denver Nuggets.  However, knowing the Nuggets were playing their fourth game in five nights against a hot team made victory in this game a long shot.  I think many of the mistakes the Nuggets made tonight were a result of fatigue. When […]

2008-09 Game 64: Denver Nuggets at Sacramento Kings Game Thread

Here is a partial list of teams the Denver Nuggets will play over their final 19 games.  Sacramento (twice), Oklahoma City (twice), the Clippers (twice), New Jersey, Memphis, Washington, Golden State, New York, Minnesota.  Those are twelve games the Nuggets should win.  It starts tonight with the Kings. Denver Nuggets Game Notes Previous Matchups:  Game […]

2008-09 Game 63: Denver Nuggets at Utah Jazz Game Thread

Tonight the Denver Nuggets have a shot at proclaiming to the world that the Northwest Division is theirs and they will not tolerate any discussion implying otherwise.  A win in Utah would put a stop to the Jazz’s nine game winning streak and reestablish a two game lead over Portland and a two and a […]
