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.

2008-09 Game 62: Denver Nuggets 106 – Portland Trail Blazers 90

Box Score | Highlights Sure the Denver Nuggets beat the Portland Trail Blazers, but the real story was the homecoming of local boy and Denver hero Michael Ruffin.  What, you guys care more about beating the Blazers than the return of Ruffin?  Well, OK then. Hopefully we will look at tonight’s game as the return […]

2008-09 Game 62: Denver Nuggets vs Portland Trail Blazers Game Thread

During the All-Star break when the Nuggets had a three and a half game lead these next two games against Portland and at Utah looked to be important, but not life or death type matchups.  With the events that have transpired since then (the Nuggets slumping while the Blazers have surged and the Jazz have […]

2008-09 Game 61: Denver Nuggets 95 – Detroit Pistons 100

Box Score | Highlights The Denver Nuggets just cannot beat the Detroit Pistons.  They dropped another winnable game on the road and it is officially time to really start to be concerned about this team.  The Pistons started the game off on fire making six of their first eight shots, and they were able to […]

ESPN NBA Today Podcast

With the Nuggets in the news lately I was asked to be a guest on the ESPN.com NBA Today podcast.  Jason Smith and I discuss Carmelo’s suspension and future in Denver, the game in Detroit and whether or not the Nuggets would have been better off with Scott Hastings on the floor instead of Linas […]
