2009-10 Game 75: Denver Nuggets 93 – Dallas Mavericks 109

Box Score | Highlights I hate to say I told you so: While the Nuggets announced that Kenyon “is expected to return” at some point this season, there is no timeline. No week to ten days or two to four weeks. Expected to return makes me a little bit queasy. Honestly, Denver can handle life […]

2009-10 Game 74: Denver Nuggets 97 – Orlando Magic 103

Possessions Versus Minutes

My Annual March “The End is Near” Post

Box Score | Highlights I have no idea where to start after that monstrosity. The combination of horrific defense, staggeringly gruesome offense, conspiracy theory inducing end of game officiating and Anthony Carter was mind numbingly stupefying. Let’s get the officiating issue out of the way so we can focus on how dismal the Nuggets were. […]

2009-10 Game 64: Denver Nuggets 110 – Minnesota Timberwolves 102

Box Score | Highlights (make sure to see J.R.’s huge alley oop dunk at the 34 second mark) J.R. Smith started the game missing his first two three point attempts and closed the game out missing his final five. In between those seven misses he converted three in a row during a one minute and […]

Thrashing the Thunder, Melo vs Durant, Adding Bigs and Some Links

The Nuggets were certainly due for a breakout game and the Thunder apparently forgot to drink their energy drinks this morning. The Nuggets certainly rediscovered their ability to pass, score in the paint and run the […]
