Benjamin Hochman of the Denver Post reported on two injury updates yesterday. Unfortunately, neither of them brought us encouraging news.
The Nuggets defeated the Warriors 104-98 on Monday to go to 3-0 and stay undefeated in the preseason. Here are some game notes…
The Denver Nuggets have five preseason games left on the schedule, and tonight versus the Golden State Warriors (7pm/MT) will be the first of only two to be played at the Pepsi Center. Denver did win its first two games, and now that they’ve been played we have gotten the chance to see some of […]
The Nuggets and Spurs are currently tied 45-45 at halftime. Here are some quick thoughts on the first half: The leading story so far is Corey Brewer, who exploded for 17 points in 11 minutes. He has been the usual bundle of energy, and actually created a couple of his own mid-range scoring opportunities (though […]
The post-Carmelo Anthony era of the Denver Nuggets began, of course, on the day he was traded to New York. That day would mark a historic sea change in the Nuggets culture, and in its wake the newly assembled team handled what could have been a much rougher transition remarkably well, closing out the season […]
Henry Abbot, senior writer at ESPN and founder of the TrueHoop blog and network (of which Roundball Mining Company is proud to be a part) recently published an interesting article entitled “Offensive rebounds come with a cost.” In it, in response to John Hollinger’s observation that last season’s Boston Celtics were the worst offensive rebounding […]
Coming in at No. 8 on Roundball Mining Company’s #NuggetsRank list is sophomore sensation, Jordan Hamilton. To many readers this may come as as surprise and even an injustice; after all, Hamilton has yet to log an extensive stretch of significant minutes at the NBA level in his brief career. But in the eyes of […]
As we progress through #NuggetsRank our next player is the physical manifestation of the stats versus scouting debate. Corey Brewer is a player who does almost nothing well that can be quantified by statistics, but he has managed to be ranked ninth on Denver’s stacked roster.
On Oct. 6 the Nuggets faced the Clippers in the first preseason game of the year. Though not much was at stake, the players seemed to approach the game as if it were late April, not early October. The contest culminated with two incredible last-second layups: one by Eric Bledsoe and the other by Ty […]
The Denver Nuggets will kick off their 2012 preseason campaign against the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday, Oct. 6, at 8:30 p.m. in Las Vegas. Because the Colorado Rapids are playing at 7 p.m., the game will not be televised on Altitude. NBATV will be airing a replay of the Dallas Mavericks preseason game in […]
Training camp officially starts today, hot on the heels of media day where the Nuggets announced they’ve finalized their 17-man roster with guards Anthony Carter and Ben Uzoh. The Uzoh addition is an interesting one. His name was one of many New Jersey Nets linked to Denver in the early days of the Melo saga. […]
For the first time in Roundball Mining Company history a member of our team — yours truly — was able to attend Nuggets Media Day. It was an incredible, eye-opening experience and we cannot thank the Nuggets organization enough for allowing us the opportunity to gain this type of coverage of the team we all […]
October has arrived, and with it the end of the NBA offseason. Today is media day in the NBA, and the Denver Nuggets will open the doors of the Pepsi Center to the press prior to the beginning of training camp tomorrow. And we are now less than a week away from Denver’s first preseason […]
