Despite a strong effort out of the gate, the Denver Nuggets self-destructed in the 2nd and 3rd quarters in Utah and fall to the Jazz 98-84. Despite the results, there were some bright spots from a couple of Denver’s younger players and a nice offensive effort from the Manimal.
In lieu of an in-depth analysis and projection of the Denver Nuggets remaining games, I’ll be projecting the remaining schedules of each of the teams immediately surrounding the Nuggets to give an idea of who should be expecting the most ping pong balls in the May 19th NBA Draft Lottery.
The Sixers come into Denver and sweep the season series against the Nuggets, winning by 14 on the second night of a back to back. The Nuggets never looked to be on the same page and put up their first real stinker of the Melvin Hunt era. Philadelphia 76ers 99 Final Recap | Box Score […]

On the second game of a back to back, with three of their top players listed as healthy scratches, the Nuggets put together an impressive effort in trying to take on the defensive juggernaut Memphis Grizzlies. They kept the game close till the very end, and actually had a realistic chance of coming out of […]
After a cold-shooting start to the game, the Denver Nuggets opened up a big lead in Minnesota in the second quarter with a combination of energy, movement and effort on both sides of the court. The bench provided a significant boost tonight and despite a decided size advantage, the Nuggets dominated the game in a […]
The Roundball Mining Company crew has been buzzing all day about the firing of Brian Shaw. Buzzing so much that we decided to run a special seven-man 5-on-5! 1. How would you grade Brian Shaw’s time as head coach in Denver? Johnny: F+ – It’s hard not to give a failing grade based on the […]
Brian Shaw elected to go small with the starting 5 tonight, inserting Randy Foye at the 2 and bumping Danilo Gallinari and Kenneth Faried to the 4 and 5 respectively. It didn’t do much to jump start the offense, but the team definitely came with more energy and looked like they were at least trying on […]
Here is a game-by-game breakdown/projection for every Denver Nuggets game in March. Despite my dreadful performance in projecting the February schedule, I’m back at it again in March!

After taking a few days to look back at one of the wildest trade deadlines we’ve ever seen, Roundball tries to wrap its collective head around what the heck we all just witnessed. Denver sent Arron Afflalo to Portland and the JaVale McGee era came to a close when the Nuggets shipped him and his […]
At last season’s trade deadline, then-rookie GM Tim Connelly didn’t mix words about where he thought the Nuggets were headed. He boldly proclaimed that his team got better after trading for Jan Vesely and Aaron Brooks, dismissing the notion that the Nuggets were doing anything other than reloading and getting healthy for another immediate playoff push. As we […]
In addition to adding three expiring contracts players from Portland, Denver agreed to terms with 2013 draft pick Joffrey Lauvergne today. Denver closes out deadline day with roughly the same draft picks as they started (swapping OKC’s future first rounder for Portland’s) and significantly more salary flexibility for this offseason. It remains to be seen if […]
Here is the latest trade deadline (Feb. 19, 1pm MST) buzz from around the league regarding the Denver Nuggets:
