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! The good news for me is that it’ll be a whole lot easier to project wins and losses this month (Spoiler Alert: there’ll be a lot more losses […]
That’s five straight losses and nine straight at home. The Nuggets were blown out of their own building again, this time by the Jazz who won by 22.
Despite an entertaining and energetic game through 3 quarters, another poor shooting performance doomed the Nuggets to a 110-96 loss to the Phoenix Suns. However, in a season where losses are wins for the Denver Nuggets, Joffrey Lauvergne impressed, Will Barton showed off some serious skills and athleticism and Jusuf Nurkic came up with the […]
The Denver Nuggets are blown out of the building.
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:
Having played their last game before the All-Star break, the Denver Nuggets are likely to start wheeling and dealing to reshape the roster before their games resume on the night of the February 20th trade deadline. There have been a number of rumors swirling around NBA circles and the Nuggets seem to have a part […]
After trailing by as many 22 in the third quarter, the Nuggets used a big fourth quarter surge to lose to the Detroit Pistons by just 10. Ty Lawson led the way with 20 and 9, but everyone else was pretty miserable. With the loss the Nuggets completed an 0-3 road trip against teams that […]
The Nuggets finally play a decent game and suffer a routine, acceptable loss to the Boston Celtics. It’s the same result, but a massive improvement compared to what we saw over the past week.
The 76ers are tanking and playing their fourth game in five nights, but had no problem dismantling the hapless Nuggets tonight. For the Denver Nuggets, it was just another day — a third consecutive blowout loss and perhaps the most demoralizing of them all. Sam Hinkie, the architect of the current 76ers, has drawn the […]
Here is a game-by-game breakdown/projection for every Denver Nuggets game in February. The biggest wildcard in the upcoming month is without a doubt what kind of moves the Denver Nuggets front office decides to make leading up to the February 20th trade deadline. With so much uncertainty there, I plan on projecting the games based […]
The streak is over. The Nuggets continued a series of solid efforts and were finally able to finish a game for a 93-85 win in New Orleans. Denver was unusually solid defensively, holding the Pelicans to just 40.9% eFG. The Nuggets racked up 30 assists and smashed the Pelicans in bench scoring 30-16. All of […]
Judgment Day is fast approaching for the Denver Nuggets. As we enter the second half of the NBA season, the dominoes have begun to fall and we’re now less than a month away from the February 20th trade deadline. It’s a near certainty that the roster we’re looking at today will look nothing like the one that […]

The Nuggets were able to take advantage of the altitude and a short-handed Dallas team playing in their second game of a back-to-back. This game ended up being closer than it should have been, and even though there were a couple momentary lapses on defense and offense, it was still a highly entertaining game. The […]
