Neither team shot straight in one of the uglier games of the season. After 48 minutes the Nuggets held Indiana to 30.7% shooting and hang on for a 76-73 win. Denver moves to 12-15 and 8-6 at home.
From an amazing first half, to a ridiculously dreary 3rd quarter, followed by a crazy, technical laden 4th quarter, the Nuggets pulled out a very entertaining win. The Nuggets were able to pull together in the 4th quarter to make up for their offense’s inefficiency in the 3rd quarter, which made the difference at the end of the […]
With over a quarter of the 2014-2015 NBA season in the books, we’re ready to give the Denver Nuggets their first progress report of the year. Joining us for an early season 3-on-3 is special guest Aaron Lopez. Although he’s moved on from the Nuggets beat, Aaron covered the team for the Associated Press, Rocky […]
The Nuggets snapped a four game skid with a blowout victory over the Miami Heat. Playing their fourth game in six nights, the Heat stalled out in the second half against an energized Nuggets team. Denver moves to 10-12 on the season and 6-4 at home.
It wasn’t a game winner, but Patrick Patterson’s wide open three with 30 seconds left in regulation basically sealed the deal for the eventual Toronto Raptors overtime win. The Nuggets had just got a huge basket from Arron Afflalo to go up 102-99, and they failed to fully grasp the situation coming back on the […]
The Nuggets played hard for four quarters, they played good basketball for one half and they completely ran out of gas for five minutes in overtime. Had Brian Shaw allowed his bench to play more and gotten his team up out of the gate, we’re likely talking about a Nuggets win as opposed to a […]
So, I guess that happened? What that is exactly I’m not sure but apparently the Nuggets got whooped. Unfortunately none of our writers were able to catch the game so we’re relying on you, our loyal readers, to recap this one. Remember to play nice and to take things into context. This is one game. […]
After a disastrous 1-6 start where Murphy’s Law was in full effect, the Denver Nuggets have turned 180 degrees. These days rather than everything going wrong, almost everything is running smoothly. The Nuggets are 7-3 in their last 10 games and Brian Shaw appears to have found a series of rotations that are working effectively. […]
In what ended up becoming one of the more exciting games this season the Nuggets took the Blazers down to the wire yet fell short in the end. Lawson had a standout performance as did Wilson Chandler. Unfortunately, neither outperformed LaMarcus Aldridge and the Blazers as whole. Portland Trail Blazers 105 Final Recap | Box […]
That’s what I like to call a vintage Pepsi Center win, wherein the Nuggets hit their stride with an early run then ride their depth to a blowout victory. Led by Arron Afflalo’s 22 points, the Nuggets beat Phoenix 122-97 for their fourth straight home win.
After a promising start, the Nuggets came out flat in the third quarter and played catch-up the rest of the way. Gerald Green dominated, the Nuggets were roughed up on the interior and ultimately ran out of gas.
The Denver Nuggets won their fifth straight game against the Bulls on Tuesday. Ty Lawson broke Kirk Hinrich’s ankles on an assist (yes, you heard that correctly) and Danilo Gallinari made a ridiculous shot that should have counted even though it didn’t (confusing, I know). Finally the Nuggets are actually fun to watch again. More […]
In light of the Nuggets sucking quite well through the first 10 games of the season, The Denver Post’s Christopher Dempsey had a lively reader mailbag from a few days back. In his responses to the questions posed he notes how (A) Shaw won’t be fired this season, (B) the Nuggets roster would be viewed […]
The Denver Nuggets are on a winning streak as they best the Thunder of Oklahoma City for a 107-100 win. Grades and commentary are posted below.
As Charlie posted on Monday, ESPN.com’s Kevin Arnovitz has composed a fantastic dissection of the Denver Nuggets organization under Josh Kroenke. To echo what Charlie said, there’s a lot to digest. This is no light bread-and-butter appetizer, but rather a savory meat and potatoes entree. It’s heavy and sometimes difficult to swallow, but without question […]
The Nuggets beat the Pacers in blowout fashion for their first win in over 2 weeks. Denver is now 1-0 on a 3 game road swing that will take them to New York and Cleveland next.
The Denver Nuggets are a bad basketball team. Maybe the worst. That’s not just a hot sportz take, it’s a careful distillation of all the evidence surrounding a franchise in turmoil. Ever since the failed re-tooling and re-branding of a 57-win team, the Nuggets have followed the natural progression of a rudderless franchise at odds […]
Following in Charlie’s footsteps from a few nights back when he decided to forgo player grades, I too refuse to grade anybody’s performance this game as it’s not seeing the forest for the trees, so to speak. Doing a traditional recap at this point is nothing but persnickety. Instead I will write something I was […]
If you’ve been paying any attention to the Nuggets through the first handful of games this season you’ve likely noticed a few frightening patterns. One of those is the team’s absolute refusal to play anything remotely resembling defense in any shape or form, which is detailed below in a guest post by fellow Nuggets fan […]
