Recap: Portland Trailblazers 130, Denver Nuggets 113

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 […]

Rapid Reaction: Shame

Note: I’m switching to more of a free-form recap format as the general nature of the game and the team at large demand it. Individual grades and analysis of the micro problems fly in the face of the overwhelming macro issues currently plaguing the team. We’ll return to to the rapid reaction format next time.

Rapid Reaction: Sacramento Kings 131, Denver Nuggets 109

The Nuggets were not in this game from the first whistle. This looks like how I expect the 76ers to look in late March. Things are bad and it’s hard to even imagine a light at the end of the tunnel. More depressing notes below… Denver Nuggets 109 Final Recap | Box Score 131 Sacramento […]

Rapid Reaction: Denver Nuggets 89, Detroit Pistons 79

In the first game of the 2014-15 season the Denver Nuggets started off languid but kicked it into high gear late thanks to a standout defensive stint from Alonzo Gee and endless energy from Kenneth Faried. Though it was rough, the Nuggets prevailed by 10 in the end. More analysis below… Detroit Pistons 79 Final […]

Recap: Denver Nuggets 104, Los Angeles Clippers 93

The Denver Nuggets and Los Angles Clippers played a game Saturday that was televised on NBA TV. Because it appeared on national television (unlike most of the Nuggets’ preseason games) I decided to do a small recap, or rather publish a list of notes I made in chronological order as the game played out — […]

Recap: L.A. Lakers 98, Denver Nuggets 95

The Nuggets first preseason game of the 2014-15 season… OK, honestly, I don’t know how to do these because it’s been so long. Players played? Lovers loved? Nurkic thundered? Or is that a Fleetwood Mac song? I don’t know what’s happening. Let’s get into the game notes… Box score. — Not gonna lie. It was […]

Summer League recap: Denver Nuggets 76 Chicago Bulls 103

The Nuggets found themselves on the other end of a beatdown in their second summer league game, losing by a score of 103-76 to the Chicago Bulls. Former Nugget (for about 10 minutes) Doug McDermott torched Denver for 31 points on 12 shots. Quincy Miller had another big scoring night for the Nuggets, finishing up with 24 […]

Summer League recap: Denver Nuggets 104, Toronto Raptors 83

The Denver Nuggets’ first Summer League game of 2014 was all about three players: Gary Harris, Quincy Miller and Erick Green. While Harris is already under contract heading into next season, Miller and Green remain the most likely candidates to secure the Nuggets’ final two roster spots. Not surprisingly, it was these three who carried […]
