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.
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 […]
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.
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 […]
The Nuggets shoot 39% en route to their second straight loss and are now 1-2 on the season. Check out the grades below and a few of my thoughts on what’s going wrong. Hint: it’s everything.
This was a frustrating game. It was not a game that should be measured by entertainment, but by pure levels of pain and suffering. Let me explain… Denver Nuggets 91 FinalRecap | Box Score 102 Oklahoma City Thunder Kenneth Faried, PF 25 MIN | 3-8 FG | 1-2 FT | 6 REB | 0 AST […]
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 […]
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 — […]
Timofey Mozgov had himself a (preseason) game Wednesday, dropping 20 points and eight rebounds in only 20 minutes as the Nuggets pulled out a late 114-101 win over the visiting Oklahoma City Thunder. Ty Lawson added 12 points and seven assists, Darrell Arthur had 11 points and Alonzo Gee (Alonzo Gee is on the Nuggets […]
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 […]
In their final nonplayoff Summer League game of 2014 the Nuggets played, well, terribly. I honestly don’t know if I can go through with watching another one of these… things… whatever they are. Anyway, it was bad, nobody played good, and now I’m happy that it’s over.
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 […]
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 […]
Welp, that just happened. The 2013-14 Denver Nuggets season has officially come to a (somewhat brutal) end. The Nuggets fought hard the whole game but just didn’t bring the right type of mindset from the start to win. Throw in Jordan Crawford scoring a career high 40-something points (no box scores are working for this […]
The Nuggets fell behind early and never led in their penultimate game of the 2013-2014 season, a 12-point loss to the Clippers in LA.
In a less-than-meaningful game between two lottery-bound teams, bad offense ruled the day. Then, the second half came along and Denver exploded for 67 points, defeating the Jazz for their third straight win.
The Nuggets really, really tried hard to blow another game to the Rockets with a bad fourth quarter performance but they were able to hold on and defeat Houston 123-116. Randy Foye turned into a human fireball with 30 points, including a 22 points third quarter to secure their 11th straight record with a winning […]
Denver had the upset in their hands thanks to a furious second half rally but ultimately they forgot how to handle double teams leading to turnovers and missed a big late free throw before falling in overtime to the Houston Rockets .There were bright sides for Denver though as Aaron Brooks and Quincy Miller had […]
Nearly everybody on the roster came to play in what turned out to be one of the Nuggets’ best team performances of the year. Kenneth Faried scored a new career high, while Ty Lawson got back into the double-double category and Aaron Brooks put on yet another show off the bench. Now if the Nuggets […]
