Unable to overcome the absence of every remaining point guard on the roster, a severely thinned-out Nuggets squad suffered yet another ugly loss at home. The Raptors cruised to an easy win while the Nuggets continued to struggle offensively, committing 26 turnovers and notching just 6 fast break points. The worst news of the night […]
Sans the steady hand of Ty Lawson, Denver’s offense stuttered down the stretch as they drop a tough one on the road to the Bobcats.
The Nuggets went into Sleep Train Arena the night after knocking off the NBA best Indiana Pacers and took advantage of a few key Sacramento injuries to defeat the Kings 125-117. Ty Lawson led six Denver players with double digit points with 27 points while Nate Robinson contributed 12 points and eight assists to lead […]
[Note: Unfortunately, I couldn't get the Rapid Reaction generator working, so a regular, old-fashioned recap follows the jump.] The Denver Nuggets came out strong, building a 19-point halftime lead, then weathered Indiana’s third quarter scoring barrage to hang on for one of their biggest wins of the season. In facing a powerhouse with the best […]
Denver had absolutely no answer for LaMarcus Aldridge who scored 44 points, including the last 15 for Portland, while Ty Lawson was scoreless in the second half and the Nuggets blew a 15 point second half lead to fall in Portland 110-105. Denver now moves to 20-21 on the season with a game looming against […]
Denver fell behind 8-0 to start the game and never was able recover as they fell to a struggling Suns team in Phoenix by double digits 117-103.
The hallmark of the 2013-14 Denver Nuggets is inconsistency on every imaginable front: shooting, effort, defense, rebounding, you name it. A team that is equally capable of going to Oakland and beating one of the hottest teams in the league on their own court, and then two days later getting outplayed and beaten at home […]
In what was likely the most exciting and meaningful game of the season, the Denver Nuggets escaped from Oakland with a much-needed win. J.J. Hickson had a career high in rebounds while the Nuggets’ backcourt outplayed the “Splash Brothers” duo of Steph Curry and Klay Thompson. But it was the diminutive Nate Robinson who really […]
After winning five games in a row the Nuggets must have thought they were automatically exempt from playing NBA-caliber teams for the rest of the season, because that’s how they played tonight against the Jazz. It was embarrassing, for everyone involved — bust mostly the players and coaches.
Denver stayed hot and destroyed a decimated Orlando Magic team playing the second game of a back to back 120-94. The game was never all that close as Denver got up double digits in the first quarter and built on that lead as the game went on. Everyone did a bit of everything in a […]
Although it could never truly be #THUNDERNUGGETS without Russell Westbrook (get well soon Russ), Denver still treated the game with the usual amount of reverence. Ty Lawson ran really fast, Randy Foye flipped off his shooting slump, Evan Fournier did some cool stuff, and Quincy Miller did the Mailman dunk. It was a pretty good […]
The Nuggets got up big early, extended the lead to huge in the middle and coasted late on their way to an absolute destruction of the Celtics tonight in Denver.
What. Just. Happened? I don’t know. I’ve tried to explain it below, through grades and numbers and analysis, but truth be told, I still have absolutely no clue as to what transpired this game. I honestly feel like I was abducted by a badass basketball UFO for like two hours or something, then dropped back […]
After dropping eight games in a row the Nuggets were finally able to hold it together for 48 minutes and secure a win at home. Randy Foye, Evan Fournier and Timofey Mozgov all shined, but it was Ty Lawson’s 18 points, 12 assists and three steals that sealed the deal for the Nuggets.
The Nuggets gave up 44 points in the second quarter and dropped their eighth straight game 114-102. Everyone gets an F tonight for grades because that is what happens when you get blown out at home by a team with nine (now 10) wins, and just two (now three) on the road. Below is a […]
