The Denver Nuggets lost to the Atlanta Hawks today by virtue of, surprise surprise, an atrocious first half. Trailing 36-57 after 24 minutes, they never got closer than seven points in the second half, and the Hawks seemed in control the whole time.
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 […]

Through a tumultuous start to the season, an early staple of Denver’s consistently inconsistent offense has been Aaron Afflalo’s and Wilson Chandler’s three point shooting. While shooting at a merely respectable 37 and 39 percent clip respectively, the pair make up for 45 percent of the team’s total three point attempts. It’s not just how and […]
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 […]
The headline is pretty self explanatory. But in case you’re a fan of redundancy I’ll say it again: Randy Foye is out three weeks according to Chris Dempsey of The Denver Post. Dempsey is reporting the injury to be a right quad tear and that no surgery will be needed. Let the Gary Harris enthusiasm […]
The Nuggets won their fourth straight in ugly fashion, downing the Lakers 101-94 in overtime. Grades for the players and coach are below.
Midway through the first, when Gallo passed up a wide open three to casually toss a pass to a rolling McGee for a casual dunk to extend the lead to 20, it seemed, for the first time this season, that the Nuggets could be who we thought they were. New Orleans Pelicans 97 Final […]

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 […]
Just a few hours after ESPN posts an article about why the Nuggets are so terrible, they respond with a convincing win over the Eastern favorite Cleveland Cavaliers. Maybe Shaw used that as motivation in the pregame? Denver Nuggets 106 Final Recap | Box Score 97 Cleveland Cavaliers Kenneth Faried, PF 22 MIN | 4-6 […]
