It sounds odd doesn’t it? After all, the entire object of the game of basketball is to score more points than the opposing team. And scoring more points invariably means you won the game, which by definition should be the most productive thing that could possibly occur. Right? On its surface that sounds right, but […]
Much of the talk around the Denver Nuggets over the last few days has been deciding whether the trade of Timofey Mozgov is a white flag. Has the front office started a full rebuild or not? Judging by their performance Friday night against the Kings it’s hard to tell. They’re certainly too talented to keep […]
A huge second half surge propels the Nuggets to a 118-108 win in Sacramento. The Nuggets have won two in a row on the road and four straight overall.

It has been a long time coming. Rumors about the Cleveland Cavaliers’ interest in acquiring Timofey Mozgov began surfacing as early as this summer, and have rarely died down since. Initially, the Denver Nuggets’ stance was firm, resisting the urge to move Mozgov, as they steadfastly viewed him as a piece they could build around […]
Reports out of ESPN’s Marc Stein and Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski confirm that the long-rumored Mozgov to Cavs trade is a done deal. The Nuggets are trading Mozgov for two first-round picks and no additional players in return. The Cavaliers will use an exception to absorb Mozgov’s $4.65mil salary. Cleveland just acquired a 2015 first […]
Nuggets finally get a road win after a long painful stretch of losses. Denver Nuggets 110 Final Recap | Box Score 101 Minnesota Timberwolves Kenneth Faried, PF 24 MIN | 6-10 FG | 3-6 FT | 7 REB | 2 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 15 PTS | 0Apparently, […]
When I was 20 years old, I was trying to figure out who I was, and what I wanted for my future. I had recently dropped out of college, or more accurately, I had been asked as politely as possible to leave. I was forced to find full time employment, and for the first time […]
Outstanding games from Ty Lawson, Arron Afflalo and especially Jusuf Nurkic, who will no longer be our little secret after tonight. The Memphis Grizzlies looked tired and uninspired the night after a battle with the Lakers in Los Angeles and only Marc Gasol made any sort of impact at all, leading to a dominating 114-85 victory […]

This week’s comment comes courtesy of Jazz Nugget Nation, I don’t want to hear the words of fire Shaw. We should really hear the […]
It was a heartbreaking loss for the Nuggets tonight after a solid first half full of energy and effort. In the end, the deteriorating interior defense and the star power of Derrick Rose and Jimmy Butler was just too much to overcome as the Bulls knocked off the Nuggets 106-101. Hopefully the momentum from tonight’s […]
Happy New Year! Here’s to moving on from a tumultuous 2014 and hoping for a more cheerful 2015 for the Denver Nuggets!
There was a point in Tuesday night’s loss to the Los Angeles Lakers that I wondered out loud, i.e. on Twitter, whether Brian Shaw would make it through this weekend as head coach of the Denver Nuggets. It was a statement that received a variety of responses, most of which consisted of a resounding belief that […]
It’s another home loss for the Nuggets as Kobe Bryant’s triple-double lifts the Lakers to a 111-103 victory at Pepsi Center. Nurkic had a career night, but the Nuggets’ starters were embarrassed as the Lakers shot well over 50% the entire night. Denver falls to 13-19 and 9-8 at home.
In a season that has had no shortage of frustration, injuries and inconsistencies, this is a post to give Nuggets Nation a reason to look forward to 2015 and beyond.
Another subpar defensive performance late sinks Denver’s tenacious effort to stay in the game as the Nuggets fall once again to one of the many teams in the league better than them.
