The Nuggets showed a much better effort after last night’s debacle in Charlotte. The Brooklyn Nets proved to be too much however as the Nuggets go into the Christmas break with consecutive losses. Denver Nuggets 96 Final Recap | Box Score 102 Brooklyn Nets Kenneth Faried, PF 32 MIN | 8-11 FG | 4-5 FT […]
Unfortunately no recap tonight, but it also wasn’t much of a game. The Nuggets trailed wire-to-wire in a 28-point loss in Charlotte. Ty Lawson was the only starter in double figures for the second game in a row, and he broke a streak of 20 consecutive games with at least 9 assists, finishing with just […]
Late Sunday morning, the Nuggets announced that Danilo Gallinari is out with a right knee meniscal tear. Gallo has spent the better part of two years recovering from multiple ACL surgeries in his left knee. Gallo apparently suffered the injury after scoring a season-high 19 points in 28 minutes in a win over the Pacers. […]
Neither team shot straight in one of the uglier games of the season. After 48 minutes the Nuggets held Indiana to 30.7% shooting and hang on for a 76-73 win. Denver moves to 12-15 and 8-6 at home.
From an amazing first half, to a ridiculously dreary 3rd quarter, followed by a crazy, technical laden 4th quarter, the Nuggets pulled out a very entertaining win. The Nuggets were able to pull together in the 4th quarter to make up for their offense’s inefficiency in the 3rd quarter, which made the difference at the end of the […]

A fun back and forth game and a spirited Nuggets performance was quelled by one James Harden doing what he does best, leaving Denver 10-15 on the season. Houston Rockets 115 Final Recap | Box Score 111 Denver Nuggets Kenneth Faried, PF 32 MIN | 5-12 FG | 1-2 FT | 11 REB | 2 […]
The Denver Nuggets continue to be mentioned in trade rumors, this time in connection with the mercurial Lance Stephenson. After Denver’s small forward Wilson Chandler was mentioned in connection with the Oklahoma City Thunder earlier this week, Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio named the Nuggets in a roundup of Lance Stephenson trade rumors Monday. […]
An exhausted Nuggets team fought about as much as they could in the second half, but the double whammy of a rested and superior team in the Spurs proved too much. San Antonio Spurs 99 Final Recap | Box Score 91 Denver Nuggets Wilson Chandler, SF 36 MIN | 6-10 FG | 0-0 FT | […]
After an impressive first quarter that had the Nuggets up 10, Houston started to impart its will on Denver and the game never really seemed within reach again. Lawson did his job with 19 points and 12 assists but a poor shooting night from Chandler and Afflalo, going 8-30 combined, sunk the Nuggets offense. The […]
With over a quarter of the 2014-2015 NBA season in the books, we’re ready to give the Denver Nuggets their first progress report of the year. Joining us for an early season 3-on-3 is special guest Aaron Lopez. Although he’s moved on from the Nuggets beat, Aaron covered the team for the Associated Press, Rocky […]

Gold bless Timofey Mozgov. Bless him hard and bless him thoroughly. Because in a crazy world with terrorism, natural disasters, famine and disease, all Timofey Mozgov wants is for you to vote for Ty Lawson to make the All-Star team — and to not operate motor vehicles while under the influence of alcohol. It’s that […]
The Nuggets snapped a four game skid with a blowout victory over the Miami Heat. Playing their fourth game in six nights, the Heat stalled out in the second half against an energized Nuggets team. Denver moves to 10-12 on the season and 6-4 at home.
It wasn’t a game winner, but Patrick Patterson’s wide open three with 30 seconds left in regulation basically sealed the deal for the eventual Toronto Raptors overtime win. The Nuggets had just got a huge basket from Arron Afflalo to go up 102-99, and they failed to fully grasp the situation coming back on the […]
This is nice. People within the Nuggets organization are now openly questioning whether this roster has flaws. All it took was a 9-12 start to make it happen. Of course, it’s interesting coming from Brian Shaw. I’d love to hear what Tim Connelly has to say about some of Shaw’s minutes distributions. Ah, the 2014-15 […]
The Nuggets played hard for four quarters, they played good basketball for one half and they completely ran out of gas for five minutes in overtime. Had Brian Shaw allowed his bench to play more and gotten his team up out of the gate, we’re likely talking about a Nuggets win as opposed to a […]

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.
