2009-10 Game 78: Denver Nuggets 98 – Oklahoma City Thunder 94

Box Score | Highlights | Featured Blog: Daily Thunder There are certainly two ways to look at the Denver Nuggets’ 98-94 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder. The positive view is on a night where the Nuggets were missing Kenyon Martin and Chris Andersen and acting coach Adrian Dantley suffering with kidney stones and in […]

2009-10 Game 75: Denver Nuggets 93 – Dallas Mavericks 109

Box Score | Highlights I hate to say I told you so: While the Nuggets announced that Kenyon “is expected to return” at some point this season, there is no timeline. No week to ten days or two to four weeks. Expected to return makes me a little bit queasy. Honestly, Denver can handle life […]

2009-10 Game 74: Denver Nuggets 97 – Orlando Magic 103

Box Score | Highlights At this point in the season there are no moral victories. The Denver Nuggets may have given the Orlando Magic a really tough game on Sunday, but with the Nuggets now just half a game out of fifth place and facing a very difficult game in Dallas on Monday their 103-97 […]

My Annual March “The End is Near” Post

Box Score | Highlights I have no idea where to start after that monstrosity. The combination of horrific defense, staggeringly gruesome offense, conspiracy theory inducing end of game officiating and Anthony Carter was mind numbingly stupefying. Let’s get the officiating issue out of the way so we can focus on how dismal the Nuggets were. […]

2009-10 Game 64: Denver Nuggets 110 – Minnesota Timberwolves 102

Box Score | Highlights (make sure to see J.R.’s huge alley oop dunk at the 34 second mark) J.R. Smith started the game missing his first two three point attempts and closed the game out missing his final five. In between those seven misses he converted three in a row during a one minute and […]

Film Room – Nuggets Switching Screens to Perfection Versus Suns

The Denver Nuggets played tremendous half court defense against the Phoenix Suns in their 105-99 victory at the Pepsi Center. Below is what was originally supposed to be a few clips that turned into a mass quantity of clips documenting the Nuggets’ successful implementation of their switching scheme. A couple of things I forgot to […]

2009-10 Game 9: Denver Nuggets 102 – Milwaukee Bucks 108

Box Score | Highlights I have no doubt that fatigue played a role in the Denver Nuggets’ 108-102 loss against the Milwaukee Bucks. I wish I could say that fatigue was the only problem. Defensively Denver is not playing with any cohesion. On many possessions one player makes a mistake or gets beat and the […]

2009-10 Game 8: Denver Nuggets 90 – Chicago Bulls 89

Box Score | Highlights Before we get to the controversial ending in Chicago tonight, I need to address the game itself. I cannot go as far as to say the Nuggets did not deserve to win, they earned their lead that barely held up in the end, but I was seriously disappointed in their play […]

2009-10 Game 5: Denver Nuggets 122 – New Jersey Nets 94

I realize the Denver Nuggets ran the New Jersey Nets off the floor last night 122-94. I know they are 5-0 for the first time since Love Boat was considered good television. I get that the game was the second night of a back to back. Even so, I am a hoops perfectionist. I look […]

2009-10 Game 4: Denver Nuggets 111 – Indiana Pacers 93

Box Score | Highlights I only have time for a few thoughts on tonight’s 111-93 win in Indiana against the Pacers. Carmelo looked more like the Melo of old. I think he got caught up a little too much in trying to score on Dahntay Jones and took more difficult shots than he has been […]

2009-10 Game 3: Denver Nuggets 133 – Memphis Grizzlies 123

Box Score | Highlights Well, that was less than satisfying. The Nuggets had serious defensive issues, but managed to overcome their shoddy mental effort on that end of the floor thanks to another impressive offensive display by Carmelo Anthony in a 133-123 defeat of the Allen Iverson-less Memphis Grizzlies. Things started off poorly on the […]
