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 […]
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.
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 […]
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 Nuggets were not in this game from the first whistle. This looks like how I expect the 76ers to look in late March. Things are bad and it’s hard to even imagine a light at the end of the tunnel. More depressing notes below… Denver Nuggets 109 Final Recap | Box Score 131 Sacramento […]
The Nuggets shoot 39% en route to their second straight loss and are now 1-2 on the season. Check out the grades below and a few of my thoughts on what’s going wrong. Hint: it’s everything.
In the first game of the 2014-15 season the Denver Nuggets started off languid but kicked it into high gear late thanks to a standout defensive stint from Alonzo Gee and endless energy from Kenneth Faried. Though it was rough, the Nuggets prevailed by 10 in the end. More analysis below… Detroit Pistons 79 Final […]
Over the years I’ve gathered this sneaking suspicion that I — and to some extend Roundball Mining Company — have developed a reputations as a cynic. I’ve never really debunked this sentiment, as there are a lot worse things in this world to be called than cynical (many of which I’ve also been called), however […]
With the 2014-15 regular season right around the corner, we at RMC figured it was about time for some good ol’ fashioned preseason predictions — you know, MVP, total wins, Sixth Man, the whole nine yards. But more importantly we wanted to look ahead, to irrationally predict the zeitgeist of the Denver Nuggets come June […]
With the 2014-15 regular season creeping closer each day, we figure it’s only right we start making totally unsupported predictions about where the Denver Nuggets fit into the grand scheme of the NBA. But before we get into playoffs, records and awards, we must first analyze the players that will ultimately determine how successful this […]
The Nuggets first preseason game of the 2014-15 season… OK, honestly, I don’t know how to do these because it’s been so long. Players played? Lovers loved? Nurkic thundered? Or is that a Fleetwood Mac song? I don’t know what’s happening. Let’s get into the game notes… Box score. — Not gonna lie. It was […]
With Denver Nuggets Media Day complete and training camp underway, here are three quick observations of where the team is at:
Predicting the distribution of minutes for any NBA team is in many ways a doomed venture from the start. One need look no further than the 2013-14 Nuggets to find ample evidence of a team’s inherent unpredictability. A whopping four torn ACLs, an unexpected player-coach meltdown involving seasoned veteran Andre Miller, the addition of Aaron […]
Veteran free agent Mike Miller will be visiting the Denver Nuggets on Sunday and Monday, according to ESPN Radio 92.9FM in Memphis. Denver was rumored to have interest in the 34 year-old shooter, but a two-day recruiting pitch seems to confirm that the Nuggets are closing in on a serious bid to sign Miller, possibly to a multi-year […]
A few nights ago I was watching college basketball. This year’s impressive crop of college freshman were on display, all turning in big performances. One of those players was Jabari Parker. My goodness, Jabari Parker. I’ve been watching college basketball with an eye focused on scouting for three to four years now, and I don’t […]
As the 2013-14 NBA season approaches, many questions hover around the Denver Nuggets. Almost everything that made the team successful in years past (especially last season) has now departed. There’s no more George Karl, no more Masai Ujiri, no more Andre Iguodala — no more certainty. There’s still a deep and talented roster, however the […]
