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 […]
Note: I’m switching to more of a free-form recap format as the general nature of the game and the team at large demand it. Individual grades and analysis of the micro problems fly in the face of the overwhelming macro issues currently plaguing the team. We’ll return to to the rapid reaction format next time.
The guy the Cavs are trying to trade for is Tim[ofey] Mozgov from the Denver Nuggets. He played with David [Blatt] with the Russian national team. (…) They have been trying to trade for him for the last six, eight weeks. – See more at: http://hoopshype.com/rumors/tag/denver_nuggets#sthash.JXQ9HU5P.dpuf On Tuesday, longtime LeBron James and Cleveland Cavaliers reporter […]
The hallmark of the 2013-14 Denver Nuggets is inconsistency on every imaginable front: shooting, effort, defense, rebounding, you name it. A team that is equally capable of going to Oakland and beating one of the hottest teams in the league on their own court, and then two days later getting outplayed and beaten at home […]
The Denver Nuggets came up short on the tail end of a back-to-back, dropping a 10-point game to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

In Roundball’s recent Denver Nuggets’ Big Board 2.0 I stated, “If Faried does however manage to find his way past the Trailblazers, to put it simply: Nuggets fans should be ecstatic.” Little did I know however, that “ecstatic” wouldn’t even begin to cover the range of emotions I felt as David Stern announced Faried’s name […]
Quite a few storylines unfolded on Tuesday night in Secaucus, N.J., but none were bigger than the Cavaliers winning two of the top four overall picks behind the fortuitous, and confident, 14-year-old Nick Gilbert, son of Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert and team representative for the night.
With the Denver Nuggets already out of the playoffs and the NBA Draft a little over a month away, speculation on how the Nuggets will approach the draft and who it will take with the 22nd pick is firmly underway. Equipped with an enticing asset in Raymond Felton as well as the less attractive Al […]
With the first round of the 2011 NBA playoffs already underway and the Nuggets opening series against the Thunder not far behind, it’s time to look back, forward and all around at the season that has been and the playoff season that might be.
With the current Denver Nuggets squad far surpassing any expectations fans had following the historic Carmelo Anthony trade, it’s now time to start seriously looking at whether or not another 50-win season is approaching. With nine games left to play and our current record sitting at 44-29, you’d think 50 wins would be easily attainable […]
Recap by GoldenNugget Box Score | Highlights Well, apparently the Cavaliers new year’s resolution of winning one game in 2011 has been postponed for at least another contest. Friday night the Denver Nuggets held off the the Cavs 117-103 as they marched through Quicken Loans Arena led by Carmelo Anthony’s 33 point outburst.
Box Score | Highlights Apologies for no preview tonight, but I had a feeling this game might be… like it was. The Cavs have only won once in their past 23 games and end their six game road trip on the second night of a back to back. Although the Cavs rank near the bottom […]
Box Score | Highlights If you did not enjoy that game, you probably should not bother watching basketball anymore. When Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James first entered the NBA, tonight’s game is what the league had in mind. Two all-stars at the top of their game playing for two contenders going at each other possession […]
Box Score | Highlights Once again I am thrilled to be wrong. After posting that the Nuggets should rest their injured players against the Cavs, Denver went on and secured a wonderful 99-97 victory over the red hot Cavaliers. In my defense I was working under assumption that Chris Andersen was not playing and Nene […]
I have never promoted this before for the Denver Nuggets at any point during a season where they have a quality team capable of going places, but as much as I want to promote the band together and produce a super human effort I think tonight is a situation where Denver should play to win…on […]
