Taking the pulse of the Nuggets throughout the season With the first 10% of the season in the books, the Nuggets are off to a surprisingly decent 4-4 start. Here are a few things to notice from the first 8 games:
Kenneth Faried had a beautiful tip in to lead the Nuggets to their second home win of the season.Gallinari had 25 points to lead the Nuggets and Faried finished with 19. Rookie guard Emmanuel Mudiay added 16 points and 11 assists for his second double-double. As the Denver Nuggets escaped with a 103-102 victory over […]
Denver looks to get a streak going as they take on The Milwaukee Bucks tonight at The Can. The Nuggets fresh off their first home win of the 2015-16 NBA season face off against a banged up Bucks team that many had high hopes for. But, so far have not been what many had predicted. The […]
Rookie point guard Emmanuel Mudiay came through with some huge plays in a close fourth quarter against the Portland Trailblazers. First, watch Mudiay put a quick move on Damian Lillard to create space for the baseline jumper. Mudiay squares his feet before rising up for the shot, a difficult one to make on the […]
Emmanuel Mudiay delivered in the clutch and the Nuggets finally shot the ball well at home, edging out the Portland Trailblazers 108-104 for their first home win of the season.
Portland (4-3) who blew a 13-point lead and was outscored 41-11 in the fourth quarter of a 120-103 loss to Detroit on Sunday, face a Nuggets team struggling in the paint and adjusting to a new system.The Nuggets are 0-2 at home and have dropped four of their past five overall after falling 119-104 at Golden […]
The Nuggets lost a game to the Golden State Warriors Friday night, but the real damage started three seasons ago. It’s hard to believe that in April of 2013, when these two teams met in the first round of the playoffs, Denver was actually the favorite. The young Warriors were just beginning to ascend under […]
The Denver Nuggets have brought back forward Kostas Papanikolaou and subsequently waived guard Erick Green. The 6-foot-8, 225-pound Papanikolaou averaged 4.2 points and 2.7 rebounds in 43 games with Houston last season and came to Denver in the Lawson trade. But, was waived due to the size of his contract and the team not wanting it to […]
The Nuggets will enter Oracle Arena on the back end of a back-to-back after hosting the Jazz on Thursday night. Denver has gone 2-1 on the road this season. But were crushed by the Jazz in a double digit loss were they were once again dominated in the paint. Former Warriors assistant coach Michael Malone and current Nuggets […]
We’ve seen this movie before. Despite clearly being a little tired and not as sharp as they would have liked, the Utah Jazz came into Denver and imposed their will, erasing a double digit lead in the second half and cruising to a 96-84 win in the mile high city. It was the Denver Nuggets’ […]
The Nuggets face off against the Jazz tonight as they try to get above .500. Both teams are 2-2 and start a rookie in the backcourt. Nuggets rookie Emmanuel Mudiay had 12 and 10 for his first double-double in Tuesday’s 120-109 road win over the Los Angeles Lakers. The Jazz were one of the teams […]
The Nuggets snapped a two-game skid with a solid win in Los Angeles, keeping the Lakers winless and moving to 2-2 on the season. Emmanuel Mudiay recorded his first career double-double while Kenneth Faried led the way with a monster 28-point, 15-rebound performance. Grades after the jump.

The Nuggets’ early season schedule is chock full of a few games you just know are going to be an uphill battle. Sunday night’s road contest in OKC might as well have been Mount Everest. Despite coming out with better energy and effort than they showed against Minnesota, the Nuggets looked vastly outmatched by the […]
The Nuggets look to turn it around it after falling flat against the Timberwolves on Friday. Meanwhile, the Thunder have KD back and are 2-0 under new coach Billy Donovan. I expect an exciting one as coach Michael Malone adjusts his strategies after a very disappointing performance. The game tips off at 5pm mountain time on […]
After a sterling debut in Houston, the Nuggets crashed back to earth in their home opener, trailing wire-to-wire and losing to the Timberwolves 95-78. Denver moves to 1-1 on the season. From the opening tip, the Nuggets had trouble dealing with Minnesota’s size and length. Karl Anthony Towns and Kevin Garnett owned the paint as […]
