2010-2011 Game 61: Denver Nuggets 100 Atlanta Hawks 90

Box Score | Highlights With the exception of a lethargic fourth quarter against the Blazers, the Nuggets are immediately showing promise in an area we’ve seen them struggle for years – closing games. In tonight’s ten point victory over Atlanta, the Nuggets willed themselves forward with key runs to close out quarters and stifle the […]

2010-2011 Game 60: Denver Nuggets 106 Portland Trail Blazers 107

Box Score | Highlights | Watch Replay It was something the Nuggets haven’t had to worry about in a very long time. With the ball, shot clock turned off and one bucket away from winning the game. If it wasn’t a straight up inbounds to Melo in isolation, it was a failed high pick and […]

2010-2011 Game 59: Denver Nuggets 89 Boston Celtics 75

Box Score | Highlights There was confusion, miscommunication, a few quizzical glances and some ugly shooting.  There was also effort, passion and a Nuggets team who clearly cared more about winning than anything else.  For years the Nuggets have been all about whether their talent can outweigh that of the opposition.  Now after two games […]

I’m […]

The Big Trade – Returning Meaning to the Season and Some Links

Charlie did a fantastic job of capturing the mood of Denver’s first game sans Carmelo Anthony.  It felt like the first outing since the season opening win over the Jazz, after which Melo said if he did not make a change now he never would, that felt meaningful.  I also expect to see the Nuggets […]

2010-2011 Game 58: Denver Nuggets 120 Memphis Grizzlies 107

Box Score | Highlights The day after trading away their two best players, the Denver Nuggets officially begin the post-Melo era with a walkover victory against the Memphis Grizzlies. They led by double digits throughout most of the game while handily outplaying the Grizz. I wanted to get that out of the way because while […]

Carmelo Anthony Trade – Q & A with KnickerBlogger

Analysis and Thoughts on Trading Carmelo Anthony to the New York Knicks

Almost exactly eleven months ago I wrote the following: Frankly, the chances of us seeing Melo take Manhattan are quite slim. Even so, if you’re a Nuggets booster, you might want to pray that a couple of big names take the Knicks’ money this year, just to be safe. Fast forward to February 21, 2011 […]

It’s over – Carmelo Anthony traded to the New York Knicks

Updated: Benjamin Hochman of the Denver Post has broken the story. A trade involving the Knicks and Minnesota Timberwolves has finally been completed. It is a done deal in principle, with minor details to be worked out following a conference call with NBA offices tomorrow. Details are known, but minor parameters such as draft pick […]

Someone is a Genius

I do not know who made the call, but I am supremely impressed with someone.  Whoever came up with the idea of trading Timofey Mozgov along with another Knick teammate, according to SI.com it would be Danilo Gallinari, from Denver to New Jersey may have ensured a deal will be completed and will be responsible […]

Carmelo Anthony Trade Watch – Any Day Now…

The Blame Game: Stan Kroenke’s Money Edition

With Carmelo Anthony’s eventual departure looming over the entire season, Nuggets fans have had nothing but time to point their fingers in dismay.

2010-2011 Game 57: Denver Nuggets 94 Milwaukee Bucks 87

Box Score | Highlights | Watch Replay Sigh of relief. That’s about all I can say as the Nuggets notch a nice win as a much needed break from the season starts now. I discussed earlier the implications and vastly different scenarios that could come into play over the critical stretch next week when no […]

Appreciating Melo and Chauncey Billups

When the Denver Nuggets take the floor against Milwaukee tonight, there will be more at stake than a regular season win. For one, depending on the outcome the Nuggets could end up anywhere from sixth to ninth place in the Western Conference standings. But more than that, it’s a time to reflect as all the […]

2010-2011 Game 56: Denver Nuggets 102 Houston Rockets 121

Box Score | Highlights This was a game and effort simply not worth the time it would take you to read about. Long story short, the Nuggets move to 0-2 on their three game road trip in demoralizing fashion at Houston. Since more important matters like the trade deadline loom, I’ll limit this exercise to […]

2010-2011 Game 55: Denver Nuggets 108 Memphis Grizzlies 116

Box Score | Highlights I have to admit, after reliving that incredible fourth quarter comeback against Dallas I almost bought back in. It’s been tempting at numerous times this season when the Nuggets occasionally act like the good team they think they are. Even through the first half of this game I thought it was […]
