The Sixers come into Denver and sweep the season series against the Nuggets, winning by 14 on the second night of a back to back. The Nuggets never looked to be on the same page and put up their first real stinker of the Melvin Hunt era. Philadelphia 76ers 99 Final Recap | Box Score […]
The Denver Nuggets managed to keep it close despite a sloppy effort and porous defense. James Harden made his case for MVP racking up 50 points (a career high) and 10 rebounds in a 118 – 108 victory over the Nuggets.

After a cold-shooting start to the game, the Denver Nuggets opened up a big lead in Minnesota in the second quarter with a combination of energy, movement and effort on both sides of the court. The bench provided a significant boost tonight and despite a decided size advantage, the Nuggets dominated the game in a […]
Brian Shaw elected to go small with the starting 5 tonight, inserting Randy Foye at the 2 and bumping Danilo Gallinari and Kenneth Faried to the 4 and 5 respectively. It didn’t do much to jump start the offense, but the team definitely came with more energy and looked like they were at least trying on […]
That’s five straight losses and nine straight at home. The Nuggets were blown out of their own building again, this time by the Jazz who won by 22.

Despite an entertaining and energetic game through 3 quarters, another poor shooting performance doomed the Nuggets to a 110-96 loss to the Phoenix Suns. However, in a season where losses are wins for the Denver Nuggets, Joffrey Lauvergne impressed, Will Barton showed off some serious skills and athleticism and Jusuf Nurkic came up with the […]
The Denver Nuggets are blown out of the building.
At last season’s trade deadline, then-rookie GM Tim Connelly didn’t mix words about where he thought the Nuggets were headed. He boldly proclaimed that his team got better after trading for Jan Vesely and Aaron Brooks, dismissing the notion that the Nuggets were doing anything other than reloading and getting healthy for another immediate playoff push. As we […]
In addition to adding three expiring contracts players from Portland, Denver agreed to terms with 2013 draft pick Joffrey Lauvergne today. Denver closes out deadline day with roughly the same draft picks as they started (swapping OKC’s future first rounder for Portland’s) and significantly more salary flexibility for this offseason. It remains to be seen if […]
Shortly after unloading Arron Afflalo for a first and a second, the Nuggets have used their OKC pick to send JaVale McGee to the Philadelphia 76ers, per Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. Denver has agreed to send JaVale McGee to Philadelphia, along with a first-round pick via OKC, league source tells Yahoo Sports. — Adrian […]
After trailing by as many 22 in the third quarter, the Nuggets used a big fourth quarter surge to lose to the Detroit Pistons by just 10. Ty Lawson led the way with 20 and 9, but everyone else was pretty miserable. With the loss the Nuggets completed an 0-3 road trip against teams that […]
The Nuggets finally play a decent game and suffer a routine, acceptable loss to the Boston Celtics. It’s the same result, but a massive improvement compared to what we saw over the past week.
If I told you that a team finished first in their division for four straight years, had numerous impressive playoff wins during that stretch, even advancing to that sports’ championship game once, you would probably assume the likelihood of that team’s coach having long-term security is pretty strong? Now, if I told you that a […]
The 76ers are tanking and playing their fourth game in five nights, but had no problem dismantling the hapless Nuggets tonight. For the Denver Nuggets, it was just another day — a third consecutive blowout loss and perhaps the most demoralizing of them all. Sam Hinkie, the architect of the current 76ers, has drawn the […]
The Nuggets continued their road trip in Memphis tonight after snapping a 7-game losing streak in New Orleans last night. It was an embarrassing first quarter as the Grizzlies took a 26-11 lead and it never got any better. Z-Bo and Marc Gasol controlled the paint front the opening tip and Denver never looked comfortable offensively in a […]
The streak is over. The Nuggets continued a series of solid efforts and were finally able to finish a game for a 93-85 win in New Orleans. Denver was unusually solid defensively, holding the Pelicans to just 40.9% eFG. The Nuggets racked up 30 assists and smashed the Pelicans in bench scoring 30-16. All of […]
