It sounds odd doesn’t it? After all, the entire object of the game of basketball is to score more points than the opposing team. And scoring more points invariably means you won the game, which by definition should be the most productive thing that could possibly occur. Right? On its surface that sounds right, but […]
A huge second half surge propels the Nuggets to a 118-108 win in Sacramento. The Nuggets have won two in a row on the road and four straight overall.
Our friends over at Colorado Sports Guys have another expansive chat with Nuggets GM Tim Connelly and it’s a must-listen. Nate Timmons and Jeff Morton asked Tim about the current state of the team, his evaluation process and how that plays into determining the direction for the future. Be sure to check out the podcast, in which […]

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 […]
When I was 20 years old, I was trying to figure out who I was, and what I wanted for my future. I had recently dropped out of college, or more accurately, I had been asked as politely as possible to leave. I was forced to find full time employment, and for the first time […]
Outstanding games from Ty Lawson, Arron Afflalo and especially Jusuf Nurkic, who will no longer be our little secret after tonight. The Memphis Grizzlies looked tired and uninspired the night after a battle with the Lakers in Los Angeles and only Marc Gasol made any sort of impact at all, leading to a dominating 114-85 victory […]
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 […]
There was a point in Tuesday night’s loss to the Los Angeles Lakers that I wondered out loud, i.e. on Twitter, whether Brian Shaw would make it through this weekend as head coach of the Denver Nuggets. It was a statement that received a variety of responses, most of which consisted of a resounding belief that […]
It’s another home loss for the Nuggets as Kobe Bryant’s triple-double lifts the Lakers to a 111-103 victory at Pepsi Center. Nurkic had a career night, but the Nuggets’ starters were embarrassed as the Lakers shot well over 50% the entire night. Denver falls to 13-19 and 9-8 at home.

Unfortunately no recap tonight, but it also wasn’t much of a game. The Nuggets trailed wire-to-wire in a 28-point loss in Charlotte. Ty Lawson was the only starter in double figures for the second game in a row, and he broke a streak of 20 consecutive games with at least 9 assists, finishing with just […]
Late Sunday morning, the Nuggets announced that Danilo Gallinari is out with a right knee meniscal tear. Gallo has spent the better part of two years recovering from multiple ACL surgeries in his left knee. Gallo apparently suffered the injury after scoring a season-high 19 points in 28 minutes in a win over the Pacers. […]
Neither team shot straight in one of the uglier games of the season. After 48 minutes the Nuggets held Indiana to 30.7% shooting and hang on for a 76-73 win. Denver moves to 12-15 and 8-6 at home.
With over a quarter of the 2014-2015 NBA season in the books, we’re ready to give the Denver Nuggets their first progress report of the year. Joining us for an early season 3-on-3 is special guest Aaron Lopez. Although he’s moved on from the Nuggets beat, Aaron covered the team for the Associated Press, Rocky […]
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.
