Seeing Chauncey Billups’ #1 Pistons jersey raised to the rafters was a poignant moment for the Denver Nuggets and their fans. Denver’s native son took Nuggets basketball near the highest of highs in 2009, and the young Nuggets of new are trying to lay a foundation to follow along. Wednesday night’s win was a step […]
Kenneth Faried was a late scratch and after a rough first half, the Nuggets trailed Detroit by nine and it looked like Denver was headed into sub .500 territory on their eight-game homestand. Then, the second half happened and the Nuggets got defense in the game with a furious comeback led by rookies Emmanuel Mudiay […]
In lieu of an in-depth analysis and projection of the Denver Nuggets remaining games, I’ll be projecting the remaining schedules of each of the teams immediately surrounding the Nuggets to give an idea of who should be expecting the most ping pong balls in the May 19th NBA Draft Lottery.
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 […]
Things went from bad to worse for the Denver Nuggets tonight. Not only did they get blown out by the Pistons the night after getting blown out by the Knicks, but injury was added to insult as they lost Ty Lawson late in the second quarter to a lower back strain. He did not return, […]
Detroit Pistons 97 Final Recap | Box Score 109 Denver Nuggets Danilo Gallinari, SF 32 MIN | 3-11 FG | 0-0 FT | 4 REB | 2 AST | 8 PTS | +3 His shot selection could be a lot better since returning from an ankle injury, but it’s just Gallo’s second game back. The […]
How do you build a championship roster? That is a question that General Managers and Presidents of Player Personnel must ask themselves every day. What complicates things is while every team starts every season at 0-0 not every team is created equal. What works in one market is not feasible in another. Add in the […]
It’s been a while since the last — or first, depending on how you look at it — version of Nuggets News graced the front page of Roundball Mining Co. For this we apologize. We know how important it is to keep the Nuggets community as up-to-date as possible on everything concerning its favorite sports […]
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.
For two consecutive games the Denver Nuggets have outscored its opponent by at least 19 points. It’s too bad neither of those teams happened to be the Lakers or Heat, but taking care of business is taking care of business last I checked, no matter who the opponent is.
Tonight the Nuggets notched their first win in Phoenix since 2004, and for George Karl it was his first win in the desert since 1997. Whatever has kept the Nuggets from winning in the US Airway Center in years past certainly was not preset this evening as the Nuggets took it to the Suns from […]
Recap by GoldenNugget Box Score | Highlights Watching the Denver Nuggets and Detroit Pistons go at it tonight, seemed eerily similar to the match we saw Tuesday against the Washington Wizards. Both teams had many highlight plays, pushed the pace and couldn’t figure out how to get a stop if it’s life depended on it. […]
How close is Carmelo Anthony to becoming a member of the New Jersey Nets? Close enough that the Nets and Pistons “were surprised on Sunday night when Denver allowed the players included in the proposed trade to play in a game against the New Orleans Hornets.” That sounds like a deal that is all but […]
You can find thoughts on tonight’s 101-99 loss to the Pistons in the Daily Dime from both Dan Feldman of Piston Powered and myself. Judging from the quote from Chancey in box five under “Quote of the Night” he agrees with the premise of my comments.
Box Score | Highlights The Denver Nuggets just cannot beat the Detroit Pistons. They dropped another winnable game on the road and it is officially time to really start to be concerned about this team. The Pistons started the game off on fire making six of their first eight shots, and they were able to […]
The Denver Nuggets have had a difficult time winning games in a couple of places around the NBA. In recent seasons they broke a long jinx in Sacramento. Last month the Nuggets stopped a long losing streak in Orlando. With that victory against the Magic the Palace in Auburn Hills now fills the role as […]
Don’t look now, but tomorrow’s matchup between the Detroit Pistons and Denver Nuggets might be lacking some star quality. Allen Iverson is likely to miss the game due to back problems and now Benjamin Hochman is reporting that Carmelo Anthony is probably going to be in Denver. Unfortunately, the game is in Detroit. The reason […]
With Carmelo Anthony out for three to four weeks the Denver Nuggets are going to have to pay a little more attention to detail on offense in order to earn good shots. So far they have done a very good job in the first halves of their two games they have played without Melo. However, […]
Box Score | Highlights In my humble little game preview I mentioned that I expected the Denver Nuggets game against the Detroit Pistons would be frustrating. I had no idea how frustrated I would be by the end of the night. The Nuggets followed the same blueprint they used against the Miami Heat. Play a […]
