2010-11 Game 66: Denver Nuggets 131 – Detroit Pistons 101

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. 

Sixth-Man Jam: A fan’s perspective

A few days ago I received an e-mail from an acquaintance asking me if I’d like to accept his tickets to the Denver Nuggets annual Sixth-Man Jam event. Surprised, but happily willing to jump at the opportunity, I accepted and boy am I glad I did.

Carmelo Anthony Mired in a Slump: Denver Nuggets 98 – Charlotte Bobcats 100

Box Score | Highlights Carmelo Anthony may have only shot 8-21 from the field on Tuesday night against the Charlotte Bobcats, but he actually increased his shooting percentage over his previous eleven games from 36.2% to 36.4%.  I was tempted to concoct a post about how efficient Carmelo had been to start the season until […]

Nuggets 120, Knicks 118…whew, that was a close one!

Box Score | HoopData.com Game Stats | Highlights I’m going to start off by stating the obvious…there is NO reason this game should have been this close. NONE, whatsoever. As this game progressed, the Nuggets slowly began to pull away, taking advantage of bad shot selection and the small-ball lineup both teams were throwing out […]

Nuggets 118, Lakers 112…Denver hands LA first loss

Fresh off the butt-whooping of the decade at Indiana (sorry guys, I’m still not over that one) and, in true Nuggets fashion, Denver returns home just in time for a huge bounce back victory over the formerly undefeated Lakers 118-112 at “The Can”. This was Carmelo Anthony’s night, his 32 point, (on 14-of-25 shooting) 13 […]

Nuggets shoot the lights out in Dallas to beat the Mavs

Question: How do you get revenge against the team you lost to by one point in your own building only three nights ago? Going 13-for-21 from three-point land (judges…), yes, that is an acceptable answer! The Nuggets three-point shooting, coupled with some timely defensive stops and steals down the stretch, propelled them to a 103-92 […]

2010-11 Game 4: Denver Nuggets 101 – Dallas Mavericks 102

HoopData.com Box Score | Highlights There is a reason why I frequently watch games twice before I write anything about them.  I was bound and determined to blast the Nuggets for their shoddy zone offense.  I was going to proclaim the players were completely unprepared to deal with the Mavericks zone defense despite the fact the […]
