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.
The Nuggets beat the Pacers in blowout fashion for their first win in over 2 weeks. Denver is now 1-0 on a 3 game road swing that will take them to New York and Cleveland next.

[Note: Unfortunately, I couldn’t get the Rapid Reaction generator working, so a regular, old-fashioned recap follows the jump.] The Denver Nuggets came out strong, building a 19-point halftime lead, then weathered Indiana’s third quarter scoring barrage to hang on for one of their biggest wins of the season. In facing a powerhouse with the best […]
ESPNLA’s Ramona Shelburne has reported that “Lionel Hollins will interview with the Denver Nuggets on Saturday, according to a source.” Earlier this week, Benjamin Hochman of the Denver Post reported that the Pacers and the Grizzlies had, respectively, granted the Nuggets permission to talk to Brian Shaw and Hollins in their pursuit to find a […]
With just under three minutes remaining in yesterday’s game against the Pacers, the Nuggets trailed by three. They had just allowed a 7-0 Indiana run which reversed the lead Denver had held earlier in the quarter, and appeared to be on the verge of yet another fourth quarter collapse. That’s when Andre Miller decided to […]

After a valiant effort in which the Nuggets only played seven players for the majority of the night, the Utah Jazz finally pulled away in the waning seconds of the game to win the season finale on it’s home floor.
Box score | Highlights On November 9th, the Nuggets gave up 144 points in a loss to the Pacers after fumbling away a tough game in Chicago the night before. Regardless of fatigue, it was an embarrassing performance in which Indiana dominated throughout and made their first 20 shots in a 54 point third quarter. […]
Box Score | HoopData.com Game Stats | Highlights Which team has a lower defensive efficiency, the two teams full of Melos (who are also coached by Melos) in his new shoe commercial or the Denver Nuggets versus the Indiana Pacers? Prior to tipoff I made the comment to the individual I was sitting next to […]
Box Score | Highlights I only have time for a few thoughts on tonight’s 111-93 win in Indiana against the Pacers. Carmelo looked more like the Melo of old. I think he got caught up a little too much in trying to score on Dahntay Jones and took more difficult shots than he has been […]
After watching the Indiana Pacers roll over the Denver Nuggets in Taipei, I said I had some growing concerns about the mental state of this team. After one quarter against the Pacers in Beijing, I was not feeling any better. The Nuggets gave up their fourth 30 point quarter in 60 minutes against the Pacers […]
There were two things I could not wait to end tonight. One was the 31-6 beating my less than stellar coed softball team endured and the second was the replay of the Denver Nuggets third preseason game against the Indiana Pacers. After watching the Nuggets’ 22 point loss I am reconsidering my stance on demanding […]
You may recall that the Denver Nuggets will be playing the Indiana Pacers in Taipei on October 8. That will not be their only stop in the Orient. The NBA has announced that the same two teams will play in Beijing on October 11. I think everyone expected to have at least one other date […]
The NBA will announce today that the Denver Nuggets will be playing the first ever exhibition game in Taipei on October 8, 2009. The Nuggets will face off against the Indiana Pacers at the Taipei Arena. There are two things that come to mind when I read this release. First of all, from a basketball […]
Box Score | Highlights You always wonder what a vagrant does with the quarter or dollar you give him. Will he use it for food or for some green tea or will he use it for booze and mind altering substances? Imagine a starving panhandler getting $50 bucks, but instead of buying food he spends […]
The Denver Nuggets raised their intensity level against the Los Angeles Lakers. Tonight’s game brings a different type of challenge. Can they play with focus against a lesser team? The Indiana Pacers are playing without their two best players as both Danny Granger and Mike Dunleavy, Jr. are out for the season. Even without their […]
The bad news could have been worse. Fortunately the initial diagnosis on Carmelo Anthony’s hand was accurate last night and surgery will not be required. Although even if you get a little excited that he will only miss three to four weeks you then you get hit with the realization that he is going to […]
Box Score | Highlights You can put all the concerns about giving up leads or the faltering defense on hold. Carmelo Anthony likely has suffered a “nondisplaced fracture on the third right metacarpal of his right hand.” The Nuggets will not know anything more until tomorrow, but when discussing the recovery time George Karl said, “I […]
