2010-11 Game 75: Denver Nuggets 99, Sacramento Kings 90

In Arron Afflalo’s first game since coming back from re-aggravating his hamstring injury, the Denver Nuggets withstood a scrappy effort from the soon-to-be Anaheim Kings to once again win by a comfortable margin.  

2010-11 Game 72: Denver Nuggets 115 San Antonio Spurs 112

Box Score | Highlights When you think of the Spurs, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Nuggets fans might be tempted to say flopping or a number of other four-letter words first, but when you really examine it beyond that I think of defense and championship team basketball. One of the untold stories […]

2010-11 Game 70 Recap: Denver Nuggets 98 Miami Heat 103

Box Score | Highlights There are certain games at certain times of every season that I get a funny feeling about and just dread having to watch. In the past, it was the predictable slumps and offensive hell the Melo-era Nuggets so often fell into during big-time road games. After losing to Orlando in nothing […]

2010-11 Game 69: Denver Nuggets 82, Orlando Magic 85

Tonight’s game against the Magic was just that: magical. There was magic happening in all corners at Amway Center this evening. The act of disappearing was in full effect as balls that looked to be in people’s hands suddenly were found in the laps of those in the front row. Also illusion was extremely prevalent, […]

2010-11 Game 63: Denver Nuggets 103 – Utah Jazz 101

Box Score | Highlights A win in Energy Solutions Arena is not the cherished prize it used to be.  The Utah Jazz have lost seven straight games at home, something that has not happened since 1982 (according to TNT and my memory of what was said on TNT).  Even so, do not take anything away […]

2010-2011 Game 62: Denver Nuggets 120 Charlotte Bobcats 80

When I sat down tonight to watch the Denver Nuggets take on the Charlotte Bobcats, I certainly did not expect to see the Nuggets pull off the fifth biggest margin of victory in franchise history. But… THAT JUST HAPPENED!

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.

2010-2011 Game 59: Denver Nuggets 89 Boston Celtics 75

Box Score | Highlights There was confusion, miscommunication, a few quizzical glances and some ugly shooting.  There was also effort, passion and a Nuggets team who clearly cared more about winning than anything else.  For years the Nuggets have been all about whether their talent can outweigh that of the opposition.  Now after two games […]

2010-2011 Game 58: Denver Nuggets 120 Memphis Grizzlies 107

Box Score | Highlights The day after trading away their two best players, the Denver Nuggets officially begin the post-Melo era with a walkover victory against the Memphis Grizzlies. They led by double digits throughout most of the game while handily outplaying the Grizz. I wanted to get that out of the way because while […]

The Blame Game: Stan Kroenke’s Money Edition

With Carmelo Anthony’s eventual departure looming over the entire season, Nuggets fans have had nothing but time to point their fingers in dismay. Exactly where did we go wrong with Carmelo and whose fault is it? Despite a payroll annually among the most expensive in the league, many are placing the blame on Stan Kroenke’s […]

2010-2011 Game 57: Denver Nuggets 94 Milwaukee Bucks 87

Box Score | Highlights | Watch Replay Sigh of relief. That’s about all I can say as the Nuggets notch a nice win as a much needed break from the season starts now. I discussed earlier the implications and vastly different scenarios that could come into play over the critical stretch next week when no […]

2010-2011 Game 56: Denver Nuggets 102 Houston Rockets 121

Box Score | Highlights This was a game and effort simply not worth the time it would take you to read about. Long story short, the Nuggets move to 0-2 on their three game road trip in demoralizing fashion at Houston. Since more important matters like the trade deadline loom, I’ll limit this exercise to […]

2010-2011 Game 51 Recap: Denver Nuggets 113 Minnesota Timberwolves 100

Box Score | Highlights Just as the Jazz’s methodical attack showed us the bad habits and weaknesses in this team’s style, you can always count on the discombobulated T-Wolves to bring out the better side of these Nuggets. After losing a gritty battle of wills with Utah, the Nuggets bounce back by getting out of […]

2010-2011 Game 50 Recap: Denver Nuggets 106 Utah Jazz 113

Box Score | Highlights I honestly have nothing bad to say about Denver’s effort tonight. In the preview, I lamented how the Nuggets have refused to show up in big time statement games like tonights. They were so badly embarrassed by the Lakers and Spurs you just have to assume that when things aren’t going […]

2010-2011 Game 48 Recap: Denver Nuggets 99 New Jersey Nets 115

Box Score | Highlights As I write this, the Nuggets are down by 18 in New Jersey and will lose to the Nets by a yet to be determined amount. One thing is sure, and that is that the Nuggets play is so fundamentally poor that it’s hard to make the argument that Denver is […]

2010-2011 Game 43: Denver Nuggets 121 Indiana Pacers 107

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. […]

2010-2011 Game 41: Denver Nuggets 112 Oklahoma City Thunder 107

Box score | Highlights After losing a preferred trading partner for their disgruntled star, the Nuggets won a game against the division leading Oklahoma City Thunder. Under the circumstances, it might have been one of the gutsier team wins of the season against a top notch opponent in what was largely a sloppy game. Judging […]

2010-2011 Game 40: Denver Nuggets 97 San Antonio Spurs 110

Box score | Highlights It’s not terribly surprising the Nuggets lost one of their toughest matchups yet against the league-best San Antonio Spurs. On one hand, you’d have to be happy with a complete effort defensively and a mere sign of improvement on the road in the second game of a back to back. For […]

2010-2011 Game 38 Preview: Miami Heat

Despite a tough loss against the emerging LA Clippers last night, the Miami Heat are still rolling. They’ve won 20 of their last 22 games, including 13 out of 14 road contests – clearly still playing like the best in the league. Under normal circumstances, the Denver Nuggets catch their first meeting against them at […]
