2008-09 Game 65: Denver Nuggets 95 – Houston Rockets 97

Box Score | Highlights I am not here to make excuses for the Denver Nuggets.  However, knowing the Nuggets were playing their fourth game in five nights against a hot team made victory in this game a long shot.  I think many of the mistakes the Nuggets made tonight were a result of fatigue. When […]

2008-09 Game 62: Denver Nuggets 106 – Portland Trail Blazers 90

Box Score | Highlights Sure the Denver Nuggets beat the Portland Trail Blazers, but the real story was the homecoming of local boy and Denver hero Michael Ruffin.  What, you guys care more about beating the Blazers than the return of Ruffin?  Well, OK then. Hopefully we will look at tonight’s game as the return […]

2008-09 Game 61: Denver Nuggets 95 – Detroit Pistons 100

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 […]

2008-09 Game 61: Denver Nuggets at Detroit Pistons Game Thread

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 […]

2008-09 Game 60: Denver Nuggets 94 – Indiana Pacers 100

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 […]

2008-09 Game 59: Denver Nuggets 90 – Los Angeles Lakers 79

Box Score | Highlights Will you all forgive me?  As I am sure most of you know I said repeatedly that the Denver Nuggets had no chance to win this game.  Turns out they had a slight chance.  The only person I did see who said that the Nuggets would win this game was Nate […]

2008-09 Game 56: Denver Nuggets 117 – Milwaukee Bucks 120

Box Score | Highlights I do not understand how this team’s collective mind works.  Coming off a loss to an inferior team and playing another inferior team they play brain dead basketball and drop a very winnable game.  How can a team play three straight games of great defense and then come out and play […]

Offday Offerings – Was Standing Pat a Mistake?

I have yet to really put anything together about the trade deadline and that sucks because, well, it has passed.  The consensus amongst fans, commentators and the Nuggets front office was that Denver is playing well and should stand pat.  That is exactly what they did.  I only have two questions.  First, is this team […]

2008-09 Game 54: Denver Nuggets 101 – Philadelphia 76ers 89

Box Score | Highlights In their first game coming out of the All-Star break the Denver Nuggets failed to show up for the first seven minutes of the game, then once they decided to start playing they still appeared to sleep walk through the rest of the first half.  Lucky for them the way they […]

2008-09 Game 53: Denver Nuggets at Orlando Magic Game Thread

The big story heading into tonight’s game is how the Denver Nuggets have not won in Orlando since I was a senior in high school.  By the way, I am old. March 10, 1992 was the last time the Nuggets left the floor in Orlando victorious.  It took what was probably a career night from Mark […]

2008-09 Game 52: Denver Nuggets 99 – Miami Heat 82

Box Score | Highlights Between the Nuggets expected third quarter swoon and the performance of Dwyane Wade Superstar this game provided some shaky moments, but thanks to the way Denver started and closed this game it ended up being a safe victory.  It was Denver’s eighth straight win against the Heat.  I think we all […]

2008-09 Game 49: Denver Nuggets 114 – Oklahoma City Thunder 113

Box Score | Highlights I am not sure if I should look forward to playing Oklahoma City or not.  On one hand, the nip and tuck nature of these two games has been completely draining.  On the other the sweet thrill of victory puts a hop in my step and a song in my heart […]
