Examining the 2011-12 schedule and Carmelo Anthony’s return to Denver

The 2011-12 NBA schedules were released early Tuesday morning in the event that an NBA season does in fact transpire next year. The Nuggets, as usual, will open up on the road against a heated division rival (Portland) on national TV. Two weeks later, Carmelo Anthony will return to Denver in a non-Nuggets uniform on […]

Nene forces Nuggets to take option of insecurity

Thursday, the deadline for Nene to re-sign with the Denver Nuggets officially expired and no deal was reached. Though Masai Ujiri and the rest of Nuggets’ management feverishly attempted to cajole Nene into guaranteeing his services to the Nuggets organization for another handful of years similar to the deal he struck back in 2006, apparently […]

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 […]

2010-2011 Game 55: Denver Nuggets 108 Memphis Grizzlies 116

Box Score | Highlights I have to admit, after reliving that incredible fourth quarter comeback against Dallas I almost bought back in. It’s been tempting at numerous times this season when the Nuggets occasionally act like the good team they think they are. Even through the first half of this game I thought it was […]

Nuggets 108, Grizzlies 107: Afflalo, Nene carry Nuggets to seventh straight win

Somehow, the boys in powder blue and gold keep on doing it; “it” being finding a way to win, in this case for a seventh straight time. Thanks to Aaron Afflalo’s career-high 25 points on 10-for-14 shooting and a gigantic 27 and 11 from Nene the Nuggets were able to hold onto a lead that […]

The Denver Nuggets Take Care of the Memphis Grizzlies, the Phoenix Suns Await

The Denver Nuggets 123-101 blowout win over the Memphis Grizzlies had a kind of preseason feel to it. It was Kenyon Martin’s second game back from injury and he is still working his way into shape (although he needed the practice, I was relieved we did not have to watch him try to shoot free throws […]

Fight or Flight

We are close enough to the end of the season to start projecting what might happen with some level of certainty. Honestly, I have no idea what order Dallas, Utah and Phoenix will finish in or how the bottom three spots will be sorted among Oklahoma City, Portland and San Antonio. I do believe two […]

2008-09 Game 69: Denver Nuggets 111 – Memphis Grizzlies 109

Box Score | Highlights The Denver Nuggets 111-109 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies was a perfect example of the difference between playing hard and playing with focus.  From the opening tip the Nuggets played hard.  They understood the importance of this game and they wanted to win.  But their hard work returned poor results because […]

2008-09 Game 69: Denver Nuggets at Memphis Grizzlies Game Thread

The Denver Nuggets have righted the ship at home, but their last road game was the debacle in Sacramento and they still have a five game road losing streak to teams with records under .500 (Sacramento, Indiana, Milwaukee, Chicago and New Jersey). They had better turn that around tonight in Memphis.  Look for Kenyon to […]

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 45: Denver Nuggets at Memphis Grizzlies Game Thread

The Memphis Grizzlies are in the midst of a league worst nine game losing streak.  Even the Washington Wizards only have a three game losing streak.  They will have their third head coach in their last four games as Johnny Davis filled in for two games while newly hired head coach Lionel Hollins could psyche […]
