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 […]

Thrashing the Thunder, Melo vs Durant, Adding Bigs and Some Links

Box Score | Highlights What can we take from the Denver Nuggets 119-90 dismantling of the Oklahoma City Thunder? The Nuggets were certainly due for a breakout game and the Thunder apparently forgot to drink their energy drinks this morning. The Nuggets certainly rediscovered their ability to pass, score in the paint and run the […]

2008-09 Game 79: Denver Nuggets vs Oklahoma City Thunder Live Blog!

I am coming to you from the EconoLodge in Sioux Center, IA in anticipation of a big night for the Denver Nuggets.  The Portland Trail Blazers are playing the San Antonio Spurs right now and the Nuggets play the Thunder later tonight.  It is possible that the Nuggets will clinch the Northwest Division title in […]

2008-09 Game 66: Denver Nuggets 112 – Oklahoma City Thunder 99

Box Score | Highlights It sure was nice to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder in a game that did not require a last second shot for once.  Denver was in control from start to finish, but before we get too carried away with an easy win against a less than stellar squad, let’s take a […]

2008-09 Game 66: Denver Nuggets vs Oklahoma City Thunder Game Thread

Even without Kevin Durant the Thudner are rolling.  Jeff Green is back and Russell Westbrook, Thabo Sefolosha and Nenad Krstic are all playing well.  Even Kyle Weaver is hitting his threes. No Kenyon tonight (as I pointed out he tweaked his back on the first play of the second half against Houston), but Anthony Carter […]

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 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 […]

2008-09 Game 49: Denver Nuggets at Oklahoma City Thunder Game Thread

Do not get your hopes up Nugget fans.  There is no chance that the Oklahoma City Thunder sit their big three tonight.  Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and Jeff Green are all going to play.  I get it, you scoff at the idea that Durant, Green and Westbrook should be considered a formidable big three combo?  […]

2008-09 Game 34: Denver Nuggets 122 – Oklahoma City Thunder 120

Box Score | Highlights Yes, Carmelo Anthony hit an amazing last second shot and the Denver Nuggets overcame another second half double digit deficit to win on the road, but just because it was exciting does not mean it was a good win.  I do not want to see how badly they will lose tonight […]
