Despite an entertaining and energetic game through 3 quarters, another poor shooting performance doomed the Nuggets to a 110-96 loss to the Phoenix Suns. However, in a season where losses are wins for the Denver Nuggets, Joffrey Lauvergne impressed, Will Barton showed off some serious skills and athleticism and Jusuf Nurkic came up with the […]
That’s what I like to call a vintage Pepsi Center win, wherein the Nuggets hit their stride with an early run then ride their depth to a blowout victory. Led by Arron Afflalo’s 22 points, the Nuggets beat Phoenix 122-97 for their fourth straight home win.
After a promising start, the Nuggets came out flat in the third quarter and played catch-up the rest of the way. Gerald Green dominated, the Nuggets were roughed up on the interior and ultimately ran out of gas.
The Denver Nuggets clinched the three seed after smashing the Suns by 20 points in their final home game of the year. The sun sets on a historic regular season as the Nuggets now await their first round playoff opponent, either Houston or Golden State. UPDATE: The Nuggets will face the Golden State Warriors in […]
Earlier today the Nuggets announced the 13 players Chad Iske will coach in the Las Vegas summer league next week. Nuggets fans should be pleased to know that every one of Denver’s draft picks from the last two seasons will be in attendance, only further proving that Masai and Josh are building an organization that […]

Tonight the Nuggets notched their first win in Phoenix since 2004, and for George Karl it was his first win in the desert since 1997. Whatever has kept the Nuggets from winning in the US Airway Center in years past certainly was not preset this evening as the Nuggets took it to the Suns from […]
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!
Box Score | Highlights As they did against the LA Clippers last Wednesday, the Nuggets entered tonight’s contest with a healthy starting five and a full roster of players available. It’s a roster they hoped would take them back to the brink of a Finals appearance and convince Carmelo Anthony to reconsider staying in Denver […]
When LeBron James and Chris Bosh agreed to join forces with Dwyane Wade in Miami one of the big questions, aside from how many games over 72 they would win, was whether or not having LeBron and Wade on the same team with a third all-star in tow was good for the NBA. It certainly […]
Box Score | Highlights The Denver Nuggets appeared to catch a bit of a break as they prepared to take on the Phoenix Suns. Despite the fact Denver had lost 11 straight games in Phoenix, the Suns were coming off a hard fought game against the Los Angeles Lakers the night before during which they […]
Box Score | Highlights | Daily Dime Chat Valley of the Suns | Bright Side of the Sun That was painful to watch. With a division title on the line it was stunning at how the Nuggets failed to compete. I know Denver was playing their fifth game in five nights, but for anyone who […]
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 […]
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 […]
Box Score | Highlights I owe a big thank you to one of my least favorite shows, The Bachelor. When my wife found out it was the final episode of the ridiculously hokey show where we find evidence that no matter what the last man on earth is like, he will clearly have his choice […]
The Denver Nuggets played tremendous half court defense against the Phoenix Suns in their 105-99 victory at the Pepsi Center. Below is what was originally supposed to be a few clips that turned into a mass quantity of clips documenting the Nuggets’ successful implementation of their switching scheme. A couple of things I forgot to […]
Box Score | Highlights For a big picture breakdown of last night’s game click here and go to item number two. I will post some additional nuggets with the game stats later this afternoon. – Finally Updated – Additional Game 71 Nuggets For some reason the Nuggets had a terrible time trying to cover Grant […]
Once again the Denver Nuggets have to prove it. I consider a prove it game to be a pivotal game against a good team where you need to prove that you are as good as you want people to think you are. Denver has not done too well in “prove it games” this season. Prove it […]
Box Score | Highlights For me the Denver Nuggets’ victory last night against the Phoenix Suns made the entire homestand. The Loss to the Pistons still irks me like a tiny pointy rock in my shoe, but I honestly went into the game against the Suns expecting a loss. It was not only the fact […]
