Odds & Ends – Game 71 and Knicks Podcast Appearence

First off, my apologies for no recap last night as my internet service is currently being difficult. As many of you guys already saw last night, the Nuggets demolished Toronto in such a way that 90% of the game was extended garbage time (no joke). It was a solid business-like win Denver needed after dropping […]

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 67: Denver Nuggets 114 New Orleans Hornets 103

Box Score | Highlights Already with an entirely new cast of characters on hand, starting their four game road trip without Arron Afflalo and Danilo Gallinari was not the ideal way for the Nuggets to kick off the most crucial and difficult stretch of season yet. Yet the way we’ve seen this team respond to […]

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 61: Denver Nuggets 100 Atlanta Hawks 90

Box Score | Highlights With the exception of a lethargic fourth quarter against the Blazers, the Nuggets are immediately showing promise in an area we’ve seen them struggle for years – closing games. In tonight’s ten point victory over Atlanta, the Nuggets willed themselves forward with key runs to close out quarters and stifle the […]

2010-2011 Game 60: Denver Nuggets 106 Portland Trail Blazers 107

Box Score | Highlights | Watch Replay It was something the Nuggets haven’t had to worry about in a very long time. With the ball, shot clock turned off and one bucket away from winning the game. If it wasn’t a straight up inbounds to Melo in isolation, it was a failed high pick and […]

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 […]

Carmelo Anthony Trade – Q & A with KnickerBlogger

We were fortunate enough to exchange questions and answers with Mike from the tremendous New York Knicks blog KnickerBlogger.  I asked him some specific questions about the abilities of the four Knicks that came to Denver in the Carmelo Anthony Trade and he provided some great insights.

Analysis and Thoughts on Trading Carmelo Anthony to the New York Knicks

Almost exactly eleven months ago I wrote the following: Frankly, the chances of us seeing Melo take Manhattan are quite slim. Even so, if you’re a Nuggets booster, you might want to pray that a couple of big names take the Knicks’ money this year, just to be safe. Fast forward to February 21, 2011 […]

It’s over – Carmelo Anthony traded to the New York Knicks

Updated: Benjamin Hochman of the Denver Post has broken the story. A trade involving the Knicks and Minnesota Timberwolves has finally been completed. It is a done deal in principle, with minor details to be worked out following a conference call with NBA offices tomorrow. Details are known, but minor parameters such as draft pick […]
