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 […]

2008-09 Game 68: Denver Nuggets 121 – New Jersey Nets 96

Box Score | Highlights I finally saw some of what I have been looking for from the Denver Nuggets during their 121-96 victory over the New Jersey Nets.  It did not last for long, primarily only in the first quarter, which kind of made it not quite as cool, but it did happen.  The Nuggets […]

2008-09 Game 67: Denver Nuggets 107 – Los Angeles Clippers 94

Box Score | Highlights The Denver Nuggets supplied us with another relatively easy, but uninspiring win.  Denver cashed in on runs in the first and third quarter to cruise to a 107-94 win over the slumping Los Angeles Clippers.  The Nuggets played a very strong first ten minutes and it was good to see them […]

Offday Offerings – Replacing Dahntay?

I cannot believe I did not notice this sooner, but it just donned on me that I did not remember seeing Dahntay Jones play at all against the Thunder last night.  A quick glance at the box score shows that Jones had the DNP Coach’s Decision. Could it be that George Karl has decided to […]

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 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 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 57: Denver Nuggets 76 – Boston Celtics 114

Box Score | Highlights There were three simple differences between the Boston Celtics and Denver Nuggets tonight. One team played all out on both ends of the court for 48 minutes and the other did not. One team played aggressive trap and recover on ball screens and fought through on other screens while the other […]

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 […]

Prepping for the Trade Deadline

The trade deadline is less than three weeks away and the rumors surrounding the Denver Nuggets have seemed to die down a little since the revelation that Denver scuttled a Linas Kleiza for David Lee deal with the Knickerbockers.  While it may be a waste of time to make up trades and debate nonexistent deals […]

2008-09 Game 43: Denver Nuggets 118 – Sacramento Kings 99

Box Score | Highlights Tell me you weren’t freaked out when the Kings were up 34-24 early in the second quarter.  Denver was coming off of a very frustrating loss the day before and they looked flat and disinterested.  I kept thinking to myself that they could not let Houston beat them twice.  I wish […]
