2009-10 Game 72: Denver Nuggets 99 – Boston Celtics 113

Box Score | Highlights | ESPN360.com Replay I am done pulling my punches with this team. All year long I have proclaimed them the second best team in the west.

My Annual March “The End is Near” Post

Box Score | Highlights I have no idea where to start after that monstrosity. The combination of horrific defense, staggeringly gruesome offense, conspiracy theory inducing end of game officiating and Anthony Carter was mind numbingly stupefying. Let’s get the officiating issue out of the way so we can focus on how dismal the Nuggets were. […]

2009 NBA Playoffs Round 2 Game 1: Denver Nuggets 109 – Dallas Mavericks 95

Box Score | Highlights Once again I simply do not know where to start.  There were so many great storylines for the Denver Nuggets during their game one 109-95 win over the Dallas Mavericks I do not think I can do them all justice. Carmelo was in foul trouble for much of the game, but […]
