The NBA Passionista:
The odds were stacked against the Denver Nuggets as they landed in a snow-ravaged Boston early Sunday morning; not only were they on the second-night of back-to-back, but they were in THE Garden, which is one of the toughest arenas in the league, and for most of the game it looked as if Boston would [...]The post Denver Nuggets: Live By Andre Miller, Die By Andre Miller appeared first on The NBA Mistress.

You have learned well George Karl.
What in the world is wrong with sports these days? I swear! If I didn't know better I would think this was the Year of the Rat since so many people are telling on themselves and/or their teammates.
The latest rat to come out of nowhere is Denver Nuggets head coach George Karl. For some stupid reason he thought it was a good idea to come...
Things didn’t start off like the Denver Nuggets had hoped when they took on the Toronto Raptors Tuesday, as Denver was missing two starters, Andre Iguodala and Danilo Gallinari, and a rotation player, Wilson Chandler. Toronto had an early double-digit lead and it only got worse when DeMar DeRozan Blake Griffin’d Timofey Mozgov during the second quarter.The post DeMar DeRozan...
The Denver Nuggets are riding a roller coaster – mainly just an increase in altitude (get it?) – the past two months; going from a 17-15 team to a 33-18 team. A team that’s fighting for the third seed as other Western Conference teams meander from winning; Denver is making strides. Denver has gone 22-6 [...]The post Is It Time To Buy Into the Denver Nuggets? The Survey Says...
We are 10 days away from the February 21 NBA trade deadline and while things seem relatively quiet now, they are sure to pick up in the next couple of days.
This has to be a nerve-racking time for players, coaches, general managers and everybody else involved. Players could have to move to a completely new city at the drop of a hat, and (with the exception of a few players with...
DeMar DeRozan does his best Blake Griffin reenactment on Timofey Mozgov in Tuesday’s matchup vs. the Nuggets and throws a hammer down on the center:
Yes you read the title right. Denver Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried is scheduled to participate in this year’s Dunk Contest. And reportedly it appears he is considering using a bowling ball during the competition. Per Denver Post: “I thought about that, but I haven’t practiced it or anything. I really don’t know if I’m [...]
The Boston Celtics hosted the Denver Nuggets on Saturday night in what ended up being a triple-overtime thriller. The Celtics managed to win the game 118-114 behind Paul Pierce’s 27 points.
While the game was full of highlights, perhaps the best highlight was when the oft vocal Kevin Garnett told Kenneth Faried to “get that sh$t out of her n$%#a”. He yelled it loud enough that...

Poor Timofey Mozgov, first he gets abused by Blake Griffin and earlier tonight, he got banged on by Toronto Raptors forward Demar Derozan.Watch as Demar "derises" in the second quarter of the Raptors/Nuggets game at the Air Canada Center:
BOSTON — Andre Miller, a veteran of 14 seasons and more than a thousand games in the NBA, summed it up best.
“I think everybody played like they wanted to go home,” he said.
Miller and the Nuggets came out on the losing end of a triple-overtime battle on Sunday in the battle of the two hottest teams in the NBA. The Celtics’ survived, extending their win streak to seven games...
