The Denver Nuggets were looking to extend their 9 game win streak to 10 if they could have beaten the Boston Celtics. It didn’t happen. The Nuggets have played some mighty fine basketball lately, They were on a run and winning game after game, they got to 9 wins in a row and were looking to get their latest win streak to double digits. They fell short of that with a 118-114 loss to the Boston Celtics in a game at the Garden a place that the Celtics have stopped plenty of NBA teams cold in their tracks at over the years. The Nuggets gave Boston all they could deal with in this game. Ty Lawson played lights out in the Garden scoring 29 points and he also had 6 rebounds and 9 assists. Lawson was doing what he could to get the Nuggets to 10 in a row, he just needed a little more help trying to stop the Celtics defensively. Danilo Gallinari scored and had 10 rebounds and 3 assists. The Nuggets also got 40 points from their bench tonight too. If the Nuggets defense could have just slowed ...

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...
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...
8 a.m. ET: No team in the NBA is hotter than the Denver Nuggets — not even the guys from Boston, who are on a six-game winning streak.
After lurching through a road-heavy schedule to begin the season, the Nuggets (32-18) are on fire. They have lost just three games since Jan. 1, going 15-3 in that span, including their current eight-game win streak. Before that they had a six...
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...
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...
THAT WAS A DAMN BAR FIGHT! After an atrocious reversal by the referees that led to Ty Lawson sending the game to overtime, this game went into a full-fledged bar fight. It was sloppy, it was gritty, it was big shot after big shot, but eventually the Celtics outlasted the Nuggets, 118-114. So much to talk about, let’s get right into it.
The Green: First, Jason Terry was looking...
