The Wizards never seem to make it easy for us folks. A 16-point lead was nearly squandered after the Nuggets opened up the final period outscoring the Wizards 25-12. The game seemed to be moving at a very comfortable pace after the Wizards went lockdown on defense, holding the Nuggets to only 14 points in the 3rd after scoring 64 in the first half. The Nuggets avenged their poor start of the second half with a 35 point 4th quarter rally, but John Wall put the clamps on a Denver comeback with a few clutch jumpers -- yes, jumpers -- that sealed a much needed victory for the Wizards.
The Wizards were well aware of Denver's knack for high-scoring affairs but still managed to allow Denver to score with relative ease in the first half. Fortunately, the Wizards were also shooting lights out at nearly 55%, which helped them maintain the lead for nearly the en...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
The Denver Nuggets are a mediocre team with mediocre players with a mediocre coach and a mediocre mascot that gets his shot blocked. This mediocre team lost to the Washington Wizards. Again. Thus, it’s time to blow up the Nuggets roster. Who cares if they are situated in the 5th seed and are trying to [...]The post Time To Blow Up The Denver Nuggets. Am I Doing This Right? appeared...
The Denver Nuggets had a nice “comeback” win against the Charlotte Bobcats Saturday night, which including a multitude of dunks from JaVale McGee and in particular NBA.com highlighted Andre Iguodala passing to JaVale McGee for a nice throwdown. Unfortunately, they confused McGee for….another Iguodala. Who knew Denver had two Iguodala’s on the same team; [...]The post...

Nuggets Projected Starting Lineup
Since John Wall's return to the Wizards lineup, the team has gained the confidence needed to turn their season around--a season that a few weeks ago was the biggest laughing stock of the league. Laden with first round draft choices and overpaid vets, the Wizards seemed a lost cause with no potential to grow.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Ty Lawson has set a goal for the Denver Nuggets as they close the regular season: eighteen wins.
Denver took a step in the right direction Saturday night, pulling away from the Charlotte Bobcats in the fourth quarter for a 113-99 win that snapped a four-game road losing streak.
Lawson had a team-high 20 points, marking the 13th time in 19 games he's...
The Nuggets were never close to making a trade.
The Wizards somehow managed to survive a bombardment of 3-point shots by the Houston Rockets last night, thanks to some halftime adjustments by coach Wittman. These adjustments allowed the Wizards to refrain from getting sucked inside and remain spread out on the perimeter to contest the Rockets' relentless attack from beyond the arc. The Rockets ultimately managed to attempt...

It's so fun to watch Biz get better with every game. 9 points, 9 rebounds and 2 blocks tonight. Our Rookies? Gilchrist with 12 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assits and 1 block.
