Can these Nuggets give us reason to believe?

I want to believe. I really do. But I need some help. From the front office. I’m still a holdout. I still have not forgiven the Denver Nuggets brass for firing Hall-of-Famer-to-be George Karl. Looking back, I can’t believe there was such a backlash for a first round playoff loss when that Nuggets team, devoid of a single All-Star player, wasn’t even supposed to make the playoffs...

What To Make of the Denver Nuggets

The Denver Nuggets were supposed to be a young team with some questions defensively that wasn’t going to do much this season.

The Nuggets you see are not the Nuggets that will be

At 6-5 and winners of four of their last five games, the Denver Nuggets are starting to turn some heads. A team that Las Vegas picked to win just 26.5 games for the entire year is already nearly a quarter of the way there. Made all the more impressive is the fact that they’re doing so without three players that new head coach Michael Malone expected to be big contributors this...

Denver finds another gold 'Nugget' against Houston

When we last checked in with the Houston Rockets, they had defeated the Los Angeles Clippers in Staples Center. They left the previous weekend with a justifiable sense that — four-game winning streak in tow — they had begun to turn the corner. One weekend later, that notion lies in ruins, as the Rockets — following a humiliating home-court loss to the Brooklyn Nets — dropped...
