Nuggets-Jazz Preview

Resurgent defensive play has been the difference for the Utah Jazz of late, as they've won back-to-back games since last week's sloppy performance against the Denver Nuggets. The Jazz can exact some revenge Wednesday night as they try to salvage a four-game series split with the visiting Nuggets. Utah (33-41) ranks as the NBA's stingiest team with 94.9 points allowed per game, and...

Nuggets-Trail Blazers Preview

The Portland Trail Blazers have put together back-to-back wins, but their play at times has brought reminders of the issues that led to the losing streak that preceded those victories. Another matchup with the Denver Nuggets could bring out their best. The Blazers look to win an eighth consecutive meeting with the visiting Nuggets on Saturday night. Portland (46-25) ended a season...

Jusuf Nurkic did something truly touching for a group of Special Olympic athletes

Athletes are used to giving autographs, but Jusuf Nurkic turned the tables in a heartwarming gesture. The Nuggets center joined teammates on Thursday in giving some basketball lessons on dribbling, shooting and other skills to a group of 150 Special Olympic athletes. Nurkic took things a step further afterward, though, when he asked some of the guests to give him their autograph...

Nuggets need some shooters this off-season

Interim head coach Melvin Hunt has done a hell of job making the Denver Nuggets watchable again, but for all his efforts, this team is still capable of throwing up stinkers like Wednesday night’s 99-85 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers. How, after blowing out the Orlando Magic on the road and hanging tough against playoff teams like the Houston Rockets and Miami Heat, can the Nuggets...

Denver Nuggets: The race for worst

The NBA draft lottery puts teams in the association in a precarious spot when the season is winding down to its end. There are the the roughly 20 to 21 teams that are trying to make it into the post season. That is the way many fans like to see their teams working, clawing at every scrap of possibility to make it into the playoffs. But that leaves about 9 teams that are for sure...

Nuggets lose to Philadelphia again

In a sloppy and turnover-filled affair Wednesday, the Denver Nuggets dropped the final game 99-85 in their season series against the Philadelphia 76ers. The loss means that the now 18-54 76ers have swept the 27-45 Nuggets this season. And boy, the way the Nuggets played Wednesday was just the icing on the cake of that little factoid. Nuggets have been swatted three times inside...

Nuggets podcast: Looking at the head coaching search

In the latest edition of the Nuggets podcast, we cover Denver’s recent upswing, Danilo Gallinari’s continued recovery (though we just missed his 40-point explosion), and ask plenty of questions – should the Nuggets be resting their starters?

76ers-Nuggets Preview

Fresh off experiencing his first extended road trip as interim coach of the Denver Nuggets, Melvin Hunt couldn't help from smiling when discussing the comforts of home. That shouldn't come as much of a surprise given that Hunt has won four of the five games he's coached at Pepsi Center. Denver seeks a fourth consecutive home victory Wednesday night when it faces a Philadelphia 76ers...

Danilo Gallinari’s best highlights of his career-high 40 points against Magic

I thought Danilo Gallinari had the potential to be a 20-point-per-game scorer in the league. He’s been riddled with injuries the last few years in Denver and we missed his scoring prowess over that time. Against Orlando, though, he went for 40 points: It was a career night for Gallinari. He went 12 for 21 (including six three-pointers) from the field and missed only one of his...

What Classifies as a Quitter in the World of Sports?

I have been hearing the “Q” word allot lately in sports. A few weeks ago head coach of the Denver Nuggets Brian Shaw was fired from the team after managing just a 20-39 season record this season. This comes after just two seasons under Shaw, in which he took over for George Karl a long tenured respected coach around the NBA who led the Nuggets to 57-25 and coach of the year honors...

Gallinari goes off in Nuggets win

Danilo Gallinari had a career-high 40 points as the Nuggets ran away from the Orlando Magic to snap a three-game losing streak with a 119-100 win Sunday. Jameer Nelson added 15 points and five assists in just 17 minutes for Denver against his old squad. Once again, the second quarter was a lob-sided affair, but this time, it was in the Nuggets favor.
