The Denver Nuggets opened their season Oct. 18 in a road game against the Utah Jazz. Denver was cruising along on opening night — at least until the fourth quarter. The Jazz, who trailed by as many as 15 in the game, pounded Denver 28-13 in the final 12 minutes and went on to win 106-96. Nuggets fans didn’t know...

The Denver Nuggets had an excellent opportunity to start off a seven-game road trip on the right note. Denver rolled into Memphis on Saturday to face the Grizzlies, a tanking team that’d lost 19 games in a row. The Nuggets needed to take care of business against one of the NBA’s worst teams. Instead, it suffered another crippling setback in…...

Here’s how every Nuggets played fared in the win over the Pistons. *Our game grades are dictated by…...

DENVER — Jamal Murray was having trouble sticking with a celebration in the second half Thursday. In the third quarter of the Denver Nuggets’ 120-113 win over the Detroit Pistons, Murray went with the one the Pepsi Center crowd was most accustomed to seeing. Murray drilled a three-pointer in transition, pretended to pull an arrow out of his quiver then…...

It was just a random third-quarter possession in a game that was already over, but Blake Griffin went through it with all the enthusiasm of Michael Scott being forced to interact with Toby Flenderson. The Utah Jazz, who led the Detroit Pistons by 26 at the time, were whipping the basketball all over the floor. Griffin barely even bothered to…...

DENVER — Nikola Jokic nearly tied Willie Cauley-Stein into a knot with a flurry of fakes and spins. The Nuggets’ star center hit Cauley-Stein with a jab step, a spin and then an up and under. Cauley-Stein was doing everything he could to stay with Jokic, whose moves also attracted the attention of Kings guard De’Aaron Fox. When it appeared…...

The Denver Nuggets were in desperate need of a bucket with a little less than five minutes remaining in Friday’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers. Denver, which had already blown a game to a lottery-bound team earlier in the week, trailed the Lakers by a point. It couldn’t afford to fall to sub-.500 team twice in four days in…...

The last time the Denver Nuggets faced the Los Angeles Lakers, the game ended with some bruised feelings. On Dec. 2, Denver defeated Los Angeles 115-100. As the final seconds ticked off the clock, Jamal Murray dribbled the basketball around Lonzo Ball, who wasn’t paying attention. Lakers big man Julius Randle wasn’t happy about the display of showboating. He fouled…...

DALLAS — Nikola Jokic watched from the bench as the final seconds of a deflating 118-107 loss to the Dallas Mavericks ticked away on Tuesday at American Airlines Center. Jokic was seated near the end of the row of chairs. He wore his blue warmup top. A white towel was draped over his shoulders. Denver’s star center didn’t play at…...

DALLAS — On Monday, Nuggets coach Michael Malone was asked about his team’s recent success on the road. After going 7-19 away from Pepsi Center to start the season, Denver ripped off four straight wins. “Now we’re just a team that is on fire on the road,” Malone said. The sarcasm was dripping in his voice when he said it.…...

DALLAS — Before Denver took on the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday, Nuggets coach Michael Malone implored his star center Nikola Jokic to be more aggressive. Jokic shot the ball a combined 10 times in Paul Millsap’s first two games back after recovering from wrist surgery. Jokic got up only eight field-goal attempts in Denver’s 126-117 win Saturday, but Malone said…...

DALLAS — When Paul Millsap returned last week from a wrist injury that sidelined him for 44 games, Trey Lyles knew his minutes were going to get slashed. Lyles was playing the best basketball of his career in Millsap’s absence, averaging 13.0 points in 24.6 minutes per game. But the 22-year-old was wise enough to understand that as good as…...

The Denver Nuggets were in danger of suffering their worst loss of the season Friday against the Memphis Grizzlies, which is saying something considering some of their previous defeats. On Jan. 6, they committed 26 turnovers and fell to the lowly Sacramento Kings on the road. Four days later, they lost to the Atlanta Hawks at home. On Tuesday, they…...
