SAN ANTONIO — A little more than an hour after the Nuggets fell to the Spurs in Game 3 of their first-round series, Monte Morris arrived back at Denver’s team hotel situated in downtown San Antonio, took out his cell phone and transmitted a few words of encouragement to his starting point guard over the Texas airwaves. “I just told…...

Do you think Derrick White likes playing the Nuggets? The Colorado kid who played his college ball at the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs before transferring to CU-Boulder for his senior year had been the best player through the first two games of the Spurs’ first-round series matchup against White’s hometown Nuggets. That trend continued in Game 3 as White scorched…...

Will Barton heard the boos loud and clear — how could he not have? After misfiring on his sixth 3 of the night, this one bouncing off the side of the backboard, they came from every corner of Pepsi Center. The jeers were directed at Barton, in part because of his offensive struggles in the Nuggets’ 114-105 victory over the…...

An hour after Jamal Murray roared to life in the fourth quarter to lift the Nuggets to an improbable Game 2 victory, he admitted that it wasn’t close to being his hottest shooting night of the season. “Boston, Phoenix, Sacramento,” Murray said, talking through a grin that grew wider and wider as one renowned offensive performance after another from the…...

The triple-double dropping, no-look passing, efficient scoring Nikola Jokic is most well-known for his offensive prowess. It’s why after a Game 1 loss to the Spurs where Jokic handed out 14 assists and became the only center other than Wilt Chamberlain to accomplish that feat in a playoff game his 10 points on 4-of-9 shooting drew the ire of some…...

Nikola Jokic stared DeMar DeRozan down as he came over to apply the double-team like an outfielder looks a fly ball into his glove. Jokic dribbled the ball twice with his right hand, surveyed the defense as he put his backside into Jakob Poeltl and like clockwork DeRozan shuffled down the lane to force the ball out of his hands.…...

Then Barton followed with a driving finger roll, briefly reenergizing a crowd that had gone quiet amidst the Nuggets’ 3-point struggles. But Denver’s basket sealed itself shut…...
