The Denver Nuggets first half against the Orlando Magic Tuesday night was proceeding like clockwork. Denver raced out to a 47-40 halftime lead, forced 13 Magic turnovers and managed to go 4-9 from 3-point land. The clouds were clearing and the sun was beginning to shine through as Denver held Orlando to a paltry 39.5 percent shooting and somehow shutout Orlando on the…...

If one second-half collapse is a topic of conversation and two third quarter no-shows is a legitimate concern, what’s happening to the Denver Nuggets after halftime is now a glaring conundrum. Denver scored just 27 points in the second half and just 11 points in the fourth quarter on their way to a 85-74 loss at the hands of the…...

Sitting at 8-13, the Denver Nuggets are about where we expected them to be roughly a quarter of the way through the NBA season. They sport a bottom five net rating and offensive rating and a bottom six defensive rating while playing, depending on where you look, a top-10 strength of schedule so far. Michael Malone has been frustrated with his…...

Danilo Gallinari popped up on the injury report for the Denver Nuggets earlier today before the Philadelphia 76ers game with a “left knee strain,” yet still played 39 minutes, scored 24 points and looked 100 percent healthy in Denver’s 108-105 victory. However, Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post is reporting that Gallinari in fact has a deep bone bruise in…...

The Nuggets brought a mentality and aggressiveness we haven’t seen often this year to Toronto tonight as they hoped to end a season long eight-game losing streak. It was something that was evident in the first half, and Denver did just enough to hold of the Raptors and come out of tonight’s contest victorious 106-105. In the opening two…...

After an encouraging start to the season that saw the Denver Nuggets go 6-5 through their first 11 games, the treacherous part of Denver’s schedule finally hit, and boy did it hit hard. The Nuggets have now lost eight straight and the going doesn’t get any easier tonight as they head to Toronto and take on Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan and the…...

When the San Antonio Spurs announced prior to the game that they were resting starting forward Tim Duncan and guard Manu Ginobili in tonight’s contest at the onset of a three-game-in-four-night stretch, a win to end this four-game losing streak against one of the NBA’s best seemed like a legitimate possibility. However, in the midst of a first quarter that…...

When the Golden State Warriors came into Pepsi Center and trounced the Nuggets for their record-tying 15th straight win to start the season, Denver Nuggets rookie Emmanuel Mudiay took the opportunity against reigning MVP Stephen Curry as just another lesson in the trials and tribulations of rookie season. Mudiay’s learned many lessons already this season, but none may have been more…...

NBA players hate to lose, and with the Nuggets and Clippers both meeting tonight with three game losing streaks on their minds, tensions were running high before tip off. Those tensions boiled over to technical fouls, one on Blake Griffin after he appeared to be jawing with the Nuggets bench; then another technical, this one on Nuggets head coach Michael…...

After the Nuggets 114-107 loss at the hands of the Phoenix Suns last night, rookie point guard Emmanuel Mudiay offered up his thoughts on the game and what his team’s aspirations were for the season. “I really want to make it to the playoffs this year,” Mudiay said after Phoenix’s comeback win last night. “We’re tied for eighth (in the Western…...

The Phoenix Suns came into Denver on a snowy Friday night and literally set the Pepsi Center nets on fire. Brandon Knight, who shook off a sprained ankle in the first half scored a career high 38 points, grabbed 11 rebounds, dished out 6 assists and converted on 6-10 three pointers, while Eric Bledsoe poured in 22 points and Phoenix…...

We might look back at opening night against the Houston Rockets when No. 7 overall pick Emmanuel Mudiay said hello to the NBA with 17 points and 9 assists, and later remark: That was the night we knew.

THE RUNDOWN The fanfare and choruses of boo’s that accompanied former Denver Nuggets guard Ty Lawson as he was introduced as a part of the Houston Rockets starting lineup, and every time he touched the ball on offense, may have gotten to the one-time Denverite who played his first six seasons here.
