Jamal Murray played through two sports hernias during his rookie season and still didn’t miss a game. So you knew when Murray went down with what looked like a painful ankle injury late in Friday’s fourth quarter, the only way the 21-year-old point guard was going to leave the game would be in a wheelchair. To no one’s surprise, Murray stayed…

The fadeaway Nikola Jokic began toying around with while he was on the mend from a sprained ankle last winter looked like the shot Dirk Nowitzki made famous except for one crucial difference. When Nowitzki went to his signature shot, he jumped off his left foot and raised his right leg into the air as if a string connected it…

It’s around 24 hours before the Denver Nuggets host the Memphis Grizzlies and Torrey Craig locks himself in his downtown Denver apartment, whips out his iPhone and bypasses Twitter and Instagram for an app called Just Play. Just Play, developed in late 2014 by two former Division 1 athletes, is Craig’s study guide for the next night’s opponent. Stocked full…

Eight nuggets for the eight buckets Monte Morris scored in a 105-99 win over the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday. 1. The revamping effort involved thousands of reps, two-a-days and a Spearmint gum wrapper. This summer, Monte Morris reworked his jump shot. Nuggets coaches noticed Morris’ guide hand was causing his shot to spray sideways. Their goal was to minimize its…

Nick Young never stops smiling. That's the first thing you need to know about Swaggy P, the 6-foot-7 wing who the Nuggets signed off the street Monday to provide depth to a rotation that's been ravaged by injuries not even two months into the regular season.

Paul Millsap came to Denver as one of the NBA’s ironmen, playing in 837 of a possible 886 games spanning from his rookie year in Utah to his 11th professional season, when Millsap was selected to his fourth straight All-Star game as an Atlanta Hawk. But with time and age comes wear and tear, and even for some of the…...

The pass was so on point, it caught Malik Beasley off guard. The bloodbath was already on Tuesday when Monte Morris, Beasley’s back court running mate, delivered a dart while falling out of bounds that surprised the player who only half a second earlier was calling for the ball with both hands raised in the air. Beasley hesitated before stroking…

DENVER –  On Saturday in Scottsdale, two teams comprised of the brightest stars of tomorrow representing five major league organizations apiece faced off in the late autumn classic known as the Arizona Fall League Championship Game. Starting at third base and batting second for the East Division Champs, the Salt River Rafters, was a player whose name had been unfamiliar…

Eight nuggets for the amount of times Anthony Davis got to the free throw line in the fourth quarter of a 125-115 loss. 1. Jrue Holliday cut through the Nuggets’ pick and roll coverage like an electric knife through a turkey. With eight minutes to go, Holliday breezed between Mason Plumlee and Jamal Murray, got to the rim and laid…...

Twenty-four hours before Jamal Murray’s 48-point tour de force that led the Nuggets to a 115-107 win over the Celtics, Denver’s starting point guard was on the same hardwood where he’d post his career-high in points Monday evening, rehearsing the exact shots and movements he’d soon perform to perfection against Kyrie Irving. Murray’s dress rehearsal was a precursor to the…

Nine nuggets for every second the result of this game was in doubt. 1. Trap game? Nope, not this year. The Nuggets no longer follow up dramatic wins over the reigning champs with duds against the scrubs. Michael Malone’s ball club came out Tuesday against the Sacramento Kings and made light work of them. Denver led by seven points after…...

Darrell Arthur knew Nikola Jokic was special from the first time he saw the big man run, or better yet, lumber down the court. It was August 2015, and Jameer Nelson had flown his teammates out to Philadelphia on his own dime for “Dig Deep Week,” an informal minicamp where Nuggets players could bond with one another before the season.…...
