Donovan Mitchell always seems to get up for games against the Nuggets. In Mitchell’s last two dates with Denver prior to tonight, he went for 35 points and then went for 24 points, eight rebounds and five assists. He was even better tonight. Mitchell scored 46 points, tying a career high, as the Jazz topped the Nuggets 118-108, beating Denver…...

The second unit that was on the floor for the Nuggets to end the third quarter was nearly unrecognizable. No Nikola Jokic or Paul Millsap, who were both resting Sunday night in Portland. Denver was also without starting point guard Jamal Murray, who watched Monte Morris and Isaiah Thomas handle the point guard duties for the Nuggets in a black…...

A lot was on the line in the Nuggets’ second-to-last home game of the regular season. In the first part of a weekend doubleheader against the Portland Trail Blazers, they were seeking to lock up home-court advantage in the playoffs, win the Northwest Division for the first time since 2010 and, most significantly, put on a good show for Marlins…...

I’ve been blessed to have a unique look at the Colorado Avalanche the last three years. It seemed like a curse at first because I was the only media member to cover the 48-point Avalanche season from training camp through 82 regular season games. I remember those postgame locker rooms, especially in the second half of the season. This was…...

Michael Malone had never seen one of his teams struggle to shoot the ball as much as the Nuggets had over their last six games. Coming into Denver’s matchup with San Antonio, the Nuggets had shot just 26% from three and was sporting the worst offense in the league over that span. “I’ve never been a part of a team that…...

Facing a must-win game on home ice against a floundering opponent that had just been eliminated from playoff contention 24 hours earlier, it was a familiar face who manned the net when the Avalanche took the ice tonight. Instead of starting Philipp Grubauer, arguably the hottest goaltender in the NHL over the last two weeks and the man responsible for…...

The Golden State Warriors have forced perspective on the Denver Nuggets during their dream season. As well as the Nuggets have played this year, their last three meetings against the back-to-back NBA champions are proof of how far there still is to go. On Jan. 15, Golden State smacked Denver by 31 points. On March 8, it cruised to a…...

Lead by double digits in the first quarter, cruise into halftime with a comfortable lead and then allow the opponent to work themselves back into the game after halftime. There’s been a trend emerging when the Nuggets have hosted two inferior Eastern Conference teams over the last two weeks. The same series of events that unfolded against the Pistons two…...

Superstars are made in all kinds of different ways. Connor McDavid fights the uphill battle to prove he’s actually human (he swears he is which is exactly what a hockey cyborg would say). P.K. Subban had so much personality his original team felt compelled to move on from him. If a superstar plays for the Florida Panthers, is he even…...

The Denver Nuggets have been the NBA’s best team on the second night of back to backs this season. They’re 10-1 in second games within a 48-hour period. In November, the Nuggets clipped the Thunder on the second night of a back to back in Oklahoma City. On Friday, they did the same, coming away with a 115-105 win to…...

The Nuggets don’t typically have to worry about their offense as long as Nikola Jokic is in the lineup. But that hasn’t been the case over Denver’s last three outings, and the Nuggets’ lack of offensive execution continued in Houston. The Rockets pummeled the Nuggets Thursday 112-85. James Harden (38 points on 10-22 shooting, 5-11 from three) navigated a Nuggets’…...

R-E-L-A-X That was Michael Malone’s message to Jamal Murray after his starting point guard had suffered through one of his worst shooting slumps of the season over Denver’s last six games, where the 22-year-old hit just six of 20 triples. Nothing like a little home cooking to cure a cold spell. After a 124-88 drubbing at the hands of the…...

When Colorado went through that mid-season slump, the entire point of it became to turn it around before it got too late in the year. Neither goaltender had stepped up and really played like a starting goaltender after essentially skipping December and January. Then it was as if the switch that had flipped off following Colorado’s win over Florida in…...

The Nuggets held Bojan Bogdanovic to one of his worst shooting performances of the season when Denver and Indiana faced off two weeks ago at Pepsi Center, limiting the forward to just 16 points on 5-12 shooting. But whatever defensive game plan the Nuggets put into action back on March 16 didn’t make its way to Indiana for Sunday’s matinee…...

The Nuggets have already accomplished their No. 1 goal this season: to make the playoffs. And with a postseason berth in their back pocket, Denver is barrelling down at another one of the objectives that it took aim at in the preseason. The Nuggets topped the Knicks Friday 111-93, moving to 49-22 on the season and into a tie with…...

The Nuggets’ bench is rock solid, but in recent weeks, the impact they’ve made has been inconsistent as Denver fiddled with inserting Isaiah Thomas as a regular and Michael Malone pared his rotation down. But in the last few games, Thomas has, save for a first-half stint in Boston, not gotten minutes, and Malone has settled on four reserve contributors:…...

This has been a long, weird year for the Colorado Avalanche. It feels like another lifetime ago but we’ve watched this club put out a top line that at one point had three players on pace for 100-point seasons. We saw a power play so prolific at the start of the season, Lauren Gardner caught Mikko Rantanen off-guard during a…...

After missing the postseason by one game in each of the last two seasons, the Denver Nuggets are playoff bound. Denver clinched a postseason berth Monday night in Boston, topping the Celtics 114-105. The Nuggets moved to 47-22 on the season, eclipsing their 46-win mark from last year. The Nuggets trailed by five points late in the third quarter, but…...

When we talk about how goaltenders are voodoo, this is the stuff we’re talking about. There were no signs of this coming. Following a dominant home win on January 4 against the New York Rangers, Philipp Grubauer started three games in the span of a month, giving up 16 goals (!) in those starts. At that point, Semyon Varlamov had…...

The Nuggets can heat up in an instant. They looked sluggish to start Saturday’s game against the Indiana Pacers and got down by as many as 18 in the second quarter. But as halftime approached, they ripped off a 15-2 run in a 3-minute, 16-second span. That stretch allowed them to claw back into the game, and they defeated the…...
