Colorado Avalanche lose 4-3 to Vancouver in overtime.
SAN ANTONIO — For the second-straight night, Will Barton found the ball in his hands on the game’s final possession with a chance to give his team the lead. Twenty-four hours earlier against Boston, Barton’s 34-foot heave at the buzzer didn’t draw iron, and Denver fell 111-110 to the Celtics in one of its more emotional defeats of the season. Fast-forward to Tuesday night,…...
SAN ANTONIO — The Denver Nuggets have not won in San Antonio since March 4, 2012. In that game, Ty Lawson finished with a team-high 22 points. Al Harington scored 16 points off Denver’s bench. Richard Jefferson, who logged six minutes Tuesday for the Nuggets, actually started for the Spurs that March night. Denver’s five-year drought in San Antonio continued Tuesday as the…...
DENVER — The Boston Celtics are not only the league’s best defense, they’re also the league’s best third-quarter defense and after a first-half where the Celtics held the Denver Nuggets to 32.7 percent shooting from the field, it looked like more offensive struggles were in store for Denver over the game’s next two quarters. The Nuggets outscored the Celtics 37-24 in…...
Jamal Murray didn't get the start Saturday night—the first time he's come off the bench this season for the Nuggets—but the second-year shooting guard, who's coming into his own as Denver's closer over the past few weeks, did his part in finishing the Dallas Mavericks.
Murray has started all 47 games he's appeared in this season for Denver and is fully healthy for tonight's matchup. The 20-year-old is averaging 16.3 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game. Murray scored a career-high 38 points in the Nuggets' 104-101 win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday.
Nuggets coach Michael Malone fostered a tight-knit relationship with DeMarcus Cousins during his short tenure in Sacramento so when the All-Star big man crumbled to the floor Friday night holding the back of his left foot, the injury hit close to home for the Nuggets' coach.
The Nugget have found success as of late with Mason Plumlee and Jokic playing next to one another and the two had their best night of the season in the Nuggets' win over the Knicks. In the 20 minutes that Plumlee and Jokic shared the floor, Denver outscored New York by 10 points. That duo was the Nuggets' best two-man combination that night. Will Denver stick with that duo versus Dallas?

The Knicks' were Denver's Emergen-C to its cold shooting in a 130-118 Nuggets' victory. Denver shot 60.0 percent from the field, hit 14-28 (50.0 percent) from three-point distance and tallied 36 assists on 48 made baskets. It was the Nuggets' most complete offensive game over the last few weeks.
Gary Harris, who was questionable for tonight's game with a sprained right foot, scored a team-high 23 points, 18 of which came in the first half. Seven Nuggets players scored in double-figures. Trey Lyles chipped in 21 points off the bench on 6-8 shooting and Nikola Jokic tallied 18 points, seven rebounds and 10 assists.
The Colorado Avalanche made it interesting but ultimately fell to the St. Louis Blues in a 3-1 loss.
Gary Harris will play for the Denver Nuggets tonight night against the New York Knicks after going through warmups and getting the go-ahead from team doctors. Harris initially hurt the foot when he stepped on T.J. Warren in the Nuggets' 108-100 win over the Phoenix Suns last Friday but played 37 minutes three nights later in Denver's win over Portland.
In an attempt to jolt his team's offense to life, Nuggets coach Michael Malone switched things up at Wednesday's practice. Instead of getting up and down on the team's designated practice court, Malone decided Denver should get a sweat in on the main floor at Pepsi Center.
Behind a career-high 38 points from Jamal Murray, the Denver Nuggets overcame a poor shooting first half to top the Portland Trail Blazers 104-101.
DENVER – Nine. In a row. The Colorado Avalanche just keep going, establishing an NHL season-high for most consecutive wins, the latest a 3-1 victory over the New York Rangers in front of a sold-out Pepsi Center crowd. Mikko Rantanen’s empty-net goal wrapped up a tense, tight game. “I thought we did a real nice job again, kind of a mirror…...
Nuggets coach Michael Malone tweaked his rotation following Wednesday's loss to the Clippers in Los Angeles by inserting Trey Lyles into the starting lineup for Mason Plumlee. Following Friday's 108-100 loss to the Phoenix Suns at Pepsi Center, it sounds like more changes could be in store after Denver (23-23) fell to .500 for the first time since early November.
