In this edition, I share some notes on the win over the Phoenix Suns on Monday. 1. This was the first chance we’ve gotten to see Jerami Grant play extended minutes alongside…...

“The List” is a brand new series that serves as a companion piece for the “Notebook” episodes of the Locked on Nuggets podcast and the DNVR Nuggets podcast. In this edition, I share some notes on both the win over the Los Angeles Clippers last Thursday and the win over the Portland Trail Blazers last Tuesday. 1. Jerami Grant did…...

No matter who was on the floor in the Nuggets’ preseason opener, you couldn’t take your eyes off Michael Porter Jr. Half of it was the storyline. Porter had of course missed his entire rookie season following two back surgeries that sent the once consensus top-2 recruit’s draft stock tumbling. But Porter also captures your eye for other reasons. He’s…...

Which one? Pretend you’re grading two of Jamal Murray’s toughest postseason buckets like this is the Dunk Contest. One through 10 scale. Please hold up the appropriate number after each clip. First: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ts2lkoG_qkY Second: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mwxTs4OpYPs They’re probably both 10s right? It’s hard to ding these bottle rockets that touched only nylon on the way down. If you’re factoring in stakes,…

Having a short-term memory is an essential quality in any good shooter. Steve Kerr, the NBA’s all-time leader in 3-point percentage, used to scribble the letters “FI” on his sneakers, shorthand for “f*** it.” “If you’re self-conscious as a shooter, you’re doomed,” Kerr explained in Chris Ballard’s excellent book “The Art of a Beautiful Game.” With 1:23 to go in…...

Jamal Murray delivered the dagger with 1:46 to play. As the shot clock was winding down, the Nuggets’ 22-year-old point guard took two dribbles to his left, stepped sideways to create space, got Steven Adams to bite on a pump fake and flicked in a 3. The shot stretched Denver’s lead to double digits and capped what Nuggets coach Michael…...

Jamal Murray is shooting a hair under 38 percent from three this season and last week against the Thunder and Jazz, Murray shot a combined 8-15 from beyond the arc. On the season, Murray is shooting 40 percent from distance on wide-open three-point field goals, the same percentage Klay Thompson is hitting on shots of that same variety. But in…...

A spirited 21-6 run to open the fourth quarter captained by backup point guard Monte Morris had the Nuggets leading the Bucks by four points with 5:36 remaining in regulation after a Trey Lyles lay-in. Thanks to stellar play from its bench, Denver was in position to add a victory over Most Valuable Player candidate Giannis Antetokounmpo and the now 10-3 Bucks…...

All Gary Harris could do when asked about the Nuggets’ defensive progress was shake his head and laugh. Denver’s starting shooting guard needed a moment to find the right words to describe the transformation his team has made....

You don’t have to be Red Auerbach’s niece or Don Nelson’s nephew to know what it looks when an NBA player is “feeling it.” You’ve seen the signs before: When a player hits a couple shots in a row and goes to a place where his rhythm can’t be disrupted. When he pulls the trigger with zero hesitation, capitalizing on…...

It was impossible not to notice DeVaughn Akoon-Purcell, dreadlocks flowing off his powerful 6-foot-5 frame, as he raced downcourt at Summer League. The undrafted 25-year-old who played last season in Denmark entered the Las Vegas showcase as a relatively unknown commodity. Nuggets executives spoke highly of the 6-foot-5 wing in the lead-up to Summer League but he was still a…...

It’s been just over two years since Isaiah Thomas warned general managers and owners around the league that they “better bring out the Brinks truck” if they wanted to secure his services once he hit the free agent market. It was a bold proclamation at the time from the ever-confident Thomas, but one that came with merit. Thomas was coming…
