We grade every performance from the Nuggets with our Dynamic Player Rating (DPR), which takes into account 12 different statistical factors. Note: for DPRs that…...

With his team on the ropes in the third quarter, their dream season hanging on by a thread, Michael Malone called a timeout to regroup and mount one last charge. The Nuggets trailed by 16 points with a quarter and a half to go, and their head coach could sense hope was fading. “I could see it on some guy’s…...

It got so ugly, the boo birds came out. In a must-win Game 2, the Nuggets fell behind by as many as 19 points. They looked cooked. Jamal Murray, playing about as poorly as possible through three quarters, looked shaken. But in the fourth quarter, Murray came alive, and the Nuggets pulled off an improbable come-from-behind win to even the…...

The triple-double dropping, no-look passing, efficient scoring Nikola Jokic is most well-known for his offensive prowess. It’s why after a Game 1 loss to the Spurs where Jokic handed out 14 assists and became the only center other than Wilt Chamberlain to accomplish that feat in a playoff game his 10 points on 4-of-9 shooting drew the ire of some…...

Nikola Jokic stared DeMar DeRozan down as he came over to apply the double-team like an outfielder looks a fly ball into his glove. Jokic dribbled the ball twice with his right hand, surveyed the defense as he put his backside into Jakob Poeltl and like clockwork DeRozan shuffled down the lane to force the ball out of his hands.…...

After the Nuggets laid enough bricks to build a new Natural Grocers, Nikola Jokic ambled to the interview room, nonchalantly answered questions and when it was over, went all court jester. “My voice sounds funny on this thing,” he said, jiggling the microphone in front of him. “Hahaha.” Meanwhile, his pick-and-roll partner was upstairs getting shots up to try to…...

It was the moment Jamal Murray dreamed about as a young hooper growing up in Kitchener, Ontario. The lights were bright, the crowd was packed, the stage was international. He had finally arrived in the playoffs. His first defensive possession developed exactly to plan. Murray opened the game guarding Spurs’ guard Derrick White and his outstretched left hand poked the…...

For a brief moment, the lid came off Denver’s basket. Will Barton swished a 3 off a kick-out from Nikola Jokic early in the third quarter to trim the Spurs’ lead to five. Then Barton followed with a driving finger roll, briefly reenergizing a crowd that had gone quiet amidst the Nuggets’ 3-point struggles. But Denver’s basket sealed itself shut…...

Tim Connelly is the first to admit that there’s a fair amount of luck that goes into his job. Sure Denver liked Nikola Jokic heading into the 2014 draft and believed his unique skill-set could eventually land the Serbian squarely in the Nuggets rotation. But an All-Star who could very well find his name on the MVP ballot when the…...

Gregg Popovich erupted like a 2 liter filled with Mentos a minute into the Spurs’ final regular-season matchup against the Nuggets on April 3. Popovich, apparently incensed by a non-call against Paul Millsap in the post or perhaps just playing the long game with a Spurs-Nuggets first-round series possibly on the docket, stomped all the way to his team’s own…...

Michael Malone isn’t much of a wine guy, but for one week in Argentina, Gregg Popovich turned Denver’s coach into a sommelier. The setting: The NBA’s Basketball Without Borders camp in Buenos Aires. There, Malone and Popovich met for the first time, drank plenty of high-priced Malbecs and bonded over conversation about Russian history and basketball. The week went so…...
