The Game 82 sequel was a lot more meh than the original — at least at the start. It took until the end against the Minnesota Timberwolves for the fireworks to flare. The Nuggets played like there were no stakes involved for most of the game but roared back late to close the game on a 15-0 run and beat Minnesota…...

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

Wind and Clark try to recap a wild Tuesday in the NBA, from Magic Johnson’s resignation to Dirk Nowitzki and Dwyane Wade’s final home games, discuss the Nuggets’ loss to the Jazz and Nikola Jokic’s continued struggles against the Rudy Gobert and Derrick Favors frontcourt. Also, why the tune of Denver’s defeat quickly changed 30 minutes after the loss, and…

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…...

With two days left in the 2018-19 regular season, the Nuggets’ first-round playoff opponent remains undecided. What is set in stone is that Denver will be a top-3 seed in the West. The Nuggets will host either the Spurs, Thunder, Clippers or Jazz in the first round. Here’s a quick preview of each potential first-round opponent and one matchup in…...

Gary Harris swears he was a better football than basketball player while starring in both sports at Hamilton Southeastern high school in Fishers, Indiana. He chose basketball, a decision that paid off in a big way when the 24-year-old secured a well-deserved four-year, $84 million extensions with the Nuggets in 2017. But the former wide receiver still puts his football…...

Much like rappers who keep their ears to the ground for the next hot sound, basketball coaches watch games to see what they can repurpose as their own. In 2014, not long after Drake released a remix of Migos’ “Versace” and began incorporating the Atlanta trio’s ratatat flow into his own music, Michael Malone, then in his first and only full…

Wind and Clark recap the Nuggets’ loss to the Trail Blazers, and why Denver won’t be too upset about dropping this game. Are the Nuggets correct in trying to game the standings and avoid Golden State and Houston? Or is Denver angering the Basketball Gods in the process? Finally, thoughts on Gary Harris’ night, Torrey Craig’s continued campaign for 20-plus…

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…...

In the 37th minute of his 78th game, Nikola Jokic took over. The Nuggets had just absorbed a series of body blows against the Trail Blazers on Friday, so to start the fourth quarter, they counterpunched by going to their star center. Jokic dropped in a turnaround hook over Enes Kanter, lined up a straightaway 3 and then drove right…...

The hug lasted only four seconds, but it represented the ups, downs, triumphs and tragedies of the last four years. After speaking with the media for six and a half minutes following the Nuggets’ Northwest Division clinching 119-110 win over the Trail Blazers, Michael Malone made his way out of the main hallway on the ground level of Pepsi Center…...

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…...

Gary Harris was just 20-years-old but the 19th overall pick’s NBA career was already at a crossroads. Harris was coming off a dreadful rookie season where the Michigan State product averaged 13.1 minutes across 55 games. His stat line, which read 3.4 points per game on 30.4 percent shooting from the field and 20.4 percent from three, was historic but…

The Denver Nuggets found their offense again as their unbelievable run on the second game of back-to-backs continued with a convincing 113-85 win over the San Antonio Spurs. We grade every performance from the Nuggets with our Dynamic Player Rating (DPR), which takes into account 12 different statistical factors.

Malik Beasley hasn’t gotten much sleep lately. It hasn’t been Denver’s poor three-point shooting that’s kept the Nuggets’ third-year shooting guard up late into the night. It’s Beasley’s newborn, Makai, who arrived in Denver on March 26 at 20 inches, seven pounds and one ounce. “I’d rather not say,” Beasley joked following the Nuggets’ 113-85 win over the Spurs when…...
