There’s a tale rooted deep in Nuggets lore that serves as a fitting conclusion to Denver’s dream season, which came to an end Sunday. In 2013, soon after Nuggets president of basketball operations Tim Connelly took over Denver’s front office, he and his staff went out to lunch at a downtown establishment. During the meal, he offered his waiter tickets…...

Just like that, it’s over. The Nuggets’ dream season ended Sunday afternoon at Pepsi Center at the hands of C.J. McCollum. McCollum finished with 37 points, eight rebounds and nine assists as the Trail Blazers won 100-96. The Nuggets got out to a 29-17 lead but in typical Game 7 fashion, Portland worked itself back into the game behind McCollum.…...

The Nuggets’ 119-108 Game 6 loss to the Trail Blazers didn’t end without a few fourth-quarter fireworks. With 6:16 remaining in regulation, Will Barton and Portland guard Seth Curry shoved each other after Zach Collins, who was defending a Nikola Jokic drive a few feet away, flew into Barton’s knee. As officials jumped in to separate the two, Barton raised…

Michael Malone called him the “MVP of the game.” Watching it unfold Thursday, it was hard to believe that as recently as four months ago, Rodney Hood was a middling player on one of the NBA’s worst teams. In February, Cleveland traded him to Portland for Nik Stauskas, a fringe rotation player, Wade Baldwin IV, currently teamless, and a pair…...

Wind and Clark discuss the Nuggets’ loss in Game 6, how Damian Lillard, C.J. McCollum and Rodney Hood were able to find their rhythms, if there will be any fallout from the Will Barton and Seth Curry fourth-quarter dustup and if Denver will make any significant adjustments for Sunday’s Game 7. DON’T FORGET TO SUBSCRIBE! iTunes link | Stitcher Link…

The Nuggets could only hold Damian Lillard down for so long. Lillard looked tired and a bit annoyed at Denver’s pesky defense that focused in on him with great precision over the first five games of the Nuggets and Trail Blazers’ second-round matchup, but Portland’s All-Star point guard channeled those frustrations into his best game of the series Thursday night.…...

Wind gives his three keys to victory for Denver ahead of Thursday’s Game 6 in Portland and also where he thinks Nikola Jokic will rank in the NBA’s top-10 next season. Does he have an outside shot of pushing his way into the top-5 if he can elevate the Nuggets into the Western Conference Finals? DON’T FORGET TO SUBSCRIBE! iTunes…

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,…

Wind and Clark recap the Nuggets’ Game 5 win over the Trail Blazers, Paul Millsap’s impressive playoff run, and the dominance of Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray throughout the series.

How do you begin to grieve after yet another school shooting, especially one that takes place in your own neighborhood? Michael Malone chose to talk about it. “I just wanted to start off with a quick word,” a shaken Malone said unprompted as he began his pregame press conference before the Nuggets’ and Trail Blazers’ Game 5. “I think we’re…...

Juancho Hernangomez hasn’t played a meaningful minute for the Nuggets in the playoffs and hasn’t been a part of Denver’s rotation for months. But Hernangomez still gets his cardio in every night by vaulting from his seat onto the court in celebration each time one of his teammates scores a basket or makes a defensive stop. Game 5 of the…...

In the second quarter, Jamal Murray stood on the right side of the floor and sized up his prey. Murray was cooking by that point, getting all sorts of leaners and runners from awkward angles to go down. Murray jab stepped, rose up and fired a 3 in Damian Lillard’s face. It fell through the net, one of the final…...

Michael Malone was in his office at Pepsi Center reviewing the gameplan for Tuesday night’s pivotal Game 5 against the Portland Trail Blazers when his wife called him and delivered some sobering news. Another school shooting had occurred, this one happening just two minutes from where Malone and his family live in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, and only 25 minutes south…

Michael Malone was joking, but sitting a few feet away from Denver’s coach when he proclaimed that Nikola Jokic may play 48 minutes in the Nuggets’ do-or-die Game 7 against the Spurs, you had to wonder if there was a kernel of truth to his comments. Denver was coming off a Game 6 loss in San Antonio where Jokic was…...

Wind and Clark recap Game 4, if Jamal Murray is outplaying Damian Lillard, how Will Barton helped save Denver’s season and if deep down this series means more to him than he lets on. Also, how Nikola Jokic continues to up his play as the series progresses and why isn’t the Nuggets’ bench playing at the same level that it…

The Nuggets have been a resilient bunch all season and were once again in Portland Sunday where they didn’t show any fatigue after a gut-wrenching four-overtime loss in Game 3, regaining home court advantage in an impressive 116-112 victory over the Trail Blazers. We grade every performance from the Nuggets with our Dynamic Player Rating (DPR), which takes into account 12 different…...
