Wind reacts to Nikola Jokic getting the First Team All-NBA center spot over Joel Embiid and why the Serbian’s playoff performance should put to rest any doubts that he didn’t deserve the honor.

Nikola Jokic’s best argument for the First Team All-NBA selection he secured Thursday as the NBA continued to roll out their end-of-year awards was what had just transpired over the last month. Jokic engaged in a memorable back-and-forth with Joel Embiid for the First Team center spot throughout the regular season. Denver got off to a 9-1 start and raced…...

Tim Connelly often says that he never envisioned becoming a general manager. He scoffs at the idea that someone like him is referred to as the president of anything.

Paul Millsap said the Nuggets’ talented rookie has a lot of “sauce” in his game. Monte Morris called the swingman “special.” Nikola Jokic went as far as to say that Michael Porter Jr. “has a gift.” It won’t be easy for the Nuggets to move on from their 2018-19 season, which ended in disappointment Sunday at the hands of the…...

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…

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.…...
