Before you could say “the ball is popping” the Nuggets were out to a double-digit advantage over the Timberwolves. Denver opened Friday’s matchup by draining six of its first seven shots from the field, three of its first four 3s, and led Minnesota 17-7 after just four minutes of action. The Nuggets expanded their lead to 13 after 12 minutes…...

Down by 15 points at halftime and by 19 early in the third quarter, the Nuggets were trending towards one of their more disappointing losses of the season. Paul Millsap had other ideas. Millsap scored seven-straight points beginning at the 9:11 mark of the third and sprung the Nuggets on a 24-0 run over the next six minutes to take…...

Gary Harris is averaging 37.2 minutes per game over the Nuggets’ current three-game winning streak. That’s too many for Michael Malone. “The greatest challenge I have now is I can’t continue to play Gary Harris 38 minutes a night. I really can’t,” Malone said Tuesday. “Sometimes I get caught in the moment. I’m worried about the Knicks. We’ve got to…...

Leading by 20 points in the first half and by 16 at the halftime break, the Nuggets looked to be cruising to an easy victory over the lowly New York Knicks. But then a third quarter transpired that the Nuggets and Michael Malone would like to forget. The Knicks outscored the Nuggets 33-20 in the third quarter and even led…...

Take stock of one moment in particular from the Nuggets’ 114-99 win over the Trail Blazers. With three minutes gone in the second quarter, Carmelo Anthony was isolated on the right wing against Nuggets rookie Michael Porter Jr. Melo crossed the ball from right to left then went between his legs and blew past Porter on his way to an…...

Carmelo Anthony’s best memory from his 7 1/2 year run with the Nuggets? No surprise, it was Denver’s trip to the Western Conference Finals in 2009. But when ‘Melo looks back at his Nuggets’ tenure, it’s not the seven-consecutive playoff appearances or the three 50-plus win seasons that stick out. It’s how those Nuggets teams helped change how the city…...

At the 21-game mark of the 2018-19 season the Nuggets were 14-7. And through 21 games this year, Denver’s record bears the same number of wins and losses. But while last year’s start was filled with optimism, the Nuggets don’t have the same holiday cheer percolating around their team this December. Why is that? With greater expectations comes harsher criticism.…...

It has become routine for the Nuggets to shower Gary Harris with a chorus of “First Team” in the locker room after some of Denver’s most impressive victories this season, championing the two-guard’s legitimate case for a spot on the NBA’s All-Defensive Team. Some of Harris’ individually defensive highlights this season include holding Luka Doncic to 12 points on 3…...

Michael Malone isn’t one for moral victories, but the Nuggets’ 108-95 loss Friday in Boston came with a big silver lining. Nikola Jokic, who’s been mired in the worst offensive slumps of his career, scored a season-high 30 points to go with 10 rebounds, four assists, one steal, and two blocks. Jokic shot an efficient 13 of 21 from the…...

Jamal Murray dribbled around a Nikola Jokic screen and took two hard dribbles with his right hand before riffling a one-handed bounce pass to Denver’s big man barreling towards the basket. For one of the few times in the Nuggets’ 105-96 loss to the Lakers, the Murray-Jokic pick-and-roll surfaced, and late in the fourth quarter a much-needed Jokic floater from…...

Michael Malone recently spent time watching game film from the 2018-19 season….of the Thunder. But it wasn’t in preparation for an upcoming matchup against Oklahoma City. Denver’s coach was in search of more creative ways to feature Jerami Grant on the offensive end of the floor. Grant wasn’t being used to his full potential through the Nuggets’ first several games…...

Last Tuesday, the Avs played their 21st contest of the 2019-2020 season, officially hitting the quarter mark of the campaign. While it might feel like the season just started, the twenty game mark is a bit of a special number. Unlike earlier in the season when good games and bad games can drastically impact overall stats, everything starts to smooth…...

When the Nuggets’ locker room fell quiet last season more often than not it was Isaiah Thomas who did the talking. Even though Thomas didn’t make his Nuggets’ debut until Feb. 13 and would only play in 12 games, his voice was felt throughout Denver’s 2018-19 campaign. His genuine, honest, and sometimes brash leadership style had a significant influence on…...

Gone in 64 seconds, the Torrey Craig story. Craig played just one minutes and four seconds in the Nuggets’ 116-104 win over the Suns. He subbed into the game at the beginning of the second quarter and was replaced by Juancho Hernangomez with 10:56 remaining in the period. Craig ran up and down the floor four times and didn’t break…...

Paul Millsap was seated inside a practice facility on the dreamy campus of San Diego State University last September, surrounded by a small gaggle of reporters and blog boys. Unflinchingly, he proclaimed his goal was to see the Nuggets to a top-five defense in the NBA. The Nuggets, frankly, had struggled to avoid the bottom-five in that regard for the…...

Like a vulture stalking its prey, Torrey Craig slowly closed in on James Harden while the league’s leading scorer turned towards the basket and surveyed the floor. As Craig began to venture further and further away from Russell Westbrook, who he was matched up with this Rockets’ trip down the court and towards Houston’s top offensive option, Harden’s eyes darted…...
