The Denver Nuggets were again without three starters — Jamal Murray (hamstring tightness), Will Barton III (knee), Gary Harris (hip) — as they took on the San Antonio Spurs in their third game of the bubble. A third straight game without three of the team’s most important players might have evoked concern. Still, Nuggets fans were mainly concerned with a…...

Good things come to those who wait, and Denver Nuggets fans waited a long, long time for what happened Monday. For Michael Porter Jr., the hero of the 121-113 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder, that wait must have felt like an eternity. Porter Jr. waited patiently to return from a career-threatening back injury during his lone season with the…...

Can you believe it? It’s finally time for another report card after waiting 143 days to see those Denver Nuggets play basketball again. There won’t be a lot of players on the Honor Roll after a 125-105 loss to the Miami Heat in Denver’s re-opener, but the Nuggets have a small runway to work with before they need to take…...

Heading into the NBA’s restart on June 30, the DNVR Nuggets crew is looking back on the Denver Nuggets’ season, where each player left off, a target stat that every player should shoot for, and one half-court heave or bold prediction for everyone on the Nuggets’ roster. Where Gary Harris left off Nikola Jokić is the face of the Denver…...

It is easier to find men who will volunteer to die, than to find those who are willing to endure pain with patience. – Julius Caesar Strangely, the Roman Empire didn’t start out as an empire.

The Denver Nuggets have won 40 games. They’ve played as well against teams with winning records as virtually any contender. They have wins that stand up with the best by any side all season long — like a shorthanded win in Milwaukee on the second night of a back-to-back, or ‘The Seven’ marching through the mountains into Salt Lake City,…...

“JERAMI GRANT HAD FORTY-NINE POINTS TONIGHT!!!” I had just walked in the door, and knew I’d misheard her. I was sure I had something crazy in my ear. I wanted to ask my wife to repeat herself. I somehow encapsulated all of that response into something a little briefer: “HE WHAT????” The “what” had landed in a register I thought the…...

Is Gary Harris beginning to emerge from a season-long offensive slump? Monte Morris thinks he is and Michael Malone knows how important Harris' offense will be to Denver's stretch run. A strong two-way game against former teammate Malik Beasley could set him on the right track.

It was somewhat of a predictable bounce back performance. After an embarrassing loss Saturday at home to the lowly Cavs, the Nuggets looked like a different team 24 hours later against the playoff-bound Clippers. Denver hit its 3s, the Nuggets out-rebounded their opponent, and their defense locked in for key stretches across the second half. It resulted in a 114-104…...

It took just three and a half minutes for the threat of Nikola Jokic’s three-point shot to bend the Clippers’ defense. Early in the first quarter of the Nuggets’ 114-104 win over the Clippers, Jokic recieved a pass on the right wing from Jamal Murray and slowly went into his shooting motion as Ivica Zubac ran out to contest him…...

Did anyone have flashbacks to last May and the Nuggets and Trail Blazers’ Western Conference semifinal matchup while watching the Pelicans bully the Nuggets on national TV in Denver’s first Christmas Day game since 2012? In that playoff series, CJ McCollum and Damian Lillard poured in 26.4 and 25.1 points per piece across seven games. But it was what the…...

“The List” is a brand new series that serves as a companion piece for the “Notebook” episodes of the Locked on Nuggets podcast and the DNVR Nuggets podcast.

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…...

Jamal Murray clapped. Assistant coach Wes Unseld Jr. took a few steps onto the court to congratulate his players. Torrey Craig rose from his spot on the Nuggets’ bench and let out a scream. The Nuggets weren’t celebrating a Jamal Murray 3-pointer, a magical Nikola Jokic assist, or a Will Barton basket. Denver was rejoicing over its first highlight play…...

Six possessions, six baskets. Scoring hadn’t come this easy to the Nuggets in what seemed like weeks. The ball moved swiftly from side-to-side, and Denver got up the floor and into its offense with a purpose, playing with a tempo and pace that had only seen the light of day in small spurts to open the 2019-20 campaign. The Nuggets…...

The ball popped, the shots fell, and the Denver Nuggets rolled. At long last, we saw the Nuggets put on a performance that’s better suited for the offensive identity and acumen we’ve bestowed on this group. Denver rocked the Miami Heat, who had the best net rating in the NBA coming into the game, recording 35 assists in the 109-89…...

Nikola Jokic threw his hands up in disgust. In the moment, the Nuggets’ All-Star center’s frustration centered around one sequence — a game-sealing errant Jamal Murray bounce pass intendslowed for Jokic which ended up in the hands of Jahlil Okafor and turned into a Pelicans basket — but Jokic’s annoyance around the Nuggets’ play and particularly Denver’s offense had…...
