Michael Porter Jr. didn’t feel like playing basketball on Sunday. The news of Kobe Bryant’s death had filtered through the Nuggets locker room only about an hour before Denver was set to take on the Houston Rockets. It left Porter and his teammates devastated. The tragedy was stunning. Bryant, a hero to many on the Nuggets and throughout the league,…...

I’ll never forget the look of shock and disbelief on Jamal Murray’s face. Forty-five minutes before the Nuggets tipped off against the Houston Rockets, he learned that Kobe Bryant was among nine people killed Sunday in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California. Nuggets director of player development John Beckett approached Murray, who didn’t play Sunday but was going through his…

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…...

“The List” is a series that serves as a companion piece for the “Notebook” episodes of the Locked on Nuggets podcast and the DNVR Nuggets podcast. In this edition, I share some notes on the win over the Houston Rockets on Wednesday. 1. Before the game, Denver Nuggets head coach Michael Malone talked about Jamal Murray’s aggressiveness from the three-point…

The changes at the top of the Western Conference that took place this offseason have Torrey Craig dreaming big. “We definitely think a championship could be a possibility,” Craig told DNVR. “Last year we were one shot away, one game away from the Western Conference Finals where we would have matched up with Golden State. Obviously, they don’t have Kevin…...

Wind and Clark break down the Nuggets’ loss to the Rockets, what worked for Denver in the first quarter and how the Nuggets guarded James Harden throughout Thursday evening. Can Denver take anything away from how they held the MVP candidate in check over the first 12 minutes? Also, what’s behind the Nuggets’ uncharacteristic offensive performances over their last three…

The Nuggets don’t typically have to worry about their offense as long as Nikola Jokic is in the lineup. But that hasn’t been the case over Denver’s last three outings, and the Nuggets’ lack of offensive execution continued in Houston. The Rockets pummeled the Nuggets Thursday 112-85. James Harden (38 points on 10-22 shooting, 5-11 from three) navigated a Nuggets’…...

The Nuggets have tried everything imaginable to stop James Harden. They’ve switched, doubled and played him straight up. None of it has worked. Going into Friday’s national TV showdown, they’d lost nine straight games to The Beard and Co. The Nuggets finally found a winning formula Friday, though: shoot so well, playing defense becomes irrelevant. Denver singed the nets on…...

One area the Nuggets excelled in last season was not letting rough patches snowball. Three games was the longest losing skid the 2017-18 Nuggets incurred, a point of pride for head coach Michael Malone....

The last time Nuggets faced the Houston Rockets, which was in late November, James Harden, Chris Paul and Co. carved Denver up like a Thanksgiving turkey.
