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…

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,…...

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…

The Portland Trail Blazers have an open invitation from the Nuggets to double-team Nikola Jokic as often as they’d like to in the two team’s second-round playoff series beginning Monday night in Denver. “If they want to double, have at it,” Michael Malone said. “If you watched the San Antonio series closely they stopped doubling him for a reason. He…...

Melodrama. The second-leading scorer on their most successful regular-season team ever shredding his knee two weeks before the playoffs. Waving goodbye to the reigning Executive of the Year. Firing the reigning Coach of the Year. Following along on social media as their star player smoked hookah and declared his days in Denver were numbered on draft night as they chose…...

The Denver Nuggets’ point guard is their center, and their center is their point guard. OK, that’s painting with too broad a brush, but at certain points this season, the responsibilities Jamal Murray and Nikola Jokic have as ball handler and big man have blurred. Late in the second quarter of Tuesday’s Game 5 win, Murray shot up from the…...

Derrick White shredded Denver’s defense like a chainsaw to a row of shrubs in Game 3. The Colorado kid scored 36 points almost exclusively on drives to the rim as the Spurs seized control of the series. Afterward, a frustrated Michael Malone likened his team to an admittance crew. “We looked like a bunch of ticket takers,” Malone said. “Take…...

Michael Malone elevating Torrey Craig into the starting lineup, why he went with Craig over Malik Beasley and where Will Barton’s head is at following the demotion.

Steve Kerr, the NBA’s all-time leader in 3-point percentage, used to scribble the letters “FI” on his sneakers, shorthand for “f*** it.” “If you’re self-conscious as a shooter, you’re doomed,” Kerr explained in Chris Ballard’s excellent book “The Art of a Beautiful Game.” With 1:23 to go in…...

An hour after Jamal Murray roared to life in the fourth quarter to lift the Nuggets to an improbable Game 2 victory, he admitted that it wasn’t close to being his hottest shooting night of the season. “Boston, Phoenix, Sacramento,” Murray said, talking through a grin that grew wider and wider as one renowned offensive performance after another from the…...

With his team on the ropes in the third quarter, their dream season hanging on by a thread, Michael Malone called a timeout to regroup and mount one last charge. The Nuggets trailed by 16 points with a quarter and a half to go, and their head coach could sense hope was fading. “I could see it on some guy’s…...

After the Nuggets laid enough bricks to build a new Natural Grocers, Nikola Jokic ambled to the interview room, nonchalantly answered questions and when it was over, went all court jester. “My voice sounds funny on this thing,” he said, jiggling the microphone in front of him. “Hahaha.” Meanwhile, his pick-and-roll partner was upstairs getting shots up to try to…...

Gregg Popovich erupted like a 2 liter filled with Mentos a minute into the Spurs’ final regular-season matchup against the Nuggets on April 3. Popovich, apparently incensed by a non-call against Paul Millsap in the post or perhaps just playing the long game with a Spurs-Nuggets first-round series possibly on the docket, stomped all the way to his team’s own…...

Michael Malone isn’t much of a wine guy, but for one week in Argentina, Gregg Popovich turned Denver’s coach into a sommelier. The setting: The NBA’s Basketball Without Borders camp in Buenos Aires. There, Malone and Popovich met for the first time, drank plenty of high-priced Malbecs and bonded over conversation about Russian history and basketball. The week went so…...
