Many executives across the league were caught off guard by the new level Nikola Jokic reached in the playoffs last season, including the All-Star center’s countryman and Sacramento Kings assistant general manager Peja Stojakovic. “I had Peja who I know well come up to me and he goes, ‘I had no idea Nikola had that in him,'” Michael Malone…...

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.

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.

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…...

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…...

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…...
