IT’S THE WEEK OF AUGUST 13, 2018, six weeks before training camp would open, and over 1,400 miles away from the Nuggets’ practice court, the foundation for Denver’s 2018-19 season was laid. The venue was Paul Millsap’s state-of-the-art Core 4 facility in Atlanta, Georgia where for one week Denver moved its entire basketball operations department. During the day, spirited 5-on-5…

Continuity and chemistry. That’s what Nuggets president of basketball operations Tim Connelly attributes his team’s success to this season. “Continuity of the best coaching staff in the NBA and the continuity and chemistry with an ownership group that saw our vision,” he told BSN Denver earlier this week. “And it was kind of a far-fetched vision that we’re going to build…...

Tim Connelly’s fingerprints are all over this Nuggets roster. From Nikola Jokic, who Connelly and his front office plucked from the Adriatic League in 2014, to Malik Beasley, Monte Morris, Gary Harris, Jamal Murray and Juancho Hernangomez, six players that Connelly had a hand in drafting who have all been parts of the Nuggets’ rotation at one time or another…...

The Nuggets were dead in the water, trailing by 15 points in the first quarter against the Kings. Until Isaiah Thomas checked. Thomas walked to the scorer’s table with under four minutes to go in the first quarter. He checked in moments later to a standing ovation. After an 11-month recovery from hip surgery, Thomas was back. He sparked the…...

As Isaiah Thomas walked to the scorer’s table, the Pepsi Center faithful began to rise. One by one they welcomed Thomas to the game and his first competitive basketball in 11 months with a standing ovation, an appropriate gesture for the two-time All-Star. Thomas’ long-awaited Nuggets debut was a smashing success. After a productive first-quarter stint, Thomas sparked Denver after halftime…...

Everything changed for Isaiah Thomas on April 15, 2017. After his sister Chyna tragically died in a car accident nearly two years ago, Thomas took a new outlook on life. Ever since, he’s brushed aside the negative energy that fills up his Twitter timeline daily and only focuses on the positive. So to all of Thomas’ naysayers, the cynics, the doubters…...

Three nuggets for the three-game losing streak that came to an end Monday. Denver beat Miami 103-87 in its second-to-last game before the All-Star break. 1. Pretend Paul Millsap got his memory wiped “Men in Black” style before Monday’s game. Indulge me for a second. Millsap might’ve been confused to see the large Serbian man on his team dominating his…...

Coincidence or not, Denver’s best defensive game in weeks came with the Nuggets’ defensive captain back in the lineup. Paul Millsap, who missed the last three games with ankle soreness, watched helplessly from the sidelines as the Nuggets gave up 129, 135 and 117 points to the Pistons, Nets and 76ers as Denver’s defense continued to plummet from the top-5…...

Coming off a three-game losing streak and with the All-Star break less than a week away, Michael Malone knew the importance of tonight’s matchup against the Heat. “Our sense of urgency has to be at a season high tonight, having lost three games in a row,” Malone said an hour and a half before tip. But it wasn’t the start Denver’s…...

For Isaiah Thomas, nothing about his grueling 10-month rehab from season-ending hip surgery last March has been easy. But surely the most difficult chapter of his journey back to the court took place over the last few months as Thomas was restricted to watching his team surge to the top of the Western Conference standings from the sidelines in street clothes.…...
