Michael Malone called him the “MVP of the game.” Watching it unfold Thursday, it was hard to believe that as recently as four months ago, Rodney Hood was a middling player on one of the NBA’s worst teams. In February, Cleveland traded him to Portland for Nik Stauskas, a fringe rotation player, Wade Baldwin IV, currently teamless, and a pair…...

Michael Malone was joking, but sitting a few feet away from Denver’s coach when he proclaimed that Nikola Jokic may play 48 minutes in the Nuggets’ do-or-die Game 7 against the Spurs, you had to wonder if there was a kernel of truth to his comments. Denver was coming off a Game 6 loss in San Antonio where Jokic was…...

Caught in one of the worst shooting slumps of his season, Monte Morris used laughter to cope with the Nuggets’ Game 2 loss, trading jokes with Will Barton from across Denver’s locker room. “Shots are going to fall. We don’t need to make adjustments. We know what we’ve got to do. Ain’t time to get in panic mode,” Monte Morris…...

For the first time all season, a united Pepsi Center crowd chanted for someone other than Nikola Jokic. “M-V-P”, “M-V-P” was replaced with “TOR-EY”, “TOR-EY” as the Nuggets’ small forward stood near Denver’s bench, nose still bleeding from a first-half fall that sent him to the locker room. The chants grew louder as Craig approached to the free-throw line. “That…...

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…...

SAN ANTONIO — A little more than an hour after the Nuggets fell to the Spurs in Game 3 of their first-round series, Monte Morris arrived back at Denver’s team hotel situated in downtown San Antonio, took out his cell phone and transmitted a few words of encouragement to his starting point guard over the Texas airwaves. “I just told…...

Malik Beasley hasn’t gotten much sleep lately. It hasn’t been Denver’s poor three-point shooting that’s kept the Nuggets’ third-year shooting guard up late into the night. It’s Beasley’s newborn, Makai, who arrived in Denver on March 26 at 20 inches, seven pounds and one ounce. “I’d rather not say,” Beasley joked following the Nuggets’ 113-85 win over the Spurs when…...

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…

And with a postseason berth in their back pocket, Denver is barrelling down at another one of the objectives that it took aim at in the preseason. The Nuggets topped the Knicks Friday 111-93, moving to 49-22 on the season and into a tie with…...

The Nuggets’ bench is rock solid, but in recent weeks, the impact they’ve made has been inconsistent as Denver fiddled with inserting Isaiah Thomas as a regular and Michael Malone pared his rotation down.

Monte Morris carries an incredible amount of moxie for someone who only logged 25 NBA minutes before this season. The Nuggets’ 23 year old backup point guard, only two years removed from a storied four-year run at Iowa State, isn’t afraid to challenge his teammates no matter how much cachet they hold in Denver’s locker room. Morris will get in…...
