Jamal Murray delivered the dagger with 1:46 to play. As the shot clock was winding down, the Nuggets’ 22-year-old point guard took two dribbles to his left, stepped sideways to create space, got Steven Adams to bite on a pump fake and flicked in a 3. The shot stretched Denver’s lead to double digits and capped what Nuggets coach Michael…...

How many NBA players play with more confidence than Jamal Murray? It’s a short list. That confidence was oozing out of Murray’s pores Friday in Oklahoma City where the point guard with the quickest heat check in the league lit the Thunder up for a cool 27 points on just 20 shots and swished a 28-foot dagger with 1:46 remaining in…...

The Denver Nuggets have been the NBA’s best team on the second night of back to backs this season. They’re 10-1 in second games within a 48-hour period. In November, the Nuggets clipped the Thunder on the second night of a back to back in Oklahoma City. On Friday, they did the same, coming away with a 115-105 win to…...

Michael Malone’s phone lit up in the middle of his car ride home from the Nuggets’ 29-point win over the Clippers Sunday evening with a text from his starting small forward. Will Barton’s message wasn’t in regards to the three points he scored that night on a paltry 1-6 shooting or his offensive inconsistencies, which through Sunday had been a…

The Nuggets have the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference in their sights. Behind 36 points, nine rebounds and 10 assists from Nikola Jokic, the Nuggets held off a furious fourth-quarter rally from the Oklahoma City Thunder and Paul George to win 121-112 in front of a sold-out crowd and a nationally televised audience. Denver led by 13 at…...

There aren’t any Russell Westbrooks in the NBL, Australia and New Zealand’s National Basketball League where Torrey Craig cut his teeth for three seasons before arriving in Denver two summers ago. Still, Craig has never looked overmatched against the former league MVP in any of the five games that the Thunder and Nuggets have played against one another since the 6-foot-6…...

It was a meaningless preseason matchup, the fifth exhibition game and final tune-up for the 2017-18 regular season that was a week away. Denver and Oklahoma City’s starters would play maybe 20 minutes, get a quick sweat in, find their chemistry and get off the floor without any injuries. Russell Westbrook had other plans that evening. On the Thunder’s third…...

OKLAHOMA CITY — The Denver Nuggets’ Feb. 1 game against the Oklahoma City Thunder had everything.

There were viral moments; Jamal Murray’s crossover, which caused Steven Adams to crumple to the ground in a…...

Earlier this week, Nuggets coach Michael Malone said he stopped looking at the NBA’s last two minute reports altogether. On Sunday, the last two minute report released following Denver’s narrow win over the Dallas Mavericks, concluded the officials made an incorrect call when they tagged Nikola Jokic with a charge late in the game. The blown call gave the Mavericks…...

DENVER — Midway through Thursday’s second quarter, Jamal Murray found himself isolated against Steven Adams on the right wing. Murray took one hard dribble with his left hand, went between his legs twice, found his rhythm with a final crossover back to his right, jumped behind the three-point line, coiled his body and readied for a three. Murray rose and fired as Adams crumbled to the…...
