There’s a tale rooted deep in Nuggets lore that serves as a fitting conclusion to Denver’s dream season, which came to an end Sunday. In 2013, soon after Nuggets president of basketball operations Tim Connelly took over Denver’s front office, he and his staff went out to lunch at a downtown establishment. During the meal, he offered his waiter tickets…...

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…...

The Nuggets are about to hop in their DeLorean and time travel back to 2019. If the offensive execution at times in the Nuggets’ first-round matchup against the Spurs set basketball back, as Gregg Popovich stated after his team’s Game 7 loss last week, Denver’s second-round matchup versus the Portland Trail Blazers will look much more like basketball is played…...

Wind and Clark recap the Nuggets’ Game 7 win over the Spurs, Nikola Jokic’s remarkable offensive and defensive play throughout the series and the most impressive part of his performance across Denver’s seven games that doesn’t show up in the box score. Also, how the Jamal Murray-Derrick White matchup told the story of the series and a look ahead to…

SAN ANTONIO — You’d think that a small forward who’s playing heavy minutes in his first career playoff series and is tasked with guarding four-time All-Star DeMar DeRozan only two years removed from starring in Australia and New Zealand’s National Basketball League would feel a few nerves stepping out onto the floor under the brighter than usual postseason lights. Torrey…...

In Game 3, the Nuggets had front row seats to Derrick White show. For four quarters the Spurs’ point guard rumbled down the lane and sunk one uncontested right-handed layup after another in the 24-year-old’s best game as a pro. “We looked like a bunch of ticket takers,” Malone said of White’s straight-line drives to the basket and the 62…...

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.

SAN ANTONIO — In the playoffs, where adjustments made by coaches and players ultimately decide the outcomes of series, Michael Malone’s decision ahead of Game 4 just gave the Nuggets a new lease on their postseason lives. After struggling through the first three games of the first-round series, Denver’s coach removed Will Barton from his starting lineup and replaced him…...

SAN ANTONIO — The last time the Nuggets won in San Antonio prior to Saturday night, Jamal Murray was a freshman in high school and Torrey Craig was a sophomore at South Carolina-Upstate. “Shoutout to Upstate by the way,” said Craig after stepping into the starting lineup and drilling five 3s in the Nuggets’ series-evening 117-103 win. “Go Spartans.” Nikola…...

SAN ANTONIO — The shots are finally falling. In Game 1, 3-point shooting doomed the Nuggets as they lost home-court advantage. They’ve progressively gotten better on the offensive end, though, and in Game 4, they buried the Spurs under an avalanche of 3s. Torrey Craig hit five deep balls, and Jamal Murray and Will Barton hit three a piece as Denver…...

The triple-double dropping, no-look passing, efficient scoring Nikola Jokic is most well-known for his offensive prowess. It’s why after a Game 1 loss to the Spurs where Jokic handed out 14 assists and became the only center other than Wilt Chamberlain to accomplish that feat in a playoff game his 10 points on 4-of-9 shooting drew the ire of some…...

Nikola Jokic stared DeMar DeRozan down as he came over to apply the double-team like an outfielder looks a fly ball into his glove. Jokic dribbled the ball twice with his right hand, surveyed the defense as he put his backside into Jakob Poeltl and like clockwork DeRozan shuffled down the lane to force the ball out of his hands.…...

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…

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. But in the last few games, Thomas has, save for a first-half stint in Boston, not gotten minutes, and Malone has settled on four reserve contributors:…...
