No one expects the day in front of them to be one they’ll remember forever. Most days are tedious and uneventful. Most days come and go like any other. Not a single person on their way to the Pepsi Center expected to learn what the whole world would learn on Sunday afternoon. But every single one of us will remember…...

The Denver Nuggets were in New Orleans on Friday night looking to redeem themselves after consecutive losses to the Pelicans. There were some notable differences in this third matchup—the Nuggets were without Jamal Murray, Paul Millsap, and Mason Plumlee, and the Pelicans were with the number one overall draft pick, Zion Williamson. It wasn’t exactly a recipe for success, but…...

Much has changed since the Minnesota Timberwolves ended a 14-year playoff drought by breaking Denver’s six-game win streak, and hearts, in the final game of the 2017-18 season. The Timberwolves haven’t been back to the postseason since. As Minnesota’s future has trended down, the Nuggets’ has grown increasingly bright, and the Wolves haven’t won a head-to-head matchup in their last…...

You know the formula. The Denver Nuggets played a game on national television and their opponents, the Golden State Warriors, brought with them the league’s worst record—this is Denver’s perfect storm. The Nuggets were bound to struggle, but that de-facto handicap wasn’t enough to brace us for the children’s soccer game that ensued. Any win is a good win without…...

Jamal Murray left his feet to contest a shot late in the second quarter and landed awkwardly, twisting his left ankle and falling to the ground. Murray will play through just about anything, but he struggled to get to his feet and was ultimately helped off the court as he worked his way back to the locker room. All eyes…...

The Denver Nuggets entered Saturday night’s game against the Cleveland Cavaliers with five losses to teams with less than 15 wins and six losses to teams with a record below .500. The Cavs had yet to win a game against a team with a winning record. It all added up to peak exasperation when the Nuggets trailed the Cavs nearly…...

Since hiring head coach Michael Malone in June of 2015, Denver Nuggets have quietly developed an elite young core without sacrificing their ability to win games in the meantime. They’ve proven to be one of the top teams out West, at least in the regular season, but have managed to fly under the radar. The Nuggets don’t draw a lot…...

It’s easy to forget that, save for Gary Harris, Will Barton III has spent as much time alongside Nikola Jokić as any Denver Nugget. It was Barton who sat next to Jokić at the start of last season, having both just signed extensions with the team, and joked to the media that they were Denver’s version of Kobe and Shaq.…...

The Washington Wizards were without Bradley Beal, Rui Hachimura, Davis Bertans, Thomas Bryant, Moritz Wagner, C.J. Miles, and John Wall when they hosted the 24-10 Denver Nuggets on Saturday night. They dropped 128 points and won by 14. It was the worst loss of the season for the Nuggets, if not any team in the league. The Nuggets looked ready…...

Where were you on January 2nd, 2020? Michael Porter Jr. and the Denver Nuggets were in Indiana, looking to hand the Pacers their first home loss in six games and bounce back after a meltdown in Houston. It didn’t look good early—Nikola Jokić spent most of the first half on the bench in foul trouble, and the Nuggets never led…...

In a surprising series of events, Denver Nuggets’ guard Gary Harris was added to the injury report as “PROBABLE” with a shin contusion. Roughly an hour before tip-off, the team downgraded him to “OUT,” the starters were announced, and Michael Porter Jr. was listed at the small forward position. It wasn’t technically a debut, nor was it the first time…...

It’s like Christmas night never happened. The Denver Nuggets looked themselves again on Saturday night as they led wire-to-wire in a 119-110 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies. And by looked themselves, I mean the complete package—building up a big lead, failing to close out the half strong, losing focus on defense in the third quarter, but pulling out a win…...

The Denver Nuggets entered their Christmas game with the New Orleans Pelicans riding a seven-game winning streak while boasting the best offensive efficiency in the NBA during that span. Denver was hosting the first-ever Christmas game in Pepsi Center history, and the holiday spirit permeated the arena as a buzzing crowd filed in and found their seats. The Nuggets had…...

If you missed this game, as one too many Nuggets fans have this season, an apt summary might be one that skips to its thrilling conclusion. Four quarters of basketball had nearly come and gone before Denver secured their seventh consecutive win with a clutch three, an icy clutch step-back, a clutch substitution, and a game-sealing block. The Nuggets made…...

The Denver Nuggets entered Friday night’s division showdown with the Minnesota Timberwolves hoping to complete their first 5-0 home stand since 2012. With No Karl-Anthony Towns in the lineup, the Nuggets were favored by ten at the tip—but in classic 2019-20 Nuggets’ fashion, they failed to complete the blowout as a once 19-point lead shrank down to 2 with 05:23…
