  1. Will the Nuggets win 57 games again? Andre Miller: ‘Naw’

    Jul 17, 2013, 12:20 AM EDT

    Andre Miller, C.J. Watson

    The Nuggets completed a trifecta this offseason, losing a high-end player (Andre Iguodala, who signed with the Warriors), a high-end coach (George Karl, who was fired) and a high-end executive (Masai Ujiri, who was plucked by the Raptors). It’s a disappointing follow-up to a season in which Denver won a franchise-record 57 NBA games. Not…

    Jun 24, 2013, 8:50 PM EDT

    Brian Shaw

    Brian Shaw has finally landed a head coaching job. And it’s a good one — he’s taking over the 57-win Denver Nuggets. This was first reported by the Denver Post. It was confirmed by Marc Spears of Yahoo Sports who got the word from Shaw himself. "Appreciate the opportunity & grateful that Josh Kroenke &…

  4. Nuggets reportedly parted ways with George Karl because he wasn’t listening to management

    Jun 7, 2013, 10:23 AM EDT

    George Karl

    When the Nuggets informed George Karl that they would be parting ways with the tenured head coach on Thursday, it was definitely surprising, but it wasn’t necessarily a complete shock. Karl earned the Coach of the Year award for guiding Denver to 57 regular season wins and the best home record in the league, but…

  5. Now that Tracy McGrady has played in the second round, who’s the best active player never to do so?

    May 11, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Tracy McGrady

    Ten years after he said “It feels good to get in the second round,” Tracy McGrady finally played in the second round of an NBA playoff series. Now a role player with the Spurs, McGrady played the final 51 seconds of San Antonio’s Game 2 loss Wednesday. He never led a team to the second…

  6. It’s official: Denver’s Masai Ujiri named Executive of the Year

    May 9, 2013, 2:16 PM EDT

    Masai Ujiri

    We told you this was coming and now it is official: Denver’s GM Masai Ujiri has been named NBA Executive of the Year in a vote of his peers. Gary Sacks of the Los Angeles Clippers came in second, Daryl Morey of the Houston Rockets finished third. Ujiri was the guy who walked into the…

  7. Warriors look to close out the Nuggets, but is their focus on the right things?

    May 2, 2013, 3:50 PM EDT

    Mark Jackson, Stephen Curry

    The Warriors look to be in a perfect position. They have the series lead over the Nuggets at 3 games to 2. They’re heading home to Oracle Arena to play a close out game where the fans will create an environment that’s rarely seen in pro sports. They have the best player in the series…

  8. Nuggets find their game, hold off the Warriors to take game 5

    May 1, 2013, 12:01 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets' Iguodala drives past Golden State Warriors' Curry during their NBA Western Conference quarter-final basketball playoff in Denver

    The Nuggets finally looked like themselves this series, and not a moment too soon. By beating the Warriors 107-100, the Nuggets not only staved off elimination, but grabbed some momentum in the process. Nearly every Nugget win this season saw the same trends develop and this game was no different. Denver scored 50 points in…

  9. Facing Elimination, Nuggets need to pull out all the stops against Warriors

    Apr 30, 2013, 2:11 PM EDT

    George Karl, Andre Iguodala

    Few people expected we’d be at this point this soon, if they even thought we’d be here at all. The Nuggets are facing elimination in the fifth game of their series versus the Warriors — a series many had them winning at the outset, with even more jumping on the bandwagon after David Lee was…

  10. Warriors win a wild Game 3 to take a 2-1 series lead over Nuggets

    Apr 27, 2013, 2:14 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors Jarrett Jack gestures during their NBA Western Division quarter-final playoff game against the Denver Nuggets in Oakland

    The Warriors shot the lights out in Denver to steal Game 2 from the Nuggets, and home court advantage in the best of seven first round series right along with it. In Game 3 at Oracle Arena on Friday, Golden State didn’t need an otherworldly performance to seal the victory; they only needed the Nuggets…

  11. With David Lee out, Stephen Curry becomes even more important in Game 2

    Apr 23, 2013, 1:35 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets - Game One

    The playoffs are all about adjustments, but even though the Warriors find themselves down 1-0 to the Nuggets they really don’t have to change too much heading into this all important game two. Missing David Lee certainly hurts. When looking at the match ups in this series, he was one player who clearly had an…

  12. Kendrick Perkins leads fast break, throws alley-oop pass to Ibaka (VIDEO)

    Apr 22, 2013, 10:09 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder's Perkins takes a free throw against Milwaukee Bucks during their NBA basketball game in Milwaukee

    You knew things were going Oklahoma City’s way when this happened. After Russell Westbrook makes an athletic play to make a steal, Kendrick Perkins picks up the loose ball and takes off on the fast break. So he can dribble, we learned. Then as they got close to the rim he threw the alley-oop to…

  13. Nuggets, Andre Miller use second half surge to defeat Warriors

    Apr 20, 2013, 10:44 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets - Game One

    Game one proved to be the perfect example of why this series has a chance to be the best of the first round match ups. Both teams dueled down the stretch with some fantastic shot making, but it was Andre Miller’s lay up in the final seconds that lifted the Nuggets to a 97-95 win…

  14. Andre Miller converts game-winning layup to give Nuggets Game 1 win over Warriors (VIDEO)

    Apr 20, 2013, 8:40 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets Andre Miller watches his layup go in to defeat the Golden State Warriors in the last seconds of their NBA Western Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in Denver

    The pundits say this year’s version of the Denver Nuggets is a team without a superstar. Try telling that to Andre Miller, who put in an especially dominant performance to lift the Nuggets to a 97-95 win over the Warriors in Game 1 of their first round playoff matchup. Miller scored 18 of his game…

  15. Ty Lawson returns to action for Denver. Which is good.

    Apr 12, 2013, 9:57 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets' Lawson celebrates game winning basket over Oklahoma City Thunder in NBA basketball game in Denver

    As I have said on this site before, Denver will miss Danilo Gallinari come the playoffs. They’ll miss his ability to stretch the floor as a four and the fact he was part of most of their best lineups. But they need to get Ty Lawson all the way back if they are going to…

  16. Ty Lawson practices, could play Wednesday against Spurs

    Apr 9, 2013, 5:53 PM EDT

    Tony Parker,Danny Green, Ty Lawson

    The Nuggets are going to miss Danilo Gallinari in the playoffs, but Wilson Chandler and Corey Brewer can fill in some of his production and points. But they aren’t going anywhere in the postseason without Ty Lawson. Andre Miller is a great point guard off the bench but Lawson is the engine that makes the…

  17. PBT Podcast: Injuries affecting the West playoff picture, and will the Lakers get in?

    Apr 5, 2013, 2:01 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Denver Nuggets

    In this edition of the podcast, Kurt Helin and I sit down to discuss the playoff picture with less than two weeks remaining in the regular season. We begin with Thursday night’s games, where the Nuggets got a costly win over the Mavericks, considering that Danilo Gallinari was lost likely for the season with a…

  18. Three Stars of the Night: A lot of Durant. And Boozer.

    Apr 5, 2013, 7:59 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Kawhi Leonard

    Three games on Thursday night, three teams picked up wins, we’re going to honor one guy from each team. It’s just that simple. Third Star: Andre Miller (23 points, 7 assists) More responsibility falls on him with Ty Lawson out and he was up to it on Thursday night. He was the guy providing offense…

  19. Nuggets lose Gallinari, but Iguodala’s game-winner gives them win over Mavericks

    Apr 5, 2013, 12:40 AM EDT

    Danilo Gallinari, Chris Kaman, Shawn Marion

    Andre Iguodala‘s driving layup with under three seconds remaining gave the Nuggets their 19th consecutive home victory on Thursday, 95-94 over a Mavericks team that had plenty of chances. The win was a good one for Denver, considering the circumstances. The Nuggets, already without starting point guard Ty Lawson due to a plantar fascia injury,…

  20. Kenneth Faried finishes half-court alley-oop from Andre Miller (VIDEO)

    Apr 4, 2013, 9:20 AM EDT

    Kenneth Faried

    The veteran Andre Miller may throw the best lob pass in the NBA right now. Chris Paul is right there, but Miller has a great court sense and is so accurate with his passes. Kenneth Faried can finish. If your nickname is “manimal” you better know how to dunk with authority. Combine them and you…

  21. Lawson on heel injury: “I couldn’t move.” Time to rest the man.

    Mar 28, 2013, 2:23 PM EDT

    Tony Parker,Danny Green, Ty Lawson

    It was a one-point game at the end — the Denver Nuggets had a real shot of knocking off the San Antonio Spurs on the road. Denver had the last shot. But that last shot wasn’t pretty — Danilo Gallinari couldn’t create a shot for himself so he dumped it to Andre Miller who tried…

  23. Lack of energy, lack of Lawson ends Denver’s streak in New Orleans

    Mar 26, 2013, 1:30 AM EDT

    Anthony Davis , Wilson Chandler, Kosta Koufos

    It didn’t take long into Monday night’s contest to know this was not the Nuggets night. Maybe it was the early 7-0 Hornets run, or the 15-3 run in the middle of the first quarter, or the Nuggets 33 percent shooting in the first quarter, or… you get the idea. Denver was having one of…

  24. Highlights of Nuggets carving up Thunder defense (VIDEO)

    Mar 20, 2013, 8:42 AM EDT

    Danilo Gallinari nuggets

    That would be 13 wins in a row for the Nuggets, and we don’t want that streak to get lost in the news about that other streak. So, here is some video of the Nuggets knocking down shots and having their way with the Thunder defense Tuesday. Ty Lawson had another good game for Denver…
