  1. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Spurs finish season on top

    Apr 14, 2014, 2:14 PM EDT

    Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan

    Spurs close out the season on top, but can they beat the Thunder in a playoff series? Can the Thunder get through the gauntlet in front of them to get a showdown with the Spurs?

  2. The Extra Pass: Winning regular season series doesn’t guarantee playoff success… but it doesn’t hurt

    Apr 9, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Miami Heat

    In the past three seasons, the team that has won the regular season series between teams has gone 23-11 in the playoffs when they meet.

  3. Nuggets’ J.J. Hickson to miss remainder of the season with torn ACL

    Mar 23, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

  4. Thursday night NBA grades: Wizards/Raptors have one game worth watching

    Feb 28, 2014, 3:05 AM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Golden State Warriors

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while reminding yourself not to make love to a pizza…. Marcin Gortat, Washington Wizards. That is why Washington needed Marcin Gorat. It may have taken John Wall a while to realize it — there were some rough patches at the start — but Gortat has…

  5. JaVale McGee has surgery on stress fracture in left leg, done for season

    Feb 20, 2014, 5:41 PM EDT

    JaVale McGee

    JaVale McGee hasn’t played since the sixth game of the NBA season due to a stress fracture in his left leg and it has showed on the defensive end for Denver — opposing centers are shooting 50.6 percent against the Nuggets and teams are averaging 45.2 points a game in the paint against them, 26th…

  6. Trading for a star mid-season to make an immediate impact? Don’t count on it

    Feb 20, 2014, 9:15 AM EDT

    Deron Williams, Carmelo Anthony

    The Luol Deng trade gave us something we hadn’t seen in three years – a star dealt mid-season. The trade might even give us something we haven’t seen in even longer – a star dealt mid-season actually improving his new team. Teams make mid-season trades for several reasons, but we’re going to examine one archetype…

  7. Report: JaVale McGee nowhere near return, could be out rest of season

    Feb 6, 2014, 12:38 PM EDT

    JaVale McGee

    The Denver Nuggets have struggled up front this season — opposing centers are shooting 50.6 percent against the Nuggets and teams are averaging 44.9 points a game in the paint against them, 25th in the NBA. A big part of the reason for that is JaVale McGee has only played five games for them this…

  8. Marco Belinelli confirms he’ll participate in All-Star weekend’s three-point contest

    Jan 29, 2014, 10:13 AM EDT

    Marco Belinelli

    All-Star weekend in New Orleans is a little more than two weeks away, and we’ll be getting official word on all of the events’ participants soon enough. The reserves for each All-Star team will be announced on Thursday (though we already know Joakim Noah is in), and the fields for the dunk contest and three-point…

  9. Report: Nuggets’ Gallinari has ACL surgery, done for season

    Jan 21, 2014, 3:42 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets forward Gallinari reacts after making a shot during the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City

    The cavalry — in the form of one of the better shooting power forwards in the game — will not be riding over the hill to save the Denver Nuggets this season. Danillo Gallinari is out for the season. Not that he has played so far this season, but his return was expected. Gallinari has…

  10. Danilo Gallinari says he is not sure when, or if, he returns this season

    Jan 15, 2014, 3:14 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari celebrates a score past the Toronto Raptors in the fourth quarter of their NBA basketball game in Denver

    Denver has been a roller coaster this season — lose eight in a row, win the next five, then get blown out by lowly Utah — and part of that is they miss the consistent scoring (and threat) that is Danilo Gallinari. Last season he was averaging 16.2 points a game and spacing the floor…

  11. George Karl thinks Iguodala was Mark Jackson’s mole, still ticked about Jackson’s playoff “tricks”

    Nov 29, 2013, 11:02 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets head coach George Karl watches his team play against the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 6 of their NBA Western Conference basketball playoffs in Denver

    Denver looked like a team that could do a lot of damage in the playoffs last season – they won 57 games, the players bought into the style George Karl was preaching, and they were a disruptive if not elite defense. Then Danilo Gallinari went down and they were never the same. On either end…

  12. NBA All-Star balloting opens with some interesting questions

    Nov 15, 2013, 4:56 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    If he doesn’t come back until December, is Kobe Bryant still a starting All-Star guard in the West? Or should Stephen Curry or James Harden have that spot? Does Kevin Love move past Tim Duncan into the starting lineup? Is Paul George a starter in the East? Is it time for a Derrick Rose/Kyrie Irving…

  13. Warriors’ owner says Iguodala sent word during playoffs he liked Golden State

    Nov 13, 2013, 10:57 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    Denver was a 57-win team last season, but one that lost a star player to injury (Danilo Gallinari) then was bounced in the first round by Golden State. Still, after that success the upheaval they underwent this summer was a surprise — gone was the GM to Toronto, the coach was fired, and their biggest…

  14. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Pacers, Rockets, T-Wolves and Sixers on top

    Nov 4, 2013, 2:04 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New Orleans Pelicans

    The first few weeks of the Power Rankings see crazy fluctuations — teams that aren’t really that good start off hot, teams that are good start cold, so teams bounce up and down the rankings like they are on a bungee cord the first few weeks. Eventually things find their level. But this week was…

  15. Wilson Chandler out for Nuggets opener, Lawson may join him

    Oct 29, 2013, 10:29 AM EDT

    Wilson Chandler

    It’s not really a surprise, Wilson Chandler has been battling a hamstring injury for weeks and those are slow to heal, but now it is official: Chandler is on the Nuggets inactive list for the season opener Wednesday at Sacramento. That is certainly a blow because in an ideal world the Nuggets rotation at the…

  16. Nate Robinson isn’t sure why teams overlook him, but he’s sure he likes Brian Shaw

    Oct 28, 2013, 7:08 PM EDT

    Nate Robinson

    When Nate Robinson catches fire, there is no better show in the NBA. What playoff quarter was more entertaining than his 23-point fourth quarter in the first round of the playoffs against Brooklyn in Game 4, when Robinson single handedly forced overtime? He’s the shortest player in the NBA, a fan favorite everywhere and he…

  17. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Let the season begin!

    Oct 28, 2013, 1:16 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    To celebrate a new season, we bring you a new set of NBA Power Rankings from PBT. Let the kvetching about your ranking begin! Just remember that this is an exercise in fun — these are meaningless as the NBA has a playoff system to decide who is best. What sport would rely on journalist’s…

  18. Ty Lawson may miss season opener for Nuggets

    Oct 28, 2013, 9:50 AM EDT

    Ty Lawson

    People in the “Denver can again make the playoffs camp” will grant you that Andre Iguodala is gone and Danilo Gallinari will not be back until likely sometime after Thanksgiving, but they say the Nuggets still have a lot from last season’t 57-win team. Such as Ty Lawson… except they may not have him Wednesday…

  19. Nuggets’ Kenneth Faried suffers right hamstring strain

    Oct 17, 2013, 6:05 PM EDT

    Kenneth Faried

    Kenneth Faried in some ways symbolized the Denver Nuggets last season — athletic and with boundless energy to outwork his opponents, improving but still a bit raw and figuring out how to really play the game. Faried’s ability to bring that same energy at the start of this new season could have been compromised —…

  20. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Denver Nuggets

    Oct 8, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    JaVale McGee

    Last season: The Nuggets finished the regular season with the best home record in the league, and a franchise best 57 wins, good for the three seed in the Western Conference playoffs. Then, they were bounced out of the first round by the Golden State Warriors in six games. George Karl won Coach of the…

  21. George Karl hopes to return to coaching, admits ‘anger and frustration’ over way things ended with Nuggets

    Oct 6, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    George Karl

    George Karl led the Nuggets to the best home record in all of the NBA last season, and along with it a 57-win season that was the most in franchise history since the team joined the NBA in the 1976-77 season. But all of that wasn’t enough to save Karl’s job. He won the Coach…

  22. Randy Foye’s internal organs are all in the wrong place. Yes, seriously.

    Oct 4, 2013, 6:42 PM EDT

    Randy Foye

    Randy Foye is a veteran sharpshooter, last season in Utah he was taking 5.3 shots from beyond the arc a game and hitting 41 percent of them. He is entering his eighth NBA season, can play a little point in a pinch but mostly he is there to space the floor and knock down bombs…

  23. Danilo Gallinari says he could be back around Thanksgiving

    Sep 25, 2013, 11:12 AM EDT

    Danilo Gallinari, Zach Randolph

    Most pundits (myself included) expect a big drop off in Denver this year. Gone is the glue of Andre Iguodala to hold the defense together, gone is the veteran coach George Karl (replaced by the capable but untested Brian Shaw), and they are without Danilo Gallinari, who is key to their offense. It was obvious…

  24. Still no official timeline for Gallinari return in Denver

    Sep 20, 2013, 4:45 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets forward Gallinari reacts after making a shot during the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City

    This summer Danilo Gallinari has been doing his knee rehab in Italy, because… well, if you could choose where to do your knee rehab work wouldn’t you choose Italy? Gallinari partially tore his ACL back on April 4, and on that day the Denver Nuggets playoff dreams tore as well. When he returns he will…

  25. Joe Dumars hopes Josh Smith-Greg Monroe-Andre Drummond frontcourt can take cues from Hawks and Grizzlies

    Aug 7, 2013, 6:12 PM EDT

    Josh Smith, Andre Drummond

    Which team has the best starting frontcourt in the NBA? Depending on how you value the top player compared to the depth of the trio, there are several contenders including: Nets (Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Brook Lopez) Bulls (Luol Deng, Carlos Boozer, Joakim Noah) Nuggets (Danilo Gallinari, Kenneth Faried, JaVale McGee) Warriors (Andre Iguodala, David…
