Denver Nuggets

  1. Report: Wizards interested in Nuggets’ Andre Miller, but a trade is difficult

    Feb 11, 2014, 12:36 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Denver Nuggets

    It’s always about the money. As we near the trade deadline remember that: It is always about the money. The Washington Wizards could argue they are the third best team in the East. It’s a dubious honor this season and the title seems to change hands weekly between the Wizards, Raptors and Nets, but all…

  2. Ty Lawson, who couldn’t sit up straight for days, expected to be out ‘a little while’

    Feb 11, 2014, 12:00 PM EDT

    Mark Ayotte, Ty Lawson

    Before the season, it seemed the Nuggets had a surplus of point guards: Ty Lawson, Andre Miller and Nate Robinson. But Miller was sent home. Robinson had season-ending surgery. And now Lawson is hurt. Lawson, the Nuggets’ top player, broke a rib in a loss to the Pistons on Saturday. He missed Monday’s loss to…

  3. Monday night NBA grades: In a tanktastic season, Philadelphia finding new lows

    Feb 11, 2014, 3:25 AM EDT

    Sixers

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while wishing you had a beer refrigerator as cool as Canada’s…. Philadelphia 76ers. They have lost two consecutive games by 40 or more points — 45 to the Clippers on Sunday, 43 to the Warriors on Monday. The only other team to lose back-to-back games…

  4. Toronto Raptors reportedly wary of paying Kyle Lowry in $40 million range

    Feb 10, 2014, 5:54 PM EDT

    Kyle Lowry

    Kyle Lowry’s value has never been higher. It might never get higher. With Lowry heading into free agency this summer, this could be the exact right time to trade him. The Raptors could get substantial long-term assets in return, positioning themselves to truly contend down the road. However, a Lowry trade would almost certainly undermine…

  5. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Thunder stay on top, Bucks stay on bottom

    Feb 10, 2014, 3:24 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    More and more I think Adam Silver’s first NBA Finals as commissioner will feature Indiana and Oklahoma City — which would be good basketball but not exactly Super Bowl ratings. Things can change, but those are the two best teams right now.   1 Thunder (41-12, Last Week No. 1). We gave been praising Kevin…

  6. Nuggets’ J.J. Hickson throws down the one-handed jam on Pistons’ Andre Drummond (VIDEO)

    Feb 9, 2014, 9:30 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Utah Jazz

    The Nuggets are a bit injured at the moment, and have gotten rolled by large margins in their last two games. But that doesn’t mean there weren’t any highlights along the way. J.J. Hickson got free on a pick-and-roll against the Pistons on Saturday, and despite Andre Drummond being in the vicinity to protect the…

  7. Report: Metta World Peace open to being traded by Knicks

    Feb 8, 2014, 12:30 PM EDT

    New York Knicks vs Los Angeles Clippers

    Metta World Peace hasn’t exactly been a factor for the Knicks this season, and has spent most of the year either underperforming, injured, or just plain benched. Without any consistent playing time, and with delusions that he can perhaps still play significant minutes while actually helping a team’s cause rather than hurting it, it’s not…

  8. 2014 Rising Stars Challenge rosters set; Anthony Davis taken with first overall pick

    Feb 6, 2014, 10:31 PM EDT

    faried rising stars

    The Rising Stars Challenge kicks off the All-Star weekend festivities that Friday night, and features a mix of the game’s top rookies and sophomores competing in the exhibition. Teams used to be separated by seniority, which often times meant a blowout victory for the second-year players. But the league has since created a draft of…

  9. Wall, Lillard, George headline new look All-Star Saturday Dunk Contest

    Feb 6, 2014, 8:55 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Washington Wizards

    If all of us — red state, blue state, regardless of religion or skin color — could come together and agree on just two things they would be: 1) Kevin Durant’s new puppy is really cute. 2) The NBA All-Star Saturday Dunk Contest needed some life injected into it. The NBA has heard you on…

  10. 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…

  11. The Extra Pass: Blake Griffin’s alternate reality; plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Los Angeles Clippers v Miami Heat

    Tell me if this sounds at all familiar. 24 years old, about 6-foot-8, 6-foot-9. Roughly 250 pounds. Stronger and faster than just about everyone. Phenomenal basketball IQ. Highly skilled, but often criticized for what he can’t do instead of appreciated for what he does. That’s Blake Griffin. And at one point, that was LeBron James,…

  12. The Extra Pass: Central heat, plus Monday’s recaps

    Mike Brown

    No NBA head coach has been fired yet this season. Of course, “yet” is the key word there. Given the performances and the high expectations of a few teams in the Eastern Conference’s Central Division, that could be changing soon. Here’s a look at the tenuous positions of three coaches from that division, in order…

  13. Denver’s Randy Foye hits ridiculous leaning game-winning three (VIDEO)

    Feb 4, 2014, 2:28 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Denver Nuggets

    Just seconds before the Clippers’ Matt Barnes had drained a three off a pass and a nice bit of improvisation from J.J. Redick. The Clippers had a two-point lead and looked like they were going to escape Mile High with a win. Then Randy Foye happened. Whatever Nuggets coach Brian Shaw drew up in the…

  14. Monday night NBA grades: Tony Parker can still carve up a defense

    Feb 4, 2014, 2:16 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v New Orleans Pelicans

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while realizing yes, the TSA employees are laughing at your body scans…. Tony Parker, San Antonio Spurs. The Pelicans are without Jason Smith for the rest of the season and that means New Orleans usually had Greg Stiemsma or Alexi Ajinca on the court —…

  15. Nuggets won’t reach out to Andre Miller, even after season-ending injury to Nate Robinson

    Feb 3, 2014, 10:44 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Denver Nuggets

    The Nuggets lost Nate Robinson for the season after he underwent surgery to repair an ACL injury on Friday, but even that apparently isn’t enough for the team to attempt to reconcile with Andre Miller. Miller is a veteran point guard who clashed with first-year head coach Brian Shaw over playing time, and served a…

  16. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Adam Silver signs the balls, Kevin Durant keeps shooting them

    Feb 3, 2014, 2:21 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Brooklyn Nets

    A look at PBT’s power rankings show basically the only thing that really changed this week was the signature on the Spaulding balls — Adam Silver’s signature is in play. Aside that Durant has the Thunder on top and the Lakers continue fall like the lead balloon they are. 1. Thunder (38-11, Last Week No.…

  17. NBA players react to Super Bowl on twitter

    Feb 3, 2014, 12:33 AM EDT

    SUPER BOWL XLVIII DENVER BRONCOS VS. SEATTLE SEAHAWKS

    NBA players spent their Sunday afternoon the way you did — watching the Super Bowl with their friends, families and co-workers. They just tended to do it in much larger houses. Here is the reaction from around twitter, starting with Seattle native and Seahawks fan Nate Robinson. https://twitter.com/nate_robinson/status/430164922714959873 https://twitter.com/nate_robinson/status/430172840550084610 Caption with that picture: “I’m just…

  18. Terrence Ross destroys Kenneth Faried on transition dunk (VIDEO)

    Feb 1, 2014, 1:31 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Denver Nuggets

    That. Is. A. Dunk. The Raptors’ Terrence Ross got a steal and was off in transition. To his credit, Denver’s Kenneth Faried got back and went for the block. He ended up in Terrence Ross’ poster. One of the dunks of the year.

  19. Nuggets’ Nate Robinson has ACL surgery, out for season

    Jan 31, 2014, 10:31 PM EDT

    Nate Robinson

    Ugh. Another exciting player to watch down for the season. Denver’s Nate Robinson had surgery to repair his torn ACL in his left knee on Friday and he is done for the season, the team reported Friday. “It’s always tough to see one of your players go down with an injury,” Nuggets General Manager Tim…

  20. Denver’s Nate Robinson has sprained ACL, could miss some time

    Jan 30, 2014, 4:15 PM EDT

    Nate Robinson

    Nate Robinson had started for the Nuggets on Wednesday with Ty Lawson out, but he only played six minutes against the Bobcats when he seemed to tweak his knee, but then he jogged back to the locker room under his own power so it didn’t seem like much to worry about. But he didn’t return…

  21. Report: Philippines wants to naturalize JaVale McGee, Andray Blatche before World Championships

    Jan 30, 2014, 12:07 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Boston Celtics

    Because the JaVale McGee, Andray Blatche pairing worked so well before in Washington…. The FIBA World Cup (what you used to call the World Championships) is coming to Spain this summer and the Philippines team will be there, having qualified as the No. 2 team in FIBA’s Asia tournament (behind Iran, surprisingly). The Philippines were…

  22. PBT Extra: PBT does its own Rising Stars Challenge draft; plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Jan 30, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Cleveland Cavaliers

    The NBA announced the field for the Rising Stars Challenge, but the teams won’t be selected until next week. A sucker for any opportunity to hold a mock draft, I enlisted Kurt into holding our own. We followed the same positional rules whoever picks the teams on TNT next Thursday – the general managers have yet to…

  23. Nate Robinson previews Super Bowl using pineapple in snow-covered parking lot

    Jan 29, 2014, 1:29 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors

    Nate Robinson, unabashed Seattle fan living and playing in Denver, was in a grocery store buying a pineapple and that became him on Instagram predicting what the Super Bowl will look like by throwing around the old pineapple skin in the snowy parking lot of said grocery store. I couldn’t have made that up if…

  24. 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…

  25. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Durant powers Thunder to top slot

    Jan 27, 2014, 3:29 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant

    No Russell Westbrook yet Kevin Durant has pushed the Thunder to the top of the West and the top of PBT’s weekly power rankings. Still strange to see the Celtics and Lakers near the bottom of the poll, but it’s where they belong this season.   1. Thunder (35-10, LW 4). Kevin Durant is making…
