  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. NBA Trade Deadline Tracker: All the trades, rumors, analysis, fun in one place

    Feb 20, 2014, 3:00 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Brooklyn Nets

    It’s the one day on the NBA calendar you know is going to be like a roller coaster — rumors are going to fly, deals are going to appear close then fall apart, complete fabrications will fascinate a fan base who will then blame a GM for not making them reality, and in the end…

  6. John Wall on LeBron: “I don’t think he is a big dunk contest person”

    Feb 15, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Washington Wizards

    John Wall is stepping up his game. He admitted Friday when speaking to the media before the All-Star Saturday Dunk Contest that in games he holds back — his fear of missing and embarrassing himself makes him go the safe route rather than to show off. Saturday night he’s in the dunk contest and he…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. Damian Lillard splits Denver defense, then throws it down. Hard. (VIDEO)

    Jan 24, 2014, 8:44 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Portland Trail Blazers

    Denver is not exactly a good defensive team, they miss JaVale McGee or anyone who might protect the rim. Damian Lillard took advantage of that Thursday night with a monster dunk. Denver’s players had a front row seat for what was the dunk of the night. Portland went on to win 110-105.

  11. Andre Drummond runs back on offense with Pistons still on defense

    Jan 7, 2014, 9:00 PM EDT

    Andre Drummond

    If JaVale McGee gets a hard time for this: Andre Drummond deserves a little chastising for this. (hat tip: commenter ProBasketballPundit for the video) Amar’e Stoudemire squares up shoots a jumper with 9:58 left in the second quarter of Tuesday’s Pistons-Knicks game. Drummond runs out to contest it. Then, Drummond backs away as the shot is…

  12. PBT NBA Power Rankings: At the quarter pole Portland takes the lead

    Dec 9, 2013, 4:53 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Golden State Warriors

    The general rule of thumb is 20 games into the season you can start to really trust the stats and the trends — in which case it’s good to be a Portland Trail Blazers fan. They move into the top slot with their recent wins over Indiana and OKC. 1. Trail Blazers (17-4, Last Week…

  13. 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…

  14. DeAndre Jordan’s monster rejection of Russell Westbrook (VIDEO)

    Nov 22, 2013, 10:03 AM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan

    There is no more athletic center in the NBA than DeAndre Jordan (maybe JaVale McGee, it’s close). He’s fast and leaps out of the building. Which why he has some spectacular blocks, like this one on Russell Westbrook Thursday night. Best part of this? Jordan didn’t swat it into the third row, rather it stayed…

  15. PBT NBA Power Rankings: San Antonio slides into top slot

    Nov 18, 2013, 1:56 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    Another season, another year of the Spurs just making teams pay with their execution. Portland is flying up the rankings, on the other end Utah continues to anchor the bottom.   1. Spurs (9-1, Last Week No. 2). The winners of seven in a row, they move into the top spot as they appear the…

  16. 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…

  17. Report: Nuggets shoot down Iman Shumpert for Kenneth Faried trade

    Nov 13, 2013, 6:08 PM EDT

    Kenneth Faried

    UPDATE 6:08 pm: The Kenneth Faried for Iman Shumpert talks are dead, at least according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, who tweeted this: Denver has made it clear to Kenneth Faried’s reps: There are no active talks involving him. Knicks offered Shumpert. Denver rejected idea. Of course, if you were trying to negotiate a…

  18. J.J. Hickson throws down the big-time jam over Marvin Williams (VIDEO)

    Nov 11, 2013, 10:17 PM EDT

    hickson dunk

    J.J. Hickson got the start for the Nuggets on Monday in place of the injured JaVale McGee, and at least early on, he made sure that his impact on the game would be noticed. Hickson elevated and threw down the two-handed jam over Utah’s Marvin Williams, in a play sure to make highlight reels everywhere…

  19. PBT NBA Power Rankings: It’s the Pacers, Spurs then everyone else

    Nov 11, 2013, 2:21 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Brooklyn Nets

    David Stern’s nightmare Finals matchup is on top of the second PBT NBA Power rankings — Indiana and San Antonio. Lots of shifting still going on in the rankings as teams shake themselves out just a couple weeks into the season, but a few patterns are emerging. 1. Pacers (7-0, Last Week No. 1). Yes…

  20. JaVale McGee diagnosed with stress fracture in left leg, out indefinitely

    Nov 10, 2013, 3:35 PM EDT

    JaVale McGee

He will be out indefinitely pending further evaluation. — Denver Nuggets (@denvernuggets) November 10,…

  21. Nuggets head coach Brian Shaw unhappy with lack of energy from rotation players following loss to Suns

    Nov 9, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Brian Shaw

    PHOENIX – The Suns improved to 4-2 on the young season with a 114-103 win over the Nuggets on Friday, in a contest that saw some extremely wild swings in both score and momentum before the night was through. The first half was all Phoenix, as they followed up a 35-point first quarter by holding Denver…

  22. 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…

  23. DeMarcus Cousins was in beast mode, dropped 30 and 14 in opener (VIDEO)

    Oct 31, 2013, 11:28 AM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins, Nate Robinson

    DeMarcus Cousins got his max extension, and while some questioned the move the questions were not about talent — he can be the best center in the league in five years (or less) if he wants it. Wednesday night he showed that off against the Nuggets, dropping 30 points and pulling down 14 rebounds on…

  24. Ty Lawson will play for Nuggets in opener at Kings

    Oct 30, 2013, 4:38 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets Lawson celebrates a three-point shot against Golden State Warriors in their NBA Western Conference quarter-final basketball playoff in Denver
