  3. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Spurs set the bar while Pacers fall like a rock

    Apr 7, 2014, 3:13 PM EDT

    Greg Popovich

    The Spurs have solidified themselves atop the NBA — if your team is going to win an NBA title they need to clear that bar because the Spurs aren’t coming back to the pack.

  4. Timofey Mozgov’s revenge (sorry, Josh Smith)

    Mar 20, 2014, 12:08 PM EDT

    Josh Smith, Timofey Mozgov

    Timofey Mozgov, most famous for getting dunked on by Blake Griffin, can dunk a little bit himself. Just ask Josh Smith. This wasn’t totally Smith’s fault –  who was Greg Monroe defending on that pick-and-roll? – but there’s no coming back from that. Smith was ejected later in the game.

  5. Ty Lawson breaks Jodie Meeks’ ankles, drops him with crossover (VIDEO)

    Mar 8, 2014, 12:30 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Because the Lakers haven’t been embarrassed enough lately… That is Jodie Meeks just getting dropped by Ty Lawson‘s crossover during the Nuggets 134-126 win over the Lakers Friday night in a real defensive struggle. Lawson threw a series of moves at Meeks and got him off balance before dropping the hammer (then making the dish…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  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. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. The Extra Pass: Why D’Antoni is the right man for the job; plus Sunday’s recaps

    Jan 6, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni and Dwight Howard react on the sidelines as the Lakers trail the Los Angeles Clippers, and after Howard fouled out of the game, during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    You may consider this curious timing to take up for Mike D’Antoni, considering his Lakers just gave up 137 points at home to a Denver Nuggets team that can best be described as “meh.” Believe it or not, though, pulling the wool over your eyes isn’t my intention here. Let’s be truthful: D’Antoni’s teams really…

  12. The Extra Pass: The nightmare that is LeBron James; plus Monday’s recaps

    Dec 24, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Miami Heat

    You know those nightmares where you can’t run away fast enough? The ones where your legs turn to mush and the baddy behind you keeps gaining ground? That’s a recurring nightmare for lots of people, but it’s a recurring reality for Atlanta Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer. Budenholzer was on the sidelines with the San…

    Dec 5, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Kirk Hinrich

    I have this odd vision for the future of the NBA, and in it everyone looks like Kirk Hinrich. Well, everyone doesn’t actually look like Kirk Hinrich, but all the players are wearing goggles nonetheless. That’s not just because they look cool and I think Hinrich is the undisputed king of accessorizing, and it’s not…

  14. The Extra Pass: Chemistry clicking in Denver as Nuggets beat Nets to win seventh straight, and Tuesday’s recaps

    Dec 4, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    brook lopez joe johnson kg

    NEW YORK – If it was a fight, they would have stopped it. To say the Nuggets beat the Nets on Tuesday to earn their seventh straight win wouldn’t at all be an accurate description of how Denver came out and destroyed Brooklyn in the third quarter, and then continued the assault against a depleted and…

  15. Timofey Mozgov blocks Rudy Gay dunk attempt (VIDEO)

    Dec 2, 2013, 8:46 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets - Game Two

    You think what Blake Griffin did was easy? Timofey Mozgov can play a little defense — just ask Rudy Gay. The Raptors swingman went for the dunk Sunday and Mozgov said “I’m tired of being dunked on” and shut it down. Shut. It. Down. Denver went on to win the game 112-98.

  16. The Extra Pass: The Wild West, can Portland last, and Sunday’s Recaps

    Dec 2, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Denver Nuggets

    Let’s jump around the Western Conference with a few observations: Portland: 20 percent of the regular season is in the books, and the Trail Blazers hold the pole position in the Western Conference. It’s a great accomplishment and something absolutely no one expected, but the Blazers should come back down to earth soon enough. Wesley…

  17. Blake Griffin unsuccessful in his attempt to ‘Mozgov’ Roy Hibbert (VIDEO)

    Dec 1, 2013, 6:20 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Los Angeles Clippers

    Blake Griffin has a had a multitude of extremely athletic dunks that have humiliated defenders throughout his career, but the one he threw down over Timofey Mozgov is what most people point to as Griffin’s signature slam dunk highlight. Griffin tried to add Roy Hibbert of the Pacers to his posterization reel on Sunday, and…

  18. The Extra Pass: King of the Hill and Monday’s recaps

    Nov 19, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    Everyone has their spot. A guy like Charlotte Bobcats center Al Jefferson, for example, has gone to his spot with such frequency over the years that he’s  been deemed the “mayor of the left block.” No matter the opponent or teammates, you know where to find him on a nightly basis. LaMarcus Aldridge isn’t all…

  19. The Extra Pass: An early look at SportVU data and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 14, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Chances are at some point this season, you’ve heard about SportVU. For the uninitiated, SportVU is a player tracking software that utilizes cameras positioned around the court to collect all sorts of data. It’s a major breakthrough for analytics, and while a good portion of teams have had the software and data for a few years,…

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

    Nov 10, 2013, 3:35 PM EDT

    JaVale McGee

    The Nuggets have struggled their way to a 1-4 start to the season, and things just got worse with the loss of one of the team’s starting big men. #Nuggets C JaVale McGee has a stress fracture in his left tibia. He will be out indefinitely pending further evaluation. — Denver Nuggets (@denvernuggets) November 10,…

    PHOENIX – Markieff Morris complained in the Suns locker room following the team’s wild 114-101 win over the Nuggets on Friday, despite posting a career high 28 points which included the monster putback slam over Timofey Mozgov seen in the video clip above. Morris was one of the last players to leave, hitting the cold…

  22. 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…

  23. Report: Nuggets reach three-year deal to keep Timofey Mozgov

    Jul 26, 2013, 12:27 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets - Game Two

    Denver found its backup center — a guy already on their bench. The Nuggets have reached a three-year, $14 million contract extension with Russian center Timofey Mozgov, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. The third year is a team option. Mozgov played a very limited role for the Nuggets last season as the third center…

  24. Report: Kings may consider run at Timofey Mozgov

    Jul 17, 2013, 5:26 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    Don’t go too far here, there will not be a bidding war for Timofey Mozgov. That might be a sign of the apocalypse. But apparently there are a couple of teams interested. Sacramento wants another big off the bench and is considering trying to get the Russian center to sign an offer sheet, reports the Sacramento…
