Utah Denver

  1. JR Smith, giving the people their money's worth

    Apr 29, 2010, 9:37 AM EDT

    When Denver is eliminated after game six, I am really going to miss JR Smith’s monster dunks. (What, you think Denver will pull it together on the road and force a game seven? Okay. Sure. Do you still believe in the tooth fairy, too?)

  2. NBA Playoffs: Nene leaves game, appears to be done for season

    Apr 29, 2010, 8:25 AM EDT

    UPDATE 8:28 am: Sources told the Denver Post after the game that it looks as if Nene is done for the season. He will undergo an MRI today to confirm, but doctors with the Nuggets thought he tore the ACL in his left knee. 12:21 am: An inadvertent kick from Carlos Boozer has knocked Denver…

  3. NBA Playoffs: Nuggets limited by defensive execution, but also offensive scheme

    Apr 28, 2010, 12:58 PM EDT

    There’s no question that Denver’s inability to play defense is a big reason why they find themselves on the brink of elimination, but TrueHoop’s Kevin Arnovitz has discovered something of an oddity in the Nuggets’ deliberately inefficient offense: The Denver Nuggets have a secret arsenal of nearly unstoppable plays. There’s only one hitch headed into…

  4. J.R. Smith understands the lost art of irony

    Apr 26, 2010, 11:51 AM EDT

    Thanks to Internet snark (guilty, as charged), irony is dead. Or at least on life support in an Alanis Morissette world. But J.R. Smith gets it, the Denver sixth man is a master of irony. What else are we to take away from this post-game tweet by him yesterday? You play selfish you lose selfish…

  5. NBA Playoffs: Andrei Kirilenko thinks he can be back for game six

    Apr 23, 2010, 3:34 PM EDT

    It can’t last, can it? The Jazz can’t keep winning with nobody healthy left on the front line, can they? Well, yes they can. Their offensive system is a troublesome match for Denver. Doesn’t mean they wouldn’t mind the help. Andrei Kirilenko wants to be the cavalry. The Russian Cavalry in their Cossack uniforms, but…

  6. NBA Playoffs: Andre Kirilenko pushing to be back for second round

    Apr 21, 2010, 9:53 AM EDT

    At the rate the Jazz bigs have getting injured, fans of the team over 6’9″ should be worried about their health. That depleted size and depth up front will make things challenging against the physical front line of Denver in the first round of the playoffs, but the Jazz have hung in and the series…

  7. NBA Playoffs: Mehmet Okur leaves game with injury

    Apr 18, 2010, 12:42 AM EDT

    The Utah Jazz need another injury like the world needs another Starbucks. But it happened anyway. Starting Utah center Mehmet Okur re-injured the left Achilles tendon that has bothered him coming into the playoffs. He left in the second quarter, unable to put weight on his leg and being helped to the locker room, and…

  8. NBA Playoffs: Kenyon Martin, Carlos Boozer to face off in battle of the walking wounded

    Apr 16, 2010, 10:45 AM EDT

    You may want to take a couple aspirin just to watch these games. Maybe even that Vicodin you have stashed away in the medicine cabinet. (Oh, admit it, you refilled the prescription on that just to keep around in case, right?) The Utah Jazz vs. the Denver Nuggets is the series where the “last man…
