Jamal Murray missed just just three of his 17 field goal attempts Saturday night. He misfired only twice on eight attempts from beyond the arc. But Murray’s most impressive play in the Nuggets’ 117-108 win over the Phoenix Suns didn’t result in an additional two or three points to the right of his name on Denver’s boxscore. Looking to put…...

Twenty four hours before the Nuggets tipped off Friday night in Milwaukee, Michael Malone declare the Denver’s come-from-behind victory over the Utah Jazz as “maybe” the win of the season. He had to amend that statement the following night. The Nuggets’ 127-115 win against the Bucks might not just be Denver’s best victory of the year. It may be one…...

Any win down three starters is a great win, and that’s how Sunday’s matchup against the Indiana Pacers was trending through three quarters. But in the fourth the Nuggets faltered. Indiana outscored Denver 41-26 over the final 12 minutes of regulation and the Pacers came all the way back from a double-digit third-quarter deficit to even score at 91-91 with…...

It was somewhat of a predictable bounce back performance. After an embarrassing loss Saturday at home to the lowly Cavs, the Nuggets looked like a different team 24 hours later against the playoff-bound Clippers. Denver hit its 3s, the Nuggets out-rebounded their opponent, and their defense locked in for key stretches across the second half. It resulted in a 114-104…...

The Nuggets used a combination of perfectly-executed double teams and strong team defense to beat the Houston Rockets in the two team’s first meeting earlier this season. Denver didn’t get either of those two things this time around in Houston. The Rockets trounced the Nuggets 130-104 to even the season series with Denver at one game apiece. James Harden led…...

Leading by 20 points in the first half and by 16 at the halftime break, the Nuggets looked to be cruising to an easy victory over the lowly New York Knicks. But then a third quarter transpired that the Nuggets and Michael Malone would like to forget. The Knicks outscored the Nuggets 33-20 in the third quarter and even led…...

It has become routine for the Nuggets to shower Gary Harris with a chorus of “First Team” in the locker room after some of Denver’s most impressive victories this season, championing the two-guard’s legitimate case for a spot on the NBA’s All-Defensive Team. Some of Harris’ individually defensive highlights this season include holding Luka Doncic to 12 points on 3…...

Michael Malone isn’t one for moral victories, but the Nuggets’ 108-95 loss Friday in Boston came with a big silver lining. Nikola Jokic, who’s been mired in the worst offensive slumps of his career, scored a season-high 30 points to go with 10 rebounds, four assists, one steal, and two blocks. Jokic shot an efficient 13 of 21 from the…...

Jamal Murray dribbled around a Nikola Jokic screen and took two hard dribbles with his right hand before riffling a one-handed bounce pass to Denver’s big man barreling towards the basket. For one of the few times in the Nuggets’ 105-96 loss to the Lakers, the Murray-Jokic pick-and-roll surfaced, and late in the fourth quarter a much-needed Jokic floater from…...

Coming off his worst outing of the season—a 1 of 11 performance from the field against the Nets—you had a feeling Jamal Murray wanted to bounce back with vengeance from a rare off night on the offensive end of the floor. He did just that in Memphis, scoring a season-high 39 points in just 31 minutes of action as he…...
