Like a bird stalking its prey, Torrey Craig slowly closed in on James Harden while the league’s leading scorer turned towards the basket and surveyed the floor. As Craig began to venture further and further away from Russell Westbrook, who he was matched up with this Rockets’ trip down the court and towards Houston’s top offensive option, Harden’s eyes darted…...

Jamal Murray delivered the dagger with 1:46 to play. As the shot clock was winding down, the Nuggets’ 22-year-old point guard took two dribbles to his left, stepped sideways to create space, got Steven Adams to bite on a pump fake and flicked in a 3. The shot stretched Denver’s lead to double digits and capped what Nuggets coach Michael…...

How many NBA players play with more confidence than Jamal Murray? It’s a short list. That confidence was oozing out of Murray’s pores Friday in Oklahoma City where the point guard with the quickest heat check in the league lit the Thunder up for a cool 27 points on just 20 shots and swished a 28-foot dagger with 1:46 remaining in…...

Wind recaps the Nuggets’ win over the Oklahoma City Thunder, how Denver managed to keep Paul George in check, Nikola Jokic expanding one aspect of his offensive game and why the Nuggets’ small ball bench unit may be cause for concern. Also, a reflective Will Barton’s speaks postgame about the victory, his defensive performance and a trying season. DON’T FORGET…

The Nuggets have the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference in their sights. Behind 36 points, nine rebounds and 10 assists from Nikola Jokic, the Nuggets held off a furious fourth-quarter rally from the Oklahoma City Thunder and Paul George to win 121-112 in front of a sold-out crowd and a nationally televised audience. Denver led by 13 at…...

There aren’t any Russell Westbrooks in the NBL, Australia and New Zealand’s National Basketball League where Torrey Craig cut his teeth for three seasons before arriving in Denver two summers ago. Still, Craig has never looked overmatched against the former league MVP in any of the five games that the Thunder and Nuggets have played against one another since the 6-foot-6…...

It was a meaningless preseason matchup, the fifth exhibition game and final tune-up for the 2017-18 regular season that was a week away. Denver and Oklahoma City’s starters would play maybe 20 minutes, get a quick sweat in, find their chemistry and get off the floor without any injuries. Russell Westbrook had other plans that evening. On the Thunder’s third…...

Earlier this week, Nuggets coach Michael Malone said he stopped looking at the NBA’s last two minute reports altogether. On Sunday, the last two minute report released following Denver’s narrow win over the Dallas Mavericks, concluded the officials made an incorrect call when they tagged Nikola Jokic with a charge late in the game. The blown call gave the Mavericks…...
