Twenty-three years later in the same city where his father Harvey patrolled Portland’s paint in the mid-90’s, Jerami Grant began his Nuggets tenure with a bang. The Nuggets’ summer acquisition shined in Denver’s 108-100 opening night victory over his father’s former club.

Paul Millsap couldn’t wait to get to Sin City this summer. It wasn’t the year-round pool weather, or craps tables that were summoning him to the Las Vegas Strip. Millsap wanted a front row seat at Thomas & Mack Center to see firsthand whether or not a certain Nuggets rookie’s talk was cheap. “Mike’s been talking all year, so…...

Wind and Clark recap the Nuggets’ loss to the Trail Blazers, and why Denver won’t be too upset about dropping this game. Are the Nuggets correct in trying to game the standings and avoid Golden State and Houston? Or is Denver angering the Basketball Gods in the process? Finally, thoughts on Gary Harris’ night, Torrey Craig’s continued campaign for 20-plus…

Despite never cracking the 1,000-minute barrier in any of his three seasons in Portland, Will Barton was the Trail Blazers' most dangerous player on the practice court.

Wind and Clark pour over the Nuggets’ 2018-19 regular season schedule, discuss some initial observations including Denver’s relatively manageable opening slate of games, its tough close to the season and name the one Western Conference playoff contender who’s postseason hopes took a sizeable hit Friday afternoon.

It wasn’t the prettiest performance from Nuggets star center Nikola Jokic Monday against the Portland Trail Blazers. It certainly wasn’t his most efficient either. Jokic shot just 5-14 from the field for 15 points and was bothered by former teammate and rival big man Jusuf Nurkic for much of the evening. But in winning time, with his team’s back against…...

DENVER — Seven games into Gary Harris’ rookie season, boos rained down on him and his Nuggets teammates at Pepsi Center. On that mid-November night in 2014, the Portland Trail Blazers rolled into Denver on the second night of a back-to-back and hung 84 points in the first half. It was an embarrassing effort in a season full of them.…...

More importantly, Denver took a 2-1 series lead over Portland—a team the Nuggets will likely battle for playoff positioning over the remainder of the regular season. Here's how each Nuggets player performed.

A cheerful Jusuf Nurkic strolled down the main corridor at Pepsi Center around 10:30 a.m. Monday morning, greeted a few familiar faces from the Denver Nuggets training staff and then proceeded further down the hallway towards the arena's visiting locker room for the first time in his four-year career. It's Nurkic first trip back to Denver since the Nuggets traded the disgruntled center to Portland last February.

Rounds one and two went to the Trail Blazers. Round three went to the Nuggets. Round four, which will take place at 7 p.m. Monday at Pepsi Center, will determine if Denver can pull even with Portland since the two sides made a major trade in February.

Harrison Wind and Christian Clark recap the Denver Nuggets’ two wins from this weekend and attempt to put their defensive uptick in perspective. How much of Denver’s success on that end of the floor has to do with their opponent just missing open shots and how much of it is actually the Nuggets’ defense? Was Nikola Jokic’s performance against Jusuf Nurkic and Portland just another good game or a significant step in his career? Will Emmanuel Mudiay return to Denver’s rotation on Tuesday when he’s expected to be in the lineup versus Utah? Will Nuggets coach Michael Malone stick with a shorter rotation? That and more on the Monday edition of the BSN Nuggets Podcast.

What Jusuf Nurkic's leg injury means for Portland's and more importantly the Denver Nuggets playoff hopes.
