    Initial exam suggests that Nuggets F Danilo Gallinari has likely torn his ACL. He will have an MRI Friday. (via Yahoo! Sports)

    I think that's it for the Denver Nuggets, they wont make it past the 1st round without Gallinari!. I pity this very talented and exciting team!...

    Sad news. Time for chandler iggy and brewer to step up. Hopefully he can recover soon.

    Just when they're starting to look formidable.

    Another disappointing, 1st round exit awaiting for this team. Probably will reach the 2nd round, but that could be the farthest they can get.

    With Lawson already hurting, this is a huge blow for the Nuggets.

    Along with the Grizzlies, Nuggets have the potential to be a playoffs spoiler in the West.

    I was hoping to see an OKC vs. DEN series in the second round.

    NBA: Nuggets come from behind to drop Spurs to second place
    April 11, 2013 1:17pm

    The Denver Nuggets turned up the pace of the game after a disjointed first quarter, to power through to a win over the San Antonio Spurs, 96-86, Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time), at the Pepsi Center, in Denver, Colorado.Denver extended two win streaks, picking up their fifth in a row, and their 21st at home, to 54-24, while San Antonio dropped to 57-21.

    The Nuggets kept in step with the Los Angeles Clippers, who had also won today, to remain two games ahead in the third seed. The Spurs on the other hand knotted the Oklahoma City Thunder in the standings, but tiebreakers wound up giving OKC the top spot in the West.

    San Antonio took an 18-11 lead after the first quarter, as the Nuggets shot a miserable 21.7 percent from the field, but the home team made up for it in the second, making half of their 24 attempts, to take a 38-37 lead into the break.

    The Spurs showed that they too could burn the nets, with 50 percent shooting in the third, but the Nuggets one-upped them by making 13-of-22, or 59.1 percent, led by Wilson Chandler's 5-of-6 clip for 12 markers.

    Up six, 69-63, with a quarter left to play, the Nuggets uncorked a 13-0 run to begin the fourth, establishing an 82-63 advantage with 8:08 left to play.

    The visiting side got some clutch production from their reserves, as DeJuan Blair and Gary Neal pulled their team within nine, 88-79, with 3:06 remaining. The duo then combined for a mini 8-3 run, to trail by just five, 91-85, with 1:33 left, giving the Spurs some hope.

    Unfortunately for San Antonio, they would miss their next four shots, while scores by Chandler, Corey Brewer, and Andre Iguodala, pushed their lead back to 10, before the final buzzer sounded.

    With Danilo Gallinari ruled out for the rest of the season, Wilson Chandler and Corey Brewer did admirable work filling in for them, with Chandler scoring a game-high 29 points on 11-of-20 shooting, and Brewer not far behind, firing in 28 on a 12-of-25 clip.

    Andre Iguodala notched a triple-double of 12 points, 13 rebounds, and 10 assists, while Andre Miller, filling in for Ty Lawson, managed 12 markers as well, plus five assists.

    The Spurs got 17 apiece from Tim Duncan and Gary Neal. DeJuan Blair added 12 points and five boards off the bench, while starters Danny Green and Tiago Splitter managed 10 each.

    Denver ruled the boards, 53-43, and hit at a better clip from downtown, 6-of-15, versus 4-of-21. - AMD, GMA News

    Nuggets clinch third place in the West, demolish Suns
    April 18, 2013 10:14am

    The Denver Nuggets clinched the third place in the Western Conference, with a 118-98 demolition job of the worst team in the West, the Phoenix Suns, Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time) at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado.

    The Nuggets improved to 57-25, and enter the playoffs riding a three-game win streak. A loss would have opened the door to the Los Angeles Clippers moving up in the standings. The Suns on the other hand ended their season with a 25-57 record. They were 33-33 during the lockout-shortened 2011-12 season, the last with Steve Nash.

    Beginning with a 14-4 run, Denver took charge of the game early, and stretched their advantage to 35-20 at the end of the first period.

    It was 66-40 entering the intermission, thanks to 57.1 percent shooting by the Nuggets, and though the Suns managed to out-score their foes in the third, 29-25, they were still down 91-69, allowing Denver's third-stringers: Anthony Randolph, Timofey Mozgov, Jordan Hamilton, Quincy Miller and Evan Fournier, to close things out.

    Wilson Chandler scored 21 points, one of seven Nuggets with at least 10 points. Andre Iguodala added 20 markers, five rebounds, five assists, two steals and two blocks, while Ty Lawson quarterbacked the squad with 14 points and seven dimes.

    Luis Scola led the Pacers with a double-double of 17 points and 11 rebounds, while PJ Tucker and Hamed Haddadi scored 14 apiece.

    Denver finished shooting 52.7 percent from the field, while their defense held Phoenix to a 38.5 percent clip. - AMD, GMA News

    Old man' Miller saves the Nuggets, beats the Warriors on the last play
    April 21, 2013 8:16am

    The most veteran player on either team came up with all the big plays late.

    Andre Miller connected on the game-winning lay-up with 1.2 seconds left to lift the Denver Nuggets over the Golden State Warriors, 97-95, Saturday (Sunday, PHL time) at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado, to take the first game of their best-of-seven Western Conference playoffs series.

    Off a Warriors timeout, Ty Lawson came up with a big steal on Stephen Curry off a double-team, the streaky floor general going all the way to the other end for the score and the three-point Denver lead, 95-92, 35.7 seconds left.

    The Warriors were forced to burn two timeouts after Jarret Jack nearly lost the ball, but on the second try, the Warriors found Curry in the corner, and he slipped past Lawson to bury a huge triple, tying the game at 95-all, 14.5 seconds remaining.

    However, it was the veteran Miller who made the difference, beating his defender, rookie Draymond Green, switching hands in mid-air, and using the hoop to protect his game-winning lay-up.

    The 37-year-old Miller finished with a game-high 28 points on 11-of-16 shooting off the bench, with three rebounds and five assists.

    The Nuggets boasted of a 28-25 lead at the end of the first quarter, but the Warriors found their groove in the second, holding the home team to just 26.3 percent shooting in the period, as Golden State went up 48-44 at the break.

    Baskets by Stephen Curry boosted the Warriors' lead to five, 53-48, 7:16 left in the third, but Denver's offense began to hum.

    Back-to-back scores by Wilson Chandler tied things up, 62-all. but after a Klay Thompson long two-pointer ended a quiet spell for the Warriors, Corey Brewer made double connections from downtown to close out the period, a 14-2 Denver run, to put the home team up 72-64.

    The hits kept coming for the Warriors at the start of the fourth, as David Lee got banged up on a lay-up try. Lee managed to split his free throws before leaving for the locker room, with diagnosis later identifying the injury as a right hip flexor strain. He would not return to the game.

    Golden State wasn't going away yet though. Seven straight by rookie Harrison Barnes and a pair of Carl Landry lay-ups got the Warriors within a point, before Ty Lawson ended the run with a jumper, 80-77. Andre Miller added a free throw, but scores from Andrew Bogut and Stephen Curry knotted the game at 81-all, 7:13 left to play.

    The Nuggets however regained their footing with eight unanswered, six from Andre Miller, 89-81, 4:41 remaining. Then it was the Warriors' turn to punch back, unleashing an 11-4 blast that made it a one-point game, 93-92, the Nuggets barely hanging on.

    Ty Lawson added 12 points, five boards and four dimes, Evan Fournier and Wilson Chandler managed 11 markers apiece, while Corey Brewer came off the bench for 10 points.

    The Warriors got a team-high 22 points from Klay Thompso, on 10-of-19 shooting. Stephen Curry bounced back from a slow start for 19 points and nine assists, while Andrew Bogut compiled nine points, 14 rebounds and four blocks.

    David Lee managed a double-double of 10 points and 14 rebounds before exiting.

    The Nuggets won despite an 18.8 percent clip from downtown, helped out by a 28-15 advantage in free throw attempts. - AMD, GMA News

    Nuggets lead from wire-to-wire, live to fight anew
    May 1, 2013 10:51am

    The Denver Nuggets lead from opening tip to the final buzzer, but needed to survive a late comeback try from the Golden State Warriors, before their 107-100 win was in the books, Tuesday (Wednesday, PHL time) at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado, to stay alive in their NBA playoffs series, down 3-2.

    The Nuggets needed a game-winner from veteran point guard Andre Miller, to win the series opener, 97-95, but they proceeded to lose the next three matches, 131-117, 110-108, 115-101, the last two in Golden State, thanks to Stephen Curry's hot hand.

    This time though, the Nuggets pounced early, as Wilson Chandler canned a triple for the first score of the game. Warriors rookie Harrison Barnes would get his side within a point, 12-11, but that would be the closest they would get. A 24-11 run by the home team put them on top, 36-22, after the first period.

    Two charities by Chandler late in the second period gave the Nuggets their first 20-point buffer, 63-42, with 1:35 before the halftime intermission. However, the Warriors came out of the break on fire, as 14-2 run, half of that courtesy of point guard Jarret Jack, got Golden State's deficit down to nine, 74-65, after Jack nailed a three-pointer with 5:02 left in the third.

    Denver swung back with 12 unanswered though, reviving their 21-point advantage, 86-65. Klay Thompson then managed a triple to close out the quarter, making it a 17-point game, 86-69, with 12 minutes still to play.

    The Warriors kept fighting back. A 15-7 run through the first half of the fourth canto, got them within single-digits anew, 93-84, following another Thompson trey, forcing the home team to sue for time with 6:39 left.

    Back-to-back hits by Stephen Curry, followed by a Jarret Jack jumper, put the score at 98-93, 4:15 still to play, as the Warriors threatened to steal this one. After a Festus Ezeli offensive foul, Andre Miller hit a fadeaway off a time out, which was matched by a Thompson make, 100-95, 2:16 left.

    The Warriors got a pair of looks from downtown, one each for Curry and Thompson, but both failed to connect. On the other end, Chandler showed them how it's done, draining a clutch trey to make it an eight-point affair with just 1:26 remaining, 103-95. Dunks by Andre Iguodala and Kenneth Faried then closed this one out.

    Six Nuggets finished with double-digit scoring, led by Andre Iguodala's 25 points, which came with 12 rebounds, seven assists, two steals and a block. Ty Lawson added 19 points and 10 assists, Wilson Chandler also scored 19, while Kenneth Faried put together a double-double of 13 points and 10 rebounds.

    Rookie Harrison Barnes top-scored for the Warriors with 23 points on 7-of-17 shooting, missing a double-double by a single rebound. Jarret Jack poured in 20, but turned the ball over six times, while Klay Thompson dropped 19.

    Stephen Curry was held to 15 points on 7-of-19 shooting and had five fouls to his name. He did dish out eight assists versus just two turnovers.

    The Nuggets came up with 12 steals, which contributed to 17 Warriors turnovers. - AMD, GMA News

    Nuggets' Masai Ujiri to be named Executive of the Year - report
    May 9, 2013 4:06pm

    Add another feather to the Denver Nuggets' cap.

    Though the team was unable to get out of the first round, its general manager, Masai Ujiri, is set to be named NBA Executive of the Year, the Denver Post's Benjamin Hochman reported, citing a source.

    Ujiri, who is "the first African-born general manager in major American sports," will be formally honored with the citation on Thursday (Thursday evening, PHL time) by the league.

    Voting is done by representatives from each of the 30 teams.

    Ujiri is perhaps best known for sending Carmelo Anthony to New York in February of 2011, getting players like Wilson Chandler and Danilo Gallinari in return, along with the Knicks' 2014 first round draft pick. This offseason, he dealt Arron Afflalo as part of a multi-team deal, snagging Andre Iguodala in exchange.

    The Nuggets went on to win a franchise-record 57 victories, good for the third seed in the West, along with another team-record, 38 home games.

    Nuggets head coach George Karl was previously named Coach of the Year, Wednesday.

    Unfortunately though, the Nuggets lost 4-2 to the Golden State Warriors in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs. - AMD, GMA News

    NBA Nuggets 'part ways' with Coach of the Year George Karl - Yahoo Sports
    June 6, 2013 11:21pm

    Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports reported on Twitter Thursday morning (Thursday evening, PHL time) that reigning Coach of the Year awardee George Karl will not be brought back for the final year of his contract by the Denver Nuggets, citing a league source.According to Wojnarwoski's source, "Karl was pushing for a contract extension and ownership wasn't prepared to give it to him." Karl actually led the Nuggets to a franchise-record 57 wins this past season, piloting them to the number three seed in the Western Conference.

    However, with forward Danilo Gallinari injured, the Nuggets were upset in six games by the Golden State Warriors.

    Karl's ouster continues a tumultuous offseason for Denver, which also saw reigning Executive of the Year Masai Ujiri leave his position with the franchise to sign a five-year deal with the Toronto Raptors.

    In the 2012-13 season, the Nuggets boasted of the league's third youngest roster, but still managed to lead the league in scoring, offensive rebounds, fast break points, turnover points, and points in the paint.

    After taking over for interim head coach Michael Cooper during the 2004-05 season, Karl stayed on board with the club for a total of nine campaigns, compiling a 423-257 regular season record that saw the team reach the postseason throughout his tenure.

    In the playoffs though, Karl's Nuggets were just 20-38, and moved past the first round just once, in 2008-09 when they made it to the Western Conference Finals.

    Prior to his exit though, Karl was the league's active coaching wins leader with 1,131 victories, good for sixth overall on the all-time list. - AMD, GMA News

    NBA Lionel Hollins, Brian Shaw leading candidates for Nuggets job
    June 14, 2013 10:30pm

    Lionel Hollins and Brian Shaw are the leading candidates for the vacant Denver Nuggets head coaching job, according to multiple reports.

    The Memphis Grizzlies recently parted ways with Hollins even though he guided them to the Western Conference finals with a 56-26 record and the number five seed.

    Shaw, who has been an NBA assistant coach, is regarded as an ideal fit for a young roster because of his approach. He also preaches defense. He is currently an assistant with the Indiana Pacers, who also worked with Phil Jackson previously as part of the Los Angeles Lakers' coaching staff.

    The Nuggets let George Karl go last week, despite winning NBA Coach of the Year after leading the team to the number three seed in the playoffs with a 57-25 mark.
