Recap of the first game of the season

Recap of the first game of the season

Locked on Nuggets podcast Well that opening night didn’t got as planned. In this episode, Adam Mares recaps the opening night loss to the Jazz and shares his three biggest takeaways including Wilson Chandler’s struggle to draw fouls, Will Barton's hot streak, and Nikola Jokic losing the big vs little battle to Joe Johnson. Jokic not making an impact down the stretch was disheartening for most fans, and issues with the Nikola Jokic-Paul Millsap DHO are things that can be addressed as the Nuggets get more comfortable with their roster. That needs to happen sooner rather than later, but...

Denver Nuggets Tweet of the Week: Wilson Chandler shouts out JaVale McGee for going vegan

Denver Nuggets Tweet of the Week: Wilson Chandler shouts out JaVale McGee for going vegan

Wilson Chandler shouts out a former teammate for his new dietary choices The Tweet of the Week is once again from Wilson Chandler and it is once again related to veganism. It sounds like quite a few players are now opting to go vegan, including one former Denver Nugget that I'm sure we all remember, and Chandler has taken notice. This isn't that shocking, considering JaVale McGee has always come across as very health oriented. I'm sure most Nuggets fans remember his often-used hashtag #JugLife, encouraging fans to drink a jug of water a day to stay properly hydrated. McGee...

Russell Westbrook and the Thunder test Denver’s mettle

Russell Westbrook and the Thunder test Denver’s mettle

Locked On Nuggets Podcast In this episode of the Locked On Nuggets podcast, I recap Denver’s 96-86 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder in the final preseason game of the year for the Nuggets. I begin by discussing Wilson Chandler’s heroics on the defensive end this season. In the preseason minutes he’s played, Chandler has been Denver’s multi-tool on the defensive end, guarding some of the biggest scoring threats and providing focused and effective help side defense. I also talk about the point guard rotation tonight and share what head coach Michael Malone had to say about it after...

Denver Nuggets Tweet of the Week: Wilson Chandler rejects the 'McVegan'

Denver Nuggets Tweet of the Week: Wilson Chandler rejects the 'McVegan'

The tweet of the week comes from Ill Will who is clearly not a fan of McDonalds' Vegan hamburger. This week's Tweet of the Week is brought to you by McDonald's and Wilson Chandler. Most Nuggets fans know by now that Chandler is a vegan and has been for over a year now. He maintains a very strict diet in order to feel healthier on and off the court. So, with the news that McDonald's has introduced the 'McVegan,' I'm sure many were curious to hear what Chandler's reaction would be. Would he be quick to try it out or would he reject the idea immediately? Well he responded on Twitter and it...

Game Thread: Denver Nuggets at Los Angeles Lakers - October 4th 2017

Game 2 of the best-of-seven...wait: preseason? The Denver Nuggets look to maintain their perfect preseason and continue to tune up the roster tonight with a rematch against the Los Angeles Lakers. None of the four established starters will play, but Jameer Nelson re-enters the lineup. Wilson Chandler (hip), Gary Harris (shoulder), Nikola Jokic (elbow), and Paul Millsap (rest) will not play in tonight’s game. #Nuggets— Chris Dempsey (@chrisadempsey) October 4, 2017 This Nuggets team will be quite different from the one we’ve seen so far this preseason, and players like Malik...

Video: Nikola Jokić makes first ridiculous pass of the year

Video: Nikola Jokić makes first ridiculous pass of the year

Magic Jokić at it again. The first half of the first preseason game went about as well as one could expect against the reigning NBA champion Golden State Warriors. The Denver Nuggets got up and down the floor, Paul Millsap took some time to get acclimated, and Nikola Jokić made a ridiculous pass. Toward the end of the half, Jokić caught the ball at the elbow, drove to the paint, and acted like he was going to spin. Little did the Warriors know that Wilson Chandler was cutting to the rim, and mid-spin, Jokić flipped the ball over his shoulder to the cutting Chandler for an easy basket....

Malone: the best players will play, wants a nine man rotation

Michael Malone gave his first insights on the rotation the Denver Nuggets may use this season. During Denver Nuggets media day, head coach Michael Malone provided his first insights on the starting lineup and the rotation. In an interview with Vic Lombardi earlier today, he stated that four of the five positions in the starting lineup are cemented. Gary Harris as the shooting guard, Wilson Chandler as the small forward, Paul Millsap as the power forward, and Nikola Jokic as the center. He was adamant that the point guard position would be an open competition, citing it as “a very...

Media Day Nuggets: Hernangomez and Chandler at backup power forward

The backup power forward position just keeps getting more crowded Several nuggets of information from the Denver Nuggets Media Day will be released as we hear them here on Denver Stiffs. One of the early interesting ones is that head coach Michael Malone would like both Juancho Hernangomez and Wilson Chandler to get playing time at the backup power forward position behind starter Paul Millsap. Malone says he wants to play Juancho at backup 4 this year a lot. Likes Wilson as a stretch 4 as well.— Adam Mares (@Adam_Mares) September 25, 2017 This is not unexpected, as both men are...
