How the New York Knicks’ sweetheart got its nickname.
The Nuggets got their nickname because of their sweet tooth, which is evident in their past few championships.
This year, the team won its first three games in a row, then scored a season-high 88 points on Friday night to defeat the Charlotte Hornets.
They had never won a game that started with a three-pointer in their history.
In the history of the NBA, there have been just five seasons in which the Denver franchise won consecutive games: the 1995-96 Nuggets, the 2000-01 Nuggets, and the 2010-11 Nuggets.
The franchise won back-to-back titles in 1997-98 and 2002-03, and then won back again in 2007-08 and 2008-09.
“When you look at what we have been through, we’ve had so many losses in this city, so much adversity and everything, and we’re trying to take it one day at a time,” Nuggets forward Wilson Chandler said.
The Nuggets finished with a record of 34-31, which was good enough for fourth place in the Western Conference.
They’ll face the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday night, while the Nuggets play the Utah Jazz on Tuesday night.
A couple of other Nuggets players are playing with their new team: forward Emmanuel Mudiay and guard Jusuf Nurkic, who were teammates in Greece.
Nurkic will be the first of the team’s new players to wear the jersey.
He’ll wear it with the rest of the Nuggets on Sunday.
Drew Miller and D.J. Augustin were both named All-Stars in the first game of the playoffs.
Miller had 21 points, 12 rebounds and three assists, while Augustin had 18 points, 10 rebounds and four assists, including a game-high 11 rebounds.
Both players were part of the Knicks’ All-Star team, along with the Nuggets’ D-League team.
But their teams were not in a playoff position.
It was a bittersweet season for both teams, but the Nuggets were the favorites.
There were some tears from the sidelines as the Nuggets lost the first two games, then won three of the next four.
Chandler had a tough year, playing in just 11 games after getting injured and then missing the entire season with a broken foot.
Mudiay had a nice season with the Denver D-Fenders.
After playing for the Portland Trail Blazers, Mudiai signed a four-year, $44 million contract with the NBA’s Denver Nuggets in the summer of 2020.
Now he’s the face of the franchise.
When you watch him play, he’s just like any other guy, he loves basketball and he loves his team.
“He just wants to win.
He wants to be the best, he wants to put the ball on the floor and he wants the ball to go in the basket.
He just loves winning,” Nuggets assistant coach Steve Smith said.
“He’s a very special player and he’s a great teammate.
He’s going to be a big part of this team.”
