Denver Nuggets Have Had Bad Luck At The Buzzer This Season?

Mavericks Kyrie Irving’s stunning half-hook, half-dive shot over Jokic gave Denver the win Sunday in Dallas. “I saw Kyrie Irving hit a quick hook to the left elbow. We were on both sides,” Nuggets coach Michael Malone said after Sunday’s game. “We won games at the buzzer and today we lost the game at the buzzer. Let’s give them credit. Let’s give Kyrie credit. There are a lot of things we can do differently.

Earlier, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander drove and hit a pull-back jumper over the outstretched. The arms of Peyton Watson to give the Thunder a one-point victory in December. 16. It’s too early to say, but it’s a hard blow for the Western Conference standings. The Thunder led the Nuggets by a half-game after Tuesday’s game at Minnesota, and that shot helped the Thunder win the season series against Denver 3-1 and earn a tiebreaker if the teams could finish the regular season.

There were also some near misses along the way that could have changed Denver’s record. On Nov. 8, the first Warriors-Nuggets meeting of the season, Klay Thompson had a chance to force overtime but missed his shot before the buzzer. A few days later, Jokic made a three-quarter layup that could have tied the game in Houston, but he saved his beautiful bucket for the big play.

Since the start of 2024, Denver hasn’t missed two late shots that could have changed the outcome, when Jayson Tatum missed in the final seconds of the January game. Boston’s 19 gave the Nuggets a big road win.

Jamal Murray was drafted in January out of Orlando. 5. Denver called a timeout with 10 seconds left and Murray started the transition with five seconds left. He beat a defender into space. But, drew two more and had to hit his floater twice, hitting the glass and the edge of the buzzer.

Then, on March 5, the Nuggets called a timeout with four seconds left to tie the game and beat the Suns. Jokic took a pass down the left wing, faked a handoff to Murray and headed to the baseline for a running floater that bounced off the rim. Phoenix won in overtime. With a bit of boisterous luck, the Nuggets went on an easy 13-game winning streak after the All-Star break. The NBA can’t wait to bring Victor Wembanyama back to Paris, but it has to.

The Rookie of the Year and the Spurs announced Sunday that they plan to attend NBA games in Paris next season. With the Summer Olympics in France this summer, the NBA would try to bring Giannis Antetokounmpo to Athens, Nikola Jokic to Belgrade or Luka Doncic to Ljubljana. Maybe it’s a little too much imagination. The only cities that have hosted regular season games as part of the NBA World Series in the last 20 years are Paris, London and Mexico City.

With any luck, Wemby will be the face of the NBA soon, but not yet. The Spurs’ export game had to wait several seasons before the NBA prioritized its current crop of European superstars. The best the Nuggets can do is a few preseason games against the Celtics in Abu Dhabi. This is not enough.


“Sometimes I spend an hour working on the left side.” Kyrie Irving said after Sunday’s game-winner.”You need to have a lot of goals as a small guard.” And since the time I was a young child, I have been doing it.”

Although Nuggets coach Micheal Mcconnell acknowledged Irving’s gesture, he was dissatisfied with his team’s performance on the court as Dallas prevailed 60-37 in the decisive game. “I believe the date was coincidental.” Malone remarked, “I mean, I can’t remember the last time we were up 22,” following Dallas’ 22 offensive rebounds that converted the lead into a second opportunity. into a 23-6 advantage.
