Denver Nuggets Team Info
The Nuggets have had their Rocky Mountain highs and have had their valley lows during their stint in the National Basketball Association started in 1977. The team has made it into the postseason tournament on 15 occasions and they have advanced to the Western Conference Finals once in 1978. In that series the Nuggets lost in six games by a mark of 4-2. The team's most memorable playoff series came in came in the first round of the Western Conference. The Nuggets finished the season with a 42-40 record which earned them the number eight seed and a first round match up. The opposition, led by the dynamic duo of Gary Payton and Shawn Kemp, easily took the first two games of the series and looked like they were going to sweep the Nuggets out. The Nuggets then won the next two games and forced a game seven. They were led by superstar center Dikembe Mutumbo who blocked a playoff record 31 shots in the five game seried and pulled off history by winning with a final score of 98-94 and being the first number eight seed to beat a number one seed. The most memorable moment came after the game when Mutumbo was laying on his back under one of the baskets holding the ball over his head and looking like he was going to burst into tears. The Nuggets went on to the next round and almost came back from a 3-0 series deficit but fell short in the final game and lost the series 4-3.
Last season the city of Denver caught a fever that it hadn't caught since the last time the Nuggets made it into the playoffs in 1995. The team hit the jackpot when they drafted Carmelo Anthony. Picking up Anthony along with the acquisitions of Andre Miller and Earl Boykins proved to be the best moves the Nuggets had made in a long while. The team finished the season with a 43-39 record, a 26 game turnaround from the year before, and a playoff berth. The team was the eighth seed. The Nuggets gave it their all and fell short in the end losing the series 4-1. Anthony was the main reason for the turnaround in Denver and the city was a buzz because of it like it never had been before.
