    MIAMI (AP) — The fallout from the scuffle between reigning MVP Nikola Jokic of the Denver Nuggets and Markieff Morris from the Miami Heat continued Tuesday when the brothers of the two players who starred in the dustup decided to take their anger to Twitter. Eventually, even one of their mothers apparently got involved in an effort to calm things down. The NBA undoubtedly will have more to say as well, with fines, suspensions or both likely to be announced before long. “It’s a situation that I think we’ll all learn from, not allowing emotions to get the best of us,” Nuggets coach Michael Malone said Tuesday. Emotions were clearly not under control Monday night. It all started late in the Denver-Miami game, shortly after the Heat ire was raised when no call was made after they thought Jokic fouled Bam Adebayo. Morris stopped play a few seconds later by intentionally crashing into Jokic from the side, a foul that referees called flagrant. Jokic then blindsided Morris with a hard shove from behind. Heat players were livid at what...
    (CBS4) – The Denver Nuggets grabbed a win against the Miami Heat Monday night, but it was Nikola Jokic’s foul on the Heat’s Markieff Morris that made post-game highlights and is drawing a big reaction on social media. Nikola Jokic of the Denver Nuggets hits Markieff Morris of the Miami Heat with a retaliatory blow after Morris bumped Jokic near mid court. (Photo by AAron Ontiveroz/MediaNews Group/The Denver Post via Getty Images) During the retaliatory play, Jokic slammed his shoulder into Morris’ back. He fell to the court and needed a team doctor to attend to him. Jokic was subsequently ejected from the game, as was Morris for his initial foul on Jokic. While the play itself received plenty of reaction, it’s Morris’ response on Twitter that has received some flack. I love to see the hate! No doubt I took a hard foul which I always do but I’ve never hit a man with his back turned! Luckily we built different over here. I can take my licks and keep pushing.

Support Us Early on, the COVID-19 pandemic seemed likely to result in the shortest sports season in Colorado history — under three months, from January 1, 2020, to the stretch in March when one event after another was canceled. In the end, though, plenty of athletic contests eventually happened, albeit in fits and starts, and always under a viral cloud, and sports created big news in other ways, too.

    It looks like there isn’t much love for Carmelo Anthony in Denver. The future Hall of Famer played the first 7 1/2 seasons of his NBA career with the Nuggets after being selected with the third overall pick of the 2003 NBA Draft. Denver had failed to reach the playoffs in each of the eight seasons prior to drafting Anthony; he led the team to seven consecutive postseason appearances, including the Western Conference finals in 2009 where they fell to Kobe Bryant and the eventual champion Lakers. Still, in spite of his contributions to the franchise, Anthony was noticeably absent from a tweet Friday in which the team asked fans: “Who is your favorite Nugget of all time?” In lieu of Anthony, pictured in the graphic are team legends Nick Van Exel, Dikembe Mutombo and Alex English, current superstar Nikola Jokic and newly named Clippers assistant coach Chauncey Billups. It’s understandable that Nuggets fans may have conflicting feelings about Anthony, who refused to sign a contract extension ahead of the 2010-11 season. There were rumors that he had requested a trade...

Anthony helped lead the Nuggets to the playoffs every year he was with the team, going as far as the Western Conference Finals in 2009, and pushing Kobe Bryant’s Lakers to six games. Anthony was voted to an All-NBA team four times with the Nuggets, and is third on the Nuggets’ all-time scoring list. To many, Anthony’s exclusion from the graphic was disrespectful, and fans stood up for Anthony on Twitter. ...
    News broke last week that Arsenal, the stacked-with-talent but notoriously disappointing English soccer team, is laying off Gunnersaurus, its beloved mascot. Jerry Quy, the man inside the herbivorous costume for the mascot's entire 27-year existence, found out on October 5 that he was getting axed by the franchise, which is owned by Stan Kroenke, Colorado's most prolific sports-team owner. Luckily for Gunnersaurus and his fans, star Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has publicly committed to pay Quy's salary for the remainder of Ozil's time with Arsenal. But what of Kroenke's other mascots? Particularly here in Colorado?Related Stories Stephen A.

    On March 11, when the NBA shut down its games in light of several positive Covid-19 tests and kicked off a rapid-fire series of events and news items that would trigger nationwide lockdowns, Denver Nuggets coach Mike Malone had a few words of wisdom for how he planned to spend his time away from the game:  “I’m probably going to drive up to WeldWerks Brewery in Greeley, Colorado, get some Juicy Bits, get on my mountain bike and figure out how we’re going to move forward,” he told the Denver Post and other media outlets at a news conference. Words of wisdom — and words that could have come from just about any Colorado resident with a penchant for local craft beer and getting outdoors. Weldwerks, after all, has become one of the state's most popular breweries over the past few years, based partially on its flagship, Juicy Bits IPA. The shout-out, of course, delighted the staff at Weldwerks, especially since the NBA and its arenas are so closely associated with the nation's familiar industrial light lagers, rather than craft...
    Social media went wild on Sunday night after Anthony Davis drilled his game-winning 3-point for the Lakers over the Nuggets.  The NBA world is still buzzing after Sunday night’s drama between the Los Angeles Lakers and Denver Nuggets. In Game 2 of the series, Denver looked like they were ready to even things up and put some pressure back on LA.
    The Phoenix Suns snagged tenth seed in the Western Conference playoffs after their Thursday match against the Indiana Pacers. They are currently the talk of the town because they are the only team by far, who has not lost a single game in the Orlando Bubble. They have to make it past the Portland Trail Blazers and Memphis Grizzlies to earn the play-in opportunity. The Portland Trail Blazers were on fire in their match against the Denver Nuggets. They achieved a franchise record of 23 three’s which led them to win with a score of 125-115. Damian Lillard led the scoreboard with a whopping 45 points and 12 assists. He tied with his own single-game record by scoring 11 three’s. Jusuf Nurkic also bagged 22 points against his former team, the Nuggets. Phoenix Suns show their support What makes NBA so interesting is not just the game but the banter that revolves around teams and their players inside and outside the court. One such incident took place when the Phoenix Suns showed their support for the Denver Nuggets in their...
    Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images NBA Twitter was horrified the Denver Nuggets drew up a last-second play for Troy Daniels. After being thoroughly beaten by the Miami Heat in their first seeding game, the Denver Nuggets really needed a victory in Monday’s followup game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. With the game on the line, the score knotted at 109 and 2.9 seconds left on the clock, the Nuggets drew up their game-winning play. Hardly anyone was expecting that play to revolve around Troy Daniels taking a potential game-winning floater. That’s right folks; with Nikola Jokic, Michael Porter Jr. Paul Millsap and Monte Morris all on the floor, the Nuggets’ last-second attempt found itself in Daniels’ hands, which resulted in a miss and overtime.No offense to Troy Daniels, but Twitter roasted the Nuggets for that decisionGoing with a diversion is one thing, but with Jokic being the team’s superstar and Porter having a career night with 35 points at that juncture, it was baffling that Daniels wound up getting the look. If Denver had needed a 3-pointer, setting something...
