5 Biggest Mistakes the Denver Nuggets Made This Season

After Wednesday's loss, which dropped them to a 32-40 record, the Denver Nuggets are officially eliminated from the playoffs for the first time since the 2002-03 season.

Clearly the Nuggets would be having a much better season had they not suffered injury after injury. It was also expected to be somewhat of a transition with first-year head coach Brian Shaw and general manager Tim Connelly now in charge.

Because of this, saying this was an up-and-down season is an understatement. The Nuggets put together a seven-game winning streak early on and also won six of seven in January, but they also lost eight in a row at the end of December and dropped 11 of 12 surrounding the trade deadline.

Nevertheless, there were several mistakes made over the course of the season—on and off the court. Perhaps had these not been made, Denver would have a realistic shot at grabbing one of the final playoff spots.
