Top Aaron Gordon News

  • Nuggets' Aaron Gordon: Disappears in second half

    Gordon finished with 15 points (5-11 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 5-8 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal in 40 minutes during Wednesday's 102-98 loss to Golden State.

    Gordon appeared on his way to a big game with 15 first-half points, but he wasn't able to scratch in the third or fourth quarters. Inconsistency was a theme for the forward throughout the series, as he scored just 15 combined points on 6-for-19 shooting over the first two games before bouncing back with three straight double-digit scoring efforts over the final three contests. Gordon registered the highest field-goal and free-throw percentages of his career during the regular season and averaged 15.0 points per game, his highest mark since the 2018-19 campaign.

  • Nuggets' Aaron Gordon: Bounces back with double-double

    Gordon chipped in 18 points (7-13 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 12 rebounds, four assists and one block across 34 minutes during Thursday's 118-113 loss to the Warriors.

    Gordon struggled massively in the first two games of the series, but he bounced back here and posted his first double-double since April 5. The Nuggets will need Gordon to be at his best in a decisive do-or-die Game 4 on Sunday, so he'll need to carry the momentum from Game 3 because his series numbers are downright poor. He's averaging just 11.0 points and 7.3 rebounds per game while shooting 40.6 percent from the field and 25 percent from three-point range.

  • Nuggets' Aaron Gordon: Struggles again Monday

    Gordon registered seven points (3-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt), five rebounds, three assists and one block over 25 minutes during Monday's 126-106 loss to the Warriors.

    Gordon was Denver's second-leading scorer with an average of 15.0 points per game during the regular season, but he hasn't been able to get going during the first two games of the playoff series. The veteran forward is averaging just 7.5 points and 5.0 rebounds while shooting 31.6 percent (6-for-19) from the field over the pair of contests. The Nuggets have lost both games, so Gordon may need to step it up if his team has any chance of competing with the talented Warriors.

  • Nuggets' Aaron Gordon: Will be rested Sunday

    Gordon (hamstring) will be held out of Sunday's game against the Lakers, Harrison Wind of DNVR Sports reports.

    The Nuggets will withhold Gordon, Nikola Jokic, Monte Morris and Will Barton from Sunday's contest as they build some extra rest with the postseason just around the corner. Gordon will end the regular season on a high note, having averaged 19.0 points (57.4% FG), 7.3 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.5 threes over his last 11 appearances.

  • Nuggets' Aaron Gordon: Questionable Sunday

    Gordon is questionable for Sunday's game against the Lakers due to left hamstring management.

    Gordon is one of four Nuggets starters who could sit out during the finale. He's scored in double digits in 12 straight games, with averages of 18.6 points, 6.8 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 32.5 minutes.

  • Nuggets' Aaron Gordon: Puts up double-double

    Gordon notched 18 points (8-16 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 13 rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal over 35 minutes during Tuesday's 116-97 loss to San Antonio.

    Gordon couldn't continue a scoring streak that saw him notch 20 or more points in three of his previous four appearances, but he did a good job on the glass en route to his first double-double since March 10 in a loss against the Warriors. He's now scored in double digits in 11 straight games and is averaging 18.3 points in that span.

  • Nuggets' Aaron Gordon: Logs second straight 24-point total

    Gordon finished with 24 points (9-14 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds, three assists and one block in 37 minutes during Sunday's 129-118 win over the Lakers.

    Despite a few hiccups in March, Gordon entered Sunday's contest on a great run, averaging 16.6 points, 5.9 rebounds and 2.4 assists over his past 10 games. Gordon should be pumped to put in work with a contender, as he only made two playoff appearances over his seven years with the Magic, and only won a total of two playoff games.

  • Nuggets' Aaron Gordon: Excellent all-around effort

    Gordon accumulated 21 points (9-16 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, one block and two steals in 33 minutes during Monday's 113-109 victory over the Hornets.

    Gordon ended just three boards shy of posting what would've been his first double-double since a March 10 win over the Warriors, but that doesn't take anything away from the fact that he's been playing well of late. The former Magic forward has scored at least 20 points in three games in a row and in four of his last six contests.

  • Nuggets' Aaron Gordon: Narrowly misses double-double

    Gordon racked up 20 points (8-17 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, one assist and one block across 35 minutes during Saturday's 113-107 victory over Oklahoma City.

    The 26-year-old served as an important sidekick to MVP candidate Nikola Jokic on Saturday, finishing second on Denver behind the All-Star center in both points and rebounds. Gordon logged a team-best plus-24 during his time on the court and fell one rebound shy of his first double-double since March 10. He's stepped up his scoring of late with three games of 20-plus points over his past five contests.

  • Nuggets' Aaron Gordon: Fills up stat line

    Gordon chipped in 16 points (5-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 5-5 FT), seven rebounds, six assists and one block across 30 minutes during Tuesday's 127-115 victory over the Clippers.

    Gordon has enjoyed a nice run of production lately, averaging 16.3 points, 6.3 rebounds and 3.7 assists over the past three games. His six assists in Tuesday's win marked Gordon's third-best total of the season in that category.

  • Nuggets' Aaron Gordon: Scores 20 points in loss

    Gordon totaled 20 points (9-15 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 2-5 FT), eight rebounds, five assists and one block across 35 minutes before fouling out of Friday's 119-116 overtime loss to the Cavaliers.

    Despite not connecting on any of his three-point attempts, Gordon still managed to score 20-plus points for the second time in March and the 13th time this season. He also finished with at least eight rebounds and five assists in the same game for just the second time during the campaign. However, the forward also committed seven turnovers and fouled out, so it was far from a flawless performance. Across nine appearances in March, Gordon has averaged 13.2 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 30.1 minutes per game.

  • Nuggets' Aaron Gordon: Dealing with non-COVID illness

    Gordon is questionable for Wednesday's matchup against the Wizards due to a non-COVID illness, Harrison Wind of TheDNVR.com reports.

    Gordon was quiet during Monday's win over the 76ers, but it's unclear if the aliment was impacting his performance. If he's sidelined Wednesday, Austin Rivers, Davon Reed and JaMychal Green (wrist) would all be candidates for increased roles.

  • Nuggets' Aaron Gordon: Registers double-double in loss

    Gordon logged 10 points (2-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist and one block over 32 minutes during Thursday's 113-102 loss to the Warriors.

    Gordon struggled mightily as a shooter against the Warriors, converting just 2 of 11 field-goal attempts. However, he went 5-for-6 from the charity stripe and grabbed 11 boards to finish with his first double-double since Feb. 16. Gordon appears locked into around 30 minutes per night, but he is producing a modest 14.1 points, 5.2 boards, 2.0 assists and 0.7 three-pointers per game since the All-Star break.
