Video: Kobe Returns, Puts Up Triple-Double In Win

Kobe Bryant

After missing the last four games to rest his 36-year-old body, Kobe Bryant returned last night to help the Lakers defeat the Nuggets, 111-103. LA isn’t very good, and we’ve spent a lot of time analyzing how Kobe handles all the losing — particularly when the Lakers looked so good without him against the Warriors last week. Kobe added another wrinkle by posting a triple-double to help the Lakers win in his return to the court. Read More »

Lou Williams Makes Sure To DAP Road Raptors Fan

Louis Williams

The Raptors have claimed eight of their last 10 games after beating the Nuggets 116-102 on Sunday in Denver. Toronto’s lethal Louis “Lou” Williams off the bench has been particularly accurate with DeMar DeRozan down. Sweet Lou poured in 31 on Sunday, but he also made sure knock hands with every Raptors fan who made it out to the Pepsi Center. Read More »

GIF: Manimal Coast-To-Coast Euro-Step During Franchise-First 26 Points & 25 Boards

Kenneth Faried

Never before has a Denver Nuggets player scored 26 points and ripped 25 boards in the same game. Kenneth Faried, saying after the game, “My back wasn’t tight. I felt loose and limber, like I was playing back at USA Basketball,” didn’t get a single call played for him on the night, but his incessant grit on the glass led to those numbers as he helped a sometimes withdrawn Nuggets team to a 106-102 win against the visiting ‘Wolves. No play summed up Faried’s purposefulness and unique athleticism more than a coast-to-coast jaunt that ended with a deft euro-step for the lay-in. Read More »

Video: Arron Afflalo’s Game-Tying 3-Pointer At The Buzzer Wasted In OT Loss

James Harden, Arron Afflalo, Dwight Howard

It’s not often a team is tasked with taking the ball out from under their own basket with only 3.7 seconds in regulation, down by three. Usually they’d advance the ball. Also, this gives the winning team time to foul and avoid a game-tying 3-pointer. Except, Patrick Beverley failed to foul Ty Lawson in time as he sprinted across half-court and found Arron Afflalo for the game-tying three-pointer at the buzzer last night in Denver. Read More »

John Wall, Wilson Chandler

John Wall had 12 dimes in 28 minutes in Washington’s dominating 30-point win over the Nuggets in Washington, 118-89. He also had a pair of blocks, including one rejection of Wilson Chandler right at the rim. His fall after the swat, wasn’t very comfortable for Bradley Beal, though. Read More »

Video: Simple Terry Stotts Play Gives Blazers Last-Second Win Over Nuggets

J.J. Hickson, Robin Lopez

The headline probably should have included Robin Lopez, the Blazers center who put in a layup to give Portland a 105-103 advantage with 1.3 seconds remaining last night. The Blazers held on to win, but all anyone wanted to talk about was the brilliance of Portland coach Terry Stotts and his ATO (after timeout) play-calling. Read More »
