Kenneth Faried Game-Winner After Nuggets Comeback

Kenneth Faried, Draymond Green

We didn’t know how loose the Nuggets were playing until we saw them at Oracle Thursday night on TNT. The Warriors needed a home win a lot more than the Nuggets needed a useless road victory, but while the Dubs played stiff while giving up a big second half lead, the Nuggets were loosey goosey in a surprise, 100-99, win. Kenneth Faried‘s game-winner with 0.5 seconds left is what put the Nugs over the top. Read More »

Andre Iguodala, Quincy Miller

This was a sequence you might have seen on the And-1 Mixtape Tour 10 years ago when fans would faint from the feints and bedlam would erupt by the dribbling chicanery of Hot Sauce. Except this was Andre Iguodala performing a double-crossover on Quincy Miller during an NBA game. Miller was so thoroughly bamboozled by Iggy, he was left grasping at air and falling on his face.

Kevin Durant

The Thunder took down the Nuggets last night, 117-96, despite 2014 MVP (we’re giving it to him early, sorry), Kevin Durant, shooting just 1-for-7 from beyond the arc. Regardless of his struggles form deep, he was 9-of-14 everywhere else for 27 points, eight dimes and two steals. But it was his annihilation of Darrell Arthur that made our jaw drop as he crossed him up twice before driving for the and-1 bucket off the glass. Read More »

But as Miller tells Marc J. Spears at Yahoo Sports, he was “made out to be the bad guy, the villain…” Read More »

Timofey Mozgov, Josh Smith

There was a time before Blake Griffin unleashed a dunk on him that, “threw down their spears, / And watered heaven with their tears,*” when Timofey Mozgov was simply a doofy Russian 7-footer playing center in the NBA. But since that fateful day, he’s become synonymous with poster jams (Brandon Knight knows his pain). Last night, with Detroit visiting Denver, Mozgov turned the tables and let Josh Smith know the verb of his last name works both ways. Read More »
