The Nuggets might have found THE most excruciating way to lose – a fantastic feat of failing, impressive in the methodical way it played out.
Denver ceded a game-ending 9-0 run – all points on free throws, including one following a Michael Malone technical foul – in a 109-108 loss to the Hawks tonight.
Dennis Schroder made the first seven throws of the run, and Paul Millsap added the game-winning free throws with six seconds left. Did Atlanta benefit from shaky officiating on some of those calls? There’s a case. The two-minute report will be interesting.
But did the Nuggets also self-destruct? Yup. They went scoreless on their final five possessions after taking a 108-100 lead with 1:43 left, and Malone lost his composure when his team couldn’t afford it.
Warriors’ Draymond Green yelled like crazy on plane while watching son’s birth via FaceTime
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) — Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green says he watched the birth of his son via FaceTime.
Green was on the airplane in New York headed to San Francisco on Thursday morning when his son, Draymond Jamal Green , was born. He recalls yelling from his first-class seat on the commercial airplane after the birth and people thought he was “crazy,” adding it was a “surreal experience.”
Green spent the day with his newborn son and his girlfriend, Jelissa Hardy, in California before rejoining his team for Friday night’s game against the Detroit Pistons.
The forward had the option of staying home, but says it would’ve been selfish to accept the offer because his son and girlfriend were healthy and his teammates have kids of all ages they leave behind for games.
