MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- The Memphis Grizzlies have been the talk of the NBA in the opening weeks of the season, with ferocious defense, tenacious rebounding and deep bench play leading to a franchise-tying eight-game win streak. The streak is over, though, because the Denver Nuggets did all of the above in a 97-92 victory over the Grizzlies Monday night at the FedExForum.

He had 13 of his 15 points in the second half and also grabbed 11 rebounds. The Nuggets (4-7) were led by Danilo Gallinari, who scored 26 points. Kenneth Faried was the only other starter in double figures with 13. Gallinari made two huge plays in the game's final 90 seconds, making a steal and eventually converting it for a three-point shot and a four-point Denver lead. Memphis (8-2), losing for the first time ...

With a talented offensive cast around him, he does not necessarily have to shoot all the time. He can just look for any missed shots by his teammates...

What you’re about to see is a pretty strong right-handed dunk from Rudy Gay, but you basically knew that already. So, I’d like to bring some attention to the remarkable play that made this whole sequence possible. It’s actually kind of subtle, and I didn’t notice it the first time I watched the video, but once I did see it I nearly stood up from my chair and started clapping...

I’ve witnessed plenty of heated exchanges between NBA players that include verbal barbs, choking, throwing ‘bows, hugging, even a few brawls, but I can’t remember a time when I saw another man pull another man’s hair. Like ever. Somehow, someway Tony Allen, during Monday night’s Memphis Grizzlies-Denver Nuggets game, pulled Kenneth Faried’s hair and looked [...]The post...
