NO TIME FOR HIJINKS
Sunday night’s NBA slate featured a hotly contested match-up between the Denver Nuggets and Oklahoma City Thunder, and as the game tightened late, Nuggets mascot Rocky attempted a couple no-look half-court shots during breaks in the action.

The Miami Heat have signed Chris "Birdman" Andersen to a 10-day contract. He played in only 32 games for the Nuggets last season.
“Probably simple and solid,” Karl said, when asked what he tells McGee most. “I think he tries to be spectacular. Basketball is a game of possession after possession of doing things the right way, doing your job and letting the spectacular come. I think JaVale tries to find the spectacular and forces the spectacular when if you just let Andre Miller and Ty [Lawson], let us...
Russell Westbrook got the Denver fans going Sunday night when he blocked Rocky, the Nuggets’ mascot’s, halfcourt shot during a timeout:

The Oklahoma City Thunder are squaring off against the Denver Nuggets in Denver, Colorado, and unlike their first meeting of the season last week, the Nuggets are going toe-to-toe with Kevin Durant and company.
