If this continues, they might as well give Denver Nuggets big man JaVale McGee his own YouTube channel. Because it sure seems that the talented young man makes these kind of amazing plays on the court with alarming regularity.
During Thursday night’s game against the Philadelphia 76ers at Pepsi Center in the Mile-High City, McGee put on an astounding display of athleticism during a play that began with him snatching the ball right out of midair for an incredible shot-block but then adding an impressive dish down on the other end of the court.
Wow. While he rarely fills up the stat sheet, there is no denying this JaVale McGee kid has some mad skills, man. How about the little scoop-dish to Anthony Randolph. For a big fella, he’s awfully nimble.
Even better for the Nuggets, the team extended its franchise-best winning-streak to 14 games, courtesy of squeaking by with a 101-100 win over the Sixers. Happy times in Denver, indeed.

The Denver Nuggets are the team to watch outside of the Miami Heat and Los Angeles Clippers; no team plays more exciting ball then these guys. They proved it Thursday night with an incredible come from behind win against the Philadelphia 76ers.
Key in that win was a pair of blocks by Kennetth Faried and JaVale McGee.
Faried's was more of an incredible athletic play...
The Nuggets will be without forward Wilson Chandler and probably point guard Ty Lawson for their game against the Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday night when Denver goes for its 14th straight victory.
Chandler and Lawson were injured in the Nuggets' 114-104 win at Oklahoma City on Tuesday night. Chandler separated his left shoulder and Lawson bruised his right heel.
Denver Nuggets' Kenneth Faried and JaVale McGee built a impenetrable forcefield around the rim last night, blocking shot on top of shot.
The Nuggets’ franchise record 13-game winning streak appeared to be coming to an end when the Sixers went up by eight with two minutes remaining in Thursday night’s game at Pepsi Center, but Corey Brewer wouldn’t let that happen. Scoring a career-high 29 points off of the bench, Brewer drained a three-pointer with ten seconds remaining to bring Denver within two, and then on...

YouTube.com At this rate, Jim Ross should just call NBA games. Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins all but buried Denver Nuggets forward Anthony Randolph on Saturday night.

Like DeAndre...
