That NBA Lottery Pick:
It appeared to be turn back the clock night in Denver as 37-year-old Andre Miller helped the Nuggets to a game one victory over the Golden State Warriors with some late-second heroics.
With about five seconds left in the game and the score tied at 95, Miller was matched up with Warriors rookie Harrison Barnes and took him to the basket.
Watch as Miller makes a nice move to the cup and puts in the game-winning lay-up:
BEST OF MAXIM
It’s a shame one of theses teams had to lose this game because both teams battled from the beginning to the end, in what was an exciting game. Denver Nuggets veteran point guard Andre Miller was virtually unstoppable all game and with the score tied with 14.5 seconds to go, he put the team on his back.

Denver Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried said Sunday that he will play in Game 2 of the Nuggets’ first-round playoff series against the Golden State Warriors on Tueaday night. Faried sat out of the Nuggets’ 97-95 victory in Gmae 1 on Saturday with an ankle injury.
JaVale McGee doing JaVale McGee things. JaVale McGee reminded folks that he isn’t here to mess around. McGee threw down this monstorous dunk during the end of the second quater. The best part is McGee’s reaction to the dunk, throwing Bogut to the ground.
Behind the 28 points from Andre Miller and the game-winning shot, the Nuggets pulled off the thrilling Game 1 win, 97-95.
Denver Nuggets center Javale McGee’s athletic ability is off the charts. The question has just always been whether or not he has it all together upstairs as well. This dunk against Andrew Bogut of the Warriors shows that when he does have it together, the finished product can spectacular.
The 2013 NBA playoffs are underway and already teams are giving us tasty highlights to enjoy.
Case in point, Nuggets' JaVale McGee.
Late in the second quarter, with Denver down in the scoreboard heading into halftime, McGee gave his team some momentum heading into the half with one filthy dunk right over Warriors' Andrew Bogut.

The Denver Nuggets and Golden State Warriors will face each other in the 1st round of the West Playoffs, which should be a very high scoring series. Both teams are among the best in the NBA on offense and scoring, with multiple players on both teams who can score 20+ points on any given day. This will be a very exciting playoff series.
Yes the Nuggets have lost Danilo Gallinari,...
It only took the second game of the 2013 NBA playoffs to possibly have the best “poster dunk” of these playoffs. As you might figure, Denver Nuggets center JaVale McGee had something to do with it.
The play happened in the second quarter of game one between the Nuggets and the Warriors as McGee took a feed from Andre Igoudala and threw down a terribly nasty dunk on Andrew Bogut:
The playoffs are coming, which means NBA fans will be bombarded with talk about LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Durant. And with good reason. April, May and June are when true stars shine and pretend ones fade, and all three of those bona fide superstars have experience with both triumph and failure.
It takes more than one player to win a championship, however, and even James...
Denver Nuggets center JaVale McGee put Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut on a poster with this monster dunk.
The Nuggets are a better team than the Warriors. They’ve won 10 more games. They’re one of the hottest teams in the NBA over the last four or five months. And they dominate at home. I can see the Warriors pulling off the upset (out of the Spurs, Thunder and Nuggets, the Nuggets were the most favorable opponent), but there’s no denying the Nuggets are the superior team. Here...
G.S. Warriors (6) @ Denver Nuggets (3)
The Denver Nuggets are solid 60.9% favorites vs the Warriors in game one. The average score after 10,000 simulations is 109-106. The hot trend of the day is to take the points and Warriors on the spread. You’d get 8.5 points, and are expected to cover that 62% of the time. It’s probably safe to take the over on this game...

Forrest Gump would like this series a lot. Why? Because there will be lots and lots of RUNNING. The Nuggets and Warriors enter the 2013 Playoffs as sexy teams to watch out for, and this series will entertain, as well as bring some fresh names to the "Hey He's Pretty Good At Basketball!" table. In their four matchups this season...
Golden State at Denver
This might be the first round series I am looking the most forward to watching. The Nuggets with their style of play and killer home numbers makes them the most intriguing team in this whole field. I didn’t get a ton of chances to just sink right into a lot of their games during the regular season and cant wait to do so now that the playoffs have started...
