Late in the fourth quarter of the Rockets and Nuggets game on Wednesday night Andre Miller took alley-oops to a new level.

Long after most of his Denver Nuggets teammates had cleared the practice floor, Danilo Gallinari remained out there running a shooting drill he devised back home in Italy.
Each time he missed a shot during the back-and-forth exercise, Gallinari punished himself by starting over again. For 90 minutes, this went on and on.
It's simply his method for breaking out of a shooting...
