If you’re looking to check some of the younger and lesser known talent in the NBA, plus see some wire to wire FUN basketball action. You definitely should be checking out the Nuggets vs. Warriors. This series will be a lot of fun. The irony in that statement is that Saturday’s game was won by the old man on the court, Nuggets 37-year old veteran, Andre Miller. Miller has never been known for speed and quickness, he’s not going to overpower a player with strength but he will get all into the head of the opposing player and hit you those moves that only the “old guy” would be able to take over a game with.
Kinda like Uncle Drew but not so elderly. Check two of the most exciting plays from the Nuggets win over the Warriors. First up, Javale Mcgee dunks on Andrew Bogut.
Watch Andre Miller win the game. The score was tied with 14.5 seconds left and out of nowhere, Dre creates a shot for the Nuggets win.

Stephen Curry did whatever that he could to help the Golden State Warriors steal Game One of their playoff series from the Denver Nuggets.
Playing on the Nuggets homecourt, Curry hit a dramatic game-tying three-pointer with just a few ticks left on the clock.
It was not enough to force overtime as the Nuggets relied on Andre Miller to drive into the paint and layup the game-winner...
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.
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 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.
Watch out Andrew Bogut! JaVale McGee is charging into the lane and he is looking to put you on a poster with this massive dunk.
37-year-old point guard, Andre Miller, had a huge Game 1 against the Golden State Warriors, contributing 28 points (11-16), 5 assists and 3 rebounds off the bench. The veteran took over the game down the stretch, eventually coming through in the clutch as he hit a game-winning layup over Warriors rookie forward, Draymond Green, to give Denver the 97-95 home victory and a 1-0 series...
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 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.
Check out JaVale sending the ball down...
McGee is starting to figure it out
When McGee head is on in the right place, can be a dominating player on both ends of the court. He takes Andrew Bogut’s cornbread (or was it his Chipotle) with this Dunk.
