There was the Warriors allowing Danilo Gallinari, who had missed his first 10 shots of the game, waltz clear down the lane for a game-tying and second-overtime-forcing dunk with a foul to give.

Golden State’s Andris Biedrins Doesn’t Even Tickle The Twine With This Airball

Golden State’s Andris Biedrins showed us last night against the Lakers why he’s a career 50% free throw shooter. No leg lift, then comes the short-arm form and he doesn’t even tickle the twine with this effort. Keep in mind, the guy is a 7-footer and the ball only went this far. The Lakers won 101-77 and Mike Brown lost his coaching job. A solid day all around.     Filed under: Video
