Every morning, we will give you five things from the night before in the NBA to start your day.
1: Closing time
The Warriors and Nuggets played a yo-yo battle that went for two overtimes that at times seemed like a comedy of errors. 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. There was the Warriors taking a five-point lead in the second overtime only to see it quickly disintegrate.
The Nuggets won 107-101 in double overtime, but afforded the Warriors a valuable lesson in closing games. Golden State did not do its job to score the win and the team's young players had to bear those lessons.
That is not something the Warriors are too unfamiliar with. Already this season Golden State played tight games against Phoenix, Sacramento and the L.A. Clippers. Last year, the Warriors led the league in games decided by six or fe...
BEST OF MAXIM
JUST A BIT SHORT
Take a look at the horrible free throw attempt by Warriors' center Andris Biedrins Friday night. Biedrins is the worst free throw shooter in the NBA right now.Biedrins is so afraid to get on the free throw line that he tries to avoid contact as much as possible when he has the ball in his hands on offense. The only reason he is playing right now is because Andrew Bogut is out...
Big men have always had trouble with free throws, and Golden State Warriors center Andris Biedrins is no exception.
Suffice to say it was an interesting weekend for the 7-foot, Latvian-born 26-year-old. On Friday night against the Lakers, Biedrins somehow managed to not only miss a free throw, but miss the basket entirely, airballing the attempt by a good foot.
The next night...
Earlier in the week on That NBA Lottery Pick, we posted a clip of Lakers center Dwight Howard airballing a free throw against the Utah Jazz.I personally thought that it would be the worst free throw of the year but Golden State's Andris Biedrins will take that award.Watch as he misses this free throw in the first quarter against the Lakers last night:
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.

There aren’t too many things that can embarrass a guy who is dressed in basketball shorts and a tank top and plays in front of thousands of people. But Andris Biedrins missing the rim on a free throw would be one of those things. Now think, he’s a professional, a [...]
But he rules Latvian discotheques
OAKLAND -- Despite playing for the fourth time in five nights, the Denver Nuggets stored up enough energy to score the final 11 points of the second overtime and stun the foul-shooting-plagued Golden State Warriors 107-101 Saturday night at Oracle Arena. Andre Iguodala and Dalino Gallinari buried 3-pointers on successive possessions as the Nuggets, down 101-96 with just over two...
Denver's Danilo Gallinari has struggled to find his shooting rhythm this season. Two big plays against Golden State could be just the thing to get him going.
Gallinari scored on a tying slam dunk late in the first overtime, then scored five of his 21 points in the final 36 seconds of the second as the Nuggets closed with an 11-0 run to beat the Golden State Warriors 107-101...
