As previously noted here on That NBA Lottery Pick, we are huge fans of killer crossovers and earlier today, Toronto Raptors DeMar DeRozan had a nasty one against the Denver Nuggets.
Watch as Mr. DeRozan sends Evan Fournier to the deck with a nasty cross move:

Last night’s NBA action featured three games on the schedule. Let’s take a look at the NBA’s top plays of the night.
The Los Angeles Clippers lost to the defending NBA champion Miami Heat 102-97 Thursday night. Blake Griffin was red hot, scoring 27 points on 11-of-15 shooting and grabbing 14 rebounds. He punished the rim on this left-elbow corner dunk surrounded...
After a very tough start to his season going 2-14 in his first two games, Evan Fournier finally found his stroke last night going 5-10 (2-3 3PTM) for a 12/3/2 line in a season high 25 minutes. If you’re like me, you’re a Fournier virgin in all leagues. Sure he’s way off the map (I don’t know where France is!), but I have a feeling he could surprise later on in the season...
The last time the Atlanta Hawks beat the Denver Nuggets at the Pepsi Center was on Dec. 6, 2006. Tonight, that streak stayed alive. The Nuggets, and first-year head coach Brian Shaw, won their first game of the 2013-14 NBA season in a 109-107 thriller over the Hawks on Nov. 7th.
In the first 1:17, Randy Foye committed two fouls–this immediately hurt the Nuggets...

When Evan Fournier's name was announced as Denver's 20th pick of the 2012 NBA draft, many in Nuggets Nation were baffled as the shooting guard from France wasn't a household name. Even though he appeared in 38 games for the Nuggets last season and shot over 40.7 percent from three point land, not many people around the league took notice either.
"I knew absolutely...
Derrick Rose has averaged 21.7 pts and 4.5 assists in his return from last season’s ACL tear.

The NBA season is almost upon us so that means that JaVale McGee is here to entertain us whether on or off the court.

The fine folks at For The Win wanted to see just...
The Denver Nuggets' JaVale McGee and Evan Fournier dominate voice impressions of the Mario Kart video game characters.
Here’s we go.
JaVale McGee, who sets new marks for weirdness (in a good way) off the court, is still mastering the ins and outs of the NBA game. In at least one other game, though, he has nothing left to prove.
McGee and Nuggets teammate Evan Fournier showed off their extensive catalog of Mario Kart noises, from “Okie dokie!” to “Let’s a-go!” Check it out in the Instagram...

We already loved Denver Nuggets center JaVale McGee for his ability to climb the invisible ladder and dunk from half-court without jumping forward, but this could catapult him to legendary status.
As the headline suggests, McGee and teammate Evan Fournier uploaded a video of themselves making Mario Kart noises. I don’t know why it exists...
If you have played Nintendo’s Mario Kart, then you’ll know that these sounds by Denver Nuggets goofballs JaVale McGee and Evan Fournier.
If you have never played Nintendo’s Mario Kart, then you will have to accept my word that these sounds by Denver Nuggets goofballs JaVale McGee and Evan Fournier sound exactly like the game.

Nuggets guard Evan Fournier has three ages — his real age (20 years old) his NBA age (second season) and his professional basketball age (fourth season).
It's the professional basketball age he's most worried about.
As Fournier sees it his two years in the French Pro A league in addition to his rookie NBA season are an advantage in his NBA development putting him at a...

Evan Fournier ended his rookie season as the starting shooting guard for the Denver Nuggets and he could very well find himself in the same role this season. The Nuggets signed Randy Foye in the offseason and many expect Foye to be named the starter. However, thus far in preseason...
