NBA Preseason Recap: Denver Nuggets vs. LA Clippers in Vegas
By: Helen Yee @HelenYeeSports
As a local in Las Vegas, one of the highlights for a basketball enthusiast is when the Nuggets and Clippers travel here to play one of their final preseason games. Last year, the Clippers managed to get the win over the Nuggets in overtime, and finished the game 118-111. This year, the Nuggets were not going to let history repeat itself. They defeated the Clippers with the final score of 104-93 on October 18, 2014. With over 8,000 fans in attendance, Saturday night was "game on" at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.
The game started out strong for LA as they developed an early seven point lead. The Clippers were clearly the crowd favorite judging by the audience's cheers each time they scored or saw one of Blake Griffin's dunks. However, late in the first quarter, the Nuggets quickly came from behind with a 16-2 run. They were able to tie the game at halftime where both teams scored 51 points. Once the third quarter began, the momentum shifted in favor of the Nuggets. Moments later in the third quarter, Denver eventually developed a 13-point lead.
The Nuggets continued to play strong throughout the fourth quarter. They displayed good defense and were able to get more rebounds than the Clippers. LA was unable to come no closer than seven points in their comeback attempt. Still, they continued to miss open layups and their small forward, Matt Barnes, noticeably under performed throughout the game. The Clippers were not diving for loose balls, had poor ball movement, and continued to make sloppy plays. As a result, the Nuggets were able to get the win over their opponent's lackluster performance.
Though the Clippers lost in this annual preseason matchup, there were no injuries reported during the game, which is always a great thing when the season is starting less than two weeks away. One thing is for certain, the city of Las Vegas got the chance to enjoy watching the teams' superstars up close and at the end of the day, did anyone really lose?
Top Three Players of the Night:
Perhaps the most valuable player of the night was Kenneth Faried. He posted 19 points and seven rebounds. Arron Afflalo's 16 points and good defense, combined with Randy Floye's five assists also contributed to their team's win.
Leading the LA Clippers was Blake Griffin, who powered his way to finish with 27 points. Chris Paul just missed a double-double with 13 points and nine rebounds. The reigning Sixth Man of the Year, Jamal Crawford, ended the game with 23 points and two steals.
Overall Differences:
Denver Nuggets outperformed the LA Clippers as they accumulated twelve steals in the game compared to six from the Clippers. Denver also had thirteen turnovers to nineteen for the Clippers.
Notes about the Clippers bench:
-Matt Barnes played 28 minutes of the game, yet finished without scoring a single point. He missed all nine of his field-goal attempts, including six of them from the 3-point range.
-J.J. Redick did not play.
-Joe Ingles was the small forward starter for the Clippers. He played 19 minutes, yet managed to have collect more fouls than points. He had four personal fouls and only three points.
Notes about the Nuggets bench:
-Shooting guard Randy Foye scored 14 points, four rebounds, and five steals.
-J.J. Hickson played 14 minutes and finished the game with ten points. It should be noted that despite his setback caused by a torn ACL, he made a significant impact from the Nuggets' bench and proved he was back. He helped the Nuggets surge past the Clippers.
-JaVale McGee did not play.

Clay Baker's Tales For The Curious


As we approach Halloween, I'd like to deliver a daily reminder on the scary side of life with a collection of stories that should send you a shiver with my "Tales For The Curious".


"Play Misty For Me"

My very first overnight shift was at an Oldies station in Lansing, Michigan. Just before I went on, the jock before me gave me a piece of advice I never forgot. Jim Stone told me, "Women will call up here, wanting song requests but most of all it's just to talk. The ones who want to meet up afterwards are all scary and the cute ones are even scarier, so beware." Did I listen to him? Of course not.

In "Play Misty For Me", Clint Eastwood plays a bachelor DJ who took one request too many; putting him on a collision course with a psycho listener that should make you THINK TWICE about meeting fans after the show. The seemingly, harmless caller is played by the rather hot, Jessica Walters. She is alluring and seems fine, just a little lonely, right? Wrong. It's a classic movie that hits home to every man or woman that's ever worked in Radio. It also marks Clint Eastwood's Directorial Debut and features a yummy Donna Mills and tons of Carts. You probably don't even know what that means but that's why it ranks and starts us off on Clay Baker's Tales For The Curious.

Katy Perry stopped by ESPN's College GameDay on Saturday and had some fun. Not only did the pop star go six for six on her game day picks, but she also gave a special shout out to Oklahoma's QB Trevor Knight. On the show today we asked listeners if Trevor may have had to much Katy on his mind, because of his horrible performance in the game. What do you think? Was Knight not focused in the game? Check out the video below.

Audio: Snoop Dogg's Newest Bishop Gorman Track Proves Rap Is A Young Man's Game


Sad To See Such A Great Rapper Fall, & Then There Is Flavor Flav...
Photo via: Rap-Up


Oh how the mighty have fallen.

Check out Snoop Dogg's latest track for our hometown Bishop Gorman Gaels. It's quite different from his very first studio album "Doggystyle" which was released in 1993 (NSFW), and just happens to be my favorite album of all time. Snoop collaborates with another Vegas local, Flavor Flav to basically shout "Yea Boiii" over and over again.

The intention is good I suppose. I can't wait until Gorman starts blasting this song at home games.
