Poor Quincy Miller.

Given a chance to play meaningful minutes in the starting lineup due to all the injuries on the Denver Nuggets roster, Miller had the opportunity to show what he could do on national television on Thursday against the Golden State Warriors.

Unfortunately, things didn’t go so well for him to kick things off in the first quarter of the contest. Coming down on a fastbreak, Andre Iguodala saw Miller in front of him and decided to try out some Jamal Crawford moves, and here’s what ended up happening: 

Tweet of the Night: Pau Gasol rooting for Marc Gasol and the Memphis Grizzlies

With the Los Angeles Lakers long out of the playoff race, Pau Gasol may potentially shut it down for good this season after sitting out the last several games due to severe effects of vertigo.

That doesn’t mean he’s not paying attention to what’s going on around the league – he still has particular interest in the progress of the Memphis Grizzlies because of his brother Marc Gasol. The Grizzlies are trying to fight their way into the playoffs, but the stiff competition in the West has them on the outside looking in, trailing the Phoenix Suns by one game.

On Wednesday, the Grizzlies faced the Miami Heat in a critical game for both teams. Marc Gasol did all he could to help beat the Heat 107-102 with 20 points, 14 rebounds and three assists. The loss put Miami back in second place behind the Indiana Pacers by 1/2 game. Pau Gasol watched the intense game and needless to say, he was rooting for the Grizzlies:

Tuesday night Dallas Mavericks power forward Dirk Nowitzki moved past Oscar Robertson on the NBA career scoring list with an 19-foot jump shot at the start of the fourth quarter against the Utah Jazz en route to a 95-83 victory.

Nowitizki scored 21 points, moving him to 10th among the all-time scorers’ list with 26,714 points thus far in his career.

One player who didn’t get the chance to congratulate him Tuesday night was Miami Heat superstar LeBron James, who was busy in a losing effort to the Brooklyn Nets.

This past weekend was a momentous one for any who would call themselves professional wrestling fans.

WrestleMania XXX, a week-long extravaganza often considered the Super Bowl of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), occurred Sunday evening, opposite the premiere of Game of Thrones fourth season and a slew of NBA basketball games.

Among the highlights of the weekend, Saturday night featured the 2014 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. The star of the night, 1980s superstar, the Ultimate Warrior.

Warrior, whose real name was James Brian Hellwig at birth, was introduced by Linda McMahon, wife of WWE CEO Vince McMahon. He gave a rousing, uninterrupted 40-minute induction speech Saturday night after having been absent from the company for over 18 years.

Three nights later, the news that no one would want to hear came across the internet screen:  ”Ultimate Warrior passes away.

Warrior was only 54 years old. He is survived by his wife Dana and their two daughters.

Among NBA circles, the news hit Portland Trail Blazers star point guard Damian Lillard as well as Phoenix Suns Digital VP and huge WWE fan Jeramie McPeek.

Nash NowitzkiFor Steve Nash and Dirk Nowitzki, Tuesday turned out to be a pretty special night.

The former teammates each accomplished a major milestone during their respective games against Houston and Utah: Nash moved past Mark Jackson for third all-time with 10,335 career assists behind John Stockton (15,806) and Jason Kidd (12,091), while Nowitzki passed Oscar Robertson for 10th all-time with 26,714 career points .

Nash has maybe one more year left in him, so he will stay behind Kidd in the record books, but Nowitzki still has plenty left in the tank. If he can sustain his current level of play for the next two seasons, he should easily be able to pass Shaquille O’Neal, who is sixth all-time with 28,596 points. If the power forward can play three to four more years, he can conceivably move past Wilt Chamberlain, who is just head of O’Neal with 31,419 points.
