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:

March Madness, the culmination of college basketball’s season, is finally upon us. The NCAA Tournament bracket has been set and Round 1 games will begin Tuesday.

NBA athletes, many of whom played college basketball, are just as excited as the average fan, as can be seen by their recent tweets [Exhibit A; Exhibit B].

As the NCAA Tournament draws near, the Golden State Warriors will embark upon a tourney of their own—to determine the best three-point shooter in the organization. All-Star point guard Stephen Curry provides the details.

Stephen CurryThe Golden State Warriors sure have been an unpredictable bunch this season, and that’s usually not a good thing when you’re talking about a team that’s supposed to be considered one of the more dangerous teams in the league.

GSW_Iguodala_AndreAfter an impressive victory over the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday, the Golden Warriors made sure they didn’t follow it up with let-down game against the lowly Boston Celtics.

The Warriors came out blazing from the start with a 12-2 lead and never looked back on their way to an easy 108-88 blowout victory, ending their six-game road trip on a high note with a 4-2 record. They led by as many as 31 points in the third quarter, as the Celtics provided next to no resistance on the defensive end. With this win, Golden State is now two games ahead of the Dallas Mavericks and Phoenix Suns, and three games ahead of the Memphis Grizzlies for the sixth seed in the West. 

Tweet of the Night: Andre Iguodala makes fun of MVP trophy presenter of The Rising Stars Challenge

The annual Rising Stars Challenge on Friday between chosen rookies and sophomores was pretty much what most expected it to be: An offensive showcase with not a whole lot of defense being played (although the Plumlee brothers may disagree).

Playing in front of his home crowd in New Orleans, Anthony Davis was expected to make some serious noise in this game. However, it was the unlikely shootout that broke out between Dion Waiters and Tim Hardaway Jr. in the second half that captured everyone’s attention:
