espnW: Denver Nuggets
It’s apparently Taylor Swift Day, so you should either just embrace it or quickly move away from your computer, tablet, phone or television. The pop singer may have appeared with the New York Knicks over the weekend but that didn’t stop the Denver Nuggets from parodying her hit “Shake It Off” on Monday.
I don’t know, guys. I really want to like this one but the weird musical edits really make think this is more of a case of fakers who are gonna fake, fake, fake, fake, fake for easy page clicks. And, it definitely falls short of the high mark set by the Big Ten mascots and Denny Hamlin in their attempts of this song and video.
See something entertaining on social media that you think deserves to be shared? Let me know on Twitter, @darcymaine_espn.
On this day in 1983, the Detroit Pistons beat the Denver Nuggets 186-184 in triple overtime in the highest-scoring game in NBA history. Of the 370 combined points, Nuggets stars Kiki Vandeweghe (51) and Alex English (47) combined for 98 of them, and an NBA-record four players scored more than 40 points. An astounding 12 players reached double figures in front of 9,655 fans. Other records set that night include most field goals by two teams (142), most field goals by one team (Pistons, 74) and most assists by two teams (93). “Everybody was just flowing,” English shared with ESPN.com in 2005. “It seemed like nobody could miss a shot.” Considering the average point total in the NBA today is about half of the record-setting score, it seems hard to believe it will ever be broken, but we can continue to watch hopefully in the meantime. For the record, the highest-scoring game in WNBA history was played on July 24, 2010. Phoenix beat Minnesota in double overtime 127-124.
