It seemed the Nuggets were going to make a quick exit from this year’s NBA Playoffs after losing 3 straight against Oklahoma City but Monday, Ty Lawson, wearing the Zoom Flight Five, Jason Kidd’s former signature sneaker named after his jersey number (also Lawson’s number in college at UNC) and obviously a favorite for Lawson who has multiple Nike ID colorways, as seen throughout this year’s Sneaker Watch coverage, dropped in a career playoff-high of 27 points. The Nuggets defeated the Thunder to stay alive for another game against Oklahoma City Wednesday.
Memphis, behind 15 points from Mike Conley and 11 from O.J. Mayo continue to roll surprisingly right through the San Antonio Spurs. The Grizzlies are now up 3-1 in the series after a 104-86 blowout of San Antonio.
Dallas also moved one game closer to the second round of the playoffs with a victory over the Portland Trail Blazers. Dirk led the team with 25 points, while Tyson Chandler grabbed 20 rebounds and Jason Kidd dished out 14 assists.
