The poor, hapless Philadelphia 76’ers. They thought they had a chance to notch their tenth win of the season on Wednesday night against the Denver Nuggets. They were wrong. With Philly up two points and the Nuggets taking the ball out at half court, nothing could go wrong, could it?
Let’s be real. It’s the 76’ers. If there was something that could go wrong it would definitely happen against them. Nuggets rookie Emmanuel Mudiay got the ball on the inbounds pass, bobbled it, fished around for it and eventually heaved a prayer that was answered in the mile high city.
Philadelphia is going home crying after that one. That is probably the toughest way to lose and despite Mudiay never going to college he sure has a feel for a March Madness moment! That heave gave the Nuggets a 104-103 win.
