Clippers Interested In Acquiring Nuggets' Danilo Gallinari

Wilson Chandler (illness), Mason Plumlee (trade), Emmanuel Mudiay (back), Danilo Gallinari (groin), Kenneth Faried (ankle) and Darrell Arthur (knee) were all sitting out Monday's game in Denver, but that didn't slow the Nuggets offensively against the best team in the National Basketball Association.

Golden State Warriors guards Klay Thompson and Shaun Livingston will not be available for Monday's game against the Nuggets in Denver, the team announced.

Insane Reason Man Jumped Into Tiger Enclosure Revealed
A series of loud explosive bangs can then be heard and the two tigers run off, while the first tiger continues to bite the man. The man was attacked by the tiger after he scaled the wall to avoid paying for a ticket, local tourism authorities said .

Nikola Jokic hit 7-of-13 shots for 17 points, 21 rebounds, 12 assists and two steals in Monday's blowout 132-110 win over the Warriors, racking up the second triple-double of his career. (And we're not going to mention he got beat backdoor twice in the first quarter, just like he got beat backdoor twice in OKC.) After a incendiary January and early February, the back-to-back MVP has fallen down to earth a bit the last four games averaging 17 points and shooting 8-of-32 from distance. They stunned the Warriors in one of their best performances of the year.

The Nuggets tied the 3-point mark set by the Rockets in December against New Orleans. Curry was the missing link as he only scored 11 points in 27 minutes. A relative let down after the high of beating the Oklahoma City Thunder was also virtually certain, and the Nuggets were a fluky 60 percent from beyond the arc too. Does he try to find minutes for Hernangomez at the expense of Danilo Gallinari and Wilson Chandler? Barton drove to the basket and connected on a floater as the Nuggets reeled off a quick-fire 8-0 run to put the game out of reach. His impact has turned the Nuggets into a contender for the eighth seed after being a basement dweller in the Western Conference for the past two years. Defensively, the Warriors are yielding 105.3 points against the opposing teams. In one play that signals the brilliance to come, Jokic grabbed the rebound, brought the ball up court himself and dropped a attractive bounce pass to Jameer Nelson for the easy basket.

United States economic growth slows in Q4 2016 from weak exports
The economy grew 1.9% in the fourth quarter, filling in the picture for 2016 with less than stellar growth of 1.6%. Consumption spending increased to an annual rate of $11.6 trillion, up $71.3 billion from the preceding quarter.

On the season, the Warriors are averaging 118.6 points, 44.9 rebounds and 31.1 assists per game. Jokic set a career high in boards with this one and easily crushed his 20-13-11 triple-double from February 3. They've also covered in four of their last five games played on Monday.

J&J Boosts Drug Roster With $30B Actelion Deal
