Under normal circumstances, using Timofey Mozgov’s name is a direct object in a headline, as in he played the victim in another player’s posterizing dunk. Hell, at one point last season, we went ahead and started using his last name as a verb. Not last night.
In Saturday night’s game against the Orlando Magic, Mozgov Mozgov’ed on Andrew Nicholson, much to the surprise of his teammates. The Nuggets center finished the game shooting 4-8, 6-6 on FTs for 14 points as Denver rolled past Orlando by a score of 120-94 for their fifth straight win.
