There were a lot of highlights out of the Nuggets’ dramatic comeback on Thursday night, most centered around the comeback itself.

But there were others. Like when Kenneth Faried chased down Thaddeus Young and denied a dunk that most players just would have surrendered.

Then there is Arnett Moultrie trying to spin from the post into the lane for a shot and having it just swallowed up and grabbed out of the air by JaVale McGee. That’s the kind of block a coach loves — not sent three rows into the stands so the other team gets the ball back, but grabbed and used to start a fast break the other way.
