With the NBA Playoffs starting, we look back on the top moments in NBA Playoff history.
On this week’s episode of QCB Unleashed, Q talks about how the Charlotte Bobcats are holding firmly to their Playoff spot after beating the Denver Nuggets last night.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The Charlotte Bobcats are getting used to big nights from Al Jefferson and Kemba Walker. Now, they have Gary Neal to throw into the offensive mix.
DENVER (AP) — Al Jefferson is pulling away in a big way from a slow, painful start to his season. Jefferson matched a season high with 35 points, including a key basket in the final seconds, and the Charlotte Bobcats hung on to beat the Denver Nuggets 101-98 on Wednesday night.
Less than a month after winning the NBA’s Coach of the Year award, Karl’s tenure with the Nuggets is over after 8½ seasons. His departure comes shortly after Masai Ujiri, the league’s executive of the year, left to become GM of the Toronto Raptors.
Danilo Gallinari says he will undergo surgery to repair the ACL on his left knee next week and is hoping to be back on the court for the Denver Nuggets around February.

Whether the pain in Stephen Curry’s sprained left ankle will subside enough for him to be on the court when the Golden State Warriors host the Denver Nuggets is not something the point guard could say for sure.
The Denver Nuggets secured the third seed in the Western Conference playoffs by routing the Phoenix Suns 118-98 on Wednesday night behind 21 points from Wilson Chandler and 20 from Andre Iguodala.
