Timofey Mozgov lights it up with 93 points, according to TNT

Timofey Mozgov 93 points

Timofey Mozgov had one heck of a game on Thursday against the Golden State Warriors. He went 10-of-15 and grabbed a career-high 29 rebounds.

Impressive.

But according to a TNT graphic, he also scored an astounding 93 points!

Considering Mozgov’s 93 points rank second in NBA history, it was only natural for his game to get the Wilt Chamberlain 100-point game treatment:

As my friend Colin said, it’s pretty shocking that TNT didn’t even highlight the 93 as a career high for Mozgov! What, did he once go for 120 back in Russia?

You would think the Cavaliers would know how to spell LeBron James’ name by now …

How is it possible that someone working for the Cleveland Cavaliers doesn’t know how to spell LeBron James’ name? Do they have internet commenters working the scoreboard or something? I mean the guy only spent half his career in Cleveland and is one of the most recognizable athletes in the world, but no expectations or anything.

And for those wondering if this was some personal thing against LeBron, take a look at how they misspelled Anderson Varejao’s name:

Looks like it’s a spelling problem, not an anti-LeBron problem.

James probably took notice and was motivated to go for a personal-best 25 in the first quarter. He’s such a monster.

FOX 31 Denver accidentally airs penis picture on live TV (Video)

FOX 31 KDVR in Denver committed one of the most epic blunders we have ever seen on live TV.

The Denver news station was covering the crash of a KOMO-TV helicopter in Seattle and aired photos from a Twitter feed. Unfortunately for them, whatever Twitter feed they were scrolling through wasn’t exactly censored. The result was a penis photo made it onto air.

KDVR apologized for what happened:

While reporting breaking news about the crash of the KOMO-TV helicopter in Seattle, FOX31 Denver accidentally broadcast an offensive photo while scrolling live through a Twitter feed of pictures from the crash scene.

The photo was mistakenly broadcast by our control room. It did not come from the tablet many viewers saw being used by one of our anchors.

We apologize for the inadvertent broadcast of the image and we are taking immediate steps to prevent such an accident from happening again.

The best part was seeing the entire panel gasp at the same time. Look at how appalled they were:

KDVR Denver

That’s two mouths wide open and a third covering his mouth. Only the dude on his iPad didn’t react. He must have missed it.

Providence reporter does not realize he’s on TV, gives us great blooper (Video)

Frank CarpanoA miscommunication between the studio anchor and field reporter led to a great blooper on WJAR-TV in Providence, Rhode Island, on Saturday night.

Based on the video, it seems like there was an issue that prevented reporter Frank Carpano from going on-air for his initial report following Providence’s win over Creighton at the Big East tournament, so the host tried to kick it back to him again. Even though Carpano was giving a thumbs up, he apparently could not hear his cue, and therefore did not realize he was on air. He kept futzing with his earpiece the entire time.

The pinnacle was when Carpano, not realizing he was on live TV, launched himself at the camera with the thumbs up and said, “I gave you a thumbs up!”

Dude, if you couldn’t hear, then why did you give a thumbs up?

Wichita State T-shirts incorrectly lists Indiana State as MVC tournament champs

Wichita State T-shirt

Wichita State capped a perfect regular season by beating Indiana State Sunday 83-69 to win the Missouri Valley Conference tournament. Only you wouldn’t know it by the T-shirts the team was wearing in their celebration.

The front of the team’s conference tourney champs shirts properly showed the Shockers as the conference tourney winners, but the back, which had the bracket from the tournament, incorrectly listed Indiana State as the winner.

Who goofed? I’ve got to know!

Goalie lets in 200-foot game-losing goal while chatting with fans (Video)

Keegan-McHenryUtah State lost a hard-fought game against rival Denver University in club hockey on Friday night. The two teams played into overtime and Denver ended up scoring the game-winner with 15 seconds remaining in the extra period. The goal came from Robert Biedron, but Denver owes its victory to Utah State goalie Keegan McHenry.

For whatever reason, McHenry was not paying attention and did not realize that a face-off was about to happen at the other end of the ice. When Denver won said face-off, McHenry was out of his net and over near the glass chatting with fans. Biedron immediately noticed this and fired the puck 200 feet for a game-winning goal. McHenry took responsibility for his mistake by sending a tweet that he later deleted.

“I am ashamed and disgusted with myself,” the tweet read, according to Puck Daddy. “With what happened and how I acted. I let myself and more importantly, my team down.”

While it was one of the most incredible boneheaded mistakes you will ever see, it’s hard not to feel sorry for McHenry. He should have been paying attention with the game on the line, but that’s a play that will haunt him for the rest of his life.

Jason Dufner messes up putt in hilarious fashion (Video)

Jason-Dufner-botched-puttOne of the reasons I love watching golf so much is it gives terrible golfers like myself a chance to witness professionals making some of the same mistakes I make. During the Franklin Templeton Shootout on Saturday, Jason Dufner did something that every one of my buddies has done but I have never seen a PGA golfer do.

Dufner went to address his birdie put on the 9th hole and inadvertently tapped it, sending it roughly a foot sideways. Had something like this happened at the Masters, no one would have been smiling. Since it happened at one of those laid-back tournaments at the end of the season, the guys Dufner was playing with burst out laughing.

Dufner and his partner Dustin Johnson finished 11th out of 12 pairings. The botched birdie attempt contributed to that, but I’m sure DJ won’t hold it against him. Being there to witness Duf screw up like that was probably worthwhile.
