Lakers guard, wife get death threats on Twitter

From Comcast SportsNet
NEW YORK (AP) -- Lakers guard Steve Blake and his wife have been attacked online since he missed a possible game-winning 3-pointer against the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 2 of their Western Conference semifinal. The Twitter accounts of Blake and his wife, Kristen, were deluged with a range of criticism after the loss Wednesday night. "I hope your family gets murdered" read one post that Kristen Blake re-tweeted with the comment, "Wow." Kobe Bryant took to Twitter early Friday to chastise those attacking the Blakes, saying "Lakers fans who said bad things to Blake and his wife on twitter - you should be ashamed of yourself." Bryant said that Blake was a big reason the Lakers beat the Nuggets in the first round. Kristen Blake tweeted that she blocked 500 people from viewing her account.

Denver Nuggets fall in me vs. Nuggets challenge

The Denver Nuggets have been hot of late, winning seven of their last 10 games against pretty stiff competition. However, they were no match in a tough virtual matchup on Friday night. 

CSN Chicago associate producer Adam Yingst took on Nikola Jokic and company in #MeVsNuggets, a challenge in which the person watching must eat more chicken nuggets than Denver has field goals. 

Fighting a cold, Yingst powered through 41 chicken nuggets to seal the victory over Denver. If that isn't reminiscent of the Michael Jordan flu game, then we don't know what is.
