The Portland Trail Blazers took a 2-1 series lead against the Denver Nuggets Friday night in a four-overtime game that saw two players — one on each team — surpass an hour of game time.

The NBA's app was unable to register this many minutes played initially, as most games end after 48 minutes.

Several people screenshotted the mistake, which showed that Denver center Nikola Jokic scored 33 points in a single minute, and called it the NBA's Y2K.

For a period of time, it appeared Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic and Portland Trail Blazers guard CJ McCollum each had recorded the most prolific one-minute stretch in the history of basketball, according to the NBA's official app.

Friday night's Blazers' four-overtime victory over the Nuggets put Portland up two games to one in the best-of-seven series, but the four extra five-minute sessions tacked onto the end of the 48-minute game forced some players to play a herculean amount of minutes.

Both Jokic and McCollum broke 60 minutes played in the fourth overtime, which the NBA's official app seemed unable to compute.

With the start of the new year we're close to the halfway point of the 2018-19 NBA season, and the league's best players are reaching their peak as the all-star break approaches.

Every year, fans vote for their favorite players to participate in All-Star Weekend, but the voting process is a better judge of popularity than actual skill.

In video games; "NBA 2K19" is the world's most meticulously-crafted basketball simulation and uses statistics to adjust ratings for more than 350 NBA players throughout the season.

While the players at the top of the overall rankings are household names, things start to get a bit more unpredictable as the list goes on.

April is a time for many things: Fresh flowers, filing your taxes (the day before they are due) and the NBA playoffs.

Sixteen teams from the NBA’s two conferences will battle for supremacy in best-of-seven series, all in pursuit of the Larry O’Brien trophy, and a shot at everlasting glory.

The 2017-18 season turned out to be a wild ride, with teams that seemed weak breaking through their limits, while expected contenders struggled.

Although a few teams — the Houston Rockets, Warriors, and Cavaliers — seem like easy picks to reach the finals, there are plenty of talented teams (like the Portland Trail Blazers) eager to upset the predictions.

At Thursday's NBA trading deadline, the Miami Heat essentially found themselves in a holding pattern.

But there still is wiggle room for the Heat in terms of roster space and time.

Lakers JerseyBecause of that, what didn't happen around the league Thursday potentially was of greater impact to the Heat than the flurry of moves.

Foremost, New Orleans Hornets center Chris Kaman and Boston Celtics center Jermaine O'Neal, each in the final years of their contracts, were not dealt, leaving them as potential Heat targets should buyouts be negotiated with their current teams.

Kaman's situation is somewhat clouded by the NBA running the Hornets, with Commissioner David Stern earlier this season blocking a trade of Chris Paul from New Orleans to the Los Angeles Lakers.In addition, Marcus Camby, also in the final year of his contract, was dealt Thursday to the Houston Rockets by the Portland Trail Blazers, opening a potential buyout possibility there.

The last Heat trade on deadline day was the 2006 acquisition of Derek wholesale michael jordan jerseys Anderson from the Rockets for Gerald Fitch.

Adidas calls on a plethora of stars from sports and beyond in the latest addition to its “Here to Create” campaign.

Created in partnership with agency 72andSunny, “Calling All Creators” features superstar athletes such as FC Barcelona striker Lionel Messi, Connecticut Sun forward Chiney Ogwumike, Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard, Portland Thorns midfielder Lindsey Horan, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa, to name a few.

It also reaches beyond the realm of sports, with appearances by rapper Pusha T, musician/producer Pharrell Williams, fashion designer Alexander Wang and supermodel Karlie Kloss.

“Calling All Creators” brings all these stars to the table together (with some noticeable pans underneath said table to focus on their shiny new Adidas) to deliver the brand’s manifesto piece by piece, beginning, “Calling all creators: those with the need to make something new.”

As the spot goes on, the various stars wax philosophical about the intersection of fashion, music and sports, en route to the “Here to Create” tagline.

There’s not much in the way of visual flair, with the spot relying solely on its message and star power, but then it is quite the assemblage of celebrities.

Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen passed away this afternoon in Seattle at age 65, owing to complications relating to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Vulcan, the privately held company that Allen founded in 1986, released a statement that says it is “with deep sadness that we announce the death of our founder Paul G. Allen, co-founder of Microsoft and noted technologist, philanthropist, community builder, conservationist, musician and supporter of the arts.”

His sister, Jody Allen, a businesswoman and long the CEO of Vulcan, released a separate statement, writing that her brother “was a remarkable individual on every level.

While most knew Paul Allen as a technologist and philanthropist, for us he was a much loved brother and uncle, and an exceptional friend.

“Paul’s family and friends were blessed to experience his wit, warmth, his generosity and deep concern.

At this time of loss and grief for us – and so many others – we are profoundly grateful for the care and concern he demonstrated every day.”
