George Karl went ballistic during a 111-88 win by the Denver Nuggets over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday night.  With the Nuggets leading 75-65 with 3:25 remaining in the 3rd quarter, the officials blew a call.  Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson was called for a charge when Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio was obviously out of position and guilty of a blocking foul.

Karl was so ticked off that he actually pushed his own player, Wilson Chandler, away as if he were a stranger.  Karl wanted to give the officials a piece of his mind up close and personal.  I always love the assistant coach who draws the short end of the stick and has to restrain the head coach who has just lost his mind.  That’s even worse than being the “get back” coach on a football team.

Although a head coach didn’t lose control during a Sunday doubleheader of NBA action on 104.5 The Team, there were plenty of headlines.  The Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Boston Celtics 91-79, while the Los Angeles Lakers topped the Chicago Bulls 90-81.  This is the first time all season that the Lakers have been two games over .500.  Their record is now (33-31).  Your home for the NBA is 104.5 The Team, ESPN Radio.
