Monday’s slate of NBA games brought us a few sets of good matchups including the Nuggets vs. Grizzlies, Clippers vs. Spurs and Bucks vs. Bobcats. While the Grizzlies suffered their 2nd loss of the season and the Clippers recorded their 6th straight win we had a nice look at a variety of footwear that includes Rudy Gay’s Nike Zoom Hyperfuse 2012 PE, Josh Smith’s adidas adiZero Ghost 2 PE and Blake Griffin’s Jordan Aero Flight PE.

The Memphis Grizzlies were handed their 2nd loss of the season by the Denver Nuggets on Monday as Rudy Gay recorded 22 pts – 2 rbs – 3 ast in his usual Nike Zoom Hyperfuse 2012 PE.

We all know Ty Lawson loves his LeBron’s and Monday he broke out the photo blue/windchill-tidepool blue Nike LeBron X+ in which he recorded 9 pts – 5 rbs – 4 ast to help the Nuggets defeat the Grizzlies 97-92.

The Hawks’ Al Horford had 15 pts – 9 rbs – 3 ast in Atlanta’s loss to the Magic Monday night and he wore a very nice Nike Air Max Hyperposite PE in the process.

Josh Smith of the Atlanta Hawks put up a rather unproductive 6 pts – 2 rbs – 1 ast Monday as the Hawks beat the Orlando Magic 81-72. J. Smoove may have not had a great night stat wise last night be he did don his usual and somewhat underrated adidas adiZero Ghost 2 PE.

Last night Monta Ellis laced up the black/chrome-varsity red Air Jordan 19 Retro last night as his Milwaukee Bucks took on the Charlotte Bobcats. Although the Bobcats defeated the Bucks 102-98 Ellis recorded 31 pts – 3 rbs – 5 ast.

The Los Angeles Clippers Blake Griffin took to the court on Monday in a player exclusive Jordan Aero Flight and helped the Clippers beat the Spurs 92-87. Griffin also recorded another double-double by putting up 16 pts – 12 rbs – 0 ast.
