The Denver Nuggets took their show on the road and tore down the Phoenix Suns on Monday night, thanks to their usual fast-paced offense and athletic defense smothering the heat emanating from the sun.

In one simultaneous show of fast-pace offense and amazing athleticism, Ty Lawson picked up the basketball on top of the mountains in Denver and chucked it all the way down to Kenneth Faried, who was waiting patiently, midair, near the hoop in Phoenix.

Lawson and Faried make eye contact a good 50 feet apart, so Lawson decides that it would be a good time to chuck the ball. 

Faried then picks up on what's going on, jumps from the dotted line, picks the ball out of the air, leans the other direction and slams it home. In other words, just another day in the life of the league's most ridiculous basketball player.

Sure, nobody died like in Chris Paul's lob to DeAndre Jordan, but it took a lot more skill for this one to go down, and it was a perfect connection between two exciting young players.
