Kenneth Faried Vomits on the Bench and Has a Double-Double (VIDEO)

Early in the fourth quarter last night, Kenneth Faried’s flu got the best of him and he threw up while sitting on the Denver Nuggets’ bench. It was not enough to stop him, though, as Faried recorded 19 points and 11 boards in a 112-106 Nuggets win over the visiting San Antonio Spurs. Per the Denver Post: “The legend of Kenneth continues to grow here in Denver. No he’s not a finished product, but he keeps putting up these memorable games. And on Tuesday night, the dude played sick, so sick with a cold and flu that at one point he threw up in a trash can on the Denver bench. He still logged 29 minutes, scoring 19 points with 11 boards, while making seven of nine free-throw attempts. ‘(It was) a grind, yes, a top to bottom grind,” he said after the Nuggets’ huge win against the Spurs. ‘I kept fighting, but it was so hard to produce like I could have. Looking at the numbers, everybody would say I did pretty good. Personally, I believe I can do even better if I was healthy. I’m happy we won, but I’m not content. We still have a long way to go in the standings. As long as we take care of home, we should be fine.’”
