So naturally, Denver tied the National Basketball Association record for three-pointers in a game with 24 and Golden State played like a team that's ready for the all-star break in a 132-110 Nuggets victory.
ABOUT THE NUGGETS (24-30): Denver stuck with Cleveland in the first half but surrendered an 18-0 run in the third quarter as the fatigue of three road games in four nights set in. Six Golden State players finished with between 14 and 27 points on a night Curry shot just 4-of-18 from the field and 1-of-11 from beyond the arc. Miller has played in 12 games for the Nuggets and is averaging 5.7 minutes per game.
Warriors: Wednesday they host the Kings, a team they lost to in overtime, 109-106 on February 4. Willy Barton scored 24 points and 10 rebounds; and Jameer Nelson scored 23 points which added towards the Denver Nuggets victory.
Stephen Curry had one of the worst games of his career, shooting 1-of-11 from deep while clanking a number of excellent looks. He can bang in the paint but has a deft touch around the rim; his jumper is smooth and extends to the 3-point line (36%); and the man is an absolute savant passing the ball. They were without five key players - Darrell Arthur, Wilson Chandler, Kenneth Faried, Danilo Gallinari and Emmnauel Mudiay - and it didn't matter. When he was on the court, Jokic accounted for 35.3 percent of the Nuggets' assists. The Warriors still manage to be at the top position of the Western Conference. His previous high mark was 14 points on December 10, and that game was also the last time he'd scored in double figures.
He was drafted just two years ago, and if you don't remember the Nuggets taking the 6-foot-10 Nokic in the second round of the 2014 NBA Draft, it's not your fault. Jokic always seems to take the right angle when going up for a rebound or cutting off a pick-and-roll. The Warriors were still recovering emotionally from perhaps its most personal matchup of the season.
On the season, the Warriors are averaging 118.6 points, 44.9 rebounds and 31.1 assists per game.
