Nuggets head coach Mike Malone had to call several timeouts to douse the fire but the Warriors simply couldn’t miss.
It was a sort of a statement for the Warriors, especially since the Nuggets are now considered as legitimate threats to their crown. Some believe that the game is a preview of the Western Conference Finals.
The Nuggets have been surprising the NBA of their stellar play. Nikola Jokic, the 41st overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, has turned into an MVP candidate.
Several players, too, including Jamal Murray, have evolved into all-star caliber players.
But amid all this, the Warriors proved that they haven’t lost a step. Though it’s been a relatively difficult season for them, they are, nonetheless, the defending back-to-back champions.
The 3-point shot is their main offensive weapon, and they made sure that the Nuggets felt the heat in the opening quarter.
