Nuggets destroy Warriors at their own game

  • JaVale Mc Gee will continue his streak of starts today against the Nuggets

The Warriors were blasted by the Nuggets in Denver on Monday night - a classic letdown game after an emotional weekend.

Nikola Jokic got his second career triple-double and the Denver Nuggets tied an National Basketball Association record with 24 3-pointers while shocking the Golden State Warriors 132-110 on Monday night.

Nikola Jokic registered a triple double with 17 points, 21 rebounds and 12 assists, Juancho Hernangomez had a career-high 27 points, and seven different Nugs railed three point buckets, as the Nuggets shot an absurd 71% from three through two-plus quarters of action. They missed two 3-pointers in the final minute, and Jamal Murray passed up an uncontested 3 to dribble out the clock. Nurkic had only appeared in 45 of the Nuggets' 54 games this season and was averaging 8.0 points and 5.8 rebounds in 17.9 minutes per game at the time of the trade. The over is also 4-1 in the Warriors' last five games coming off a win and is 20-7 in their last 27 games against a team with a losing record.

The Golden State point guard went four-of-18 from the field and finished with 11 points.

Stephen Curry had one of the worst games of his career, shooting 1-of-11 from deep while clanking a number of excellent looks. It was a season-high in 3-point percentage (60 percent). Barton drove to the basket and connected on a floater as the Nuggets reeled off a quick-fire 8-0 run to put the game out of reach.

The Warriors may still sit at the top of the standings of the Western Conference, going 46-9 on the season, with the best record in the league, but nobody would have known based off their performance last night. Jokic set a career high in boards with this one and easily crushed his 20-13-11 triple-double from February 3. For a 21-year-old center to be able to impact the game in this many ways is undeniably rare and what has led to the revitalization of the Nuggets. It's one thing to try and beat the Warriors in the regular season, but it's a different beast in the playoffs.
