Nikola Jokic signed the second triple-double of his career with 17 points, 21 rebounds, 12 assists and 2 steals.
The Nuggets, 25-30, have won five of the last 10 games.
But that's a big hill to climb for the best team in the world. You'd expect the Warriors to run away with this one, or put Nikola Jokic's big head on a spike with a trademark 22-3 run in the third quarter, or do really anything besides what they did, which was to get blown out from start to finish and cede an National Basketball Association record. They defeated a team that had won almost 20 more games than them on the season, and by a long shot. Golden State ended up sharing victory for one. They were exhausted and bad, while the Nuggets were historically hot from three. "But we never come into a game, especially with a team like that and just want to outshoot them from beyond the arc because that's what they do".
Will tonight's Warriors and Nuggets game be high-scoring for bettors at 9:00PM ET? Their 79 first-half points were a season-high for a half and the most the Warriors have allowed in a half. His impact has turned the Nuggets into a contender for the eighth seed after being a basement dweller in the Western Conference for the past two years. Other than a run late in the game by the Warriors' bench, Denver was in control the entire time.
They have had a winning record every season since 1997-1998, when Duncan was a rookie, and broke a tie with the Utah Jazz, who had 19 straight winning seasons from 1985-2004. Today Denver has the day off, and can enjoy their Warriors win. The guy has been brilliant following a sluggish first month of the season during which the Nuggets couldn't figure out their ideal lineup configurations. More fairly profane quotes like the one in Denver may be coming, and someone is sure to capture them.
