Denver Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried has made the final cut to play for the U.S. national team.
Denver Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried has made the latest cut to play for the U.S. national team.
Kenneth Farried watched the Golden State Warriors celebrate enough victories against the Denver Nuggets during last year’s playoffs. He wouldn’t allow his team to witness another Warriors coronation this spring.
The confident aura the Golden State Warriors are giving off right now might be the only thing brighter than those yellow shirts every home fan is expected to be wearing again for Game 3 against the San Antonio Spurs on Friday night at ear-piercing Oracle Arena.
Denver Nuggets coach George Karl thought the reaction to his team’s Game 5 win over the Warriors sounded like a “different movie than I’m watching.” Golden State’s Mark Jackson defended his accusations of dirty play Wednesday, and players on both sides practically promised more physicality.
Stephen Curry overcame an ankle injury to score 29 points and hand out 11 assists, and the Warriors outlasted the Denver Nuggets 110-108 on Friday night to take a 2-1 series lead.
Whether the pain in Stephen Curry’s sprained left ankle will subside enough for him to be on the court when the Golden State Warriors host the Denver Nuggets for Game 3 on Friday night is not something even the sharp-shooting point guard could say for sure.
Stephen Curry looks to set an NBA record and help the Golden State Warriors build some momentum heading into the playoffs.
Danilo Gallinari scored 21 points, Ty Lawson had 20, and the Denver Nuggets rallied to beat the Golden State Warriors 116-105 on Sunday night for their season-high fifth straight win.
Denver’s Danilo Gallinari has struggled to find his shooting rhythm this season. Two big plays against Golden State could be just the thing to get him going.
