On the Warriors podcast:
#1 The Denver Nuggets had to the home floor and pretty much stayed ahead of Golden State in the first half but this is a Warriors team you could never count out.
#2 In that first half the Nuggets defense seemed to have something on Warriors top scorers Jordan Poole, Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry keeping them off balance on their shots with some improved defense.
#3 The Nuggets held the lead in both halves and got offensive help from Nikola Jokic who led with 37 points, Monte Morris 24 points, and Aaron Gordon 21 points.
#4 Jokic is one of the tougher Nuggets to defend he and his teammates will need that same kind of energy they had in game four to stay alive in game five but facing players like Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Jordan Poole on offense will be another big test.
#5 Wednesday night will be game #5 with the Warriors up four games to one, can Warrior head coach Steve Kerr might think “no pressure” going into what could be the Nuggets last game of the season in Denver?
