Warriors splash record 51 points in 1st quarter vs Nuggets

Adjust Comment Print

The Warriors came out firing on all cylinders, dropping an National Basketball Association record 51 first quarter points on one of the teams with aspirations of knocking them off once the postseason rolls around.

While Denver did a great job of answering back with baskets of their own, the Nuggets had a very hard time stopping the Warriors from scoring.

Denver knocked off Golden State 100-98 in Denver on October 21 thanks to Juancho Hernangomez blocking a layup at the buzzer.

The bigger point to ponder with the Nuggets (29-14) is what they do now as a response - especially with home games coming fast and thick against Chicago (10-34) and Cleveland (9-35) today and Saturday.

Warriors guard Steph Curry, middle, drives to the basket between the Nuggets' Malik Beasley, left, and Nikola Jokic on Tuesday at Pepsi Center in Denver. "Once they made a couple, it makes for a long night".

"It doesn't mean anything until the end of the year", Golden State coach Steve Kerr said.

The rout of a struggling T'Wolves team - who fired head coach Tom Thibodeau last week - was a confidence builder for the 76ers who play their next 12 games against teams with winning records. We wanna kinda correct that going into the last half of the season.

Jokic finished with 17 points, eight assists and four rebounds on the night while being double-teamed at times, continuing his hot play as of late. "We want to be able to carry this and put a nice little streak together, and we're doing it".

"Finding that balance is always what we're looking for", he said. When they're locked in offensively, the ball movement is crisp, their sets are fluid, and they opportunistically push the tempo.

"So they are more than capable of getting going". They looked to run off every Denver miss.

"He texted me after the game and said he's never seen me have four dunks", Thompson said.

However, the Nuggets have to take some heat for Tuesday's outcome.

Cousins has been out with an Achilles injury but his on-court debut gives the Warriors the option to field a starting five of All-Stars as he links up with Curry, Durant, Thompson and Draymond Green, who hopes his new teammate's impact is as significant as expected.

Thompson, who finished with 31 points in 25 minutes after shooting 13-for-19 from the field, echoed Kerr's stance.

And then, of course, there were the Curry and Durant heat checks in transition, the unguardable pull-up bombs from 30 feet out that they uncork when they're really trying to rip someone's heart out. The Warriors made 21-of-39 shots from behind the arc.
