Both teams last had a brutal schedule and this was noticeable especially in the final phase, when both Denver and Golden State rather reminded of tumbling boxers. It was barely spotted, in the end it was the young legs of Jordan Poole, who made the difference.
The 23-year-old sanked two threes in series over the last minute, while Denver produced two ball losses in a row in five days in the fourth game. Nikola Jokic, with 23 points (9/20 FG, 0/8 threesome), 12 rebounds and 9 assists again a good StatLine, in the end but the grains were missing, among other because Kevon Looney (10, 5 rebounds) the Serbs as good as hardly anyone else defended this season. Golden State left no point in the last 3:10 minutes and achieved himself 13.
But the best man of the guests was curry, who had brought the dubs with two good drives to the basket at all on the winning road. The chef came to 34 points (11/21 FG, 5/12 threesome) and 9 rebounds. Curry also broke through the sound wall of 20,000 points – and this happened to the end of the third quarter in classic curry-manner. A fast crossover, a deep threesome of logo near, Nothing But Net. It was the conclusion of a real show that the Point Guard delivered in the last six minutes of the section. With 15 points, the chef joined a double-digit residue in a guide (88:84).
Stephen curry catches fire in the third quarter
The first half had heard the hosts, which once again could build on a strong Jokic, but settle exactly when the Serb got a break. A 15: 2-course of the bench around Demarcus Cousins, Jamychal Green or Rookie Bones Hyland (Nice Handles!) Gas Denver for the first time a two-digit leadership, which could preserve the hosts until the break.
Even after the change, Denver was the dominant team, the break came first when Jokic in the middle of the third quarter his fourth foul collapsed and curry suddenly finged fire. Energy also provided Rookie Jonathan Kuminga (18) in this phase, which was an invigorating element with his athletics. Poole scored 21 meters (8/13), Klay Thompson came to 18 points (7/20 FG, 2/8 threesome).

The nuggets hit poorly on the other side (only 42 percent), rebounds and free throws held the hosts who had won the first three comparisons this season against Golden State. Monte Morris (19, 8/14) met important litters in the fourth quarter, but from the rest was too little.
