5 stats you wouldn't believe from the Nuggets' win over the Warriors

5 stats you wouldn't believe from the Nuggets' win over the Warriors

Kevin Durant led Golden State with 25 points while Curry had only 11 in the Warriors' ninth loss of the season, tying their loss total from past year when they set an National Basketball Association record by winning 73 games.

Denver Hernangómez: 27 points 10 rebounds and 6 three-pointers.

Denver exploded out of the gate, scoring 42 points in the first quarter as Hernangomez drove to the basket early and connected on two triples to have 11 points at the first break.

The Nuggets, 25-30, have won five of the last 10 games.

When matched up against the best team in the league, the Nuggets were not stunned.

By all means, there were a lot of threes being landed, just a few more by the Warriors' competition. The Raptors and Clippers are among the teams said to be monitoring Gallinari's availability, amidst a growing belief that Denver is prepared to move him, given that the Nuggets anticipate that Gallinari will bypass the final season of his current contract (valued at $16.1 million) and join Millsap on the open market, and they don't plan to spend big to retain the Italian. They stunned the Warriors in one of their best performances of the year. Durant's comments will certainly be brought up if they do indeed meet and it should make things all the more interesting.

Golden State's reserves stepped up in the fourth quarter.

Verizon To Offer Unlimited Wireless Data Plan After Long Resisting
Included in the unlimited plan is a hotspot tethering of up to 10GB at LTE speeds, and calls and texts to Canada and Mexico. If you are interested in signing up, the Verizon Unlimited plan will be available online from Monday, February 13.

Whether the addition of Gallinari alone will be enough to push the Clippers over the top is of course something that can not be answered at this moment, but the team may have to move ahead with the deal anyway if they want to improve their chances.

The Nuggets' rout of the Warriors may go down as the biggest upset of the season considering what Denver was dealing with.

In their upcoming week of play the Warriors will need to rebound quickly in order to maintain their position.

Eric Bledsoe scored 37 points in a losing effort as the Phoenix Suns were downed 110-108 by the New Orleans Pelicans, the Philadelphia 76ers overcame the Charlotte Hornets 105-99 and the Atlanta Hawks edged the Portland Trail Blazers 109-104 after overtime. "I feel like in certain situations we force ourselves to get into a flow and are really precious with the ball", Warriors sixth man Andre Iguodala told ESPN while describing a first-quarter run on Saturday that turned the game in their favor.

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. Denver hasn't won back-to-back games since January 26-28.

They then carried their momentum into the second frame and outscored the visitors 37-24 to build a huge 25-point lead at the intermission.
