Mile High Miracle: Warriors pound Nuggets with 116-100 win

Did… did the Warriors just blow out the #2 team in the West?

Playing with just nine players, including three playing on 10-day contracts, the Golden State Warriors rallied behind strong shooting to put away the Denver Nuggets. This was their second consecutive road win and sets the stage for a triumphant return of Stephen Curry.

Golden State got scorchingly hot behind the arc, hitting 18 of their 41 attempts (44%). I should probably write up deep dive articles about how bad the Warriors have been on the perimeter more often, because this was certainly the most dominant shooting performance of the year.

Mychal Mulder went full X-Files mode, going 5 of 10 from deep and entrenching himself deeper into position to get another 10-day contract from a Warriors team looking for supplemental bench shooting.

But the story of the game was Jordan Poole’s 15 points, 6 assists and Andrew Wiggins utilitarian game.

It’s going to be a tough game to choose a Warrior Wonder, which is a problem this team hasn’t had in a long time.

Great display of mental toughness.

Bring out the Steph!!
