ACTIVATE "WE BELIEVE 2021"
The Golden State Warriors ignored their myriad of injuries and knocked off the Denver Nuggets 116-107 in San Francisco. Face of the franchise Stephen Curry went crazy, scoring 53 points on 24 shots! Oh by the way, he also passed Wilt Chamberlain on the all-time franchise scoring list!
Big night for Curry and the franchise!
Denver is a playoff team and possible contender; the Warriors beating them is pretty sweet. This was a huge victory for a team figuring out their rotation on the fly with James Wiseman, Kelly Oubre Jr, and of course Klay Thompson out with injuries. Speaking of injuries, an apparent knee injury to Jamal Murray in the 4th quarter cast an anxious pall over the arena.
Hopefully he’s okay; he’s a fantastic player and an integral piece to a Nuggets team with championship dreams.
Okay Dub Nation, how do you good folks feel about the win?
Abaddon - Answer to your sidebar question:
Curiously though, it says Steph has 36 such games but when I count such games manually, it gives me 33. So I checked for couple of other players, it matched for them. Go figure!!
