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

Denver tied a single-game regular season record with 24 3-pointers.

In his last 15 games, Jokic is averaging video-game numbers: 23.4 points on 58.7 percent shooting and 39 percent from three, 11.2 rebounds, 5.6 assists, 1.1 blocks. For a 21-year-old center to be able to impact the game in this many ways is undeniably rare and what has led to the revitalization of the Nuggets.

When matched up against the best team in the league, the Nuggets were not stunned. Not only did he break his record, but he went on to demolish it, totaling 27 points and ten rebounds on the night. The Warriors attempted 32 3-pointers and hit eight of them. Golden State ended up sharing victory for one.

OUR PREDICTION: The over is a ideal 8-0 in the last eight meetings between these two teams and is 5-0 in the last five meetings in Denver. They may have entered their game yesterday not visibly appearing to be a threat, as a losing team, but they turned out to be. Sure, the Warriors were coming off a brutal back-to-back set, and yes, they were without four of their own guys, and I suppose the elevation doesn't help, but that doesn't explain getting absolutely smoked by the eighth-seeded Nuggets.

The San Antonio Spurs took full advantage of Golden State's setback, closing to within four games at the top of the Western Conference by beating the Indiana Pacers 110-106. 28 points, 14.3 rebounds, and seven assists.

In the fourth quarter, a cast of Warriors bench players engineered a startling rally that trimmed their deficit to 111-100 with 7:05 left. On the other hand, Denver needs to capitalize off their Warriors win.

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.

Stein mentions in his report that the Nuggets "don't plan to spend big on the Italian" if he were choose not to opt-in to the final year of his deal.

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.
