On Monday, April 12th the Denver Nuggets and Golden State Warriors will meet for the second time this season. The initial game occurred on January 14th with Denver winning by a score of 114-104. The third and final meeting is set for April 23rd, also at Golden State.
Last season, the squads played twice splitting the series. The Nuggets hold the all-time record between the squads with 97 victories in the team’s 179 meetings.
The eight-game winning streak came to an end with the Nuggets learning they can lose with Aaron Gordon on the court. Since the trade Denver was unbeaten until Sunday versus the Celtics.
The loss was one that head coach Mike Malone will no doubt be displeased by given Denver had the game well in hand leading by 14 points. But an eight-point fourth quarter and 40-8 Celtics run made the loss definitive.
Michael Porter Jr. led the Nuggets with 22 points while MVP candidate Nikola Jokic posted a triple-double of 17 points, 11 assists, and 10 rebounds.
Facundo Campazzo and Will Barton scored 14 and 13 points respectively as the only other double-figure scorers.
Jamal Murray (knee) sat for the fourth consecutive game. Shaquille Harrison (protocols) remained out. Both are expected to be out again Monday.
Golden State Warriors
It’s been a topsy-turvy season for the Warriors. February the team experienced an uptick with the team playing above .500 (8-7). However, since that point, the Dubs are 6-12 and have dropped to the 10th seed in the Western Conference.
There was optimism with Stephen Curry back especially since the team went 1-5 in the six games he missed due to a sore tail bone.
That positivity took a hit on Saturday with news their rookie James Wiseman suffered a torn meniscus when he was blocked dunking and landed awkwardly. Further tests will occur to determine how extensive the injury is but the likelihood is he’ll be lost for the season.
The Warriors powered through in spite of the set back with Stephen Curry leading the way via 38 points including eight 3-pointers plus eight rebounds, and five assists.
Andrew Wiggins scored 25 points while Jordan Poole (21) and Mychal Mulder (10) were the other double-figure contributors.
Kelly Oubre Jr. missed Saturday’s match with a banged-up wrist and is listed as day-to-day. Eric Paschall is dealing with a hip injury and will be out until mid-April. Klay Thompson (Achilles) will miss the season.
