The reigning NBA Champs come into Denver Sunday night after a dramatic 124-123 win at Utah on Friday night. The back and forth game was the reason people turn in to watch the Warriors play basketball.
The Nuggets come in after playing their home opener against the Phoenix Suns on Saturday night, unfortunately, those results were not available at the time of this article.
Golden State Warriors
Seems like this team is going to be the team to beat once again this year, with talk of a three-peat already emerging on national sports talk television. And with the likes of Steph Curry and Kevin Durant (who combined for 69 pts on Friday) there’s little to doubt the validity that this team is the best in the league.
Friday night saw a different hero for the Dubs, former Utah Jazz player, Jonas Jerebko netted the game winner to lift his new team over his former team with .03 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter. Talk about a way to get even.
The Nuggets don’t quite have the star power that the Jazz do, but they can’t be taken lightly either. The Warriors seem to be able to toy with their prey the way a cat does with a field mouse, but if they want to get lazy against this Denver team, they will bite back.
Golden State could be without one of their big role players on Sunday. Andre Iguadola is currently listed as questionable for this tilt with the Nuggets. The Warriors are a pretty deep team though, deep enough that they might sit him just to insure his health.
A win here could really give this young team some needed confidence heading into the season. Denver is currently the third youngest team in the league, so a big win against the former champs could do wonders for the psyche of this team.
If the Nuggets do want to stand a chance in this game they will have to play even better defense than they did in their season opener against the Clippers. Nikola Jokic had one of his best defensive efforts ever in that game, but it will take the effort of the entire unit before they could even dream of holding the Warriors to only 98 points.
The Nuggets are a pretty good up and coming team, but they’re not quite to the level of beat the Warriors good yet. Especially when they are facing them a night after they are facing another run and gun team, the Phoenix Suns.

Given the fact that the Warriors will have a full day of rest before tip-off, while the Nuggets are playing the second of a back to back, I give the edge to Golden State in this matchup.
This game looks like a blowout in the making. I’m sorry Denver fans, but your Nuggets just aren’t there yet.
