The Golden State Warriors are coming off an emotional contest in Kevin Durant’s return to OKC. They destroyed that game, and odds are, they’ll do the same in this one.
*All statistics, rankings, standings and trends are current as of this writing at 4:00 a.m. ET on Monday, February 13, 2017.
Golden State Warriors
The Golden State Warriors enter this contest averaging 118.6 points per game. That number is good enough for first in the NBA.
Defensively, this group is allowing just 105.3 points per contest. That number is good enough for 12th in the league.
The catch when it comes to those defensive numbers is that they have more to do with pace than defensive mediocrity.
On the year, the Warriors are second in the league in terms of pace. But in terms of defensive efficiency, this group is second as well behind the San Antonio Spurs.
Against the Nuggets, the strategy is usually to control the pace…but the problem here is that the Warriors want to push the tempo and control the pace from the starting seconds to the final buzzer.
This group will push the tempo and look to simply outscore a team that tries the same thing on a nightly basis…just at a different level.
The Denver Nuggets enter this game posting 110.5 points per game. That number is good enough for fourth in the league.
Defensive, this team is posting 111.9 points per game. That number is only good enough for 28th in the league.
Against the Warriors, the only true hope is to simply outscore them. There’s (honestly) no hope is using your defense considering how many weapons this group has on offense.
If the Nuggets can shoot at or around 50 percent for the game, they have a chance.
If they can’t, this one will be over early — and not in the Nugs favor.
