Stephen Curry and David Lee will need to be at their best to beat the Nuggets.

The Golden State Warriors have made the playoffs for the first time since the “We Believe” squad of the 2006-07 season, and they earned a first-round matchup with the Denver Nuggets.

These two top rebounding teams will put on a show, and it will depend on who can execute the fundamentals that will determine the outcome of the series.

This seven-game series will feature the sharp-shooter Stephen Curry and double-doubler David Lee versus the Nuggets’ guard Ty Lawson and glass cleaner Kenneth Faried.  During the season and on paper, these teams are very even, but this is playoff time and things will be amped up.

Denver has the season series advantage (3-1), but the Warriors let one of the games get away from them in the final minutes. Look for a frenetic fast-paced series that will feature a lot of shooting, a lot of scoring, and a lot of highlights.     

The home-court advantage of the Nuggets will play a large part in this series, even with the season-ending injury to Danilo Gallinari and recent injuries to Faried’s ankle and Ty Lawson’s plantar fascia tear.  The Nuggets posted a 38-3 record at Pepsi Center.

Will those injuries be significant enough to limit the Nuggets, and can the Warriors’ “#WeBelong” get them to the second round?
