Golden State Warriors vs. Denver Nuggets: Postgame Grades and Analysis

The Golden State Warriors came out April 24 on fire against the Denver Nuggets, and four of five starters had at least 20 points in the game. The Warriors scored 35 points per quarter over the final three quarters, a pace which would have rendered the team 140 point scorers if not for a human-like 26 in the first period.

The 131-117 Dubs victory evens the series at 1-1 as the series heads to the Bay Area for games 3 and 4.

Not a lot went right for George Karl's Nuggets, who found themselves entirely without answers for Golden State's backcourt. The Dubs received 77 points from their three-guard rotation of Jarrett Jack, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.

For a team that is now without All-Star David Lee, there was no quit in Golden State. Their high marks reflect that in the grades.
