Denver Nuggets vs. Golden State Warriors: Game 4 Postgame Grades and Analysis
Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports
Sudnay night was the Steph Curry show, as the Golden State Warriors took Game 5 against the Denver Nuggets.

If we learned one thing Sunday night, it’s that the Golden State Warriors might be the most fun team to watch in the entire NBA.

Golden State played host to the Denver Nuggets, and Game 4 lived up to its fast-paced, exciting reputation, as the home team walked away with a 115-101 victory.

The first half was closely contested, but no matter how close the score was, the Warriors felt like they always had momentum. Not only was Golden State playing quickly, but it was playing efficiently. Denver was unable to match that efficiency, which resulted in sloppy play.

The Warriors ended the second quarter on an 11-0 run, and they did it with both offense and defense. They forced 14 turnovers in the first 24 minutes and converted 19 points off of those turnovers.

Golden State took a 12-point lead into halftime, but the worst sign for Denver was that Stephen Curry hadn’t yet made his impact on the game.

To begin the second half, Denver tried to steal momentum. The road team went on a quick 7-0 run, forcing three turnovers in the process, but as much momentum as Denver created, every ounce of it was ripped away when Curry finally took over.

The guard made five three-pointers in the third quarter alone, shifting things back in Golden State’s favor the rest of the way.

If there’s anything to note about this contest, it’s how much fun the Warriors were having. The entire way through, whether the game was close or not, Denver looked like a team simply trying to stick around.

It’s all smiles in Golden State heading into Game 5, and there will be plenty of smiles to come if the team can win on Tuesday.
