The Nuggets actually played a really good game until the last minute. There were two plays in the last minute that hurt the Nuggets. The first was Kenyon Martin shooting a 22-foot jumper toward the end of the shot clock and the second was the missed goaltend on a tip by Kendrick Perkins.
The Nuggets had the opportunity to go up three or four but they were forced to take the bad shot by Martin. If they could have scored, the outcome of the game possibly would have been different. Then the repercussion of this miss was the missed goaltend by Kendrick Perkins. If they would've scored on the previous possession, the tip in wouldn't have mattered as much.
Other than that, the Nuggets played a great game. George Karl came out and said most of the shots Durant and Westbrook made were contested jumpers and that he was not going to send double teams at them. If this is the case, the Nuggets need to work on shutting down everyone else.
If the Nuggets can force Westbrook and Durant to take the majority of the shots, then they should be able to win. A long as there isn't major productions from bench players, the Nuggets should be fine.
