Warriors lose first round Game 1 to Nuggets
The Warriors slowed down the Nuggets transition game. They kept Denver leading scorer Ty Lawson in check. They held high-scoring Denver 11 points below its average.
But Golden State suffered a 97-95 loss to the host Nuggets on Saturday because it had no answer for Andre Miller.
The Nuggets veteran point guard converted the game-winning layup in the final seconds, negating the biggest shot of point guard Stephen Curry’s career, and breaking the Warriors hearts. Miller scored 18 of his 28 points in the fourth quarter to thwart Golden State’s upset bid.
