NBA Golden State Warriors vs Denver Nuggets – 19h00 04/18/2022: Warriors’ ambition.
Steve Kerr and his students taught the mining team a lesson in Game 1 of the first round of Play Offs, with a victory of up to 16 points. Curry’s return is an optimistic signal for Golden State, but looking at Jordan Poole’s form at the moment, Warriors fans must be dreaming about championship rings. The BO7 series is still quite long and Denver is not as appreciated as the owner of Chase Center, but they have the MVP of the annual season – Nikola Jokic.
The Golden State Warriors finished in 3rd place when the main season ended with a streak of 5 consecutive victories thanks to the brilliance of Klay and Jordan. The all-win record has just been extended in the last Game 1 Playoffs, with the core being the point guard with number 3, not Chef Curry. The Denver Nuggets finished sixth in the West, and Super Max signings Jamal Murray and Michael Porter could return in the Playoffs, but that hasn’t happened yet. With the current squad quality, it’s hard to see miracles for the mining team in Game 2.

Golden State Warriors after losing twice to Denver in the annual season. They clearly understood that Denver was not an easy opponent. In this year’s main season, the mining team had a better head-to-head record with 3 wins and only 1 defeat. When the Nuggets pitchers lost themselves in the first match at Ball Arena, this could not be considered the true strength of Jokic and his teammates. The Joker played well in this loss with 25 points and 10 rebounds, although he missed quite a few opportunities to help Denver overcome a difficult situation. Except for Barton, the remaining factors such as Gordon, Cousins all played below their strength with limited contribution to the play of the whole team. Hyland fell short of expectations outside of the three-point field goal, with only a 2/7 throw rate. Regarding Golden State, Jordan Poole for the first time participating in the Playoffs got 30 points and the exact rate of throwing the outer circle reached 5/7. Klay Thompson also threw very well with 19 points and 5/10 successful three-point field goals. The only problem is that Curry was pretty quiet in the first half of the game. Warriors will have the victory in the upcoming Game 2, with an even and high-performing staff.
Game 1 of this matchup saw a total score of up to 230, when The Bay warriors threw well in all 4 quarters. Two technical errors from Cousins and four early personal errors from Jokic gave the Warriors the upper hand. The upcoming match is expected to be a bit more difficult for Curry and his teammates, because of Denver’s solid play.
