Hernangomez leads the Nuggets victory 132-110 against the Warriors

TODAY Sports

The Denver Nuggets sank an NBA-record 24 threes on Monday night in a 132-110 victory over the Golden State Warriors.

From the very start of the game, Denver looked like the livelier team. Golden State's surprising loss to a young Denver Nuggets team was the Warriors' ninth defeat of the season; if we can all recall, Stephen Curry and company lost only nine games last season on their way to an NBA-record 73 wins. The Nuggets are officially back - and they're not going anywhere anytime soon. No team had ever had a player have as good of an offensive season from beyond the arc as Steph Curry was having. Warriors G Shaun Livingston was away from the team for the birth of a baby. The Nuggets outrebounded the Warriors 52-27 tonight, thanks in large part to the large boy. Does he try to find minutes for Hernangomez at the expense of Danilo Gallinari and Wilson Chandler? That offense will go up against a Nuggets defense that is last in the National Basketball Association in defensive field-goal percentage, allowing opponents to go off at 48 percent from the floor, and surrendered at least 117 points in six of its last seven games. I do not envy Malone's decision.

On the season, the Warriors are averaging 118.6 points, 44.9 rebounds and 31.1 assists per game. That doesn't bode well considering that Golden State leads the league in scoring, assists and field-goal percentage. When he's in traffic, Jokic moves and leaps with his arms fully outstretched, which just makes everything he does harder to stop.

The San Antonio Spurs took full advantage of Golden State's setback, closing to within four games at the top of the Western Conference by beating the Indiana Pacers 110-106. Barton drove to the basket and connected on a floater as the Nuggets reeled off a quick-fire 8-0 run to put the game out of reach. Even with a skeleton line-up, the hosts were able to control the game. He finished with four rebounds and four assists. Pulling down 21 rebounds in a game is noteworthy regardless of who is crashing the boards and attempting to defend.

And on Monday night he proved it: the Spaniard tallied his first double-double with a career-high 27 points and 10 rebounds.

Jokic's line over the past three games? Wall, who sat out practice Sunday with a sprained left ankle, had 15 points and 14 assists.
