One day removed from an impressive victory at home against the Denver Nuggets, the Golden State Warriors put on their worst performance of the season as they lost to the same Denver Nuggets team, 123-84. This marks the largest margin of victory for Denver in the all-time series between the two teams.
This was an abysmal performance for the whole Warriors team. Only three players scored in double figures and none scored above 17 points. David Lee had one of his worst games of the season, shooting 4-15 while scoring only 10 points. Klay Thompson led the team in scoring with 17 points.
The rebound discrepancy was astounding. The Nuggets won the rebounding battle by a margin of +33. The worst part about that for the Warriors is that the leading rebounder on the team only had five rebounds, and it was by third string center Mickell Gladness.
Kenneth Faried of the Nuggets had the best game of his young career. Faried finished with 27 points and 17 rebounds, both career highs. David Lee had no answer for Faried and the team as a whole was outmatched from the opening tip.Tags: Basketball, David Lee, Denver Nuggets, Golden State, Golden State Warriors, Kenneth Faried, Klay Thompson, NBA
