Golden State Warriors Basketball

Top Seed on the Line for Nuggets and Warriors

The Denver Nuggets and the Golden State Warriors will on Tuesday when at Oracle Arena. The battle for the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference goes is up for grabs. The defending-champion Warriors hold a one-game lead for the top spot. They showed off just how good they can be in a 137-90 thrashing of the Charlotte Hornets on Sunday.

TV: 10:30 p.m. ET, TNT, NBCS Bay Area (Golden State) LINE: Warriors -8.5; O/U: 220.

Golden State shot 60.2% from the field. They went 21-of-33 while dishing out 41 assists on 53 made field goals in Sunday’s victory. The breakout came two nights after a contentious overtime loss at Minnesota that left the team frustrated with the officiating. Denver had a chance to go into Tuesday’s battle tied with Golden State but watched its offense fall apart in the second half against the Wizards. They suffered a 95-90 home loss.

This, That, and a Dart Throw

The Denver Nuggets are 51-25 on the season. They are averaging 94.6 points in its last five games. As a result, the team has scored 90 or fewer points in three of those contests. Every single one of them are losses. Point guard Jamal Murray was held to 12 points in 22 minutes on Sunday. He was hobbled with an ankle sprain and is questionable for Tuesday.

The Golden State Warriors are 52-24 on the season. Golden State did not have a starter log more than Draymond Green’s 29 minutes on Sunday. That is a good thing with the battle with Denver in high gear and the playoffs approaching. Curry and Klay Thompson combined to go 11-of-17 from 3-point range in the shellacking. Guard Quinn Cook made the most of his extra minutes off the bench. He went 5-of-6 from beyond the arc en route to 21 points. Denver won the first meeting on Oct. 21, but Golden State took the last two by a total of 48 points.

Prediction: Warriors 124, Nuggets 105
