Stephen Curry wasn’t going to have two off nights in a row. After shooting 7-of-20 from the field Game 1 on Saturday, Curry had 30 points to lead the Golden State Warriors to a 131-117 win over the Denver Nuggets to tie the series at 1-1.
Curry and Klay Thompson put on a shooting clinic, combining for 51 points on 21-of-34 shooting. Jarrett Jack added 24 points, and Harrison Barnes had 23.
The win came after Golden State lost David Lee for the rest of the season with a torn right hip flexor in Game 1, and served as a momentum shifter as they continue the series on their home court.
Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried played 21 minutes after missing Game 1 with an ankle injury, but didn’t have much of an impact. The Warriors suffered their own ankle scare in the third quarter with Curry, which turned out to be a false alarm.
Six Nuggets players scored in double figures. Ty Lawson and Corey Brewer had 19 points apiece, Andre Iguodala and Andre Miller each had 18, and Wilson Chandler and Anthony Randolph both had 14.
With the series tied, the Warriors host the Nuggets on Friday at 10:30pm Eastern time on TNT.
