Nuggets, Warriors Hurl Dirty-Play Accusations
A physical Game 5, which had its share of chippy moments, spilled into something downright ugly during Tuesday’s postgame as the teams slung mud at each other after the Nuggets’ 107-100 victory over the Warriors at the Pepsi Center.
“They tried to send hit men on Steph (Curry), but give them credit,” (Warriors coach Mark) Jackson said. “It wasn’t cocky basketball. It wasn’t magic. They outplayed us.”
“The screen on Curry at the foul line was a shot at his ankle. Clearly, that can’t be debated,” Jackson said. “I’ve got inside information that some people don’t like that brand of basketball, and they clearly didn’t co-sign it, so they wanted to let me know that they had no part in what was taking place.”
“They play dirty every night,” (Kenneth) Faried said. “They’ve targeted me.”
