SAN FRANCISCO – Steph Curry preened for his teammate, knowing it wasn’t his show to celebrate.
Curry, who came off the bench in Saturday’s decisive 123-107 Game 1 win over the Nuggets, wanted teammate Jordan Poole to feel the limelight. At least for a night, Poole more than filled Curry’s shoes with five 3-pointers en route to 30 points.
Klay Thompson buried five 3-pointers for good measure.
Even with a hobbled Curry, the Warriors looked every bit as dangerous as advertised. Their 16-11 advantage from the 3-point line was a glaring mark, as was Nikola Jokic’s efficiency. It took Jokic 25 shots to get to 25 points, a ratio the Warriors would be more than happy to maintain. With only six assists, the Warriors swarmed and eliminated Jokic’s best weapon: his vision.
