The Golden State Warriors, former NBA Finalists, traveled to Denver to play a depleted Nuggets team tonight. But in the 4th things went evenly for both sides as they each scored 25 points for the gap to remain unchanged as the Nuggets picked up the big 22 point win to snap the Warriors' 3-game winning streak. The Warriors attempted 32 3-pointers and hit eight of them. As their main backup to Curry, he has averages of 5.3 points, 2 rebounds, and 1.7 assists per game.

Warriors: Wednesday they host the Kings, a team they lost to in overtime, 109-106 on February 4.

Seven Nuggets sank 3-pointers, but the dizzying array of long-range shots didn't include any by Jokic. Mason will join forces with up-and-coming star Nikola Jokic, Kenneth Faried, and Darrell Arthur to form one of the deepest and most formidable frontcourts in the National Basketball Association. The Warriors still manage to be at the top position of the Western Conference.

While the center didn't contribute to the long-distance barrage (though he's capable of it-shooting 36.3 percent from deep), Jokic dominated in other facets, dropping a beastly triple-double of 17 points, 21 rebounds, and 12 assists, with many of those dimes leading to open triples. On the court the offensive stats the Nuggets put up were enormous.

GOLDEN STATE KEY TRENDS: The Warriors are 8-1-1 against the spread in their last 10 games after allowing 100 points or more in their previous contest. Previous year they set multiple, including breaking the Chicago Bulls win record by winning 73 games.

Of course, Jokic is scoring and assisting at an elite level but he's also learned how to use angles and his frame to track down rebounds without a resemblance of athletic ability.

First, a career-high 40 points against Kristaps Porzingis and the Knicks at Madison Square Garden while also contributing nine rebounds and five assists. Will Barton added 24 points and Jameer Nelson had 23.

Jokic's line over the past three games?
