Mark Jackson accused the Denver Nuggets of taking cheap shots at Stephen Curry during the Golden State Warriors' loss in Game 5. Jackson said that Denver people warned him of what would take place with "inside info". "They tried to send hit men on Steph," said Jackson. "It wasn't magic, they outplayed us." Curry agreed that he seemed targeted by the Nuggets. Kenneth Faried responded to accusations from Jackson with a similar sentiment. "They play dirty every night. They have targeted me," said Faried. Curry, visibly frustrated following the game, also engaged in a verbal altercation with a fan while exiting through the tunnel.
