Golden State Warriors
The Denver Nuggets and Golden State Warriors will face each other in the 1st round of the West Playoffs, which should be a very high scoring series. Both teams are among the best in the NBA on offense and scoring, with multiple players on both teams who can score 20+ points on any given day. This will be a very exciting playoff series.
Yes the Nuggets have lost Danilo Gallinari, their second leading scorer, but luckily for the Nuggets, they do not rely on any one player, as they spread the ball around more than any team in the NBA. They still have 8 players who will play significant minutes and Wilson Chandler has done a brilliant job, coming in and picking up the scoring slack with the loss of Gallinari. The offense revolves around their sparkplug point guard, Ty Lawson, who loves the fast break and may be the fastest player in the NBA. They love to run and dunk and the Nuggets perform the fast break as well as any team in the NBA, not named the Clippers.
The Warriors have 2 stars,...

It’s a shame one of theses teams had to lose this game because both teams battled from the beginning to the end, in what was an exciting game. Denver Nuggets veteran point guard Andre Miller was virtually unstoppable all game and with the score tied with 14.5 seconds to go, he put the team on his back.
Check the video out here:

JaVale McGee doing JaVale McGee things. JaVale McGee reminded folks that he isn’t here to mess around. McGee threw down this monstorous dunk during the end of the second quater. The best part is McGee’s reaction to the dunk, throwing Bogut to the ground.
Behind the 28 points from Andre Miller and the game-winning shot, the Nuggets pulled off the thrilling Game 1 win, 97-95.
Playoff time for the Warriors. That means, in accordance with the Geneva Convention, some local unknown artist HAS to put out a playoff anthem for the team.
And so here’s the Warriors’ anthem for their 2013 playoff run. It’s called “The Show” by Cap D. But Cap D isn’t some struggling local rapper the team brought in off the street. He happens to be the team’s Vice President...
G.S. Warriors (6) @ Denver Nuggets (3)
The Denver Nuggets are solid 60.9% favorites vs the Warriors in game one. The average score after 10,000 simulations is 109-106. The hot trend of the day is to take the points and Warriors on the spread. You’d get 8.5 points, and are expected to cover that 62% of the time. It’s probably safe to take the over on this game...
Denver Nuggets center Javale McGee’s athletic ability is off the charts. The question has just always been whether or not he has it all together upstairs as well. This dunk against Andrew Bogut of the Warriors shows that when he does have it together, the finished product can spectacular.

Forrest Gump would like this series a lot. Why? Because there will be lots and lots of RUNNING.

The 2013 NBA playoffs are underway and already teams are giving us tasty highlights to enjoy.
Case in point, Nuggets' JaVale McGee.
Late in the second quarter, with Denver down in the scoreboard heading into halftime, McGee gave his team some momentum heading into the half with one filthy dunk right over Warriors' Andrew Bogut.
Check out JaVale sending the ball down...

It only took the second game of the 2013 NBA playoffs to possibly have the best “poster dunk” of these playoffs. As you might figure, Denver Nuggets center JaVale McGee had something to do with it.
The play happened in the second quarter of game one between the Nuggets and the Warriors as McGee took a feed from Andre Igoudala and threw down a terribly nasty dunk on Andrew Bogut:
The playoffs are coming, which means NBA fans will be bombarded with talk about LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Durant. And with good reason. April, May and June are when true stars shine and pretend ones fade, and all three of those bona fide superstars have experience with both triumph and failure.
It takes more than one player to win a championship, however, and even James...
Denver Nuggets center JaVale McGee put Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut on a poster with this monster dunk.
The Nuggets are a better team than the Warriors. They’ve won 10 more games. They’re one of the hottest teams in the NBA over the last four or five months. And they dominate at home. I can see the Warriors pulling off the upset (out of the Spurs, Thunder and Nuggets, the Nuggets were the most favorable opponent), but there’s no denying the Nuggets are the superior team. Here...
Golden State at Denver
This might be the first round series I am looking the most forward to watching. The Nuggets with their style of play and killer home numbers makes them the most intriguing team in this whole field. I didn’t get a ton of chances to just sink right into a lot of their games during the regular season and cant wait to do so now that the playoffs have started...
Curbing Stephen Curry and his three-point prowess is job No. 1 for the Denver Nuggets.
Curry leads the Golden State Warriors into the Pepsi Center for a first-round series starting Saturday that many consider the marquee matchup of the first round because it pits two exciting, high-octane teams that love to run.
