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 and the sports calendar is less busy. They’re dominant and absolutely fabulous to watch on their home court. Prediction: They don’t lose a home game in the first two rounds en route to the Western Conference finals. Its always fun when there is new blood pursuing a deep playoff run. We have new blood on the other side in Golden State, even though they’re longshots in this series and not contenders for the crown. This is a rare postseason appearance for the Warriors franchise after one of their better regular seasons in years. Stephon Curry is one of my favorite players, mostly due to his explosive college career at Davidson. I am pumped to watch him show his stuff on his first ever NBA playoff stage. There’s just a lot of interesting players on both teams in this series. The Old Man Me is also excited Game 1 is a 5:30 start and not an 11 pm tip. Here’s a factoid for today’s Game 1: The Nuggets ate 23-12 ATS at home this year when the listed total is over 200 points. That’s pretty good. Want to know what’s better? That record is 12-1 ATS at home if the total, like today, is 210 points or higher. So I say lay the touchdown with the Nugs. And just because we’re suckers for him, the Over 25.5 points for Steph Curry. Here’s the full series betting board.

Denver Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried said Sunday that he will play in Game 2 of the Nuggets’ first-round playoff series against the Golden State Warriors on Tueaday night. Faried sat out of the Nuggets’ 97-95 victory in Gmae 1 on Saturday with an ankle injury.
For the Golden State Warriors success is not something they are used to. In the last 19 seasons the team has made the post season one other time, in the '06-07 season. Otherwise you have to look back to the 1993-94 campaign--when Chris Webber was Rookie of the Year.
After a solid season this year the Warriors were looking to take advantage of a Nuggets team that had been hit...
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,...
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.

McGee is starting to figure it out
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.
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...

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:
An already uphill battle just got tougher.
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...
