Posted April 24, 2013 on AP on Fox
Sleep deprived but back in the Bay Area, the Golden State Warriors returned home Wednesday calm and confident that their Mile High City masterpiece will be no fluke. The Warriors wrestled away home-court advantage by dominating Denver 131-117 on Tuesday night, evening the best-of-seven series at a game apiece. They shot nearly 65 percent, made 14 of their 25 3-point attempts and had four players score at least 20. The offensive outpouring has forced the Nuggets to do something in the playoffs they struggled with all season: win on the road. And with the way Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson are suddenly shooting, the raucous sellout crowd expected to pack Oracle Arena for the Game 3 tilt Friday night will hardly be Denver's most difficult obstacle.
