Nicola Jokic (Denver) and Stephen Curry (Golden State). Jokic laughed at the battle of the superstars.
The Denver Nuggets won 134-117 in the 2022-2023 NBA regular league home game against the Golden State Warriors held at the Denver Ball Arena in Colorado on the 3rd (Korean time).
Denver, who ranked first in the Western Conference, won two games in a row and extended their lead against the second-place Memphis Grizzlies to four games. Nikola Jokic (22 points, 14 rebounds, 16 assists) recorded his 93rd triple-double, and Jamal Murray (33 points, 3 3-pointers, 5 rebounds, 8 assists) showed his firepower.
On the other hand, Golden State fell from 7th place in the Western Conference to 10th place after losing two straight games. Stephen Curry (28 points, 5 3-pointers, 5 rebounds, 5 assists) and Jordan Poole (22 points, 4 3-pointers, 3 rebounds, 5 assists) made a total of 19 3-pointers, but could not fill the void left by Klay Thompson.
The first quarter was a close game. Denver gave up 13 runs in less than 3 minutes after the start of the first quarter, but later changed the atmosphere by creating an even score distribution with Jokic at the fore. Denver finished the first quarter 34-35 by adding Murray’s five consecutive points at the end of the first quarter.
The second quarter was also a bloody battle of turnarounds. Murray continued to show off his firepower, and Curry set fire to Golden State, who showed off his firepower in and out. Yokichi also added strength by steadily accumulating points under the goal. The score was 70-69 at the end of the second quarter. 메이저놀이터

The 3rd quarter momentum continued into the 4th quarter. Denver allowed Golden State to pursue Curry at the beginning of the 4th quarter for a while, but Bruce Brown hit a 3-point shot in the middle of the 4th quarter and quickly turned the tide. Afterwards, Denver, who continued to lead with Jokichi at the forefront, widened the gap to 21 points thanks to Michael Porter Jr.’s five consecutive points about a minute before the end of the game. It was the moment Denver actually seized the victory.
