Denver Nuggets: Friday Fastbreak


Nuggets news:

  • Denver Nuggets magical season ends at hands of Curry, Jackson///NuggLove

Steph Curry, Mark Jackson and the Golden State Warriors effectively ended the Denver Nuggets 2012-13 season Thursday night with a 92-88 victory in Oakland. Curry didn’t play a particularly great game–he finished with 22 points, 8 assist and 7 turnovers–but his hot shooting stretch in the third quarter sparked a run that gave the Warriors a lead and dug the Nuggets in a hole that they couldn’t get out of.

For Nuggets fans, the abrupt end in the 2012-13 playoffs will sting for a while. Denver was coming off its best regular season in franchise history, winning 57 games–38 at home– and locking up the No. 3 seed in the Western Conference.
