Stephen Curry danced and shot his way to a game-high 33 points Thursday night in Denver, leading the Golden State Warriors to a 125-101 victory.
Kevin Durant’s string of 72 straight regular-season games with at least 20 points came to an end.
Rookie guard Jamal Murray led the Nuggets with 14 points.
Per the AP:
Durant finished with 18 points. He remained tied with Michael Jordan for the fourth-longest streak of 20 or more points in league history.
“It was cool while it lasted,” said Durant, whose streak began on Nov. 23, 2015, while with Oklahoma City. “Up there with some great names. But I’ve got bigger goals in mind.”
Curry tweaked his ankle in a win over Dallas on Wednesday, but it didn’t appear to hamper him against the Nuggets. He finished 7 of 13 from 3-point range, including one that he turned into a four-point play. That shot even impressed him as he lay on the ground and celebrated. […] “One of those you don’t expect to go in,” Curry said. “But that was a terrible celebration.”
