Golden State Warriors vs Denver Nuggets takes place in the NBA playoffs Round 1 Game 5 on Tuesday night, with the Warriors looking to finish off the Nuggets and complete a 4-1 series win tonight. The game is scheduled to tip off at 8 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
The Warriors and Stephen Curry will look to keep the three pointers flowing tonight against Denver in Game 5, and will be confident that they have what it takes to complete things tonight.
However, the Nuggets are scrapping and will be hoping to claim the win to help them live to fight again another day.
The Warriors had previously been touted as a presumed sweep victim, but they have completely turned predictions on their head, and are not one of the most exciting squads, and are on the brink of taking down a much more highly favored opponent. The three pointers have been a major reason for their success.
David Lee's absence had caused some to write off the Warriors as no hopers for the post season. Especially after they went 1-0 down in the series and were also up against the No. 3 team in the Western Conference – a team that had only lost three times in 41 home games.
However, Stephen Curry has come storming into some amazing form, and Klay Thompson, Harrison Barnes, and Jarrett have been on fire from beyond the arc.
Some had expected the Warriors not to be able to keep up their offensive onslaught but until now they have continued to keep their newly found stride and the Nuggets have been unable to cope.
