Curry and Jack ensure Golden State take 2-1 series lead.
Despite a nervy finish to the game, the Golden State Warriors managed to hold off the Denver Nuggets on Friday night to secure a 110-108 win.
Victory sees them move into a 2-1 series lead, as Stephen Curry played a vital role scoring 29 points and dishing out 11 assists. The 24-year-old played through a sprained ankle as the Warriors were made to sweat through the last minute.
With Harrison Barnes making a free throw with just 3.7 second remaining, the Nuggets almost stole the game when Andre Iguodala’s half-court shot at the buzzer hit the rim, but fortunately for the home team it bounced to safety.
Jarrett Jack had 23 points, seven assists and five rebounds in his second consecutive start as the Warriors continued with their three-guard line-up following the injury sustained by power forward David Lee.
As for the Nuggets, they were led by Ty Lawson who had a game-high 35 points as well as 10 assists. However, despite four of his team-mates reaching double scoring figures, it wasn’t enough to help them over the line.
