Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson was far from pleased following Game 5, stating that the Denver Nuggets were overly aggressive and sent out “hit-men” on star guard Stephen Curry.
The Nuggets responded by revealing their belief that the Warriors “play dirty” every night, but know that the most important thing is that they survive Game 6 and take the series into a decider in Denver.
The Oracle Arena promises to be a sell-out again, and it arguably produces one of the best atmosphere in playoff basketball as Golden State will need an inspirational effort to seal the series win.
However, with the emotions and hostility building between the two teams, it may come down to who can remain composed and execute their game-plan to the best of their ability.
The Nuggets used their big men inside the paint to great effect to claw their way back into the series, and despite Jackson’s statement, which suggested Kenneth Faried purposely tried to kick out at Curry’s injured left ankle, they will be untroubled and unlikely to change tactics as they look to dominant a smaller Warriors team.
Golden State nearly rallied from 22 points down behind their own physical play last time out, but will require a solid shooting display from their young and talented roster to complete the job and silence the Nuggets in the best way possible.
