Denver’s offensive prowess relied on the collective firepower of their starting lineup, particularly the standout performance of Jamal Murray, who dropped a game-high 28 points. The Warriors, on the other hand, showcased their depth, with Andrew Wiggins leading the charge, contributing 22 points, and displaying robust perimeter defense. The dynamic bench duo of Dario Šarić and Chris Paul combined for 27 points, providing a crucial spark. Even Trayce Jackson-Davis, with a modest stat line, played a pivotal role. Yet, the outcome remained uncertain until the final moments.

Despite a resilient second-quarter rally and a back-and-forth battle, Curry and Klay Thompson struggled to find their scoring rhythm, resulting in a narrow 120-114 loss for the Warriors.
