Nuggets, Warriors ready for physical Game 6
Question of the Day
Curry, who sprained his left ankle in Game 2 and has had two surgeries on his right ankle, stopped short of saying Faried _ or anybody _ targeted his ankles. After watching replays, Curry just said: “It is interesting. I don’t know what his intentions were.”
The Warriors nearly rallied from 22 points down behind their own physical play.
Bogut gave a two-handed shove to Faried’s neck after his hard screen on Curry in the first half, drawing a flagrant foul, and Draymond Green was whistled for a flagrant foul for body-checking Faried in the second half. Karl even jokingly asked whether Green played “football or basketball at Michigan State.”
Green also gave Denver’s Andre Miller a bloody lip and Ty Lawson took an elbow to the head. Nuggets center Kosta Koufos swatted at Curry’s arms when he shot well after the whistle blew, and Denver’s JaVale McGee and Warriors center Festus Ezeli each got called for illegal screens.
“I’m a good, dirty citizen,” he quipped while holding the award at Denver’s practice facility. “I think that’s what this trophy is. Yep, yep, yep. It’s a little dirty. I think that’s what it is.”
Jackson said he doesn’t think the physical play has rattled, or will rattle, his young team.
“We’re not concerned,” Jackson said. “When we play our brand of basketball, there’s no concern about guys getting out of character. We understand what we have to do.”
