5 stats you wouldn't believe from the Nuggets' win over the Warriors

Alyssa BaileyFeb 15, 2017

Nikola Jokic returned a triple-double (17 points, 21 rebounds and 12 assists) while Kevin Durant scored 25 points for the Warriors, whose ninth defeat of the campaign equals the amount of losses they suffered in the entire regular season past year.

Jokic set career highs in rebounds (21) and assists (12) to go with 17 points, while rookie Juancho Hernangomez scored a season-high 27 points, including six three-pointers.

The win sees Denver move to 25-30 on the year and helps the Nuggets tighten their grip on the Western Conference 8th seed.

Golden State's Stephen Curry had a awful night, meanwhile, making just 1 of 11 three-point attempts and 4 of 18 total field goals. It was an ominous sign on a night the Warriors deviated from much of what has made them elite.

OUR PREDICTION: The over is a ideal 8-0 in the last eight meetings between these two teams and is 5-0 in the last five meetings in Denver. Sure, but it's a steep climb when facing Golden State. They may have entered their game yesterday not visibly appearing to be a threat, as a losing team, but they turned out to be. In addition to that, they made history in fine fashion.

Will tonight's Warriors and Nuggets game be high-scoring for bettors at 9:00PM ET? The Warriors trailed by as many as 28 points in the contest.

The Warriors came out of the locker room with some energy as Kevin Durant began to catch fire, however Nikola Jokic destroyed the Warriors with incredible passing, relentless rebounding and a soft touch around the rim to finish the third quarter with his second career triple-double. "I feel like in certain situations we force ourselves to get into a flow and are really precious with the ball", Warriors sixth man Andre Iguodala told ESPN while describing a first-quarter run on Saturday that turned the game in their favor.
