The Denver Nuggets…better than the Warriors? I think not! Say goodbye Denver, it’s time you take a seat and watch the real champions show you how it’s done.

The Golden State Warriors, reigning champions of the NBA, had gotten off to a pretty rocky start to the season. But the season took a turn for the better starting with the first win of their 9 game win streak against the Kings on Saturday January 5th. This was followed by 3 more wins that led to the incredible win that the warriors had over the Nuggets on January 15th.

The Nuggets game was probably the true turning point for the Warriors. In only the first quarter, the Warriors scored 51 points, setting a new record and going down in NBA history. After being stuck in second place for quite a bit of time behind the Nuggets, Golden State took a win in Denver, 142-111. There was not a single tie or moment where the Warriors fell behind throughout the entire game.  

What does this mean? Well, that’s simple. The Golden State Warriors are the best team in the NBA. They don’t claim that they have one star player. And they don’t need to. They don’t win these games by turning to one person and begging for help, they do it because everyone in the team plays a part. Strength in Numbers is better than One Strong Player. Who’s the best now, Denver?

Think the Nuggets still have a chance? Or that the Warriors will be kicked down again? Leave a comment below!
