Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry was able to suit up for last night's contest against the Denver Nuggets despite his ankle injury. While he was able to play, the Nuggets held him to 15 points on 7-of-19 shooting from the field, and Warriors coach Mark Jackson told reporters after the game that he thinks Denver's success was due to the fact that they set "hit men" on Curry.
“They were the more physical team,” he said. “They were the aggressor. They hurt us in the first half by scoring the basketball, points in the paint. Made us pay for our turnovers. They tried to send hit men on Steph. But give them credit. It wasn’t cocky basketball; they outplayed us. It wasn’t magic; they outplayed us.”
