Warriors edge Nuggets, take series lead

Updated: April 27, 2013


It was a lightning fast-paced battle and
Stephen Curry’s ankle held up just fine.

Curry tallied 29 points and 11 assists in the Golden State Warriors’ 110-108
triumph over the Denver Nuggets in Game 3 of this Western Conference first-
round series.

It was a hectic final few moments.

Wilson Chandler nailed a left corner three to pull Denver within 109-108 with
16.5 seconds remaining. The Warriors called timeout with 9.4 ticks left, but
were called for a five-second violation on the ensuing inbounds.

Ty Lawson, who finished with a playoff career-high 35 points, turned the ball
over on Denver’s next possession with 5.3 seconds to go. Harrison Barnes split
a pair of foul shots with 3.7 seconds on the clock and Andre Iguodala’s heave
from the right side of the midcourt line clanked off the front of the rim as
Golden State escaped with the victory to take a 2-1 series lead.
