Curry on target as Golden State down Nuggets

Steph Curry scored 33 points as the Golden State Warriors saw off the challenge of the Denver Nuggets

The reigning Western Conference champions had a scare on wednesday week when Curry tweaked his ankle in a win over Dallas.

But he showed no signs of discomfort as he helped his side to a 20-8 lead early in the opening quarter.

Denver rallied in the second quarter and nibbled away at the Warriors lead thanks to a superb performance from twenty-one-year-old Spaniard Juancho Hernangomez.

But there was no stopping Curry on the night.

He shot 7-of-13 from three-point range and his game tally of 33-points and seven-assists helped Golden State take a 99-75 lead heading into the fourth and final quarter.

Curry had done enough and sat out the fourth, but watched on as his team-mates sealed the deal winning through 125-101.
