Research Notes

  • Nuggets attempted a shot, free-throw or had a turnover in the first 4 seconds of the shot clock during their transition.

  • The Nuggets got out in transition after 4 of the Warriors' made field goals, 13 missed field goals and 13 turnovers Saturday.

  • Andre Miller stepped up in the second half, scoring 20 of his 28 points, including the game winner. He went 8-of-12 in the second half and 4-of-6 in the paint. Miller was 3-of-4 from the free throw line on fouls drawn in the paint.

  • The Nuggets made it difficult for Stephen Curry Saturday as they contested 15 of his 20 shots and forced five turnovers.

  • NEXT LEVEL: 37-year-old Andre Miller made a game-winning shot for the Nuggets today with 1.3 seconds left. Miller is the 3rd-oldest player to make a go-ahead shot in the final 10 seconds of an NBA playoff game over the last 15 years. Gary Payton was 293 days older when he made a game-winner for the Heat in the 2006 playoffs, and John Stockton was 17 days older when he made a game-winner for the Jazz in the 1999 playoffs.

The previous 4 teams to enter the playoffs with at least 21 straight home wins all advanced to the NBA Finals, with 3 of the 4 teams winning the NBA title.

  • Stephen Curry is the first player to make a game-tying or go-ahead shot in the final 24 seconds of the 4th quarter or OT in his 1st career playoff game since Dwyane Wade for the Heat in 2004 against the Hornets.
