Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors will fake Nikola Jokic and the Denver Nuggets in round one of the 2022 NBA playoffs. The Warriors finished with the league’s third-best record at 53-29. The Nuggets fought through injuries to finish 6th in the West at 48-34.
Though Steph Curry was out for the Warriors’ final 12 games of the regular season, he is expected to be ready to play to start this series.
The Warriors are a formidable contender with Curry back, with Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green back in the playoffs for the first time since their Finals run in 2019.
Nikola Jokic was the do-it-all MVP candidate for Denver once again this season. This year, the center put up historical numbers and is expected to become the 13th back-to-back MVP in NBA history.
