After trailing 42-40 at halftime, Golden State outscored Denver 33-20 in the third quarter and then held on for the victory despite committing 10 turnovers in the fourth quarter. The sixth-seeded Warriors advanced to the second round of the Western Conference playoffs where they will play the second-seeded San Antonio Spurs, who swept the L.A. Lakers in the first round.

Andre Iguodala scored 24 points and grabbed nine rebounds for Denver, while teammate Ty Lawson had 17 points and six assists. The Nuggets had hoped to beat Golden State on Thursday night and force Game 7 in Denver on Saturday.
