They tried to send hitmen at Steph. Make no mistake. We went up 3-1 playing hard, clean basketball.
Shots were fired on Tuesday night between the Warriors and Nuggets, and the battlefield will undoubtedly still be bloody when the two teams walk onto Oracle Arena for Game 6 on Thursday.
Two flagrant fouls were assessed on the Warriors, and one flagrant should have been called against the Nuggets when Kenneth Faried unnecessarily pulled Jarrett Jack to the ground.
The two teams chirped back and forth at each other throughout the game, a pretty damn entertaining one that saw a frantic Warriors’ comeback fall short after being down by 22 points.
Marcus Thompson of the Bay Area News Group reports that a number of Nuggets called Stephen Curry “soft,” causing Jackson to use the “hitmen” reference when it seemed like Curry was being targeted by Denver.
