Three teams pour in 140 points on high-scoring night in National Basketball Association

Warriors stars Steph Curry and Kevin Durant ‘sent a message’ says Nuggets coach after loss

Denver is now in second place in the Western Conference with a 29-14 record.

We've talked about this before here at Warriors Wire: the Warriors offense is at its absolute best when Draymond Green is seeing the floor well.

The Golden State Warriors set an National Basketball Association record with 51 first-quarter points during Tuesday night's 142-111 victory over the Nuggets. "We've changed too but the league has certainly become more athletic in many ways, you've got more position-less guys, it's a better shooting league, everybody's playing faster".

"I was a Rams fan growing up", Kerr said. They hunted threes aggressively.

Philadelphia forward Jimmy Butler's first game against his former team was no contest as the 76ers destroyed the Minnesota Timberwolves 149-107.

Joel Embiid led the hosts with 31 points and 13 rebounds for his league-leading 37th double-double of the campaign, as Jimmy Butler added an efficient 19 points in his first game against the team he demanded to be traded from a year ago - a deal that sent forwards Robert Covington and Dario Saric to the Wolves.

The last time these two teams faced off, the Nuggets were the victors by a score of 100-98 as Juancho Hernangomez blocked Damion Jones at the rim - so this was a revenge game for the Warriors. "We know who's been playing well - and to be honest, we haven't played as well against the playoff teams in the West".

"When we make shots, we're a tough team to beat", Curry said. "It's going to be exciting to see where we are". Denver is also coming off an embarrassing loss at home to the Warriors, so I would expect they did some soul searching since Tuesday and will come out motivated.

In Indianapolis, the Indiana Pacers led wire-to-wire in a 131-97 victory over the Phoenix Suns. The result of the game will come later on in the evening, and no matter what ends up happening (in all likelihood), it will not top what Golden State did in the game's first quarter.

"So we know what they are capable of and their "big three" combined for 89 points tonight". "It was just an onslaught".

Trae Young scored 24 points and added 11 assists and six rebounds as Atlanta blew out visiting Oklahoma City.

The Warriors came out of the gates firing, shooting a red-hot 19-for-25 (76 percent) from the field and 10-for-14 from 3-point range in the first 12 minutes. When Denver got within 12 with 2:11 left in the second quarter, the Warriors closed the half with a 7-0 run.

Giannis Antetokounmpo posted his 13th career triple-double with 12 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists, leading host Milwaukee to a win over Miami.
