Denver's percentages weren't that great either, especially their 3-point shooting and free throwing.
What won them the game was the turnover differential. I think they only had 1 or 2 turnovers all 2nd half.
I'm not worried about FG%. We'll hit our fair share of shots and 3-pointers. It's all about turnover differential.
Neither team played well at all in my opinion. Very poorly played on both sides other than Andre Miller. The Warriors needed to take advantage of a bad effort by the Nuggets and they couldnt do it. Hopefully they will next time.

I was a little surprised to see Green on Miller....Green's not a terrible defender, but on their PG? Yeah he's 37, but dude was ballin, you knew he was going to hold for the last shot and just break Green down. Thompson might have been a better choice, plus no one (Bogut?) collapsed to help...sure miller could've kicked it out, but I'd rather take my chances on a jumper than just letting him abuse Green all the way to the rim.
But it is not over yet! We still have at least 2 home games to go. Even if we do lose this series, the experience we gained from this will be priceless. We will be ready for a deeper playoff run next year.
