DENVER (AP) - Curbing Stephen Curry and his three-point prowess is job No. 1 for the Denver Nuggets.
Curry leads the Golden State Warriors into the Pepsi Center on Saturday for the opener of a first-round playoff series that pits two teams that love to run up and down the court.
While the Nuggets pile on points in the paint better than any team in the league, the Warriors do their damage from the fringe. They led the NBA with a 40.3 three-point percentage.
Curry shot his way into NBA history by sinking 272 3-pointers this season, three more than former record-holder Ray Allen had for Boston in 2005-06.
