DENVER (AP) - The Denver Nuggets brain trust has plenty of time on its hands now to contemplate whether it was a flaw in the team's makeup or just a bad matchup that led to yet another early exit from the playoffs.
The Nuggets were first-round flops for the fourth straight season, taken out this time by the gritty Golden State Warriors in six games.
Coach George Karl said the series was lost in Game 2, when the Warriors, despite losing All-Star David Lee to a hip injury, ended Denver's 24-game winning streak at the Pepsi Center and seized the homecourt advantage that the third-seeded Nuggets had worked so hard to attain.
