"I think we've been trying to win the title for a while, and we had a couple years before we got James [Harden] where we probably didn't have as much of a chance to win, where we were probably a little more future-focused".
Following a sub-par performance in a win against the New York Knicks, Jamal Murray provided the necessary spark for the Nuggets as they beat the Sacramento Kings, 117-113. Nikola Jokic, an early MVP candidate this season, racked up 26 points, 13 rebounds and 6 assists.
James, en route to his fifth straight game with 40 or more points, hit an incredible game-winning three-pointer in overtime, with Draymond Green contesting it and shocked the entire Oracle Arena. Backup point guard Delon Wright had 15 points while combo forward Pascal Siakam had 10 points, 7 assists and 6 rebounds. In his last 12 games, the Swiss big man is averaging 14.8 rebounds per game. The Warriors appeared to be headed for an easy night as they held a 20-point lead in the first half.
