The Nuggets entered the game as a team in both the top ten in offensive and defensive efficiency, but took a big step back as they allowed the Warriors to score 142 points on the night and shoot 60 percent from the field.
The Warriors connected on 10 of their 14 3-pointers in the period, which was also a franchise record for a single quarter.
The old mark for an opening quarter was 50 points, by several teams. Three of them featured the Nuggets as their opponent - though none occurred in the Mile-High 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.
Malik Beasley scored 22 points, Jamal Murray had 21 and Nikola Jokic added 17 points and eight assists for Denver, which had its 12-game home winning streak snapped. They rank second in scoring (117.4 ppg), first in FG percentage (48.6), fourth in 3-point percentage (38.5) and first in free-throw percentage (82.4).
