DENVER NUGGETS VS GOLDEN STATE WARRIORSTime and Date: Wednesday 1st of May from The Pepsi Center Coverage: LIVE at 10:00am AEDT (See TV Guide for other games and times) In a series that has been rather unpredictable to date, it has set the stage for one emerging star in the NBA, Stephen Curry. Curry entered the Playoffs on a high after surpassing the record for made 3-pointers in a season, which was set by Ray Allen in his hay day. Then he became the absolute focal point of a Golden State Warriors Playoff run when David Lee was injured and done for the season. Game 2 made fans cringe when he rolled his ankle, now he soldiers on in pain for an elusive NBA Chmapionship. Averaging 30 points and 11 assists in his last three games, his pain threshold has grown and his production has gone up. In a Playoff series that has severely lacked solid defence, Denver must contain the Curry effect if they are to pursue to the second round. The Nuggets are down 3-1 in this series and even though every game is now a must win, two out of the three games remaining will be at home. Have faith in George Karl to get on his guys. If any coach knows how to stop Curry one of them will be coach Karl. Watch For: Ty Lawson. Keep in mind Denver is still missing ace Danilo Gallinari, Ty Lawson has also taken the reigns of this team in his absence and the speedy guard will be testing Curry on every possession offensively and defensively.
Has Golden State got the edge to close out the series in Game 5?
