Denver had its guns drawn, chambers loaded and index finger on the trigger standing eye to eye with the Warriors on the cusp of Tuesday's Wild West showdown looking to make a statement to Golden State and the rest of the conference.

After Kevin Durant called the Nuggets an “elite” team at Tuesday morning’s shootaround and Stephen Curry countered by saying the high-stakes matchups that pitted the top two teams in the West against one another was a “big game” for the two-time defending champs, you had the feeling that tonight’s tilt was one the Warriors wanted and one they wanted badly.…...

The NBA is and always will be a star-driven league. It’s what makes nearly every night during the regular season must-see TV. James Harden might erupt for a 60-point triple-double on a random January evening. Nikola Jokic could record the fastest triple-double in league history on a quiet Thursday night in Milwaukee.
