After the Nuggets tied the score at 69-all on a Mason Plumlee layup midway through the third, the Warriors went on a 24-12 run to close the quarter and carried a double-digit lead throughout most of the fourth. But Golden State sealed the win with an 8-2 run midway through the fourth quarter that expanded the Warriors' lead to 18 and ignited a capacity crowd at Oracle Arena as Denver gradually started to turn their attention towards Wednesday night's opponent, the Atlanta Hawks. Golden State won going away 124-114.

Harrison Wind and Christian Clark recap the Denver Nuggets’ two wins from this weekend and attempt to put their defensive uptick in perspective. How much of Denver’s success on that end of the floor has to do with their opponent just missing open shots and how much of it is actually the Nuggets’ defense? Was Nikola Jokic’s performance against Jusuf Nurkic and Portland just another good game or a significant step in his career? Will Emmanuel Mudiay return to Denver’s rotation on Tuesday when he’s expected to be in the lineup versus Utah? Will Nuggets coach Michael Malone stick with a shorter rotation? That and more on the Monday edition of the BSN Nuggets Podcast.
