At the beginning of the fourth quarter, the Warriors were leading the Nuggets by a score of 13 at home.
However, they gradually lost that lead as a result of a series of missed shots by Golden State (3-of-14 shooting outside the paint in the fourth quarter), while Denver hit virtually everything that counted more than anything else.
After Jokic had tied the game with :26 seconds remaining, this occurred after Jamal Murray stole a pass from Stephen Curry. Both players were involved in the incident.
In the year 2024, the shot of the year may have occurred four days into the year. The expression that is on Curry's face is telling. In the interview that he gave before leaving, Jokic stated that he had not called the bank.
A total of four blown leads of at least 17 points have been committed by the Warriors, who currently hold the 11th seed in the Western Conference and have a record of 16-18 for the season.
For Golden State and its supporters, who were attempting to come to terms with the fact that the window of opportunity for a championship had closed, this was the latest in a string of blows to the gut that they had to endure.
As he has been for the most of the season, Klay Thompson has been inconsistent, Steve Kerr is looking for rotations that are effective, and the Warriors might have benefited from Draymond Green's defense in this matchup.
After the game was over, Jokic finished with 34 points, 10 assists, and nine rebounds, which was just one point shy of a triple-double. Jamal Murray scored 25 points, while Aaron Gordon scored 30. At the end of the game, Curry led the Warriors with 30 points.
