We didn’t know how loose the Nuggets were playing until we saw them at Oracle Thursday night on TNT. The Warriors needed a home win a lot more than the Nuggets needed a useless road victory, but while the Dubs played stiff while giving up a big second half lead, the Nuggets were loosey goosey in a surprise, 100-99, win.
