The Denver Nuggets were in first place in the Western Conference entering last night’s highly-anticipated home game against the defending NBA champion Golden State Warriors…and then they promptly lost by 31 points.
The Warriors set an NBA record by scoring 51 points in the first quarter, a 12-minute span during which they shot a ridiculous 76% from the field. How did things get off to such a bad start for Denver?

Is it a coincidence that the Nuggets were blown out in a game in which former “Bachelor” and brief State House candidate Ben Higgins took the ceremonial first shot?
Yes, it’s just a coincidence. Probably.
