The defending NBA Champions played their first preseason game yesterday against the Denver Nuggets. The Warriors struggled badly with their three-point shots last night going 4/33 (12.1 percent). But the Denver Nuggets were ready to play as they shot 44 percent from the field and 46.4 percent from the three-point line. They also played good defense limiting the Warriors to only four three-pointers in the entire game.

Warriors stars struggles with shots

The story of last nights game for the Golden State Warriors was how bad they shot the ball. Klay Thompson, Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, and Draymond Green shot a combined 1 for 19 (5.26 percent) from the three-point line in last nights loss.

The core had a pretty lackluster all around game; Durant registered 10 points, four rebounds, one assist, and one steal while shooting 40 percent from the field and going 0 for five from beyond the arc. Green also had a terrible game with four points, eight rebounds, four assists, one steal, and one block while shooting 22 percent from the field and also going 0 for five from the three-point line.

Young and Bell play their first preseason game with Warriors

The Golden State Warriors acquired three players this offseason in Jordan Bell, Nick Young, and Omri Casspi. In last nights game, Young and Bell suited up while Omri Casspi did not due to personal reasons. Nick Young contributed six points and one steal in last nights game going 2/5 from beyond the arc while Jordan Bell scored four points, grabbed one rebound and registered one assist.

Paul Millsap and Mudiay shines in preseason opener

Millsap had an incredible game in their preseason victory over the Golden State Warriors. Millsap scored 22 points, grabbed 11 rebounds, dished out two assists, and registered one steal while shooting 63.6 percent from the field and 66.7 percent from beyond the arc. Millsap was acquired by the Denver Nuggets this offseason, with the departure of Danilo Gallinari it seems like Millsap will now be the main scoring option for the Denver Nuggets heading into the regular season.

Emmanuel Mudiay will enter his second season in the NBA and right off the bat he showed a pretty solid game in last nights preseason opener. He registered 19 points, two rebounds, and four assists while shooting 60 percent from the field and 75 percent from the three-point line. It seems like the Denver Nuggets are looking pretty solid for next season with Paul Millsap added to the roster and the young guns improving and maturing.
