(Col.)-Nuggets Ready To Face Warriors In Saturday Playoff Game

By: Chris Fankhauser Posted at: 04/19/2013 07:59 AM

     DENVER (AP) - The Denver Nuggets spent the season proving they didn't need a superstar to be one of the league's top teams.
 
     After winning an NBA franchise-best 57 games and becoming just the 11th team in league history to lose three or fewer home games in a season, the Nuggets are out to disprove the notion that NBA teams can't push the pace in the playoffs.
 
     Coaches tend to shrink their benches in the postseason, when they run more set plays in the halfcourt that slow the flow and keeps players logging all those minutes from getting worn down.
 
     The Nuggets and Golden State Warriors, who meet in a first-round Western Conference series starting Saturday at the Pepsi Center, despise the slow-down game and want to run, run, run.
