DENVER, CO - The hot-shooting Golden State Warriors handed the Denver Nuggets their first home loss since Jan. 18.

Jarrett Jack and Harrison Barnes added 26 and 24 points, respectively, for the sixth-seeded Warriors, who set a franchise playoff record by shooting 64.6 percent from the floor. The visitors also went 14-of-25 from beyond the arc.
Klay Thompson tallied 21 points for Golden State, which lost Lee for the remainder of the playoffs in the fourth quarter of Saturday's Game 1 loss due to a complete tear of his right hip flexor.
Ty Lawson had 19 points and 12 assists for the Nuggets, who had won 24 straight at home dating back to the regular season. Corey Brewer donated 19 points and Andre Iguodala and Andre Miller each tallied 18 points.
