Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant told a Denver Nuggets fan that they will sweep them if they meet in the playoffs.

The Denver Nuggets tied NBA history last night when they throttled the Golden State Warriors with 24 three-point field goals. It’s not often the Warriors are on the receiving end of a beating like that, but it took history to make Golden State look human. There’s a chance these two teams will meet again in the playoffs.

With Denver currently in the eighth spot, there’s a strong chance they end up meeting in the first round of the playoffs.

After the trash talk the Warriors endured in Oklahoma City, it appears that they’re having a little fun giving it back to the fans. There’s nothing malicious here and it’s all in good spirited fun. Can this be bulletin board material for Denver? Sure, but it’s a steep climb when facing Golden State.

It took history to knock off the Warriors. With the rise of Nikola Jokic and several other young players on the Nuggets, a series between these two teams would be one of the more fun first round series in the NBA.

Yeah, it’s likely not going past four or five games, but there would be plenty of points scored. Durant’s comments will certainly be brought up if they do indeed meet and it should make things all the more interesting.

Golden State will have plenty of motivation of their own. A poor night overall will have them more focused when these teams meet again. It’s one thing to try and beat the Warriors in the regular season, but it’s a different beast in the playoffs.
