Poor execution down the stretch cost the Warriors in Wednesday’s 123-116 home loss to the Nuggets. The Warriors battled back from a 10-point second-half deficit but were out-scored 8-0 over after a pair of David Lee free throws gave the Dubs a one-point lead with 1:13 left in the fourth quarter. Lee led the Warriors with 28 points and 11 rebounds for his 13th 20-and-10 game of the season, and Stephen Curry (24 points) and Klay Thompson (21) each overcame rough shooting nights from the perimeter to finish with 20-plus points. The loss spoiled an otherwise solid bench performance from Harrison Barnes and Draymond Green, who combined for 27 points, including 4-for-5 on 3-pointers. On the other side of the ball, Denver had it going offensively all night, shooting 54.2 percent from the floor and 50 percent (12-for-24) on 3-pointers. Four Nuggets players scored at least 20 points, led by Nate Robinson, who scored 14 of his 24 in the fourth quarter. The Warriors will now head back on the road for a two-day, two-game trip that tips off on Friday in Oklahoma City.
