NBA players react to wild Game 6 between Warriors and Nuggets

Stephen CurryThe Golden State Warriors are moving onto the second round of the playoffs.

Most expected the inexperienced team to make a swift exit in the first round, but Mark Jackson and his squad found a way to outplay the Denver Nuggets for much of the series, thanks in large part to the star power of Stephen Curry.

Denver played stifling defense and managed to hold Curry and Klay Thompson to a combined two-of-13 shooting from the field in the first half. It should have spelled trouble for the home team, but Denver could never fully get into a rhythm either, thanks to Andrew Bogut’s unbelievable defensive presence.

In the second half, Curry came out more aggressive and went to the line after getting fouled on a drive to the basket. From there, he caught fire and nearly matched his ridiculous third-quarter performance from Game 4, when he scored 22 points to put the Nuggets away early. His onslaught begins at the two-minute mark:

Here are some of the reactions from around the league:
