Nuggets rally to beat Warriors in double OT

Il Gallo chiude con 21 punti anche se il tiro continua a latitare

NBA

The Denver Nuggets weren't going to let the prospect of two overtimes keep them from posting a clean sweep during a brutal stretch of four games in five nights, scoring the final 11 points to finish off the Golden State Warriors 107-101 Saturday.



Andre Iguodala
 and Danilo Gallinari drained for back-to-back 3-pointers in the final minute, the latter giving the Nuggets (4-3) a 103-101 lead with 35.9 seconds to go.



Gallinari finished with a team-high 21 points while Iguodala nearly had his first triple-double since coming to the Nuggets, totaling 19 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists.



Kenneth Faried 
feasted in the lane against the Warriors, with 18 points and 17 boards. Denver had 23 offensive rebounds and outscored Golden State 66-42 in the paint.



Klay Thompson
 led the Warriors with 23 points, but missed a pair of free throws with 13 seconds remaining in the first overtime and the Warriors holding a 94-92 lead. Gallinari charged through a confused Warriors defense for an uncontested dunk with 2.1 seconds left to force the second OT.



Carl Landry
 had 22 points, 17 in the fourth quarter and beyond, but couldn't keep the Warriors (3-4) from suffering a second loss in as many nights.



Denver, which shot just 38.1 percent from the floor, will take a four-game winning streak to Phoenix on Monday after opening the year 0-3.
