The Denver Nuggets were down 3-1 the other night, and tactfully employed their version of the Jordan rules on Warriors point guard Stephen Curry during game 5.
Denver roughed Curry up at every turn of the game. If he drove the lane, came off a screen, anything Curry did resulted in him being bumped, pushed and manhandled by the Nuggets.
The San Jose Mercury is reporting that with the rough play came taunts from Nuggets players that Curry was “soft.”
And where there are on-court taunts and messages sent, including, according to Warriors sources, Nuggets players repeatedly telling Curry that he was a soft player.
I don’t believe Stephen Curry is soft, and I expect him to go off tonight from every part of the building.
