The Nuggets beat the Warriors on Monday night, 132-110. Denver tied a single-game regular season record with 24 3-pointers.
As Kevin Durant and his teammates left the floor, a Denver fan said, "See you in the playoffs."
Durant's response: "Yeah, we'll sweep your a--."
If the season ended today, the Warriors (46-9) would face the Nuggets (25-30) in the 1 vs 8 matchup.
Golden State won in Denver 125-101 on Nov. 10, and beat the Nuggets at Oracle 127-119 on Jan. 2.
The two teams don't play again this regular season.
In the 2013 playoffs, the 6-seeded Warriors upset the 3-seeded Nuggets in six games.
Durant scored 25 points in 27 minutes on Monday night.
On Tuesday morning, the Lakers made sweeping changes to their front office.
Magic Johnson is now the president of basketball operations and both general manager Mitch Kupchak and executive VP of basketball operations Jim Buss were fired.
Los Angeles -- looking to hire a new GM -- originally targeted Warriors GM Bob Myers, according to The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski.
But as Wojnarowski reports: "After Myers signed a recent contract extension, it became clear to Lakers brass that it would be unable to lure Myers."
In September, the Warriors promoted Myers from general manager to president of basketball operations/general manager.
Myers was named the NBA Executive of the Year following the 2014-15 season.
The Warriors recalled guard Brianté Weber from the Santa Cruz Warriors of the NBA Development League, the team announced today.
Weber was assigned to Santa Cruz to allow him to participate in the 2017 NBA D-League All-Star Game on Saturday in New Orleans, where he tallied four points, two assists and two steals in 16 minutes for the West squad.
Weber, who signed his second 10-day contract with the Warriors on Feb. 14, has appeared in five games with Golden State this season, averaging 1.6 points and 1.0 assist in 8.2 minutes.
Prior to joining Golden State, the 6’2”, 165-pound guard appeared in 31 games (all starts) this season with the Sioux Falls Skyforce of the NBA D-League, averaging 16.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, 7.4 assists and 3.26 steals in 36.8 minutes and garnering NBA D-League Player of the Month honors in January.
