In Game 5, the Nuggets held off a Warriors rally to stay alive. Steph Curry got into it with a Denver fan. Mark Jackson accused the Nuggets of intentionally trying to hurt Curry. Players from both teams accused each other of playing dirty. This series is turning ugly, and fun.
After Denver's 107-100 win to send the series back to Oakland, Curry heard something he didn't like while leaving the court. He turned back to confront a young fan who had been yelling at him, walked toward and pointed at the fan before being led away by his teammates. Afterward, Curry didn't want to get into what had been discussed.
Warriors coach Mark Jackson was less circumspect. In his press conference, after a game that saw Curry and Kosta Koufos receive technicals, while Andrew Bogut and Draymond Green were whistled for flagrant fouls, Jackson accused the Nuggets of specifically targeting Curry's left ankle, sprained during his great Game 2 performance.
