DENVER -- Stephen Curry scored 33 points Thursday and the Golden State Warriors beat the Denver Nuggets 125-101 on a night Kevin Durant's string of 72 straight regular-season games with at least 20 points ended.
Durant finished with 18 points. He remained tied with Michael Jordan for the fourth-longest streak of 20 or more points in league history.
Curry tweaked his ankle in a win over Dallas on Wednesday, but it didn't appear to hamper him. He finished 7 of 13 from 3-point range, including one that he turned into a four-point play.
Rookie Jamal Murray had 14 points for the Nuggets, who are 0-2 at Pepsi Center this season after stressing the importance of regaining a home-court advantage. Fellow rookie Malik Beasley scored his first NBA points on a 3-pointer in the third quarter. He finished with 12 points.
