2014 NBA scores: Kenneth Faried lifts Nuggets past Warriors late

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

Golden State did everything they could to fend off the charging Nuggets on Thursday, but a Kenneth Faried game-winner couldn't be stopped as the Warriors lost at home.

The Warriors just couldn't stop from shooting themselves in the foot on Thursday. They let Denver claw back into the game in the third quarter, and despite a Steph Curry jumper with five seconds left, allowed Kenneth Faried to isolate as time wore down, scoring the winning bucket, 100-99. Also, Andre Iguodala put Quincy Miller on the floor with what just might be the crossover of the season in the NBA.

Timofey Mozgov was the star of the show, dropping 23 points and grabbing a ridiculous 29 rebounds, along with three assists, three blocks and a steal. Randy Foye finished with 20 points on 7-of-23 shooting, adding seven rebounds, a steal and a block.

Steph Curry scored 24 for the Warriors including a floater with 5.8 seconds remaining to give Golden State the lead, but went just 2-of-7 on three-pointers. He added six assists. Denver out-rebounded the Warriors 63-38.

San Antonio Spurs 109, Dallas Mavericks 100

Tony Parker sat out with a back injury but that didn't stop San Antonio from dominating the Dallas Mavericks. Patty Mills impressed with 26 points in a starting role for the Spurs, dishing out six assists as San Antonio improved to a league-best 61-18. There was a scary moment for the Spurs in the first quarter as Tim Duncan hyperextended his left knee, but he returned to the game and appeared able to play without restriction.

Dallas threatened with nine minutes left in the fourth quarter but it just wasn't enough to overcome the Spurs' superior ball movement. Dirk Nowitzki finished with 19 points on 8-of-14 shooting, getting to the line just five times. Tim Duncan scored 20 points on 7-of-12 shooting for San Antonio, grabbing 15 rebounds while adding two assists, one steal and a block.
