The Golden State Warriors and Denver Nuggets meet in the first round of the 2022 NBA playoffs in a rematch of a classic series from 2012-13. In that matchup, the lower seeded Warriors defeated the Nuggets to start what would eventually become a modern NBA dynasty. Can the Nuggets pull off a similar shocker here behind MVP contender Nikola Jokic? The center has dominated opponents in all facets this year but might not have enough help around him to make a postseason run. Here’s how the schedule sets up for this first-round matchup, with Golden State having homecourt advantage as the higher seed.
