After being dominated so thoroughly in the first two games that they left San Francisco simply trying to keep things together, the Nuggets avoided being swept for the second straight postseason and now return to the Bay Area for a Game 5 with confidence that they can extend the series even more if they play the way they did in Denver. “There is no pressure on us,” said point guard Monte Morris, who hit five 3’s in the third quarter and scored 24 points. “I think Game 3 and 4 has been our best basketball, how physical we want to be, we displayed that.
“I feel his frustration,” Malone said. “I think he’s getting fouled like he thinks he’s getting fouled. He’s not getting the call. But he has to find a way to play through that. He’s way too valuable.” “As a leader of this team, he’s got to show guys in adverse times when things aren’t going your way, you’ve got to find a way to fight through it, be mentally tough,” the coach added. “That’s going to be a challenge for him moving forward.”
