The Golden State Warriors have lost a basketball game, and it only took three games into the 2018-19 regular season.
Nikola Jokic did his thing — 23 points, 11 rebounds, 6 assists — and Gary Harris added 28 points to lead the Denver Nuggets to a 100-98 victory over the defending champs.
But it was a play by Juan Hernangomez that served as the main highlight and sealed the win for Denver.
With the Nuggets leading 100-98, Steph Curry went the length of the court and dumped off a pass to Damian Jones, who had what appeared to be an easy layup to tie the game. But Hernangomez came out of nowhere and rejected Jones to give the Nuggets the win.

The win keeps the Nuggets undefeated at 3-0, and serves as a reminder that they’re one of the top up and coming teams in the Western Conference.
