​The Warriors gotta chill man...


Golden State set another unbelievable NBA record Tuesday night when they scored 51 first-quarter points in a 142-111 win over the Denver Nuggets.

On top of the league and franchise records for points in the quarter, the Warriors also knocked down 10 first-quarter threes -- another franchise record, for any quarter.


The Warriors shot 76 percent (19-25) from the field and 71 percent from deep (10-14) to jump out to a 51-38 lead and Golden State never looked back. ​Kevin Durant led the way with 17 points on a perfect 7-for-7 shooting, while Klay Thompson added 13, and Steph Curry scored 12.

Durant, Curry, and Thompson combined for 89 points in the win.


With the win Tuesday, the Warriors sent a message to the rest of the league; this season is going to end with ​another Larry O'Brien in the bay.


Golden State brushed off all the statement win talk, with two-time Finals MVP Durant saying "I think they know who we are."

The Warriors will only get stronger with the return of All-Star big man ​Demarcus Cousins, who is expected to make his regular-season debut Friday against the Los Angeles Clippers after suffering a season-ending Achilles injury with the Pelicans last season.


Golden State will take on Boogie's former team Wednesday night at 10:30 p.m. ET on ESPN.
