Daily Madden: The Warriors Take A Commanding Lead

OAKLAND, Calif. (CBS SF/AP) _ Stephen Curry shook off a sore left ankle to score 22 of his 31 points in the third quarter, leading the Golden State Warriors past the Denver Nuggets 115-101 on Sunday night for a commanding 3-1 series lead.

Curry shot 10 of 16 from the floor and added seven assists in a dominant and dazzling display that rivaled his days in the NCAA tournament for tiny Davidson. His five 3-pointers in the third quarter lifted Golden State to a 20-point lead and its third straight victory in this frenetic and flashy series.

"I'll tell you, that's a great story isn't it," John Madden told the KCBS Radio morning crew.

Even making the playoffs was a big deal for the team this year, but to be a probable first round winner at this point - who would have thought?

"And the more you watch them, you know that they're better than the Nuggets. I mean, the way that they're playing now, they're just too good for them," Madden said.
