Curry returns as Golden State Warriors beat Nuggets in game one

Stephen Curry returned from injury to help the Golden State Warriors to an easy 123-107 victory over the Denver Nuggets in their opening game of the NBA play-offs.

Curry had missed the past 12 games with a sprained ankle ligament but added 16 points in 22 minutes off the bench.


Jordan Poole, who started ahead of Curry, led the Warriors with 30 points as he impressed on his play-off debut.

"He's demonstrated he's ready for pretty much any moment," said Curry.
