Barton, who scored 19 points in Denver's season-opening victory on Wednesday, had tallied 14 points before leaving Saturday's contest.

Denver Nuggets shooting guard Will Barton suffered a right hip injury in Saturday night's 119-91 win against the Phoenix Suns. "We were told that". So I think you're seeing it all around the league with these high scores.

Denver led by as many as 11 in the fourth quarter, but saw the Warriors chip away late behind 30 points from Steph Curry to eventually tie the game up with just over a minute to play.

"Some of them are on us, it's ridiculous".

While Green said some of the calls against the Warriors this season have been questionable, he also admitted the team is culpable for some decisions on defense that "are just dumb as hell". After being whistled for 29 fouls and sending the Nuggets to the line 46 times, the Warriors have now been called for 81 fouls through the first three games of the season.

"We got to be smarter", Green conceded. "We can't sit there and act like every foul called on us is wrong".

"You can go for the dagger shot, but the lane opened up", said Curry. "And right now we're not doing a good job of that".
