How to watch Warriors vs. Nuggets in first round originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

The 2022 NBA Playoffs have officially arrived, and the No. 3 Golden State Warriors are set to take on the No. 6 Denver Nuggets.

While the Warriors (53-29) are the higher seed, the Nuggets (48-34) have won three out of four matchups between the two powerhouses this season, however, Golden State standout Draymond Green did not play in any of those games. The Warriors won the last contest on March 10. 

The Warriors clinching the No. 3 seed came down to the wire. Prior to their final game of the regular season, Golden State was only ahead of Dallas (52-30) by one game, meaning if the Warriors lost their last matchup against the Pelicans and the Mavericks beat the Spurs, the Mavericks would’ve grabbed the No. 3 seed. The Mavericks held the head-to-head tiebreaker over the Warriors, hence why they would’ve been seeded ahead in the Western Conference playoffs.

Ultimately, Golden State went on to defeat New Orleans and Dallas beat San Antonio, leaving the two teams seeded No. 3 and No. 4, respectively.
