Warriors head coach Mark Jackson says Denver Nuggets are playing dirty [video]


The Denver Nuggets beat the Golden State Warriors in game 5 to stave off elimination. It was an extremely physical game and in the post game press conference, Warriors head coach Mark Jackson accused the Nuggets of dirty play, even going as far to say that George Karl sent hit men out on Stephen Curry.


“I’m not going to get into specifics. You can take a look at the game. The screen on Curry by the foul line on a shot at his ankle clearly. That can’t be debated,” Jackson said. “I’ve got inside information that some people don’t like that brand of basketball. And they clearly didn’t co-sign it. So they wanted to let me know that they had no part in what was taking place. Let the best team win, and with the exception of going down with a freak injury, let everybody leave out of here healthy. That’s not good basketball.”

This is the play that Jackson was referring to. I say this is just playoff basketball. Shaq and Charles Barkley agreed as well.
