The Warriors scored 51 points in the first quarter, the most points any NBA team has scored in an opening quarter. Their 10 3-pointers also marked a franchise record for the most treys in a quarter.
Prior to Tuesday, five teams had scored 50 points in an NBA regular-season first quarter dating back to 1982. Three of them featured the Nuggets as their opponent - though none occurred in the Mile-High City.
With the win, the Warriors passed the Nuggets to reclaim first place in the Western Conference by half a game.
