The Golden State Warriors resisted a comeback attempt by the Denver Nuggets, winning 124-114. But even though he won by double digits, Steve Kerr will have a definite teaching moment after the game.

With Gary Harris not exactly challenging Green in the basket, the Warriors forward could have had an easy ending. But instead of taking the dunk or the tray, he kicked Curry in the three-point line, which resulted in a lost triple.
