Offensive explosion lifts Warriors over Nuggets

DENVER (AP) - Stephen Curry had 30 points and 13 assists and the Golden State Warriors handed the Denver Nuggets their first loss at home in more than three months, a 131-117 stunner Tuesday night that evened their playoff series at a game each.

Jarrett Jack added 26 points as the sixth-seeded Warriors wrested homecourt advantage from the NBA's best home team as the series shifts to Oakland for Game 3 on Friday night.

It was just the second road win of the playoffs following Chicago's win at Brooklyn on Monday.

The third-seeded Nuggets were an NBA-best 38-3 at home during the regular season but needed Andre Miller's last-second shot to beat Golden State by a basket in the opener and extend their franchise-best winning streak to 24 games.

Ty Lawson and Corey Brewer each scored 19 for Denver.
