07:01 AM ET 05.01 | The Nuggets came out hard in Game 5, and Stephen Curry left the game both with a loss and with bruises. "Man, I'm not going to back down," Curry said calmly and icily after describing Denver's legal and illegal shots at him through the game. ... Though the Warriors were clearly outplayed in this game, which denied them their first shot at clinching this series, their locker room was feeling good about the late comeback and the home game Thursday. And mostly, they were fuming about the hits Curry took from the first minutes of this game. "They tried to send hit men (at Curry)," Warriors coach Mark Jackson said. ... "Whether they're taking cheap shots or not, we'll discuss that at the end of the series," Andrew Bogut said.

The game is just getting chippy. There were no cheap shot there. GS let the physical play get to them.

I hate it when players and coaches make all kinds of crazy excuses when they lose. Look Jackson, it's a game. If they hit you; hit back... let the refs decide what to do with it. Complaining to the media won't change anything - prepare your team; go out there and play ball.

Coach is working the refs. Was that Mark Jackson or Phil Jackson?

Highlights! But those are little things. They let little things get into their heads. They cry over little bump. Have you seen how the Bulls play? What the Nuggets did are nothing compared to the Bulls but the Nets are not complaining. It's part of the game. Let the refs handle it which is what they did. They called those little bump fouls right?

Mark Jackson needs to stop whining.

Curry was just having a bad shooting night that's all

The Nuggets need Melo. Haaaaaaa ha ha ha ha

Yeah, they talked about this on the halftime show of the Clips/Grizz game. Everyone pretty much dismissed Jackson's "hit men" accusation.
