Photos from Highlights of Golden State Warriors vs. Denver Nuggets in NBA first-round playoffs Game 3

Stephen Curry came off the bench for the third consecutive game, the team announced Thursday just before tip-off for Game 3 of their first-round series against the Denver Nuggets.

If Golden State has its way, there will be more dominance from its three-guard lineup featuring Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Jordan Poole.

A win Thursday night would just about sew up the series: No NBA team has ever lost a 3-0 series lead, and these Warriors have looked dominant over the first two games.

In his eighth career playoff run, this is the first time Curry has started off the bench in consecutive postseason games.
