2012 NBA Summer League, Nuggets Vs. Warriors: Jordan Hamilton Scores 18, But Colorado Loses 95-74

Wing Jordan Hamilton (18 points, 5 rebounds) put up some impressive numbers in Saturday's opening game of the 2012 NBA Summer League, but the Denver Nuggets (0-1) were unable overcome G Charles Jenkins (24 points), F Clay Thompson (17 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists) and the Golden State Warriors (1-0).

Forward Kenneth Faried (10 points, 8 rebounds, 3 blocks) played over 31 minutes in his first NBA Summer League game and looked sharp defensively with 3 blocks, but the 2011-12 All-Rookie First Team could not hold off the deluge of Nuggets turnovers (29 total) that gave the Warriors offense ample opportunities to score.
