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.
The Nuggets led at halftime, up by five with a 48-43 score, but the Warriors scored 25 and 27 points in the third and fourth quarter to roll out a 95-74 win.
