OAKLAND -- For the better part of the last month, the Warriors have been trying to fend off the Nuggets for the top spot in the Western Conference.
Now, with a matchup against Nuggets on Tuesday, the champs have a chance to all but seal that goal.
Entering Tuesday, the Warriors are one game up on Denver and hold a tiebreaker by winning the season series, meaning a win Tuesday will effectively give Golden State home court advantage throughout the postseason.

The Warriors have won seven of their last ten games following a rough post-All-Star start.
Curry, who hit six 3-pointers in Sunday's win over the Hornets, has hit at least five 3-pointers in eight straight games.
Meanwhile, Durant, who made all five of his shots Sunday, enters Tuesday's game shooting 65 percent from the field over his last four games, adding seven rebounds and eight assists.
Despite being second in the Western Conference, Denver is just 20-18 on the road this season and have lost three over their last five games entering Tuesday.
Still, Jokic has been fantastic this season, averaging 20.3 points, 10.9 rebounds and 7.4 assists, garnering some early season MVP chatter.
Murray has also enjoyed a career season, averaging 18.2 points, 4.1 rebounds and 4.8 assists.
