Jordan Crawford netted a career-best 41 points and the Golden State Warriors will head into the postseason with momentum following a 116-112 win over the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday.

Crawford shot 16-of-28 and finished with the most points by a Warriors reserve in 40 years. Harrison Barnes also went for a career-high, pouring in 30 points to help Golden State split the season series with Denver at two games apiece.

With starters Stephen Curry, Andre Iguodala and David Lee resting and Andrew Bogut (fractured rib) out with an injury, seldom-used Hilton Armstrong recorded a 10-point, 11-rebound double-double and Steve Blake flirted with a triple-double, recording eight points, seven boards and 10 assists.

Golden State (51-31) earned the No. 6 seed in the West and will take on the Los Angeles Clippers in the first round.

Randy Foye led Denver (36-46) with 31 points and eight assists, and Anthony Randolph scored 19 points off the bench.
