(AP) Kenneth Faried brought the energy and the Denver Nuggets rediscovered their toughness in time to stave off elimination Tuesday night with a 107-100 win over the Golden State Warriors.


The Nuggets slowed down Golden State's guards, jumpstarted their transition game and got under Andrew Bogut's skin in Game 5, jumping out to a 22-point lead before weathering the Warriors' frenetic fourth quarter rally.


Game 6 is Thursday night in Oakland. Golden State leads the series 3-2.


Andre Iguodala had 25 points and 12 rebounds, Ty Lawson had 19 points and 10 assists and Faried had 13 points and 10 boards.


Stephen Curry finished 1 of 7 from 3 and scored 15. Harrison Barnes led Golden State with 23 points.
