DENVER, Colo. (CBS Sports) — Denver Nuggets coach George Karl lashed back at Warriors coach Mark Jackson on Wednesday after Jackson said the Nuggets had sent “hit men” at Golden State guard Stephen Curry during Tuesday night’s Game 5 in a pre-meditated attack with intent to injure the thin shooter.

“I know my integrity – I guarantee you, I never, ever wanted to hurt anybody in basketball, but I do want my team to compete and play hard,” Karl said.

Karl also said if you did a scoring of the series based on dirty play, the Warriors would be winning.
