GAME RECAP

Erick Dampier scored 19 points and grabbed 12 rebounds as the Golden State Warriors raced to a 24-point halftime lead and cruised to an 81-69 victory over the Denver Nuggets, who tied a club record for fewest points in their ninth straight loss.

Dampier scored 14 points in the first half as the Warriors opened a 51-27 lead en route to their second victory over the Nuggets in the last four days. Golden State (7-19) is 6-6 since it terminated the contract of All-Star guard Latrell Sprewell.

LaPhonso Ellis led Denver with 19 points. The Nuggets, owners of the worst record in the league at 2-24, are in the midst of their second-longest losing streak of the season. They lost 12 straight games to open the campaign.

Denver's points matched the lowest total in club history. It also was held to 69 points on January 16th, 1996 at Portand.

"I just felt we didn't come out early with the energy that we did the last time we played them," Ellis said. "That was the big difference and caused the discrepancy. We just couldn't dent the 20-point lead."

The Warriors took control of the game from the outset, never trailing and going on a 16-5 spurt to open the game. Dampier scored six points in the burst.

Donyell Marshall's second three-pointer of the opening quarter extended Golden State's lead to 24-11 left with 3:09 to play. The Warriors led 26-14 after one quarter, shooting 56 percent (10-for-18) while limiting the Nuggets to only 26 percent (5-of-19) from the field.

The Warriors held a 32-19 lead with 6:25 left in the second quarter and a 10-2 run capped by Dampier's layup extended the advaantage to 42-21 with 3:47 left. Dampier also was a key factor in that spurt with six points.

Golden State's biggest lead of the half was its halftime margin. The Warriors shot 53 percent (16-of-30) while holding Denver to only 25 perecent (9-of-36).

"The first half we played really well," Golden State coach P.J. Carlesimo said. "Offensively and defensively that may be the best we've sustained for a while. We can't play a heck of a lot better than we did in the first half."

Rookie Bobby Jackson's layup with 7:10 remaining in the third quarter pulled the Nuggets within 57-41, but they could get no closer and trailed 66-47 lead heading into the final quarter. Denver got no closer than the final score.

Joe Smith added 14 points for the Warriors, who shot 45 percent (29-of-64). Rookie Tony Battie contributed 11 points for Denver, which shot only 32 percent (24-of-75).

"We didn't want to think about last Tuesday's game, but we did want to start this game the way we ended the last game and to get an early lead," Smith said. "We wanted to come out and be aggressive. As long as we win, I don't care how much fun we have."
