Game Story

DENVER (Ticker) -- Raef LaFrentz collected 18 points and 12 rebounds and Nick Van Exel handed out 16 assists as the Denver Nuggets used a third-quarter blitz for a 122-88 rout of the Golden State Warriors.

The Nuggets came out with a vengeance, apparently eager to erase the memory of a lethargic 94-81 home loss to New Jersey on Wednesday that coach Dan Issel called the most disappointing of the season.

"We definitely bounced back tonight," Issel said. "We played a complete game. We played hard. If we play with that can of energy every night, we can live with what happens."

In that game, Van Exel scored only two points on 1-of-9 shooting and was thoroughly outplayed by counterpart Stephon Marbury. LaFrentz had only three points in 21 lifeless minutes and had only 12 points and 19 rebounds in his previous four games.

"I don't believe in hitting the wall," LaFrentz said. "You get tired and we were a little against New Jersey. But we let ourselves down and we let our coaches down. It was really, really important for us to bounce back tonight."

"Raef played terrific," Issel said. "His shot was on, he ran the floor and was active on defense. It was probably his best game in a month."

Jason Caffey opened the second half with a layup that cut Golden State's deficit to 54-48. But the Nuggets responded with a 20-3 outburst, capped by a 16-footer by LaFrentz, to take a commanding 74-51 lead with 7:01 left. LaFrentz also nailed a 3-pointer during the run and Antonio McDyess added seven points.

Keon Clark, who missed Wednesday's game for personal reasons, responded with a career-high 29 points and 16 rebounds. Clark scored 13 points in the fourth quarter, when both teams emptied their benches. LaFrentz enjoyed the entire final period on the bench and Van Exel played only one minute.

"I would consider this my best game as a pro," Clark said. "I had fun out there. It makes it easier to run at this 5,000-foot altitude if you're having fun."

The Nuggets now have 26 wins, one more than their total from the previous two seasons.

Rookie Vonteego Cummings scored 19 points for Golden State, which has lost eight of nine road contests.

Denver played with energy and purpose from start to finish. The Nuggets shot 53 percent (52-of-96) from the floor, dished 40 assists and dominated the boards with a 63-42 rebounding advantage.

Denver also blocked 15 shots, its second highest total of the season. Clark tied his career high with six.

The Nuggets shot 58 percent (14-of-24) in the first quarter to take a 34-24 lead. Donyell Marshall had 10 points and 14 rebounds in the first half to help the Warriors close to 52-45 at halftime. But Marshall played only six minutes in the second half and did not register another point or rebound.

"I didn't think I played very well," Marshall said. "Coach went with guys he thought needed some minutes."

Earlier in the day, Denver placed veteran shooting guard Bryant Stith on the injured list with a bruised right quadriceps he suffered Wednesday. The Nuggets were also without rookie forward James Posey, who injured his right leg in the same game. Posey is expected to play Sunday against Cleveland.

Chris Gatling scored 18 points and grabbed nine rebounds, George McCloud had a career-high 10 assists along with nine points and McDyess finished with 13 points for the Nuggets, who enjoyed their largest victory margin of the season.

Tony Farmer scored 17 points and Caffey had 15 for Golden State, which shot 36 percent (35-of-97), including 3-of-17 from behind the arc, and hit only 15-of-25 free throws.

"They smoked us in the second half," Warriors coach Garry St. Jean said. "I expected Denver to have a heck of an effort because of their game with New Jersey. They took us apart in every way they could. Obviously, there weren't very many bright spots for us."
