Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Larry Hughes scored a career-high 44 points as the Golden State Warriors snapped an 11-game losing streak with a 117-103 victory over the Denver Nuggets.

Hughes, who shot 16-of-29 from the floor and added seven assists, surpassed his previous high of 41 points in a loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on March 9.

The win was Golden State's first since a 95-92 double-overtime victory at Chicago on March 17.

The Warriors led by as many as 27 points early in the second quarter but nearly blew the lead before recovering for their 10th straight home victory over Denver.

Adonal Foyle collected a career-high 18 points and grabbed 13 rebounds and Mark Davis also reached a career-high 17 points for Golden State, which avenged an embarrassing 122-88 loss at Denver on March 3.

"We don't want to get embarrassed on any given night, that's what keeps us going," Hughes said. "I'm not going to score (this much) every night so I have to do other things."

"I'm not just a one-dimensional player, I know I can score," Foyle said. "If it takes a block or a rebound... I'll do whatever it takes but it always feels nice to score."

Antonio McDyess had 25 points and 12 rebounds for the Nuggets, who last won here on April 25, 1995.

The Warriors prevailed despite of the absence of forward Donyell Marshall, who is sidelined with tendinitis in his left knee.

Denver coach Dan Issel, who had a front-row seat for one of his teams' worst performances of the season, was ejected by referee Steve Javie after drawing his second technical at the 2:02 mark of the fourth quarter.

Issel, who received his first technical a minute earlier, has been ejected six times this season and three of those have been courtesy of Javie.

Issel had no comment on incident with Javie but forward George McCloud offered his opinion.

"Every game he's reffed it's been something," McCloud said. "I don't think its fair but there's nothing we can do about it. It should be looked at amongst the people in charge of officiating. I don't really like to say anything about the officiating because players decide the outcome but when players and coaches get tossed out of consecutive games that he officiates, you got to think, why?"

The Warriors shot 73 percent (16-of-22) in the first quarter and used a 20-3 run to open a 41-18 cushion. Hughes had 14 points and four assists in the session as Golden State set a season-high for points in a period.

Hughes and Vonteego Cummings opened the second quarter with buckets that stretched the advantage to 45-18 with 11:14 remaining. Denver outscored the Warriors 24-13 over the next nine minutes. However, the Nuggets trailed, 66-47, at the half.

Denver opened the second half much like the first, going scoreless over the first 4:38, allowing Golden State to push the lead to 72-47. The Warriors still had a comfortable 82-59 advantage with 4:25 left but began to falter as Denver used an 18-6 run to draw within 88-77 entering the final period.

"Tonight, it was the first half that hurt us," Issel said. "We really weren't aggressive the whole first half. It was about midway through the third period before we started playing hard."

The Nuggets cut the deficit to eight points on three occassions during the fourth quarter, but had dug too deep a hole as their comeback fell short.

Jason Caffey had 16 points and 11 rebounds and Mookie Blaylock added 13 and 11 assists for Golden State, which shot 51 percent (43-of-85) from the floor and made only 30-of-48 free throws.

Chris Herren had 17 points, one shy of his season high, and Chris Gatling added 14 for the Nuggets, who shot 45 percent (37-of-82) and allowed 28 points off 23 turnovers.

"When you get off to a slow start, especially on the road, its tough," Mc Cloud said. "We played well the last five minutes of the third quarter and in the fourth quarter but we have to be disappointed in ourselves that we didn't come out and play 48 minutes. We played about 18 minutes of the second half and made a game of it."
