Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Gilbert Arenas scored 25 points and fellow rookie Jason Richardson added 22 as the Golden State Warriors squandered a huge lead but posted a 108-104 victory over the Denver Nuggets.

Arenas gave the Warriors with a 77-55 lead on a basket with 7:16 left in the third quarter. But the Nuggets roared back behind a zone defense and tied it, 92-92, on George McCloud's 3-pointer with 5:06 remaining.

"I don't think we were ready for that type of pressure in the zone," said Arenas, who had six rebounds and six assists. "We thought it was a man (type defense) at first but it turned into a zone. We didn't know what was going on at first."

Calbert Cheaney's layup gave the Nuggets a 98-94 advantage with 3:04 to go, but Arenas hit two free throws and Antawn Jamison put the Warriors ahead, 99-98, with a three-point play with 2:30 left.

Juwan Howard gave Denver a 101-100 lead with a pair of free throws with 88 seconds left before Golden State went ahead for good, 103-102, on a 13-foot jumper by Arenas with 61 seconds remaining.

"Any win for us is great right now," said Arenas, averaging 15.8 points over his last 11 contests. "I was thinking of the fans. If we'd lost this game, they would have booed us real bad. We were up 22 and lost it. We'd been doing it all year, just blowing it, and I mean deep down inside, no one wanted to blow this game up by 22."

The Warriors shot 54 percent (36-of-70) from the field through the first three quarters but only 28 percent (5-of-18) in the fourth.

"I think the change of pace really slowed us down and kind of got them back into the game," Jamison said. "In the past, we probably would've lost the game so you have to be frustrated having a big lead and losing it so quickly, but then again, we didn't give up. We stayed with it and we pulled it out at the end."

"We went to a zone in the second half and got out on guys and tried to make the other players who aren't used to taking shots take some," said McCloud, who finished with 12 points before fouling out with 10 seconds left. "When you are trying to come back from 20 points you use a lot of energy and we kind of ran out of gas at the end. The effort was great but we still aren't happy about the situation with the loss. I thought we gave a good effort in the second half."

Reserve Bob Sura contributed 19 points and Jamison had 17 and eight rebounds as Golden State won consecutive games for the first time since December 22-26.

The Warriors reached the 20-win mark for the first time since going 21-29 in the lockout-shortened 1998-1999 season.

"We almost let this one get away, but we didn't," Golden State coach Brian Winters said. "They played some zone and they made it hard on us. You have to make some perimeter shots and be able to move the ball to get quality looks (at the basket). In the third period, we didn't do a great job of that we also got into the penalty early. That combination weill let a team back into the game. We didn't do a good job of handling their zone. But we managed to hang in the game and make some plays that put us over the top to win."

Howard finished with 27 points and Voshon Lenard added 15 for Denver, which failed to extend its winning streak to three games.

"I think everyone in this locker room is proud of each other's effort, because we were down by 20 points in the first half and kept fighting and never gave up," said Howard, who is averaging 18.8 points in 24 games with the Nuggets. "That shows a lot of heart and character about this team because we are trying to win no matter the circumstances. We aren't going to the playoffs and that is positive. All you can do is hold your head up when you walk out of this locker room."

Danny Fortson returned from a two-game suspension for committing a flagrant foul at Detroit on March 29, grabbing 12 rebounds and scoring seven points.

With Golden State sticking with its rookies down the stretch, guard Larry Hughes was a coach's decision for the second straight game.

Cheaney, Zendon Hamilton and rookie Kenny Satterfield scored 10 points apiece for the Nuggets, who shot 39 percent (39-of-99) and yielded 24 points on 17 turnovers. They owned a slim edge in rebounding, 55-54.
