Game Story

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- The Denver Nuggets did not get to see Juwan Howard return, but they managed to enjoy a trip to a city in which they rarely win. James Posey had his first career triple-double with 19 points, 10 assists and 14 rebounds as the Nuggets gave coach Jeff Bzdelik his first win, a 96-79 thumping of the Portland Trail Blazers. Denver lost 13 of its previous 14 games at Portland but were set to debut Howard, who served a two-game suspension for a fight in a preseason game. While Howard sat out with a stomach virus, Portland responded with a performance that turned the stomachs of many of its fans. "This is really sweet, especially up here where there's great basketball tradition and this is a great basketball team, and it's on the road," Bzdelik said. "So this is one I'll always remember." A basket by Chris Andersen capped a 12-2 run that gave Denver the lead for good at 55-49 with just under seven minutes left in the third quarter. The Nuggets took a 68-63 advantage into the final period. Denver opened the fourth quarter on a 17-4 run, taking an 85-67 lead on a three-point play by Ryan Bowen with just under six minutes left. Posey had six points in the spurt. "It felt real good," Posey said. "I know the coach was waiting and the players were waiting as well to get a win. It felt good for us, but especially for him. I was going to pour a little water on his head like they do in football." Rasheed Wallace led Portland with 21 points and Derek Anderson added 16. But the Blazers scored just 30 points in the second half and were held below 80 for the second straight game. "That was as poor a game as any since I've been here," Portland coach Maurice Cheeks said. "There was just nothing there, nothing there at all. We didn't have any energy. No matter who I put into the game, it was the same story." Denver thoroughly dominated Portland in every category as it shot 59 percent (45-of-76), compared to 40 percent (29-of-72) for the Trail Blazers. The Nuggets also whipped the Blazers on the boards, 41-23, and had a whopping 60-24 advantage in points in the paint. "Going through losses is not fun," Andersen said. "Once we get that win and we see that we've put our offense together and pass the ball and move the ball around, it feels real good." Posey did most of the damage as he made 9-of-15 shots, collected four offensive boards and three steals. He registered the 65th triple-double in Nuggets history and first since Robert Pack on April 13, 2001. Posey completed the triple-double with an assist to Chris Whitney, who drained a 3-pointer for the final margin with 45 seconds left. "I was aware of it with the last timeout we took and I asked somebody to give me one more assist and Chris Whitney got it for me," Posey said. "I thank him and I thank everybody. It was a good team effort." Andersen made 6-of-9 shots and collected 12 points and seven rebounds. Donnell Harvey scored a career-high 15 points on 7-of-9 shooting off the bench and rookie Nene Hilario added 10 points on 5-of-6 shooting. While Denver did its damage inside, Portland relied on an uneven perimeter game. The Blazers made 7-of-21 from beyond the arc and the long shots resulted in plenty of chances to run for Denver, which held a 17-0 edge in fast-break points. "Defensively, it should never be a case where a team wants it badder," Anderson said. "They show much more heart than what we did. We can't afford to allow that to happen with the talent we have in this locker room and the bodies that we have and passion that we have in this locker room." The Blazers also misfired from the foul line, connecting on just 14-of-23 attempts. They are making 59 percent of their free throws this season.
