Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- After three losses to the Denver Nuggets, Speedy Claxton and the Golden State Warriors decided to get defensive. Claxton scored a career-high 25 points and played outstanding defense as the Warriors pulled out a 96-87 victory over the Nuggets. The Warriors had allowed an average of 106 points in its previous three contests with the Nuggets. After a pair of close losses, Golden State surrendered 71 points in the second and third quarters of a 103-79 loss at Denver on December 28. Perhaps reminded of that poor stretch, the Warriors never trailed, bolting to a big lead in the first quarter. Although the Nuggets managed to slice the deficit to single digits by halftime, Claxton and his teammates consistently came up with key stops as the Warriors used a 10-0 run to take a 77-64 lead midway through the fourth quarter. "That's a game we were up big and we kind of let them come back in the second quarter," Claxton said. "We did not want to let that happen again tonight. That's kind of been what we've been struggling with. Today we were able to execute on defense." "I don't know if we've gotten the credit we deserve," added Warriors forward Clifford Robinson, whose team came in allowing 95 points per game. "We've been inconsistent and when you're inconsistent, it's going to be tough for people to notice what you're capable of doing if you're not bringing it on a consistent basis." Claxton reached double figures for the 13th consecutive game. He made all 13 of his free throws and played outstanding defense on Andre Miller, who had 12 points and two assists. "Speedy has such great activity to loose balls," Warriors coach Eric Musselman said. "I don't know of anybody else in the NBA who get to loose balls quicker than he does. He does a lot of things that you do not see in the boxscore." Miller had averaged 18.3 points and 7.1 assists in his previous 15 games. But he couldn't get anything going as the Nuggets couldn't recover from their slow start. "It was certainly not the way you want to get off on the road, down 19-4 or whatever it was," Denver guard Jon Barry said. "As bad as we played we were down five at the half. I mean we're still right there. We just never seemed to get over the hump and we were very lackluster in everything we did." Coming off a career-high 39-point night against Portland on Monday, rookie Carmelo Anthony led the Nuggets with 24 points. But Denver shot just 39 percent (31-of-80) from the field and had a three-game winning streak stopped. The Warriors won their fifth straight home game and improved to 8-2 in their last 10 home contests, a stretch that began with back-to-back victories over the Los Angeles Lakers and Sacramento Kings. All five starters reached double figures as Robinson and Jason Richardson added 15 apiece. "This was a really nice win for us," Musselman said. "It might have been the biggest win we have had in the last year and half. We have had a lot of injuries and a lot guys step up. That was the best defense that I have seen us play."
