GAME RECAP

Donyell Marshall returned from a two-game absence to score 20 points as the Golden State Warriors held the Denver Nuggets to just seven points in the fourth quarter, rallying for an 87-75 victory.

Joe Smith had 22 points and 10 rebounds and hit a 15-foot jumper to cap a 15-0 run midway through the fourth quarter, giving the Warriors a 77-70 advantage.

Marshall scored seven points in the final period and drained a crucial jumper with the shot clock winding down to build an 83-75 lead with 1:06 remaining. Marshall, who grabbed seven boards, missed the last two games with a strained left hamstring and a sprained lower back.

"I was about 65 to 70 percent. Although at times tonight, I did feel real weak," Marshall said. "For some reason I think that we have more aggressive scorers and rebounders when I'm out there."

Rookie Danny Fortson tied a season high with 22 points for Denver, which suffered its seventh straight loss and remained the league's only winless team on the road. The Nuggets (2-23) own the worst record in the NBA and are a dismal 0-14 on the road.

Priest Lauderdale, who scored 10 points, opened the fourth quarter with a hook shot to give the Nuggets a 70-62 lead before Golden State reeled off 15 straight points.

Smith sank two free throws to start the run before Muggsy Bogues drained a 15-footer. Bogues had all six of his points and four of his six assists in the final period.

"We had some guys step up and make some plays tonight," Bogues said. "We stayed focused, even when they made their run."

Marshall's three-pointer with 7:24 to go put Golden State ahead to stay, 71-70. Bogues hit a jumper and fed Marshall for a fast-break dunk before Smith hit his 18-footer to cap the run with 4:23 remaining.

Dean Garrett, who grabbed 13 rebounds, hit a short turnaround to cut the deficit to 81-75 before Marshall hit the back-breaking 16-foot jumper. Tony Delk and Bogues each sank two free throws in the final minute to seal the win.

The Nuggets, who led for most of the third quarter, made just one of its first 10 shots in the fourth and finished the period 2-of-15. The seven points was their lowest scoring fourth quarter ever and the 74 for the game was a season low.

The seven points allowed in the fourth and 27 given up in the second half were both franchise records for Golden State, which won its fifth straight home game.

"I thought we played exceptional defense. For 75 percent of the time, it was very good," Warriors coach P.J. Carlesimo said.

Bimbo Coles scored 13 points for the Warriors and his jumper tied the game at 58 with 3:50 left in the third. Lauderdale, LaPhonso Ellis and Anthony Goldwire all had buckets to give Denver a six-point lead, which Denver took into the final session.

Ellis was the only Denver starter in double figures, finishing with 15 points. The Nuggets' starting five was a combined 10-for-42 from the field and the team shot 33 percent (24-of-73) overall.

Golden State shot 51 percent (35-of-69) from the field and set a season low for points allowed.
