GAME RECAP

Donyell Marshall scored 18 points and Jim Jackson had 15 and seven assists in his Golden State debut as the Warriors defeated the Denver Nuggets, 95-88, in a matchup of two of the worst teams in the league.

Erick Dampier added 16 points and 12 rebounds for Golden State, which has won three of four games for the second time this season. The Warriors (11-42) own the fourth worst record in the NBA.

"That is a pretty good team now," said Nuggets head coach Bill Hanzlik. "You have Muggsy (Bogues), a good point guard, Jim Jackson, a good two and Dampier and (Clarence) Weatherspoon; they are big. Marshall has been playing well also."

Jackson, along with Weatherspoon, was acquired Wednesday from the Philadelphia 76ers for Golden State's former top overall pick, Joe Smith, and guard Brian Shaw. Weatherspoon contributed 11 points and seven rebounds.

"I thought for a first game they (Jackson and Weatherspoon) performed very well," Golden State head coach P.J. Carlsesimo said. "I thought offensively J.J. didn't shoot it the way he can shoot it, but he rebounded and defended real well. Spoon was real solid. I though those guys, for a first game, were very good."

"The only thing I have to get used to is the fast pace of running up and down the floor with Muggsy," Jackson said. "It's similar when I was in Dallas with (Jason) Kidd. It's tough the first game because you want to come out and do well."

Weatherspoon was also pleased with his performance in his first game as a Warrior but felt he needed to get used to his new team's uptempo style of play.

"I'm just glad we got a win," he said. "I got kind of winded a little bit to tell you the truth. Overall, I felt pretty good and I felt comfortable."

Tony Battie and Johnny Newman each had 18 points and LaPhonso Ellis chipped in with 17 and 12 rebounds for the Nuggets, who dropped their sixth straight game and fell to 1-26 on the road. Denver, at 5-48, is the worst team in the league.

"My teammates found me tonight at the right time and I was feeling it," said Battie. "They played a strong ballgame. Every time we made a run, they answered."

Denver held its last lead at 57-56 with 7:05 of the third qurter. The Warriors scored the next seven straight points, including Dampier's two free throws that gave them a 63-57 advantage with 5:44 left in the quarter.

However, the Nuggets whittled the deficit down to 67-66 with 1:12 left in the third on a dunk by Ellis. But Tony Delk had a three-point play and Bimbo Coles threw down a dunk with 1.9 seconds remaining, allowing Golden State to go into the fourth with a 72-66 lead.

The Warriors built a 10-point lead with 4:51 left in the fourth when Marshall hit a six-foot hook shot and the ensuing free throw. After his 14-foot jumper gave Golden State an 87-77 cushion with 3:30 remaining, Newman scored nine of the next 11 points to bring Denver within 89-83 with 41.3 seconds left.

Golden State responded by converting eight of 10 free throws and Jackson had a tip-in to seal the Warriors' sixth consecutive win over the Nuggets.

"At the end of the game, we had the ball and turned it over and missed a couple of shots and we had to start fouling," Battie said. "They hit some big shots down the stretch and we missed a couple."

Delk scored 14 points while Bogues had 12 points and six assists for the Warriors, who were without newly acquired Jason Caffey. The 6-8 forward, who was traded to Golden State from the Chicago Bulls in exchange for forward David Vaughn, a 1998 second-round draft pick and a 2000 second-round draft pick, is not with the team.

Anthony Goldwire had 11 points and eight assists for Denver and Bryant Stith returned from the injured list to score two points in 10 minutes. Stith has played just 10 games this season before being sidelinded with with chronic tendinitis in his left foot and ankle.
