Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Donyell Marshall had 18 points and grabbed a season-high 17 rebounds while Erick Dampier added 17 and 13 as the Golden State Warriors snapped a three-game losing streak with a 93-74 victory over the Denver Nuggets.

The Warriors tied an NBA-season high with 65 rebounds and took the season series with the Nuggets, 3-1, with all four games taking place in the last two weeks. Denver, which earned a 96-84 victory Friday in the opener of this home-and-home series, grabbed 43 boards.

It was Dampier's tenth double-double of the season and Marshall's ninth as Golden State moved within three games of the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

"Regardless of whether or not we make the playoffs, we want to go out there and show we're not quitters," Marshall said. "We still want to fight for our pride and we want to go out there and play hard."

"I thought our big guys stayed down on the floor and protected inside the best we've done in our four games against Denver," Warriors coach P.J. Carlesimo said. "(Marshall) dominated the boards. He put the ball on the floor and defended very well."

Golden State is 19-24 in this abbreviated season after going 19-63 in 1997-98.

Johnny Taylor and Danny Fortson scored 16 points apiece for Denver, which lost for the third time in five games. Antonio McDyess, who averaged 28.9 points in his previous six games, was held to 15.

"It was a poor game preperation tonight," Fortson said. "They have bigger guys than us for one thing. Their whole team is rebounding. There is no way you're going to win, especially if you don't come out to win."

The 74 points for Denver was a season low for a Warriors' opponent. That, and poor shooting, were not lost on Nuggets coach Mike D'Antoni.

"I don't think you're going to win too many times when you shoot 33 percent (26-of-78)," he said. "Mentally, we didn't have as much focus as we did last night. Put those two things together and you get blown out."

Golden State raced to a 12-1 lead just 3:51 into the contest, with rookie Antawn Jamison scoring four of his 14 points during that burst. Denver later countered with 11 straight points to grab a 20-19 lead with less than a minute left. McDyess, who made just 5-of-13 free throws, scored four in that spurt and finished the period with seven as the Nuggets took a 23-21 lead.

The Warriors began to pull away in the second period, as Dampier scored six points in a 13-2 binge that opened a 47-33 advantage. Marshall had 11 points in the first half as the Warriors built a 47-38 lead.

Golden State used a 14-3 run in the third quarter to extend its lead to 63-45. Dampier and Jamison netted six points apiece during that spurt as the Warriors grabbed a 17-point lead at the end of three quarters.
