Game Story

DENVER (Ticker) -- The offensive woes of the Denver Nuggets were exposed by journeyman Earl Boykins. Boykins scored 16 of his 20 points during a furious second-half comeback as the Golden State Warriors rallied from a 21-point deficit for a 92-82 victory over the Nuggets. The 5-5 Boykins was signed Wednesday, joining his fifth team as Golden State looked to add to its backcourt depth. The smallest player in the NBA came up big, falling two points shy of his career high also set against Denver with Cleveland on February 17, 2000. "I think I gave us a spark," Boykins said. "We were just flat, both offensively and defensively. I just wanted to come in and give the team a little energy." "When we picked him up, we felt out of every 10 games there could be two games where he could just totally change the complexion of the game," Warriors coach Eric Musselman said. "We looked at our steals and we felt with his pressure, it was something that we needed. We told the ballclub before the game that Earl was going to play as a backup point guard. He just totally ignited us." The Warriors trailed 65-44 midway through the third period before Boykins used his quickness to change the tempo and get his team back in the game. Golden State closed the quarter with a 22-2 run, making it a one-point game. "The first 2 1/2 quarters, we didn't play with much energy," Boykins said. "You can't come out and not play without energy against the Nuggets. That's their big thing. They go out there and work hard every day. The first 2 1/2 quarters, we didn't compete at all. The last quarter and a half, we did, and that was the difference in the game." "Our second-half defense was absolutely phenomenal from about the time he checked into the game to the last 18 minutes of the game," Musselman said. The Nuggets continued to sputter in the final period, scoring just four points in the first six minutes. A three-point play by Boykins gave the Warriors an 83-73 lead with 5:54 to play, and the Nuggets got no closer than eight points thereafter. Gilbert Arenas scored 27 points for Golden State, which snapped a two-game skid. Its two road wins have come against Memphis and Denver. Juwan Howard had 19 points and 13 rebounds for Denver, which has lost two in a row following a three-game winning streak. "We couldn't get the slide stopped," Nuggets forward Ryan Bowen said. "They kept chipping away. It was the first time all year we had a big lead and we just have to learn to keep other teams from coming back." Howard scored 13 points in the first half, when the Nuggets limited the Warriors to 34 percent shooting and opened a 49-40 lead. They used a 16-4 run to open their largest lead at 65-44 on a basket by rookie Nene Hilario with 5:35 left in the third quarter. "In the first half, we weren't competing, we didn't play hard, we were not ready for their toughness and aggressiveness," Musselman said. "We had an emotional talk together at halftime and I thought we came out a completely different ballclub." "Coach cussed us out at halftime," Arenas said. "He said this was war and we're not fighting it. " Golden State had a pair of 11-0 bursts around a basket by Denver. During that stretch, Boykins scored six points and unnerved Nuggets point guards Chris Whitney and Junior Harrington. "Earl Boykins came off the bench with a lot of energy," Arenas said. "He picked up full court, he did all the little things that we were lacking out there." "Midway through the third period, we lost our discipline, our poise, and we started going soft to the rim," Denver coach Jeff Bzdelik said. "Earl Boykins turned the whole game around with his pressure." A jumper and driving layup by Arenas gave the Warriors their first lead at 70-69 with 10:30 to play. After a basket by Donnell Harvey cut the deficit to 83-75 with 5:38 left, Boykins scored five straight points to seal the win. He said he never had any doubt his team could come back. "I've seen it happen," he said. "There's 18 minutes left in an NBA game. They went up 20, so anything's possible." Troy Murphy scored 14 points and Antawn Jamison added 11 for the Warriors, who shot 40 percent (29-of-72) from the field and made 31-of-37 free throws. Harvey scored 13 points and James Posey added 11 for the Nuggets, who shot 42 percent (32-of-76) but committed 26 turnovers. "We all have to evaluate our game tomorrow, including myself," Bzdelik said. "They did to us what we have done to other teams. We unraveled and we started to put our heads down. Probably the most disappointing loss of the season." Nuggets forward Chris Andersen suffered a broken right thumb when he hit his hand against the backboard trying to block a shot early in the second quarter.
