Game Story

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- Juwan Howard and Rodney White helped provide some relief for the Denver Nuggets. Howard scored 20 points and White added 13 of his 19 in the fourth quarter as the Nuggets ended a 10-game skid with a 94-82 victory over the Seattle SuperSonics. It was Denver's first victory since a 92-81 victory over Indiana on December 7. The slide was its longest since a 17-game losing streak from February 12-March 10, 1998. "We've been working really hard with film work and execution," Denver coach Jeff Bzdelik said. "It paid off for us tonight. Finally, we played a productive second half and really made key shots down the stretch." Seattle took a 69-64 lead on Vitaly Potapenko's basket with just under 11 minutes remaining. The SuperSonics went on nearly a five-minute scoreless drought as the Nuggets took control. "Our heads weren't into the game," Seattle coach Nate McMillan said. "I can't understand why we didn't come in here ready to play and focused. We were playing a little selfish." Donnell Harvey and White responded with baskets and rookie Nikoloz Tskitishvili nailed a turnaround jumper to give Denver the lead for good. After a free throw by Harvey, White and rookie Junior Harrington each had baskets to cap the 11-0 run for a 75-69 cushion with 6:27 to go. White's big numbers highlighted a huge night for Denver's reserves. The Nuggets' bench outscored the Sonics' reserves, 35-7. "We're aggressive offensively and most of our shots came in the paint," White said. "We were celebrating like we won the championship. We were really competing and hopefully we can keep winning. We finished strong and we played aggressive, smart and kept our composure at the end." Denver, the worst shooting team in the NBA, made nine of its first 11 shots in the quarter and shot a blistering 77 percent (20-of-26) in the second half. The Nuggets limited the SuperSonics to 34 percent (14-of-41) shooting over the final 24 minutes. "We got the defensive stops and made some shots at the end," Howard said. "It's a big win to beat a good team and do it on the road. A win really helps everybody's confidence." The disparity in those numbers were even more glaring in the fourth quarter, when the Nuggets made 11-of-14 shots and the Sonics connected on just 5-of-22 attempts. Harvey and rookie Nene Hilario each scored 17 points for Denver, which also ended an eight-game road losing streak. The Nuggets topped the 90-point plateau for the fifth time. Hilario also grabbed 13 rebounds and Harvey added nine as Denver held a 40-31 edge on the glass. No player for Seattle had more than six rebounds. "(Hilario) is a young player at the age of 20 and he too is getting better," Bzdelik said. "He was 6-of-7 from the floor with 17 points and 13 rebounds." Gary Payton had 25 points and 14 assists to lead Seattle, which posted a 79-77 win at Denver on Monday. The SuperSonics had a brief two-game skid snapped and lost for the fourth time in six games. But Payton made just 4-of-9 at the foul line, where Seattle was dismal. The Sonics shot a season-low 52 percent (13-of-25) on free throws and rookie Reggie Evans was a woeful 1-of-5. "I don't think we followed the game plan," Seattle forward Rashard Lewis said. "I think a lot of guys' heads were somewhere else. Most definitely, it was selfish and embarrassing to me." Desmond Mason made his first eight shots and scored 13 of his 21 points in the first quarter for Seattle. Lewis and Predrag Drobnjak each netted 13 points.
