Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- Red-hot Quentin Richardson provided more than enough offense to help the Los Angeles Clippers snap a two-game losing streak. Richardson scored a career-high 44 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to lead the Clippers to a 120-104 triumph over the Denver Nuggets. "I'd hate to have a game like this and lose," Richardson said. "I'm just glad we won. That makes it that much more fun." Richardson appears to be coming into his own in his fourth season. He set his previous career high with 36 points against Minnesota on November 22 and entered with a career-best average of 17.3 points per game. A 39 percent shooter, Richardson was 17-of-30 from the field, including 5-of-9 from the arc. Elton Brand and Corey Maggette added 20 points apiece and Brand grabbed 10 rebounds as the Clippers also ended a two-game home skid. "We were just feeding (Richardson), feeding him until he cools," Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy said. "He had a strong post game and a strong three-point game. I thought tonight was one of his best floor games of the year. He was making good decisions and good plays off of the dribble, and that is important for his growth." Former Clipper Andre Miller and Voshon Lenard had 18 points apiece for Denver. Rookie Carmelo Anthony was in foul trouble for most of the game and scored just 12 points on 5-of-13 shooting as the Nuggets lost their second straight. "It's hard to get going when you get in foul trouble so early," Anthony said. A layup by Earl Boykins with 10:56 left cut the Nuggets' deficit to 86-85. But Los Angeles responded with a 19-6 run and built its lead to 105-91 with just over five minutes to play. Both teams shot well from the field. Los Angeles hit 52 percent (46-of-89) of its shots while Denver was slightly lower at 49 percent (40-of-81). Marcus Camby did not play and the Nuggets struggled on the boards, getting outrebounded, 46-30. "There will definitely be some changes before we play Portland (on Friday)," Denver coach Jeff Bzdelik said. "We need people to rebound. We need people to be disciplined offensively, to move the ball around and get good shots." Los Angeles avenged a 98-86 road loss on November 29 and has won eight of the last 10 meetings. Richardson came out firing, scoring 18 points in the first quarter as the Clippers built a 27-23 cushion. Denver rallied for a 56-52 halftime advantage. "Obviously, we did nothing to stop 'Q' tonight," Bzdelik said. "Every game, it seems there is someone who gets on a roll and is hard to stop. Tonight, that person was Quentin." The Nuggets got a big lift from their bench, which scored 37 points. Rodney White had 16 and former Southern California standout Jeff Trepagnier added 11.
