Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Jason Richardson made quite an impact in his return to the Golden State Warriors' lineup. Playing his first game since spraining his left ankle in practice December 31, Richardson scored a career-high 42 points as the Warriors snapped a nine-game losing streak with a 107-97 victory over the Denver Nuggets. "It was much needed and much appreciated," Warriors coach Mike Montgomery said. "It was very nice to have Jason Richardson back tonight. He did a great job. It seemed like he had a lot of confidence. "It's just one win, but for our confidence and where we were, it was very important for us to get this one tonight." Prior to Richardson's injury, the Warriors had won four in a row and averaged 105.5 points, but they looked lost without their leading scorer, scoring 88.4 during the losing streak. "Nobody likes losing," said Warriors guard Speedy Claxton, who had 18 points and seven assists. "We were off to a bad start in '05 but J-Rich saved us. He came through for us. He came back at the right time. I think we'll be pretty good from now on. That's tough to do, to come back from an injury and your first game back, drop a career high but that showed a lot. He wanted to win and he willed us to victory." Richardson put the skid to an end by making 17-of-30 shots and recording a season-high eight assists for Golden State, which has won 10 of its last 14 against Denver. "I had a good night and (when) you have a lot of adrenaline, you just go out there and just play," Richardson said. "I was doing everything I could to keep my conditioning up. It felt great. I love to compete and being on the bench is hard for me." Richardson was able to take advantage of a Nuggets frontcourt that was without Marcus Camby, Nene and Francisco Elson, who were all serving suspensions for their part in an altercation with Minnesota's Michael Olowokandi on Friday. "Marcus is a pretty good shot blocker," Ricahrdson said. "A lot of guys don't want to go up against (Nene) because he's a pretty strong guy. So guys that are not used to playing had to play and we took advantage of it and we kept on attacking." The Warriors led for the entire fourth quarter, although the Nuggets drew within 90-89 on Bryon Russell's layup with just under seven minutes remaining. The game remained close until Richardson took over, providing all of the offense in a 10-0 spurt that made it 107-93 with 58 seconds remaining. "We kept fighting," said Denver forward Carmelo Anthony, who scored 24 points. "We were trading baskets and we couldn't respond to what they did in the fourth quarter." DerMarr Johnson scored 14 of his season-high 22 points in the first half as the Nuggets took a 52-49 lead at the break. "I was able to get to the basket and finish some plays but it doesn't mean anything when you don't win," Johnson said. Troy Murphy scored 10 of his 22 and the Warriors shot nearly 58 percent (11-of-19) in the third period to take an 80-74 edge into the fourth quarter. Andre Miller added 14 points 10 rebounds and nine assists, but he also had 10 of the Nuggets' 22 turnovers. "I thought I made some decent passes, but they just didn't get through," Miller said. "I thought we did pretty good, we fought the whole way until the last four or five minutes. We beat ourselves again so move on to the next game." Denver led by as many as 10 in the second half, but still lost for the seventh time in eight games and fell to 2-7 under interim coach Michael Cooper. "This team (Golden State) had lost nine in a row," Cooper said. "It was going to take everything in the world to beat them and we were right there in the stretch. It's just that we beat ourselves."
