Nuggets take care of business against Warriors


By Geoff Lepper, for NBA.com

OAKLAND, Calif. (NBA.com exclusive) -- Acting coach Adrian Dantley made sure the Denver Nuggets didn't get any worse against teams with sub-.500 records before handing the team back to George Karl.

With Karl at home in Denver, continuing his treatments to combat neck and throat cancer, the Nuggets pulled away late behind Chauncey Billups' 37 points, nine assists and six rebounds for a 127-112 victory Thursday against the Golden State Warriors.

At 38-19, this marks the best 57-game start in the Nuggets' franchise history. But veteran forward Kenyon Martin couldn't help but think about the ones that got away. Denver is 24-9 against teams with winning records, just 13-10 against teams under .500.

"It's games like tonight that get my attention, a team that's under .500," Martin said. "Guys always show up to play money games. That's not my concern. We could be better. I just think about losing to Philly at home, Minnesota at home, at Charlotte. Games like that, they'll come back to bite you."

After two near-misses against the Warriors last month -- including one win at home that came only after J.R. Smith was fouled on a desperation 40-foot heave with 0.4 seconds remaining -- the Nuggets made sure this one didn't go down to the wire, winning every quarter.

"When we started the game tonight, we made the emphasis, 'Hey, we've got to do better against teams that don't have a .500-plus record," said Dantley, who is now 2-1 lifetime filling in for Karl. "We kept talking about that yesterday and today, and we've got to try to do the same thing to Detroit [on Friday]."

Dantley said that unlike his stints subbing for Karl in earlier seasons, both on short notice, he had been inundated over the past few days by callers proffering advice. Most people just told Dantley to be himself, but the Hall of Famer still felt the added weight of sitting in the No. 1 chair.

"You've got more responsibilities," Dantley said. "You want to be perfect. You want to say the right thing. You want to make the right substitution. You want to call the right play."

Karl is scheduled to coach the Nuggets on Friday against Detroit, and work Denver's next two road games. Dantley is expected to fill in on March 10 in Minnesota to kick off a four-game road trip, with Karl's availability after that yet to be determined.

It was a strange feeling for the Nuggets not to have Karl, who has served as Denver's coach since midway through the 2004-05 season, on the bench. Only Carmelo Anthony, Nene and Martin were playing in Denver before Karl's ascension.

"It was different. It was weird," Billups said. "As a player, you always find confidence in that calmness when you look over there at your head coach. But on the flip side, I thought AD did a great job of controlling the game with his playcalling."

Down the stretch, the playcalling was mostly to turn Billups loose. He had six points of his own and dealt three assists that lead to seven other points in a 18-3 run took Denver from a six-point lead to a 124-103 advantage with 3:33 to go.

The Nuggets are now 23-0 in games where they score more than 110 points, including all four wins over the Warriors, who were swept by Denver for the first time since 2000-01.

Stephen Curry led the Warriors with 30 points and 13 assists, but short-handed Golden State ran out of gas at the end. The Warriors only suited up eight players because guard C.J. Watson was held out due to flu-like symptoms and possible appendicitis, and one of those eight was guard Monta Ellis, who was hampered by a bad back during a 6-for-22 shooting night.

The absence of Watson was especially noticeable for how well he's played of late, averaging 23.4 points over the Warriors' previous five games.

"We missed the extra scorer, the extra playmaker," Curry said. "Even his defensive presence, we had a game plan coming in with him in the lineup that was different than how we played tonight."

Center Andris Biedrins, who took a steady stream of sometimes withering criticism from Nelson over the previous 48 hours, scored on a pick-and-roll play with Curry for Golden State's first possession, which helped set the tone.

"Our game plan was to come out and run ball screens pretty much the whole game," Curry said. "We thought we could attack them . . . we had shooters on the other side so we could spread the floor out so that allowed [Biedrins] and Ronny [Turiaf] to have a lot of open looks down the middle."
