Recap: Denver vs. Golden State

Denver, CO (Sports Network) - Andre Iguodala poured in a season-high 29 points on Friday, as the Denver Nuggets downed the Golden State Warriors, 102-91, at Pepsi Center.

Danilo Gallinari donated 20 points and seven rebounds, while Ty Lawson finished with 18 points and nine assists to help the Nuggets earn their third straight victory.

"We can't let ourselves get down," Iguodala said of the Nuggets' slow start. "We gotta be ready to start off well, take leads in the first half and then try to put them away with those big runs in the third quarter."

David Lee recorded a double-double with 21 points and 10 boards and Carl Landry chipped in 19 points and eight rebounds off the bench for the Warriors, who had won four of their previous five.

Golden State led 53-47 at the break, but the Nuggets came roaring out of the locker room, scoring the first 15 points of the third quarter to grab a 62-53 advantage just over four minutes into the half.

Iguodala netted nine points, including a pair of 3-pointers, in the decisive Denver surge.

The Warriors pulled within three later in the frame after six straight points from Landry, but the Nuggets quickly distanced themselves with a 6-0 sprint.

Denver carried a 78-70 advantage into the final frame before pressing the margin to double digits with the first four points of the fourth.

Golden State countered with the next four points, but the Nuggets ripped off a 9-0 swing, which Iguodala capped with a dunk to make it 91-74 with 7:28 left in the contest.

The Nuggets led by double digits the rest of the way.

"They turned it up a notch and we ran for the hills," Warriors coach mark Jackson admitted of the second half. "We didn't respond. Give them credit; it was a disappointing way to start the fourth quarter."

A tightly contested first quarter found the Nuggets holding a 23-21 advantage after 12 minutes.

Golden State caught fire in the second, shooting just under 60 percent (14- of-24) from the field to take a six-point advantage into halftime.
