NBA scores: Nuggets swept in road swing

US PRESSWIRE

The Denver Nuggets lost three straight on the road this week, including back-to-back games Thursday and Friday at Golden State and the Los Angeles Lakers.

It has been a season of streaks so far for the Denver Nuggets, and that didn't change Thursday and Friday nights when they lost to the Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Lakers.

After winning four straight from Nov. 19-25, the Nuggets have now lost three in a row. The team's only wins this season have come on a pair of four-game runs, while six of its eight losses have come on three-game skids.

Thursday night was an especially tough one for the Nuggets. Denver was outscored by nine in the fourth quarter to erase a lead that had lasted most of the game. Andre Iguodala had 22 points and Danilo Gallinari had 20 in the 106-105 loss to Golden State.

Things only got worse on Friday. Denver trailed nearly the entire game as the Lakers drilled 17 threes to win in a 122-103 blowout. Inside, Dwight Howard had 28 points and 20 rebounds to dominate the paint.

For now, the Nuggets sit five games back of the Oklahoma City Thunder in the Western Conference's Northwest Division. They'll look to start another winning streak on Monday when they come home to face the woeful Toronto Raptors.
