DENVER - Danilo Gallinari scored 21 points and Ty Lawson had 20 points and five assists as the Denver Nuggets used a 15-0 run in the fourth quarter to blow past the Golden State Warriors, 116-105 on Sunday night. Wilson Chandler scored 14 points, grabbed six rebounds and six steals for Denver in his first game since Nov. 12. The win gives Denver the season series against Golden State. The Nuggets won three of the four games and will have the tiebreaker between the teams in playoff positioning in April. Stephen Curry scored a game-high 29 points for the Warriors, including 7-for-9 shooting from 3-point range. The Warriors led 87-79 after three quarters before Denver surged back. Down 89-83, the Nuggets hit five straight shots to go up 98-89. They turned up their defense, too, forcing three turnovers and four consecutive misses by Golden State. Curry brought the Warriors back to within 100-97 with two straight 3-pointers, but Corey Brewer answered with a 3-pointer of his own and Gallinari had putback dunk to extend the lead to 105-97 with 5:21 left. David Lee had 23 points and 13 rebounds and Harrison Barnes scored 21 points for the Warriors, who have lost three of their last four. Golden State led 54-52 at halftime before the Nuggets rallied to take a 62-61 lead early in the third quarter. But the Warriors, who shot 56 percent from the field through the first 36 minutes, got hot from the outside. Barnes hit three 3-pointers in the period and Carl Landry finished the quarter with two baskets to give Golden State an eight-point lead heading into the fourth. Curry scored 21 first-half points, including 16 in the second quarter, as the Warriors built a seven-point lead. Lawson had 16 at the break and helped keep Denver within a bucket at halftime. NOTES: Nuggets coach George Karl is four wins away from 1,100 in his career and two wins shy of tying his good friend, Larry Brown, for sixth on the all-time NBA list. He is 11 wins shy of becoming the second coach to win 400 games for the Nuggets. Doug Moe has the most with 432. ... This was the fourth and final time the Warriors and Nuggets played this year. They played three games in a 19-day span in November. ... Karl said Chandler's return to the court could bolster the team defensively more than offensively. "When we play small, we have to put Gallinari there (at power forward) and now we can use Wilson there some," Karl said. "He is another athlete that is going to help us." ... Lee is the only player in the NBA averaging at least 19 points, 10 rebounds and three assists. He leads the league in 20-point, 10-rebound games with 15, two more than LeBron James.
