DENVER (TICKER) —The Golden State Warriors try to continue their march toward .500 on Monday when they visit the Pepsi Center to face the struggling Denver Nuggets, who have lost eight in a row.

The Warriors have won 17 of their last 29 games since falling a season-low nine games under .500 on December 22. They are trying to move within three games of .500 for the third time this season - the closest they have been to the break-even mark since the first week of the season.

Golden State has bounced back from a three-game losing streak with consecutive wins, including a 115-93 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday.

Jason Richardson scored 20 points and Troy Murphy collected 17 and 19 rebounds for the Warriors, who won for the fifth time in eight games.

Golden State has lost consecutive road games after winning three straight and is just 9-18 away from the Arena in Oakland this season.

Denver’s latest losing streak reached eight games with a 99-89 loss to the Utah Jazz on Saturday.

Juwan Howard scored 20 points and rookie Junior Harrington added 16 for the Nuggets, who are in the midst of their longest slide since 10-game losing streak from December 9-30.

Denver opens a four-game homestand against Golden State and is 9-18 at the Pepsi Center for the second-worst home record in the NBA.

The Warriors have won the first two meetings with the Nuggets this season, including a 92-82 victory here on November 29. They have won five of the last six meetings with the Nuggets, but have lost 10 of their last 15 in Denver.
