DENVER - Jordan Crawford scored a career-high 41 points and Harrison Barnes added 30 as a squad of Golden State backups beat the Denver Nuggets 116-112 Wednesday night. Barry Larkin Jersey . Crawford beat his previous career high of 39 points set against Miami on March, 30, 2011, when he was with Washington. He surpassed it with a runner that put the Warriors ahead for good at 110-108. Randy Foye, who led Denver with 32 points, raced downcourt in response but his finger-roll rimmed out and Golden State corralled the rebound. With 30 seconds left, Barnes sank a free throw and Draymond Green swooped in to tip in his errant second shot, giving the Warriors a 113-108 lead. Crawford and Steve Blake each missed a free throw over the next 14 seconds, giving the Nuggets an opening. Green was whistled for goal-tending on Foyes 3-pointer with seven seconds left but the call was overturned upon review, leaving the Nuggets trailing 115-112. Anthony Randolph tied his season high with 19 points for the Nuggets, who are missing the playoff party for the first time since 2002-03, the year before Carmelo Anthonys arrival. The Warriors are headed to their second straight Western Conference playoffs, again as the No. 6 seed and this time, theyll face the third-seeded Clippers starting Saturday in Los Angeles. With Andrew Bogut out indefinitely and nothing to play for as far as seeding, the Warriors rested their regulars for the playoffs. Guard Klay Thompson was the only starter coach Mark Jackson put in his starting lineup 48 hours after Golden State secured its first 50-win season since 1993-94. Thompson played just eight minutes but his was an efficient cameo with eight points. Green was pressed into duty in the fourth quarter when Hilton Armstrong fouled out. Nuggets coach Brian Shaw had no problem with his counterpart going with a short bench by design, something Denver has had to do out of necessity for much of the season because of a rash of injuries to the likes of Ty Lawson, JaVale McGee, Danilo Gallinari, J.J. Hickson and Nate Robinson. "It will be like playing ourselves," Shaw said before tip-off. "Well get to see what its like." The Warriors reserves had fresh legs and continually beat the winded Nuggets downcourt. By halftime, Golden State, despite shooting just 9 of 17 from the foul line, was ahead 66-52 behind 22 points from Barnes and 19 from Crawford. The Nuggets opened the fourth quarter on a 12-2 run to take the lead and give the home crowd something to cheer about. This marked the final game for Nuggets trainer Jim Gillen, who never missed a game or a practice in 23 seasons with the Nuggets. He worked for nine head coaches and four interim coaches, five general managers and nearly 200 players, taping up, by his estimate, 15,000 ankles. Shaw called Gillen the fabric of the franchise. "As a first-year head coach, Ive had to rely on him in so many different situations from his experience and knowledge and know-how from things that we need to get together on, from hotel stays to when we need to get together and practice and how much rest guys need and to even in-game strategy, timeouts at the end of the game and things like that," Shaw said. NOTES: As expected, Lawson (sprained ankle) did not play in the season finale, meaning he missed the last seven games of the season. ... The visiting team won all four games in the season series. ___ Follow AP Sports Writer Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: http://twitter.com/arniestapleton ;Adam Duvall Jersey . Mickelson shot a 2-under 70 after opening with a 77 -- his worst score of the season -- on TPC San Antonios AT&T Oaks Course. Lefty was 11 strokes behind leader Steven Bowditch, the Australian who had a 67 to reach 8-under 136. Brandon Finnegan Jersey . The 49ers announced the deal Tuesday. San Francisco selected Lloyd in the fourth round of the 2003 draft.Houston, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Bradley Beal deposited a season-high 33 points and John Wall posted another double-double as the Washington Wizards went on the road and beat the Houston Rockets, 104-103. Beal made five of Washingtons eight 3-pointers and was a perfect 10-for-10 from the foul line. Wall tallied 13 points and 12 assists, his tenth double- double in 15 December games. I had a lot of open looks, said Beal. It was just me playing with confidence. With the win, the Wizards improved to 7-1 over their last eight games against Western Conference foes. James Harden led five Rockets in double figures with 33 points. Josh Smith, in his third game with the club, had only three points with four turnovers on 1 of-6 from the field. Houston fell to 0-2 with Smith in the starting lineup. We just have to find a way to come together and play as a team, Rockets center Dwight Howard said. Howards layup on Houstons second possession of the second half was all it got over the first four-plus minutes. Washington was able to turn a one-point halftime lead to a 55-47 margin during that spurt. The Wizards kept pressing. Paul Pierce scored on consecutive touches to force a timeout, and Wall scored twice and assisted on a Beal triple out of the huddle as Wasshington opened a 71-53 margin. Michael Lorenzen Jersey. . Houston rediscovered its mojo again in the fourth. Corey Brewer scored eight points in a four-minute window, including a 3-ball from the left wing that cut the deficit to two points. Out of a timeout, Harden hit a short jumper to tie the game at 84, but Washington responded. Pierce found Nene for a layup at 4:54, Wall kicked to Beal for a 3 and Marcin Gortat finished at the rim to push the lead back to seven. It reached nine following a pair of Wall free throws. Again, Houston answered. Harden canned one of his patented stepback jumpers and Brewers steal led to a Patrick Beverley transition layup at the end of a 7-0 run. But Washington held on despite a three-point play and a pair of deep, off- balance 3-pointers by Harden in the closing seconds. Beal made four free throws and Wall hit a pair in the final 30 seconds. Earlier, the game was delayed nearly 30 minutes when a basket at Toyota Center had to be replaced. Forty eight seconds into the game, officials noticed one of the rims was crooked. Game Notes Pierce scored 21 points ... The Wizards have won four straight on the road ... Houston has lost four of six ... Brewer and Trevor Ariza both scored 15 points for Houston. Discount NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic ' ' '
