Denver Nuggets’ 15-Game NBA Win Streak Halted With 24-Point Loss

March 26 (Bloomberg) -- The Denver Nuggets had their 15-game National Basketball Association winning streak stopped with a 110-86 road loss to the New Orleans Hornets.

Ryan Anderson scored 23 points for the Hornets, who hit 14-of-25 3-point attempts and opened a 21-point halftime lead last night in New Orleans.

Denver was held to 38 percent shooting and was outrebounded 45-32 in losing for the first time since Feb. 22 and falling to 49-23. The Nuggets’ 15 consecutive victories matched the longest win streak in franchise history, set by the 1969-70 Denver Rockets of the American Basketball Association.

New Orleans had seven players score at least 11 points and jumped out to a 14-point first-quarter lead. The Hornets were up 59-38 at halftime and never led by fewer than 11 points during the second half at New Orleans Arena.

The Nuggets’ loss came on a night the Miami Heat pushed their winning streak to 27 games -- the second-longest run in NBA history -- with a 108-94 victory over the Orlando Magic.
