Alex English had 39 points as Denver gave San Diego its 21st straight loss on the road.

English has averaged 35.8 points in his last eight games. The Clippers (3-12) have not won on the road since Feb. 20.

"As for Alex English, well, he just had another ho-hum night," said Denver Coach Doug Moe.

Said San Diego Coach Paul Silas: "It's tough out here on the road. We never seem to play well here. I expected us to play a good game after we played well last night. Alex English had a field day against us."

San Diego pulled within seven points at 110-103 with eight minutes to play. English and Kiki Vandeweghe each scored four points in a 14-2 surge that put the Nuggets ahead, 125-105.

Vandeweghe had 10 points and the Nuggets made 74 percent of their shots in the opening quarter to take a 37-33 lead. With English scoring 14 of his 20 first-half points in the second period, Denver increased its margin to 70-58 at halftime.

SuperSonics 133, Warriors 118: Seattle remained unbeaten on the road, winning its eighth straight as Gus Williams scored 36 points.

Seattle shot 63 percent for the game, making 59 of 94 field goal attempts. Jack Sikma had 20 points and Lonnie Shelton 16.

Joe Barry Carroll had 32 points for Golden State, which lost its fifth in a row.

The Sonics played without guard David Thompson, who remained in Seattle because of fluid on his right knee.
