'Melo puts up 37 in Nuggets' win over Jazz


By Chris Tomasson, for NBA.com
Posted Monday January 18, 2010 1:20AM

DENVER (NBA.com exclusive) -- Carmelo Anthony is right-handed. So is Chauncey Billups.

After Utah coach Jerry Sloan got done with his players Sunday night, chances are they now know it.

"We had the inability to recognize if a guy is right-handed or left-handed and know which side of the floor to play him,'' Sloan said after his Jazz fell 119-112 to Denver at the Pepsi Center. "If a guy is right-handed and you run to his left hand to stop him and he's strong with his right hand, they drove right around us.

"That's something you would learn as you advance in basketball and by the time you get to this level. We usually give them a sheet that has the players we play against and you'd think they could remember that.''

After the game, though, the box score was not a sheet Utah's players enjoying seeing. Anthony, a forward, scored a game-high 37 points for the Nuggets and Billups, a guard, added 29.

Much of their damage was done at the free-throw line. With the Nuggets setting an NBA season high by making 41 free throws and tying a season high by attempting 49, Anthony was 11-of-12 from the line and Billups 17-of-19.

"Not many times did we settle for jump shots,'' Billups said. "We kept attacking them. Once you smell blood and they get into a bonus situation with eight minutes left (in the fourth quarter), you're going to continue to attack and not settle for jumpers.''

Anthony scored 29 points in the second half, including 17 in the fourth quarter. Billups had 10 points in a fourth quarter in which the Nuggets shot 13-of-16 from the foul line.

"You give up 49 free throws on the road,'' said Sloan, whose Jazz got 23 points from point guard Deron Williams. "Are you kidding me? You got no chance here... If we attack the left hand and if you're right-handed and you let them go to the right, the only way you're going to bail yourself out if is you foul them.''

In the end, though, Jazz players couldn't bail themselves out. They trailed by as many as 15 points in the third quarter before cutting the deficit to 85-81 at the end of the quarter and to 85-83 early in the fourth.

Utah was within 110-106 entering the final minute. But then Billups drilled a 25-foot three-pointer with 57.3 seconds left for a 113-106 lead.

"That was the dagger,'' said Nuggets coach George Karl, whose team won it third straight and got steady rookie guard Ty Lawson back after he had missed four games with a sprained ankle. Sloan was pleased to see his team at least fight back from a big deficit. He wasn't pleased, though, with spotty defense, 20 turnovers and at times a lack of intensity.

"How much do you like playing basketball? That's the bottom line,'' Sloan said. "It's not whether you get beat or not because you're going to lose games in this league and you're going to lose in life. But you got to fight back. If you huddle up in the corner in the fetal position, for me that's not what people respect.''

When Anthony was barreling down the lane, Jazz players often got out of the way, if they didn't foul him. Going to hoop much more often than firing up jumpers, Anthony shot 13-of-22.

"I was aggressive,'' Anthony said. "Everybody was aggressive. Attack the rim and see what happens.... From the beginning of the game, that was our key.''

Four of Denver's starters shot six or more free throws. Center Nene scored 18 points and had several highlight-reel dunks.

The win gave the Nuggets (26-14) a 3-0 season series lead over the Jazz (23-18). That assures Denver would win any seasonal tiebreaker.

The Jazz, which had a four-game winning streak snapped, also got 18 points and 13 rebounds from forward Carlos Boozer. And while Williams had 13 assists, he didn't care too much for his five turnovers.

"I turned the ball over too much,'' said Williams, who admitted a sprained right wrist is affecting his passing.

The box score indeed was not a pretty sheet for the Jazz to look at. Sloan wonders if it wouldn't have been so bad had his players paid more attention to the sheets they were given before the game.
