Streaking Jazz top Nuggets for eighth straight victory


By Andrew Aragon, for NBA.com

SALT LAKE CITY (NBA.com exclusive) -- Although Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups were sidelined with ankle injuries, the Utah Jazz knew the Denver Nuggets were still plenty dangerous.

After all, the Jazz lost to the Nuggets at home earlier this season with both players out of the lineup. This time, however, Utah was able to hold off a Denver rally in the second half to win, 116-106 on Saturday night.

The Jazz won their eighth straight game and 12th of their last 13.

This win was probably the most important of Utah's streak and sorely needed by the Jazz (31-18) after they lost their first three meetings against the Nuggets (34-17) this season. Utah, even with Denver's starting backcourt on the bench, needed to show the Nuggets it could actually beat them.

"It was huge," said Jazz forward Carlos Boozer, who was back in the lineup after missing three games with a moderately strained and slightly torn right calf muscle. "They're a team that we can see in the postseason. We want to put a thought in their mind that we can beat you. If we lose all four games to them they're not going to fear us. For us to get this win it lets them know that if we play them in the postseason we can compete with you."

Although they did win, the Jazz didn't send the message they wanted to the Nuggets. They led by as many as 18 in the third quarter, but it took until the final minutes before they could put Denver away. After C.J. Miles hit a 3-pointer to give Utah an 85-69 lead in the third quarter, the Jazz went ice cold from the field. They made just two shots in the final 5:22 of third period.

Denver got within 93-90 early in the fourth quarter before the Jazz regrouped. A quick 9-2 run put Utah in command again with a 102-92 lead.

"It's wasn't the best game for us, but a win is a win and we continue our streak," said Jazz guard Deron Williams. "They're a team that's not going to quit. They're always dangerous because they score."

They can score even with two main players on the bench. Anthony, who entered Saturday's game tied with Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant for the NBA's scoring lead, missed his eighth straight game with a sprained ankle. Billups sprained an ankle while scoring a career-high 39 points in a win over the Lakers on Friday night.

Jazz coach Jerry Sloan wasn't entirely pleased that his team had so much trouble with the Nuggets.

"You look out there and see they don't have Billups and they don't have Carmelo Anthony, so we should've won real easily," Sloan said. "But they beat us here with those two guys out the last time we played them and that shows how strong their team is."

Andrei Kirilenko and Deron Williams each had 22 points to lead the Jazz. Boozer recorded his 30th double-double of the season with 19 points and 13 rebounds. Paul Millsap, who was back in a reserve role with Boozer back in action, had 16 points and six rebounds before fouling out.

Rookie Ty Lawson had 25 points to lead Denver. Kenyon Martin had 16 points and 13 rebounds, Joey Graham had 16 points and Chris Andersen had 15 points.

Boozer played a key role in saving Utah's win. The Nuggets got within six points with a little more than two minutes left in the game. Boozer missed his first shot of the fourth quarter -- that came with 2:13 remaining -- collected the rebound in the paint and scored to give Utah a 112-104 lead.

On Denver's next possession, Boozer slapped the ball away from Martin, Wesley Matthews recovered the loose ball and hit two free throws to allow the Jazz to finally seal the win.

"I felt great," Boozer said. "I think I'm going to continue to improve. My leg felt strong enough and it's going to get better and better."

Denver coach George Karl said Utah's an improved team since the earlier matchups of the season between the two teams, and that Kirilenko is playing at a high level.

"I think offensively they have their efficiency back," he said. "They are really moving the ball. Kirilenko looks like he is playing as well as he has played in three or four years."
