Jazz share the wealth in dominant Game 4 victory

SALT LAKE CITY (NBA.com exclusive) -- The Utah Jazz withstood a fast start and a late rally, and now have the Denver Nuggets on the brink of playoff elimination.

The cornerstones of the Jazz franchise -- Deron Williams and Carlos Boozer -- each had double-doubles to lead Utah to a 117-106 win over Denver in Game 4 of their first-round playoff series on Sunday night. The Jazz took a 3-1 lead in the series with Game 5 being played in Denver on Wednesday.

The series wasn't expected to play out this way with Utah being down two starters in Mehmet Okur and Andrei Kirilenko, but the Jazz are in complete control.

"It feels like it (the Jazz being in control) but at the same time it can be deceiving," said Jazz forward C.J. Miles. "We're going back to their home floor, where they can easily win a game and make us have to come back here (for Game 6)."

If the Jazz play in Game 5 the way they did in the middle quarters on Sunday night, the series will be over.

Utah dominated the second and third periods, playing outstanding team basketball. Williams, who finished with 24 points and 13 assists, once again ran the show. He picked apart the different looks the Nuggets threw at him, getting all of his teammates involved in the offense.

The Jazz had five players score in double figures and dished 24 assists. That total doubled the number of assists the Nuggets had in the game. Carlos Boozer was Utah's top scorer, as he had 31 points and 13 rebounds.

"We're putting ourselves in a good position to win the series," Williams said. "Steal one on the road -- that's what we want to do. But we protected home court, and now we're going back 3-1. The series isn't over. We've still got to get ready to play."

The Nuggets started Game 4 on fire, making seven of their first nine shots. But they then reverted to the same problematic style of play that plagued them in Game 3 on Friday. Denver's ball movement slowed to a halt. They had just one assist in the third quarter, and had a total of seven after three periods.

"I can go on and on with what went on out there," said Nuggets forward Carmelo Anthony. "They (the Jazz) got everything they wanted out there. They played hard. You have to take your hat off to them."

A 10-0 run by the Jazz late in the first quarter put them in control. Boozer scored off of a touch pass from Wesley Matthews to put Utah up 24-23, and the Jazz never trailed again. Kyle Korver capped the spurt with a 3-pointer, giving Utah a 31-23 lead.

The Jazz led by as many as 20 in the third quarter before the Nuggets cut it to seven in the fourth. Denver made it close in the final period, thanks to Anthony's 39 points and 11 rebounds and a late surge by Kenyon Martin, but couldn't get a couple of key stops to make it really interesting.

"It looked like we were going to run out of gas before we finished the game, but I thought that we ended up having a good finish," said Jazz coach Jerry Sloan. "C.J. made some big plays and fortunately we made some free throws to be able to finish it off."

A couple of those free throws came from Kyrylo Fesenko, who gave the Jazz a 111-100 lead. He was the right guy for the Nuggets to foul, as he missed three attempts earlier in the game, but he showed some poise by draining both of them.

"After I made the first one, I was so happy I made it," Fesenko said. "After I made the second one, I realized we're going to win this game."

Miles had 21 points for the Jazz on 8-for-15 shooting. Matthews had 18 points and no turnovers in a little more than 42 minutes of play.

Anthony wasn't nearly as efficient. Although his point total was high, he also had nine turnovers. In the final minute of the game with Denver down 115-106, Anthony dribbled the ball of his foot, and it rolled out of bounds. It was his last turnover of the game.

"I did everything to win the game," a frustrated Anthony said. "If I could do it myself, I would. I just don't want my teammates to give up. We're definitely in a dogfight right now. As far as giving up, that's not even a question."
