Jazz keep composure, Nuggets melt late as Utah advances

SALT LAKE CITY (NBA.com exclusive) -- It was only Game 6 of their first-round series, but the Utah Jazz knew they had to play with a Game 7 type of urgency.

The last thing the Jazz wanted to do was travel back to Denver and play the Nuggets with all their first-round series' marbles on the line. They avoided that scenario by playing as if their playoff lives were at stake on Friday night.

The Jazz eliminated the Nuggets from the playoffs by beating them 112-104 in Game 6 and winning the first-round series, 4-2. In addition to playing with a greater sense of urgency, Utah also executed better and did a better job of keeping its composure during crunch time against Denver.

Utah advances to play the Los Angeles Lakers in the Western Conference semifinals. Game 1 is Sunday afternoon.

"We definitely did," Boozer said of the Jazz needing to close out the series at home. "We didn't want to go back to Denver. We wanted it here for our fans, for us, to move on to the next round. And we were able to do that because we worked our butts off. We got better and better as the series went along."

The Jazz somehow found a way to improve their play despite not having starters Mehmet Okur and Andrei Kirilenko in their lineup. They also found a way to dispose of the Nuggets, despite the Northwest Division champions not going quietly.

In a game that featured 70 fouls, four technicals, 91 attempted free throws, 12 lead changes and 15 ties, Utah simply outlasted Denver. The Jazz led by as many as 15 points in the first half, only to see it all evaporate shortly after halftime.

The Nuggets put together their best stretch of play in three playoff games in Utah late in the second quarter and early in the third. They built an eight-point lead, but it went away once Jazz forward Paul Millsap got going.

Millsap scored 15 of his 21 points in the second half to help spark the Jazz. He tied the game at 67-67 with an up-and-under reverse layup. He had two three-point plays in the fourth quarter, the second of which gave Utah a 98-95 lead, and one it wouldn't relinquish.

"We had some momentum going our way," said Denver forward Carmelo Anthony. "Then Millsap came into the game. I think he got two or three and-ones and that just opened the game up. He got a couple offensive rebounds, post play and some hustle points. I think what he did by coming back in the game made a big difference."

The Nuggets' lack of composure was also a big difference.

The game was tied 95-95 midway through the fourth quarter, and that's precisely when the Nuggets fell apart. Kenyon Martin and Chauncey Billups picked up technical fouls in a span of 65 seconds. During that time, the Jazz built a 102-95 lead.

Millsap got the spurt started by converting the second of his two three-point plays in the fourth quarter. Martin then got a technical for pushing Williams while fouling him. Billups got a technical after arguing a call that went against Anthony. Utah built a 106-95 lead with all of the points in the 11-0 run except for Millsap's layup coming from the free-throw line.

"We had the momentum of the game," Boozer said. "We were making good enough stops. We were making 'Melo work again, like we had been doing. Our mindset was just to come in and keep playing hard."

The Jazz got contributions from several sources to oust the Nuggets.

Boozer led the way with 22 points and 20 rebounds. Millsap had 11 rebounds to go along with his 21 points. Rookie Wesley Matthews had 23 points, five rebounds and four assists. Deron Williams dealt with some foul trouble, but still finished with 14 points and 10 assists.

Ronnie Price filled in nicely for Williams when he sat, and had 12 points on 4-for-6 shooting.

"Everybody played great," Boozer said. "That's the mark of our team. We've had guys step up like that all season when we've had guys out. Paul came in and had a monster game. Ronnie made a huge difference out there and we had a great contribution from Wesley again. He's been playing great the whole series."

Matthews and C.J. Miles also made Anthony work when he had the ball. The two players combined to force Anthony to shoot just 6-for-22 and finish with 20 points.

"I wanted that opportunity," Matthews said. "You live for moments like that. You know, growing up as a kid you always want to go against the best."

Matthews and the rest of the Jazz will get their wish in the next round, facing the defending champion Lakers.
